Figured out the problem with Stella -- the ROMs all have to be in a folder called stellads. Still, the selection menu is buggy as crap, making choosing the ROM a real hit-or-miss affair, and the games don't run well. Ugh.

Still nothing on PokeyDS despite loads of searching on Google.

I figured it might be the same problem, but the developer says "Put your Atari files in the directory where you want." Naming the folder pokeyds doesn't do the trick, though.

For PokeyDS they have to actually be Atari 800 XL cartridge .bins (not 5200), or at least thats all I ever got to work with it. Even then though, everything ran extremely slow and was unplayable.

As for Stella, it's been a little hit or miss. A lot of things run very slowly or refuse to load. But I have gotten a handful of games to run well, even though they still take a bit to load:

Asteroids
Atlantis
BattleZone
California Games
Centipede
Chopper Command
Commando
Cosmic Ark
Fast Edie
Frostbite
Pitfall (little slow)
Qbert
SeaQuest
Solaris
Yars Revenge
