Atari 5200 cartridge types



  • When I try to run an Atari 5200 game, I get a black screen.
    When I touch controller's d-pad, I gt a menu asking me what type the cartridge is.
    Is there a way to enter a list so that the emulator knows what type of cartridge each game is?

    I have found a list on the retropie site:

  • On 6.0 (Ive not upgraded due to all the wee issues needing ironed out) it plays all games perfectly - they just load and run.
    Sounds like the "old" issue where you had to let the emulator know what cartridge type you had.

    Did your games run okay on 6.0?



  • I am on 6.1-dragonblaze and I definitely need to tell the emulator the cartridge type.
    Since it was an auto-update, is it possible some elements didn't get updated?

    I don't know how it behaved before, it's the first time I put the 5200 roms.
