phew still it makes me nervous "should i - should i haven't"
they are named to me "super soccer" (proper name)
simply "soccer" distributed by intellivision.us as soccer2 (the one with the advertises)
at least that's how i list, name and handle them.
some changes i made this february, but i'm still n ot sure if it's good to make them public.
intentionally, and i have this ready made at home, i woul liked to post only a clean advice how to hack them because this is (almost) legal.
It's a violation of applicable laws if i make the hacked binaries public.
but ok let's say in the frame of this closed circle it shouldn't be a problem, i don't think the FBI will visit me in ulisbach (if they know at all where ulisbach is).
not even a junction, a couple of buildings near to a junction (is that to find on google maps? yes)
since i forgot this piece of work (the hack table) at home i will post my new hacks but will upload it to my dropbox to envolve no one else as me.
and i don't fear a shit, you can't strip a naked man, and in any prison i will have a TV which i can't afford free as i am.
I've made some minor changes to the sport game hacks.
mainly i altered the title screen name string to differ them proper from the original and to give a idea what it is.
instead to link them here i will link them now and in future in the thread for "hacks" here on atariage.
further i changed the soccer games from 2x15min to 22+23min which equals exactly to "all of the action in half of the time" (no fear i've updated the boxart as well).
also i changed "Hoop!" erm i mean "Hoopla Hoop" argh sorry "Slam Dunk" to 4x6min which is even closer to half as 4x8min, probably it's to short, tell me what you think about,
i'm no basketball player, or i have to start to be one.
NBA Basketball has even been shortened to this duration.
a few words to the different
Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer
"Soccer2" (i would really name it just Soccer or Soccer for one and two players, or maybe Super NASL Soccer which is i guess the proper Name of the unreleased and only for demonstration purposes made "Soccer2".
Soccer 2 is ment for 1 and 2 players, my favorite version because of the advertises, that's unique amongst the Intellivision games.
"Super Soccer" this game seems also to be a unreleased prototype, it has a "horrible" bug (well a bug at least).
The game is ment to be enhanced by the ECS, it would be possible to be played for 4 players simultaneousely.
It can be run without the ECS attached, but it crashes if you start it without ECS when you use the right controller to start it, using the left controller is fine.
"World Cup Soccer" respectively "World Cup Football" is the finally released version and is bugfree, it also can be played for up to 4 with the ECS controller pair.
If i hear now the word Soccer you will be..... in the nose i got a headake from all these soccer.
no i like the game much, even if i score like hell, 20 : 0 isn't uncommon and here ends the fun.
what i would like is a faster soccer, not faster clock speed, a faster AI.
you can screw up the ratio (i recommend 1.5 times, faster won't do it good), but still the AI is fast the same as you and has no chance if you "play with yourself"
means lay a straight high shot in front of you and run backwards out of the screen so you can catch your own pass when you enter the screen from front, do this two or three times and score over the short corner (but preferably from the bottom side where you have a lot more open space), or shoot a high shot before you can see the goal centered to the goal (match the distance though your high shot lands exactly behind or in front of the dull goalie), the goalie is chanceless in both situations.
Penalty shootout, if it's your turn to shoot, the duration you press the disc equals to the hardness the ball will be kicked, the direction is of course the direction.
shoot in the low corner of the goal by pressing the disc not to long else your shot will end up easy to high (either left or right, ENE for right WNW for left corner), the goalie will be chanceless.
Penalty shootout your'e the keeper - argh help i'm a shitty goalie, try it, it's hard to hold any pill, usually my goalie jumps a second after the ball went in the goal, he's somewhat a lame goalie. looks very funny if a goalie jumps for joy (instead for the ball).
Have a Coke in the pause.
How many games will have a unlicensed Coca-Cola advert?
Not even i put that name in Pioneer, i have "Cool-Cola" but not Coca-Cola.
But i love it, it adds this special bit of realism to soccer2.
Unfortunately the players enter the field from top but will leave it downwards like in NASL Soccer.
No "attract mode" in the title screen of Soccer2.
Unlike NASL Soccer all three later Soccer games play overtime not until the first player scored, the whole overtime has to be played no matter who scored how many goals, if it's still a tie a penalty shootout starts.
I would say NASL soccer has liga rules, "Super Soccer(s)" has cup rules.
To start the overtime play after a tie you have to press keypad "3" for all Soccer games.
"Super Soccer(s)" allow you to ask for a pass if you haven't the ball (press lower left action button for this), the teammate who has the ball will pass it to you.
