That works. If you want any help with Atari emulation let me know as I
have something on par with 200 Atari games on the family PC that my
wife and son like playing from time to time. I have everything from
original 1978 Asteroids to Sega's original version of Zaxon I'd be
very surprised if I don't have original donkey Kong in my collection,
but its been ages since I took a very close look at what I actually do
