BASGAMES GFA 5.2.2023
The twelve best games from the 33 games for the XPRO VGA gaming console
written and tested in AstroChip 2.1
are contained as ATARI ST mono programs in this package.
They are not tested on a real machine, but these versions of
the games were converted from Omikron Basic 3 to GFA Basic 3.6.
The programs (executable PRG and with GFA 3.6 Interpreter) run
with the emulator hatari 1.8.0 and its built-in
Running the games with hatari (in 2023):
Download hatari (a .zip) and extract the files to your hard
disk. Extract the files from BASGGFA.zip to the folder
with the hatari files. Start hatari.exe. Press F12.
Select "Hard disks". Select "Browse" next to "GEMDOS drive"
and select the folder with the files from BASGGFA.zip.
Choose "Back to main menu". Select "Reset machine" and "OK".
Double-click "DISK C" and select a game-folder with
double-clicks. The program file of a game (.PRG) can be
double-clicked to start it.
The games also run with Steem v3.2
but they are not compatible to the STEmulator from the late 1990s.
The TOS-ROMs tos1.02de and tos2.06de were tested with Steem v3.2.
GFA BASIC was chosen as programming language to get games
compatible to EmuTOS. They are not much different from the
games in the BASGAMES download written in Omikron Basic 3.
Those games are compatible to STEmulator, but not to EmuTOS.
One feature was added to Bworld: the game is also won, if
one player has got 50 points. If he hits a cannon, he gets five
points, for example.
The subfolders in the BASGAMES GFA download contain texts with
information in German, how to play the games. I think you can
also play them, if you just try out.
The games from BASGAMES GFA can also be played with the Hataroid
app and its built-in EmuTOS-image. Hataroid is available for
There are also versions of the games for other systems.
The twelve games are also contained in
JAVA 1.8 and
BrowserBasic2.05dp for old JAVA versions
(JAVA 1.1.8 to JAVA 1.8). You can also download the original
DOS-versions of the games from the "old download archive (1997-2002)"-page
