I know there is close to no code in here, but check out the music - really really good ones by Cerror :-)

So, how do i load it in an emulator? If I try to load the .tos file as a disk it complains that it's not a valid disk, if I try to load it as the tos file it does silently rejects it. (This is with nostalgia on osx)

Graphics/design is truly horrible. The tunes are very nice though! Only listened to the first three so far but it's already enough for a thumb.

psonice: .tos is a normal Atari executable file, put it on a floppy or harddisk and run it from the desktop. Nostalgia is nostalgic in itself and will not replay the tunes even nearly correct. Try Hatari instead.

I'd already tried hatari and got nowhere :) Didn't realise .tos was also a program extension.

Nearly there now though.. created an msdos hard disk image with disk utility, and put the .tos file on it. Crash.. :( Then created a blank floppy and copied the file to that, and selected a proper rom instead of that emurom one. It opens, then drops back to the desktop :( Maybe wrong rom version still? Or emu settings somewhere?

1. download the latest Hatari release here
2. get a suitable TOS image here
3. Start up Hatari and go to the settings (as with any OS X app) select a folder to act as an Atari harddrive (gemdos drive!) and mark so it boots. Then select a TOS ROM, machine type, memory etc. Save settings.
4. Make sure the demo is in the folder that acts as an Atari harddrive and boot up the Atari and run the demo.

Ahhh, I have life! \o/ That's almost exactly what I did, except I made an image file for the hdd instead of using a folder. I guess that must have somehow messed it up. Odd!

I was about to say I have a tune playing but can't get rid of the stupid hatari menu.. but loading the demo instead of hatari.tos helps :D I'm having a special day it seems.

Sounds good so far, will vote when I've heard a bit more.
