The game will not work on real NTSC hardware because the signature is invalid.

Can anyone please fix the header to the correct one on the *.a78 file as well?
It won't run under MESS due to an incorrect header/signature.

I took the signed BIN from post number 5 and utilizing the 7800dev tools zip found on Dan Boris' 7800 page, I created the *.78 file.*

I set 2 byte cartridge type hexdecimal to 0000, and it works in MESS beautifully. However, I would prefer a confirmation that is the correct cartridge type for this hack, but could not find a list anywhere of possible options besides the "0000".


*Granted I'm using Win 7 64-bit and the tools would not run under there, so I utilized DOSBox to do the building work :grin:

At least you got it working. This is what I think it should be. Let me know if this works for you as well.

This one works perfect under MESS as well - Just tested with 0.145u7.

Thank you!

Has anyone got this to run on a real cart? I'd love to order this in cart form!

BTW: Great job on the hack!

Yes it works. I hacked up a Jinks board and got it working on a real 7800.

I just played this on my CC2 and the high score cart entries are mixed with my Scramble entries. I also get some weird stuff in the bottom blue area at the beginning of the game:

Otherwise it seems pretty good.

Already posted in the main 7800 forum, but worth repeating here:

"Arrived extremely well packaged and plays great!"
"Easy to order, shipped fast, and arrived super protected in plenty of packaging materials."
