This is what my emulator spits out. Not what I would call high resolution but, best I can manage at the moment.

By the way, for anyone wanting to pick up a copy of this it is now available from Good Deal Games.

I just discovered this game existed (too much work in 2015). And Good Deal Games is out of copies. Any other options to get a copy?

I believe it's going to end up in the AA store...? Hopefully... or GDG get some more stock in eventually.

Another batch is supposed to be getting made.. but February was the last date that I knew of. Definitely something that should be in the AA Store, though.

I don't see one on Marc's site, so I'm presuming he hasn't made one yet.

There was no manual as the game rules are pretty well covered by the intro screens.

Is there anything you think a manual could expand upon?

Dauber and Inky just gave a shout-out to this game on the most recent Pie Factory Podcast in their Omega Race discussion.

Just rename the AlphaRace.bin to AlphaRace.32K.

If you have the AlphaRace.A78, convert it to the headerless binary or find the AlphaRace.bin file.

Just copied and played it earlier today.

 

Froggie.bin is awesome.

If you name it Froggie.32K it uses the TIA sound.

If you name the same file Froggie.32P (and have the Pokey chip in the cart) it plays the Pokey sound!

 

Anyone get big 144K Pokey files to work? There's no code listed. Just .S9

DK7800 Pokey NTSC with .39P runs, but without sound.

DK7800 Pokey DEV version with the Pokey code moved, and named .S9P doesn't start at all.

Same with Bentley Bear. Naming with .S9 or .S9P both will not start.

Just noticed that it's now "SOLD OUT" at Good Deal Games. Any chance of there being another run any time soon? I already have a copy, but I'm just asking for the benefit of others.

I'll second (again) interest in another run of this. I checked GoodDealGames again and nothing. That site drives me nuts, half the stuff there is listed as "Sold out".

GDG will be restocking most titles soon.
