    I have more than a handful of Atari 2600 ROMs (including many modern homebrew {if it can handle them}) I would like to play on the DS, how would I use them. I looked at Chuckster's homepage for Stella DS and he said you had to recompile it from source for a new ROM. Am I understanding this correct, that if I don't want to use his selection of ROM files I have to pack it for each and every ROM I want to play, or can I compile a whole folder of ROMs?

    Thanks for any and all replies. I didn't find any in depth info on Stella DS through the search function.

    Stella runs .bin files. so if thats what your roms are you should be good to go.
    I never had to recompile anything to get mine running, just made a folder named Stella and added my .bins

    Vato.....

    Thanks. Have you tried any of the newer homebrew? Like Stratogems or Jammed?

    Once again thanks for the response.

    I got StellaDS to work with my ROMs (*.bin they were always bins I just have a bad habit of calling them ROMs), I just need to trim my file names so it is easier to navigate the list.

    Thanks for your input.

    No, I haven't. But I'm sure to now,
    I love checking out new (to me) homebrew on the DS.=)


    edit: glad you got it running. Atari2600 was the first system I ever had, and being able to replay the ancient classics on the portable DS is a blast
