Lesson P11 - Joystick Reading on the Atari 800 / 5200

Post by akuyou » Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:24 pm

We're going to handle joysticks on the Atari 800 and 5200,

Unfortuantely the PIA chip which handles the digital joystick on the Atari 800 does note exist on the 5200 (where we have to use analog joysticks)

This is one of the few times the machines are different, and means We're going to have to handle joysticks very differently!

As always, this Video lesson matches the text lesson on my website, and you can get the source code as well...
