A8E is a freeware Atari 800 XL emulator written in C by Sascha Springer and has been developed completely from scratch. It uses the SDL library for the user interface and the audio and graphics (via OpenGL) output.

A8E features nothing special compared to the other excellent Atari 8 bit emulators floating around and in case of having some trouble with A8E you should stick with the others for a better experience.

In fact, the A8E project is just a personal effort to provide a solution to preserve the Atari 8 bit programs and a challenge for myself to get this emulator working, nothing more. The primary goal was to develop an emulator based on freely available informations and documents about the Atari 800 XL.

So at last I decided to share the result with the Atari community and here it is!

Have fun...
