Status: Deprecated (don't expect bug fixes or other updates)

Notice: atari-py is fully deprecated and no future updates, bug fixes or releases will be made. Please use the official Arcade Learning Environment Python package (ale-py) instead; it is fully backwards compatible with all atari-py code.

Build Status

A packaged and slightly-modified version of https://github.com/bbitmaster/ale_python_interface.

Supported Systems

atari-py supports Linux and Mac OS X with Python 3.5, 3.6, and 3.7. Binaries for those platforms are published to PyPI

We also have binaries for Windows, but compiling from source on Windows or using the binaries is not officially supported.

Installation

To install via pip, run:

pip install atari-py That should install a correct binary verison for your OS. If that does not work (or if you would like get the latest-latest version, or you just want to tinker with the code yourself) see next paragraph.

ROMs

In order to import ROMS, you need to download Roms.rar from the Atari 2600 VCS ROM Collection and extract the .rar file. Once you've done that, run:

python -m atari_py.import_roms <path to folder>

This should print out the names of ROMs as it imports them. The ROMs will be copied to your atari_py installation directory.

Installation from source

  • make sure you have git, cmake, zlib1g, and, on Linux, zlib1g-dev system packages installed
  • clone the repo
  • run pip install -e .

Included ROMs

The following non-commercial ROMs are included with atari-py for testing purposes:

  • Tetris26 by Colin Hughes
