The Atari 7800 ProSystem, or simply the Atari 7800, is a home video game console officially released by Atari Corporation in 1986. It is almost fully backward-compatible with the Atari 2600, the first console to have backward compatibility without the use of additional modules.It was considered affordable at a price of US$140. The 7800 has significantly improved graphics hardware over the 2600. This validation key in no way interferes with emulation. The validation code in the BIOS runs on the emulator and gives a valid result just like in a real 7800. What the key does prevent is someone making new 7800 carts that can be run on unmodified 7800's. kat5200 - New and upcoming Atari 5200 emulator for Windows and Linux Atari800 - Excellent Atari 8-bit and 5200 emulator, ported to many platforms.

Beware the result of customization becomes distorted. The "ATARI" looks so wide on the spreadsheet. Not so on the screen. But I got PACMAN+ to work, so it can be done! Now all we need is a program to convert the 1's and 0's on the spredsheet into hex. Good luck with that!.

BIOS, but I'm ready to learn. To my knowledge there are several flavors of the 7800 operating system, and there may be more: Atari has come up with a number of emulators in recent time, starting from 2600 to the 7800, Atari Gaming Corporation has been a pioneer and one of the leaders in the gaming industry and over the passage of time the console industry has seen a sea rise and there is a growing demand pertaining to the efforts being put in by the leaders of the industry such as Nintendo and now Atari
2) I noticed the "+" in "PACMAN+" didn't look too good so I mopped that up. Of course now Bob has to decide if he wants to endorse this newer avatar. New files and photo...Thanks for the work on this. I've been wanting to put a bios in my 7800 that has a game for quite some time. I was planning on Asteroids, but Pole Position II is even better!

See Setting Core Options.Despite having the capability to support sound chips in cartridges, almost no 7800 cartridges feature POKEY hardware for enhanced sound. Ballblazer, released in 1987, uses the POKEY to generate all music and sound effects. Similarly, Commando, released in 1989, uses a POKEY to generate in-game music while the TIA generates the game's sound effects for a total of 6 channels of sound.

I don't know why, but they do. The question is, what works on the 1986+ NTSC machine? Does anyone have a 1986+ machine open and tried these operating systems? It's a simple play-n-play op.My advertised PART 3 discussion is on hold for the moment, as (a) I don't have it working yet, and (b) I'm 100% occupied with ROBOTRON.

But need that disassembly complete so we can hopefully port to PAL, and that's what I'm working on.The Atari 7800 remained officially active in the United States between 1986 and 1991 and in Europe between 1989 and 1991. On January 1, 1992, Atari Corp. formally announced that production of the Atari 7800, the Atari 2600, the Atari 8-bit computer line, and the Atari XE Game System would cease. (It has since been discovered that Atari Corp. continued to develop games such as Toki for the Atari 7800 until all development was shut down in May 1993.) By the time of the cancellation, Nintendo's NES dominated the North American market, controlling 80% while Atari Corp. controlled just 12%.

Maria DMA timing has been improved further, with the addition of accurate DMA hole. Upon the 1984 BIOS version of the 7800 game machine start-up, (assuming you're not using a non-encryption EPROM or 74LS174 BIOS switch bypass) you will see a rainbow barber pole Fuji logo as well as "ATARI" in a racing stripe. You can personalize this by putting your name or graphics of your choice. That's right, you can modify the BIOS code to suit your own personalization. Best part is you don't have to have the code "encryption-signed" to work. Name: Description: EMU7800: This is an Atari 7800 emulator by Mike Murphy for Windows with .NET framework installed. ProSystem Emulator: The ProSystem emulator is a new 7800 emulator It was written in the C/C++ language and uses the Windows API and DirectX to help emulate the display, sound and input The digital signature long prevented homebrew games from being developed until the original encryption generating software was discovered. When the original digital signature generating software was turned over to the Atari community, development of new Atari 7800 titles began. In addition, the Atari community has slowly uncovered the original 7800 development tools and released them into the public domain. New tools, documentation, source code and utilities for development have since been created which has sponsored additional homebrew development. Several new commercial Atari 7800 titles such as Beef Drop, B*nQ, Pac-Man Collection, Combat 1990, Santa Simon, and Space War have been released.

Note that the emulators let you fully manipulate disks! You can accidentally reformat your rom, and it will look the same from the outside. Many games require you to have a blank disk to save player state on. Don't mess up and save your player file over the game! Similarly, quite a lot of "player disks" and "scenario disks" and the like out there actually have people's saved games on them.

