Now I have it where if I delete .atari800.cfg and then start an Atari 5200 game it works fine. But then Atari 800 games get an error that the computer crashed. If I delete the .atari800.cfg and then launch an atari 800 game it works but I can no longer launch atari 5200 games as I get the blue screen and note pad error. I tried adding the items to my /opt/retropie/configs/atari5200 retroarch.cfg and such but hat has not positive impact. The only differences between the two .atari800.cfg are:
MACHINE_TYPE=ATARI 400/800 OR or Atari 5200
RAM_SIZE=48 or 16
When the 5200 works it has these:
ENABLE-NEW-POKEY=1 versus 0 when the Atari 800 works
STEREO_POKEY=0 versus 1 when the Atari 800 works
Note if I delete the .atari800.cfg in ~/ either type work the first time so it builds the proper file. I would like to be able to do this without having to delete the .atari800.cfg everytime I want to switch between 800 and 5200. Any ideas?
