Maybe PM Thomas Jentzsch or one of the other programmers? I tried the .dpc and I got the same issue. I don't think it's anything on my end, especially since orb also jitters a bit on real hardware.

I'm guessing this has nothing to do with whether it's on a Harmony cart, Cuttle cart or burned ROM.  I bet a real 2600 is the issue.  FYI, my Harmony Encore is only a few months old.

 

Have you tried it on the Cuttle cartridge yet?

Thanks much for trying this out guys.

I have the code out now and I'm making changes so expect a new version soon. I hope to fix this issue without having to rip stuff out. I have a problem with posting a new game and then going right into making another one. Guess I should not do that.

Just for info. The cuttleCart does not emulate the DPC+. Only Harmony, Harmony Encore, or a game made for you on a Melody board will run DPC+ code.

Thanks Turbo, this I did not know. I figured as it ran all the 2600 and 7800 games it would handle DPC+, but it might not have been around when the cart was made. Good info.

I have posted Doom Patrol 0.6

Work has been done on it to reduce the jitter when running on a Harmony cart. I don't think it's perfect yet. I can't test it.

Just came across this and it looks great!  Sadly, I can't try the game out on my Harmony cart as my telly blew up on me a few weeks ago and my LCD hates the 2600... :(

 

Still, going to try it out on Stella as soon as I can. :)

Doom Patrol 0.7 released. This is optimized and harmony cart ready.

 

Some minor updates also.

 

Special thanks to iesposta for helping to optimize this one! He showed me some great stuff! 

 

This ends my getting into scan line compliance and just in time as the new Stella has been released.
Now, I can finally get on with making some new stuff :)

Thanks Papa! 

 

As for the cart question, I have never followed up on the process to do that, so I'm not sure. I guess it would be nice to have a cart of it though if enough people wanted one. I don't have any idea on how to measure that either.

Send Albert a private message, though wait until November as he's currently very busy preparing for PRGE and will need some time to recoup after he gets back.  

 

Are you set up to test on real hardware yet?  If not, I highly recommend doing that before looking into releasing your games on cartridge.