It was considered affordable at a price of US$140 This is pretty interesting. I compared the two BIOS's and the only difference is the last two bytes which are the IRQ (interrupt) vector. I then remebered that when I first started working on a 7800 emulator there was a BIOS ROM that was missing the last byte or two
Message2KevinMos3> Yes, the POLE POSITION2 has the full ATARI BIOS incorporated, so you will still have the ATARI boot-up screen. The version above does have the 2 bit error fixed on the ATARI seond "A" but that's easy to do, just change address $0E10 from $0F hex to $03 hex. Let me know if/when you finish Kung Fu.

In aid to this relatively complex op, I have created an excel spreadsheet that shows the original design, and enables someone to attempt this difficult & fun graphical art project. However as a result, I found there was an error on the lower right of the second "A" in "ATARI". I put XX on the spreadsheet to show where there were two 1's where there should have been 0's. Therefore, at address $0E10 there should be $03 hex, not $0F hex. Talk about trivial pursuit! Welcome to replayers.org BIOS section.

The The Atari 7800 ProSystem, more commonly known as the Atari 7800, was the successor to the unsuccessful Atari 5200.. The system was originally released in California in June 1984 however Atari's Consumer Division was sold to Commodore founder Jack Tramiel just a few weeks later, and he wanted to focus on Ataris computer line rather than a new console The ProSystem Emulator is an Atari 7800 emulator for the PC and Windows OS. The emulator was written in C++ using the Windows API and DirectX. It emulates the Atari 7800 NTSC and PAL TV standards. Download Prosystem v1. To compensate for this, GCC's engineers allowed games to include a POKEY audio chip in the cartridge which substantially improved the audio quality. To ensure software developers had an economical means of producing better sound than TIA, GCC had originally planned to make a low-cost, high performance sound chip, GUMBY, which could also be placed in 7800 cartridges to enhance its sound capabilities further. This project was cancelled when Atari was sold to Jack Tramiel.
Warning. MESS is a little picky about BIOS files. Before it runs the emulator, it verifies the BIOS ROM to make sure it is correct. The 7800.rom file that I found didn't agree with MESS, and so even though I had everything set up correctly, MESS refused to put Atari 7800 in the Available category. I had to scroll down and click the Console tab to find the Atari 7800 button The following is an example of the original BIOS modified from "ATARI" to "PACMAN+". There's only 11 x 19 = 209 bytes to manually modify. What could possibly go wrong? EVERYTHING! From start to finish, the graphics design and implementation can take 3,4,5 hours. Probably more like 8 hours the first time. That's why I created an example to spur you along. The main thing is to start inputting at address $0CF1, and skipping where explicitly stated, and ending at address $0E17h. If anything ever seems not-quite-right, it probably isn't. That's been my experience. GL2A.
, bolded device types are the default for the specified user(s):True a lot could be added to the BIOS. If you wire up your BIOS socket for a 32K EPROM, and only 4K (or less actually) is used by the NTSC BIOS, and less than 500 bytes for the PAL BIOS, there's a lot of room. Now I have an update to PART 2, nothing on PART 3 yet.Is it possible to have a BIOS with a built in game that also keeps the ATARI boot up screen? I'd like to use one of these BIOSes, (Pole Position II) in particular, but I've always liked the boot up screen and don't want to lose it.Thanks for the responses. It was an interesting read on DS, many thanks to RD. I never heard of him before. Kevin was creative in making a possible new avatar for PMP, but I'm not so sure he wants to see that right now. Thanks for posting the photo though - it looks sharp, except that "N", I was running out of room. It is what it is. Posted a few years ago it would have been a hotter topic, but I never heard of atariage.com until September 1 last year. The suggestion for a "socket" by Emucoder is a good thought (see Part 3 that hasn't been published yet), however, every game would have to start at the same location, which isn't the case. The BIOS could be "hard-wired" to jump to a fixed location but then every game would have to be hacked to receive the jump and then immediately jump to the original game start location. Not recommending that. I'm thinking internal Gaming On Board (GOB) is kind of a toy or gadget, but in 1984 it was very innovative. I still want to learn more about how the internal Maria & external Maria & 2600 mode switching works. And one way is to dive into it and try different things. Having examples helps too…
The Atari800 core will generate a '.atari800.cfg' config file in RetroArch's home directory and will add the required BIOS files it detects in the system directory to the config file. CoolROM.com's Atari 7800 ROMs section. Browse: Top ROMs - By Letter - By Genre. Mobile optimized The MARIA's approach has advantages and disadvantages when it comes to generating graphics. It excels at moving large numbers of sprites on a static screen. Its flexible design enables games with a pseudo 3D appearance such as Ballblazer (1987) and F-18 Hornet (1988). While side-scrolling games in the vein of Super Mario Bros. are possible on the system (such as 1990's Scrapyard Dog), it is harder to develop such a title than on a tile-based system such as the NES. The Atari 7800 ProSystem was the first console from Atari, Inc. designed by an outside company, General Computer Corporation (GCC). It was designed in 1983–1984 with an intended mass market rollout in June 1984, but was canceled shortly thereafter due to the sale of the company to Tramel Technology Ltd on July 2, 1984. The project was originally called the Atari 3600. Processor: 6502 (note: This is Atari's custom 6502 which can be halted to allow other devices to control the bus)
The Atari 2600 is the first console I ever played games on! I will forever have a love of the Atari 2600 version of Pac-Man despite being a terrible version simply because it was the first game I. IF and ONLY IF you have access to EPROMS, EPROM erasers, and EPROM programmers, and know how to read schematics should you attempt the following. And of course you need solder and a 50W soldering iron and a small amount of solid-guage wire. Using a 28-pin header/component carrier as a wiring platform to interface a 28-pin socket for your new BIOS EPROM code projects, wire-up the following circuit, per the atached schematic. There are two versions, the first 2x27128 and the second is a 1x27256 design (simpler). If you haven't done this before, I recommend wiring the 1x27256 which is smaller and easier to wire, and looks the neatest when installed in the 7800. The wiring job simply stated, wire every header pin to EPROM socket pin, pins 1 through 28 to pins 1 through 28, EXCEPT pins 20 and 22 are reversed (designed to keep hackers from making this mod work), and invert the input to pin 20 using a 74LS00 chip. In the 1x27256 version, both 27128 and 27256 will work. You can now install Bob's "PACMAN+" BIOS in the U7 position of your 7800, of course observing the pin 1 orientation.Finally, you can load any content files compatible with the system chosen through RetroArch's Load Content menu.Legacy Engineering was later commissioned to create another 7800 project that was subsequently cancelled after prototypes were made. I am unsure what BIOS means and what emulators need a BIOS to run. The systems I am trying to emulate are:Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 7800, Atari Jaguar, Atari Lynx, ColecoVision, GBC, GB, GBA, N64, NeoGeo Pocket, NeoGeo Pocket Color, NES, SNES, PC-Engine, Sega 32x, Sega Genesis, Sega Master System, and virtual boy

