Gone but not forgotten…More
By STG - September 2017
We have a lot of ambition, and this project will be updated regularly.
If you have something in mind you like to see in the future on this website, please let us know. We have an open mind and are interested in your opinion.
Stonish.net, the website by fellow member Brume featuring the biggest collection of Atari menudisks, is merged with Atari Legend.
The code for the AtariLegend website is now open-source! We wanted to open the code as well for a long time, but it took some time to reach that point. We now have our own GitHub.
Atari Legend starts a Youtube channel.
The first part of the Atari Legend project has gone open source / open data. From now on, any developer who is interested can download the full database (except the sensitive user related data) and all the screenshots, boxscans and other graphics used for their own project.
A new developer, LynXX, joins the AL team. With his professional webdevelopment skills, the future of the project is looking bright!
The first signs of life. A 'coming soon' demo screen is released and the Atari Legend facebook page is opened. A week later a complete new game is released, cracked by the AL team.
After a period of almost 10 years of complete silence, STG and Brume contact Silver Surfer and explain their ambitions. He decides to join the project again.
Brume shows his Stonish project to STG. After some conversations, motivation rises and development on a new version of Atari Legend begins.
Because lots of people have spent countless of hours working on the AL project and this work should not get lost in time, the complete database is donated to AtariMania, another beautiful database driven Atari ST website.
After a complete burn out of all the coding, Atari Legend slowly comes to a stand still. Many of the team members have other things on their mind and as always, real life gets in the way. The project is put in the freezer.
The AL team is expanding drastically. Quickly the Database grows over 4000+ game entries and 19000+ screenshots. Marcer, Brume and Mug UK work 24/7 to accomplish this task. Atari Legend also becomes a hackers group and starts to release special versions and cracks of games
The bad news of the cancellation of both Pacidemo and Pacigame will be the beginning of something big! STG, Silver Surfer and Brume join forces and start working on a big secret new project.
At the beginning of 2002, Brume is frustrated by the lack of a decent ST forum in the scene, so he uses VBULLETIN to hack something together. This forum's main focus was on demo's and games. A few weeks later Silver Surfer joins the fun and it is decided more topics are added to the forum and a name change takes place. An upgrade to phpBB soon follows. Hence Atari-Forum is born. The very first release of the biggest ST forum on the net to date.
With the creation of a decent emulator and hardware to match, intrest in the ST reaches a new high. Brume creates a website called 'Demos and intros running under PaCifist'. He shows the site to Pacifcist author 'Fréderic Gidouin'. He however, found the name way too long. After this conversation, the mother of all Atari ST demo websites, Pacidemo (Pacifist demos) is released. Pacidemo was one of the oldest and most respected demoscene sites on the net.
Did you know Atari Legend is fully responsive and mobile ready? You want this site to behave like an app on your phone or tablet? Simply open the site in your favorite browser and look for the 'Add to homescreen' button. In Safari on IOS, first press the 'share' icon, than this pop up appears. In Chrome on Android, you press the button at the top right, and select 'add to homescreen'. Once you have done this, the famous Atari bee fits nicely on your homescreen and you can enjoy AL with the tap of a finger.
