a5200DS is an Atari VCS 5200 console emulator. It is based on A5200DS by Alekmaul.

Features

  • Most things you should expect from an emulator.
  • Most games run at full speed on a DSi or above.
  • For the DS Lite/Phat many games will play, but there may be some lag in sound/speed for the more complex games.

Installation

To use this emulator, you must use NTSC compatible roms with a52/bin format.

You also need the 5200.rom rom bios in the same folder as A5200DS.NDS (alternate locations it can be /roms/bios/ or /data/bios/) to use this emulator properly.

There is a built-in open-source replacement BIOS which will work for some games but doesn't have full compatibilty so it is still strongly recommended you use 5200.bin.

When the emulator starts, click on the cartridge slot to choose a file.
