Chapter 4: Finding Software to use with your Interface

PC Software

As of the initial release, only the APE for Windows software, version 3.0.0 or higher, supports the USB interface.

Both the trial version and registered versions of APE support use of the USB interface, though some APE and ProSystem features may be unavailable in the trial edition.

As time allows, developer documentation will be posted to this space so other SIO2PC programs can be modified to support the interface.

I don't like to sell features or products that don't exist yet, so if you do not intend to use the APE for Windows software, it is highly recommended that you purchase or continue to use the Serial/RS232 Universal Adapter until 3rd party support documentation for the USB interface becomes available.

Atari Software

The best part of SIO2PC is you are able to access gigantic internet archives of Atari software. You can download these disk images with your PC and then run them directly on the Atari using your SIO2PC/APE style software!

These are some links to sites containing Atari 'ATR' disk images. 'ATR' images are the type of images used by all SIO2PC software.
