I finally figured out a way to post my "The MOST comprehensive list of Atari VCS/2600 homebrews ever compiled." publicly, while I can edit and update it without doing a manual upload and ending up with a different URL/link each time.

 

It is available here: https://1drv.ms/x/s!...VbQayev1Wc1QprN

 

It's pretty much been a daily 3+ yrs. process, and I figured I'd finish scouring the "other website" forums before releasing it.

 

Enjoy!

Obviously a labor of love.  You did a nice job, and congratulations on finding a way to easily keep it up to date.

I added a new column to "The List" - Atari Flashback Portable Compatibility column, so as I'm testing them, they will be updated.

in case you missed it...... there's work being done to fix some of the games that do not work on the Portable so that they can be played or even made better for the AFP! Here's where we are at right now:

 

Crash Course (hb) removed title screen

<bankswitch conversions> bankswitch conversion of several games

RealSports Tennis background colors edited

Juno First (hb) ROM modified

Star Raiders hacked original ROM for AFP use - No Keypad

Kool Aid Man hacked in 2002 - this works on the AFP

Tapper fixed the screen cutoff at bottom

Budweiser Tapper (hack) fixed the screen cutoff at bottom

Acid Drop (hb) fixed loading issues - but still cutoff at bottom

Beat'em and Eat'em <partly fixed> loads but no control

Custer's Revenge fixed loading issues

Enduro raised the screen to see number of cars & days

Jawbreaker fixed loading issues

Lochjaw fixed loading issues

Marauder fixed loading issues

Shark Attack fixed loading issues

Squeezebox fixed loading issues

Words Attack fixed loading issues

Scrollout (hb) Flashback Portable Support added

Fix it Felix Sr. (hb) fixed loading issues

Defender II changed "game select" S button for smart bombs

Defender II The difficulty switches now work for inviso & hyperspace.

Raiders of the Lost Ark select and reset to move the marker & the color switch to drop

Bloody Human Freeway (proto) fixed the collision problems

Circus Atari {built in game} D-pad not as good as paddles - use Zellers "Circus"

Freeway fixed the collision problems

Double Dragon Arcade updated sprites and made it compatible w/ AFP

Raiders of the Lost Ark Difficulty switch removed.  The spider gfx fixed.

Bloody Human Freeway (proto) Glitch removed from the corner.  Free space used to tally the number of times run over (max99).

Freeway (2 Players) added a Player 2 feature for the AFP

Backgammon/Nackgammon hacked to use the D-pad and buttons for Player 1 & 2

 

To find the ROMs for these games, go to my homebrew list (link in the first post of this thread), then click the AFP tab at the bottom of the Excel spreadsheet. All titles are linked to the downloads.
