The Atari 7800 Developer's Page

 

Here is what you need to build a cart-dumper/developer's system for an Atari 7800.  You connect a PC's parallel port to a joystick port on the 7800.  You can dump 2600 and 7800 carts, and develop 2600 and 7800 games.  For 2600 games, you can upload files maybe 10 times faster than a Supercharger!  The DEVKIT.ZIP file contains a PDF describing the construction details as well as a ROM image for a new BIOS for the 7800 and software for the PC.
