Well, I wish they'd fix it...maybe more people should email them...I will...

Thanks on the score. I may just go back to playing on the emulator again. I've been trying to play the real CV, but my hand is so sore from gripping the controller the last few days I've only been putting up scores of 70,000-80,000. I think I'm going to tear the frikin' nob off the controller one of these times. Yurkie may have to refurbish my refurbished joysticks...


Joe,
Yes, I've tried it in MESS with the same result. There is no gun. I actually reported this to the MESS team a long time ago and I think that it has to do with an error in the driver for Colecovision. It should be easily fixable but it hasn't been fixed yet. I've tried to reconfigure the keys but to no avail. I think this is the only game that does not work correctly in MESS for Colecovision. At least it's the only one that I've come across. It's too bad as I like MESS and use it a lot.
I like the ADAM emulation in MESS as well but they screwed up the ADAM emulation after version 141. I use version 141 and the ADAM emulation works quite well but alas Super Cobra does not work as it has garbled graphics on startup. I like the ADAM emulation because you can often use the mouse as the Roller Controller, etc.
Great score on Super Cobra, BTW.
Chuck

okay, I got 18ks "something"... once again I hit the fire button... or something went wrong here,

I will take 18,000 exactly for a score if that's acceptable.

Super Cobra - 115,990

Could have gone a little longer, but I tried snapping a picture between levels to avoid accidently resetting the game if I died and wound up dying any way - shot out of the sky by the gun on top of the building.

I have been informed that the problem with the 2nd fire button in MESS for ColecoVision has been fixed. If you compile your own program, it's available as of revision number 13551...otherwise you will have to wait for the v.144u3 to be released.

A reminder to everyone playing this game -- scroll back to message #16 and grab the rom. The 32k dump works correctly on all the emulators except VColeco (Virtual ColecoVision).

Ugh! I just realized I could hold the button down... MUCH EASIER :)
Actually played to 27,000 before losing my FIRST life. I tried to not care
what I hit and didn't and concentrated on the terrain as a whole... that helps too.

32,870

Onto the next game...

Technically I'm employed...but there isn't any work. The company I work for grades student tests. We used to be in a building with 400 computer stations...two years ago they moved to a new office with 25...they lost a lot of contracts...I think I probably worked three months last year. Don't know if they'll call us back this season or not...it would be February if they do...

Fortunately my wife makes a lot of money...and I have my own side business (a newspaper) which brings in a little.
