EmuTOS 1.0

Post by anodyne » Wed Sep 02, 2020 2:05 am

The EmuTOS developers are pleased to announce the release of EmuTOS 1.0.

In case you didn't know, EmuTOS is a GEMDOS-compatible operating system for Atari computers and is a free and open source replacement for common TOS images for Atari emulators.

The main new features of EmuTOS 1.0 are:
- BIOS: Change Spanish character set to Atari ASCII, like Atari TOS
- BIOS: Improve joystick compatibility with Atari TOS
- EmuDesk: It is now equivalent to the Atari TOS 2/3/4 desktop
- VDI: Improve text display
- General: Add Polish language support

You can easily test EmuTOS on your real Atari hardware. Get emutos-prg*.zip from the link below, extract the PRG matching your favourite language, put it on a floppy (or hard disk partition), run it on your Atari, and you're done!

You can download your preferred binary archive here:

Hehe... EmuTOS is finally mature :mrgreen:
Of course there will always be things to add or improve.

Hi Anodyne,

I heard EmuTOS has display drivers built in for ET4000 cards, does it also have Mach64 drivers built in? & are there any caveats in using it on a TT, I am wondering about Thunder/Storm compatibility.
