Hi,

I have noticed that quite a few versions of the same .atr file exist on download sites. For example

DonkeyKong.atr
DonkeyKong(a).atr
DonkeyKong(k-file).atr

My question is what does the (k-file) and (a) in the filename mean?

DonkeyKong.atr .. is original not modified disk.
DonkeyKong(a).atr .. is original but probably play and hiscore posted or some other slight modification to disk
DonkeyKong(k-file).atr .. Ken Sider's developed this format for storing a cracked rom into an ATR. It can be found on this web site...
