I've got almost the entire Mines of Moria rogue-like game ported to the Atari, using VBXE and an Atarimax Flash 8Mbit cartridge. The only gameplay thing left to port is the "look" command. I will be adding joystick control, and a few other cosmetic things, and I will look into prerendering some levels and depacking from cartridge, as the random level generation is still around 30 seconds per level.
I would appreciate any testing and bug reports though! Especially when it comes to the various spells, prayers, wands, staffs and potions and monsters. '?' brings up the help screen. CTRL-W enters wizard mode, which lets you cheat. CTRL-directions work in Altirra too, so you can use your direction keys (for up, down, right and left anyway.)
A good page for Moria information:
The cart image is an Atarimax 8Mbit old style banking (cart 42 in Altirra). You need VBXE. The current colors are set for PAL.
A couple of questions:
What about colors of objects? I have some objects colored white and some blue. I couldn't decide whether to color all objects blue or white... monsters are currently red, which I think works fine.
In some of the inventory screens there is a solid line below the inventory listing and in some there isn't. Which looks better?
I restored some of the things I had initially changed (the history of messages are at 20 now), but monster recall/memories are currently not implemented. They will take a lot of memory and further cartridge banking, which may slow the game a bit. Are they important to the game play or not? (old moria players this question is for you.)
Any questions or comments welcome.