Atariage (Albert in particular) - For providing a place for me to ramble on The emulator, though, has the facility to create carts, and this can add the missing header back in. Then you'll never see this menu again. Do this by going to the emulator menu (F1), Cartridge Management, Extract ROM from cartridge, save it, then Create Cartridge from ROM image, and select the file you just created. You will be asked which cart type to use. A handy list gathered by forum members is here: https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/16556/cartridge-type-code-list-for-atari-5200-games. Be sure to test after making your choice; if it doesn't work, just try another one. Go through the entire 5200 library (it's not that big!) and you'll never get the choose cart menu again. Be sure to have a backup of all your 5200 roms, of course.MARIA supports a palette of 256 colors and graphics modes which are either 160 pixels wide or 320 pixels wide. While the 320 pixel modes theoretically enable the 7800 to create games at higher resolution than the 256 pixel wide graphics found in the Nintendo Entertainment System and Master System, the processing demands of MARIA result in most games using the 160 pixel mode. Some workaround where created for this problem, but finally in August of 2001 the real solution surfaced. First the folks at Classic Gaming Expo released the original Atari ST utility that was used to generate the validation code. Frank Palazzolo then used this file to help create a PC based utility for creating the validation code:
In response to criticism over ergonomic issues in the 7800's Pro-Line controllers, Atari later released a joypad controller with the European 7800. It was similar in style to controllers found on Nintendo and Sega Systems. The joypad was not available in the United States. . I've read a thread where someone else was having trouble, which has made me hesitant until I'm clear on what needs done. The Atari 7800 ProSystem was released a full two years after it was designed and tested. The console was Atari's attempt to compete with the NES and Sega Master System
In both emulators, the atari.cfg file is shared between Atari computers and the 5200. In lr-atari800, the core options likewise apply to both by default. However, for either emulator, if you have a core options file in your atari5200 directory, it will let you have separate settings for just the 5200 system.With the information below, one could update/personalize their 7800 machine by touching-up their BIOS. Now as I said, this is complex, although I've already done the coding for Bob's PACMAN+ graphics. The background and procedure follows, but you can skip all that and download the goodies at the bottom if you already know what you're doing, and in less than 5 minutes you'll view the custom racing stripe start-up screen.

An emulator is a program that has the ability to imitate another program, device, or computer. The ProSystem emulator imitates the Atari 7800's CPU, video, audio, joystick controls, etc On the other hand, because of the way artifacting is implemented in the emulators, turning it on for all games will make text harder to read and many graphics not look crisp in games that no hi-res mode. The Atari 7800 is a video game console released by Atari in June 1986 (a test market release occurred two years earlier). The 7800 was designed to replace the unsuccessful Atari 5200, and re-establish Atari's market supremacy against Nintendo and SEGA.With this system, Atari addressed all the shortcomings of the Atari 5200: it had simple digital joysticks; it was almost fully backward.
While the 7800 can actually play hundreds of titles due to its compatibility with the Atari 2600, there was limited third-party support for the 7800 and fewer than 100 titles were specifically designed for it. I just got game today, and as expected the game won't get past the Atari logo because of the compatibility issue between NTSC and pal, I found someone in atariage that does Atari 7800 mods to see it he can MOD the console to play pal games, it's a long shot but worth tryin NTSC filters do not work in this emulator. Retroarch will default to "Old artifacts." No other choices will render correctly, but you can use the F1 menu to switch between four different versions of artifacts which will give different colors. As a rule of thumb, you'll find that most games are either mode 1 or GTIA.
In addition, custom BIOSes can also be loaded; in fact, the default recommendation for an OS B BIOS is actually a hacked version from the PCXFormer emulator. The Atari 7800 is a 8-bit video game console.It was competing with the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Master System.It was Atari's third-to-last attempt to create another video game system that would be a successor to the Atari 2600.It was a short-lived success. The Atari 7800 is backwards compatible with Atari 2600 games, but not Atari 5200 games. The Atari 7800 is also compatible.

By the end of 1986, Computer Entertainer claimed the Atari 7800 had sold 100,000 consoles in the United States, less than the Master System's 125,000 and the NES's 1.1 million. According to Atari, due to manufacturing problems, it only managed to produce and sell 100,000 units by 1986, including units that had been in a warehouse since 1984. A common complaint in 1986 was a lack of games, including a gap of months between new releases (Galaga's release in August was followed by Xevious in November). By the end of 1986, the 7800 had 10 games, compared to Sega's 20 and Nintendo's 36. Nine of the NES games were third-party, whereas the 7800 and Master System had no third-party games. Eleven titles were developed and sold by three third-party companies under their own labels for the 7800 (Absolute Entertainment, Activision, and Froggo) with the rest published by Atari themselves. However, most Atari development was contracted out. The GameOnBoard (GOB) mods I've tried have all worked on 2600 mode, but something's violating what Maria wants and needs.The Atari 7800 came bundled with the Atari Pro-Line Joystick, a two-button controller with a joystick for movement. The Pro-Line was originally developed for the 2600 and was advertised in 1983, but delayed until Atari proceeded with the 7800. The right fire button only works as a separate fire button for certain 7800 games that utilize it; otherwise, it duplicates the left fire button, allowing either button to be used for 2600 games. While physically compatible, the 7800's controllers were incompatible with the Sega Master System, and Sega's controllers were unable to use the 7800's two-button mode.

BIOS,System,Boot Roms for Atari The original production run of the Atari 7800 languished on warehouse shelves until it was re-introduced in January 1986, after strong 2600 sales the previous Christmas. The console was released nationwide in May 1986 for $79.95. The console's launch under Tramiel was more subdued than Warner had planned for the system in 1984 with a marketing budget of just $300,000 (equivalent to $699,727 in 2019).The keyboard and high score cartridge were canceled, the expansion port was removed from later production runs of the system and, in lieu of new titles, the system was launched with titles intended for the 7800's debut in 1984.

