Going through some Syquest backups from Atari developer systems (hey, gotta keep busy sitting on the couch healing from my heart op) so while going through I found folder with Shanghai and some other rom's and among them was a 256k file size rom named Simpsons.rom

Now I know a music demo was released a long while back, I haven't tested this image, so this may be the same thing or it may be an actual game, I'll leave it to you lynx lovers to test it out and post info about the file, hope its a new game everyone can enjoy...

First off, glad your recovery is going well :)

Thanks for posting. I'm not too familiar with the Lynx or the other Simpsons music demo, but I thought I may as well post these screenshots. It seems to be a vocal sample player. I had to add a 64 byte header to run it in Handy, so I just copied and pasted one from another 256K game. Worked great.

Sorry it wasn't more... well, I'm sitting on a stack of Amiga format floppies and I need to get my old Amiga 2000 running again this spring so I can read all these disks in and transfer the over to my PC, hopefully there might be a few diamonds hiding in them for everyone to enjoy.

Here they are in lnx-format ready to be run on Handy or mednafen

I always thought this Simpsons sound demo was fun.
I distributed a handful of homemade copies a while
back. Please let me know if anyone else wants one.

Hope you find more treasure on the Amiga, Curt.

Still want a price including delivery ;) Just tried it out in Handy, it's amazing how good the samples are. This is something I wanted to look at code wise.

Nice looking cart, I may be interested in a copy to the U.K. if price is resonable.

I cannot get it running on the Pandora-Mednafen but it works very well on the Pandora-Handy :)
Sounds great and clear. Homer should have been a Klax announcer lol
