The emulator was tweaked to make certain games work that didn't work before, like Galaxian, which is now included. Whether that changed how it worked for the other games remains to be tested (I have not had a chance myself). It's likely that previous hacks will still work.

So Berzerk in the vid was the hacked one I did?

 

I used the link for the Flashback Portable rom set, so probably.  Again thank you for making this happen!

Hey all, just wanted to say congrats on getting this thread on the latest review of the AFP 2017.

 

I think the community and all the games that have been discovered or hacked to work is the greatest feature of the AFP.  Well, correction, the SD card slot was a greatest thing, and the community flew with it.  :D

 

Good stuff.  Just saying hi!

Hi all, on the compatibility subject for the existing 2600 portable can someone confirm Pressure Cooker looks right? I just did a video comparing the 2600 handheld versus the old Genesis handheld (just for kicks, I know it's a bit like comparing apples to oranges) and when I ran Pressure Cooker the buns on the assembly line on the left side of the screen were all rainbow pattern-ish.

 

Forward to the 14:23 mark of my video below to see what I mean. This is from the zipped archive of Flashback Portable games at the beginning of this thread.

I don't remember what the issue was exactly, but Pressure Cooker wasn't playable for me and sadly had to be deleted. Graphical corruption that hindered the game too much was all that I remember.

Yes, my AFP has the rainbow effect on the left side of the screen too.

Rewrites to COLUPF happen too soon for the portable to deal with (cycle 39 IIRC).

Yup that's the one. I know it's not 100 % like original Pitfall but I was mainly using it to compare the d-pads and action button.

I always thought that was a neat extra. I think it was re-created rather than emulated. There was a time that "Virtual VCS" for Jaguar seemed like such a cool idea.

Nice video!

Pressure Cooker display fix posted to the controller hack thread.  Needs a bit more work, but it's playable.