EMU7800, is an Atari 7800 emulator implemented using Microsoft's .NET platform. Most ProSystem (7800) and VCS (2600) titles run well. EMU7800 runs on Windows XP SP3 and higher systems. Performance is sufficient on current hardware. Send me a note if you have questions or feedback. Enjoy! Links: EMU7800 download | SourceForge.ne This is a very nice, easy to use emulator for Windows. The emulation accuracy is very high with only a few glitches here and there. The Atari 7800 ProSystem, or simply the Atari 7800, is a home video game console officially released by the Atari Corporation in 1986. It is almost fully backward-compatible with the Atari 2600, the first console to have backward compatibility without the use of additional modules.It was considered affordable at a price of US$140 (equivalent to $327 in 2019) Some NES titles were developed by companies who had licensed their title from a different arcade manufacturer. While the creator of the NES version would be restricted from making a competitive version of an NES game, the original arcade copyright holder was not precluded from licensing out rights for a home version of an arcade game to multiple systems. Through this loophole, Atari 7800 conversions of Mario Bros., Double Dragon, Commando, Rampage, Xenophobe, Ikari Warriors, and Kung-Fu Master were licensed and developed.
Tim Warner has written several emulator tutorials to help you get started playing games on your home computer. Below are links to 5200-related emulator tutorials Tim has written: The 7800 was actually designed by Gencomp as part of a lawsuit settlement (Gencomp had been sued for releasing a speedup chipset for Atari coin-op Missile Command). The 7800 was compatible with pre-existing Atari 2600 game program cartridges, without the need for expansion modules or turning switches, but was also designed to use enhanced 7800. Web Site: http://emu7800.sourceforge.net/ Author: Mike Murphy Platform: Windows (with .NET Framework installed) Accuracy: Good This is another easy to use Windows emulator, that support both 7800 and 2600 games. What follows here is extremely complex, so if you can't operate a solder iron or never opened your Atari 7800, DO NOT ATTEMPT any of the following operations. This probably should be posted on the programmer's or hacker's corner, but there's not much action over there these days and figured the developers will find this anyways. This is a 3-part series, so buckle-up your seat belts, cuz this just gets more complicated... Download and play the Ms Pac-Man ROM using your favorite Atari 7800 emulator on your computer or phone

Scoby Tech 6,227 view To Mimo: I run internal Asteroids/BIOS all the time and never noticed anything, but I'll try it again soon and leave it alone and see what it does. Are you running with a ROM or an EPROM with a window on it? Be sure to keep you EPROM windows covered, if applicable. I lost a couple of programs on EPROMs over the decades, but they erased and reprogrammed and work fine. If an EPROM, then check your solder conections and reseat the chip, if applicable, unless of course we find the "going crazy" is normal. -BLUE7800 BIOS - This is the source code for the 7800 BIOS ROM. It was originally commented by Keith Henrickson, and further commented by myself.Then you can exit the emulator by pressing F9 and then try the game again or press Shift+F5 to reboot the game.
Don't expect Missile Command, Gorf, and other games that use analog absolute position to work correctly with your controller. Both emulators mimic this analog controls using a mouse, and this may not work well in either core..
The Atari 7800 ProSystem, or simply the Atari 7800, is a video game console released by Atari Corporation in June 1986. A test market release had occurred two years earlier under Atari Inc. The 7800 was designed to replace Atari Inc.'s unsuccessful Atari 5200 and later to re-establish Atari Corp.'s market supremacy against Nintendo and Sega Welcome to the Atari 800 ROMs section of the ROM Database.

The Atari 8-bit family is a series of 8-bit home computers introduced by Atari, Inc. in 1979 and manufactured until 1992 The 7800 has significantly improved graphics hardware over the 2600, but uses the same audio chip. It also shipped with a different model of joystick from the 2600-standard CX40. With a background in creating arcade games such as Food Fight, GCC designed the new system with a graphics architecture similar to arcade machines of the time. Powering the system is a slightly customized 6502 processor, the Atari SALLY (sometimes described as a "6502C"), running at 1.79 MHz. By some measures the 7800 is more powerful, and by others less, than Nintendo's 1983 NES. It uses the 2600's Television Interface Adaptor chip, with the same restrictions, for generating two-channels of audio.
Originally developed in 1984 as the Atari 3600, the Atari 7800 Prosystem was released to the US market in 1986, in an attempt to compete in a revitalized home videogame market. The 7800 was actually designed by Gencomp as part of a lawsuit settlement (Gencomp had been sued for releasing a speedup chipset for Atari coinop Missile Command) . Additional changes developed by Ludovic Jacomme aka Zx-81 (PSP port), Leonis, and gdement. Portions of the Pokey code were adapted from the MAME implementation
While the five BIOS files listed above will deal with 99% of the software you likely want to run, both versions of the emulator support many alternate versions, some of which permit loading software that would otherwise crash or run in graphically distorted form. BIOS. This BIOS is optional if you want the Atari Logo at the beginning of games, otherwise you don't need it because the games work fine without it. The BIOS file name is 7800 BIOS (U).rom. Place your Atari 7800 BIOS in /home/pi/RetroPie/BIOS/ Note: if this BIOS is enabled, PAL ROMs will not work so use it accordingly. Control
Atari 7800 Unless noted in the description, all Console5 products are fully tested and guaranteed. Cap kits are made using name brand, high quality, high-temp parts from Nichicon, Panasonic, and other reputable companies This site contains information on how to build your own Atari 7800 development system and how to work around the encryption key to make home-brew cartridges.
In 2004, Atari (now owned by Infogrames) released the first Atari Flashback console. This system resembled a miniature Atari 7800 and joysticks and had 20 built in games (five 7800 and fifteen 2600 titles). While the unit sold well, it was controversial among Atari fans. Atari had given the engineering firm, Legacy Engineering, extremely limited development timelines. The firm was forced to build the Flashback using NES-On-A-Chip hardware instead of recreating the Atari 7800 hardware. As a result, the Flashback has been criticized for failing to properly replicate the actual Atari gaming experience. Alternatively, you can manually configure how the Atari800 will look for and handle BIOS files. While the Atari800 core is running, you can press F1 to get into the internal emulator menu. From there, You can go to the 'Emulator Configuration' section and then the System ROM Settings section to configure BIOS options. (Press Enter to confirm menu selections and press Escape to go back a menu).MESS: Currently the best emulator to use to run 7800 images. If you are doing development work it would probably be worth compiling your own version of MESS with the debugger option enabled.
If you can't seem to make it work that way, once you have tried to start a game and use F9 to exit the emulator a file called .atari800.cfg will be created in the /home/pi directory.There was a myth surrounding the Atari 7800 for some time that the 7800 cartridges were encrypted. This had scarred a lot of people off attempting to emulate the system since there was no information available on this encryption. It turns out that this is basically false, the cartridges are not encrypted. The 7800's compatibility with the Atari 2600 is made possible by including many of the same chips used in the Atari 2600. When operating in “2600” mode to play Atari 2600 titles, the 7800 uses a Television Interface Adapter (TIA) chip to generate graphics and sound. The processor is slowed to 1.19 MHz, enabling the 7800 to mirror the performance of the 2600's 6507 processor. RAM is limited to 128 bytes found in the RIOT and game data is accessed in 4K blocks.
Atari released a series of 8 bit computers (400, 800, 1200XL, 600XL, 800XL, 130XE, 65XE, 800XE, and XEGS) and a video game console known as the Atari 5200 from 1979 to 1992Navigate to either the Atari 800 or Atari 5200 system on emulationstation and choose a game. Either a screen will open up with a bunch of different cartridge options, or the game will crash. If you are playing a 5200 game then choose a 5200 cartridge option (Option #5 seems to work). You will then get a warning telling you that it needs a real Atari OS. (You need to legally own the 5200 hardware to have the BIOS). Then press F1 to open the menu and navigate down to "Emulator Configuration" and press enter. Then navigate down to System ROM Settings and then press Enter (Quick hint: use the escape button to go back up a step in the GUI).There were few add-on peripherals for the 7800, though its backwards compatibility feature allowed it to use most Atari 2600 peripherals. The Atari XG-1 light gun, which came bundled with the Atari XEGS, was sold separately for other Atari systems and was compatible with the 7800. Atari released five 7800 light gun games: Alien Brigade, Barnyard Blaster, Crossbow, Meltdown, and Sentinel.

All system RAM is available and game data is accessed in larger 48K blocks. The system's SALLY 6502 runs at its normal 1.79 MHz instead of the reduced speed of 2600 mode. The 2600 chips are used in 7800 mode to generate sound and to provide the interfaces to the controllers and console switches.
