Use this version of DPCplus.arm in your include folder so it will not crash the Harmony Encore loading:

  While I was in there, I also fixed a bug where the red wizard would become immortal on Level 1.

 

Enjoy!

Ugh , and I had noticed that once and yet I must of forgotten to try it again ! Maybe Al could get the newest .bin and release it on cart  :grin:   On one of the threads he mentioned that it would be on cart this year .

Thanks, I guess I've been out of it too long...  The roms in post #1 and #125 have been updated.

Yes, I'm surprised that one slipped through your extensive testing.  The bug was a leftover from the earlier versions where it only took one shot to kill the red wizard in Level 1.

This looks great, but in Stella at least, it has the screen bouncing issue that I've seen before with some other DPC+ demos.  Setting the cartridge type t DPC+ manually in Stella didn't help, either.  Does this not happen on an actual Atari?

 

 

I added that jitter support to Stella as documented in this blog entry - Overscan Jitter 2, DPC+ Jitter, which was done due to this topic Game test on Harmony Cart(pertinent info in replies 5 and 11). 

 

There have been a number of revisions to DPC+ over the years, and based on EMR II the earlier version must not have had this issue - though based on how the fractional data fetchers work, I don't know why not.  There's no version info in the DPC+ driver, so no easy way for Stella to behave differently for different versions of DPC+.

So it turns out that adding one bit that I thought was unused caused the bat to disappear and the dragon to appear too early.  The rom has once again been updated in the first post...

Please do.  Al's still trying to find someone to do the art for the cart, box, and manual.

I think there was supposed to be a label contest for it . And then I would guess the manual needs to be finished . This is all speculation , but I think this game is long overdue  :grin:
