Games already made useful on the FBP through controller hacks (and my inspiration for this thread)
* Cookie Monster Munch - from kid's controller to joystick. (By OmegaMatrix)
* Omega Race to a simple joystick controller (works awesome on the AFP). (By Thomas Jentzsch)
(THE ORIGINAL PITCH THAT STARTED THIS MESSAGE THREAD)
As a list of hundreds of games are being tested and the results listed, some games break due to special hardware tricks, but most of the non-working games are from the D-pad design and emulation problems. But this thread is not about that...yet.
This thread is making some adjustments to games to help them work better with an Atari system with only one dpad controller and no other controller options.
For those up for a challenge or just showing off, here are some games that could use a slight adjustment to make an awesome game on the Flashback Portable (FBP)
1) Wizard of Wor: reassigning controller 2 to controller 1. It was wild how they made that game making the first player use the second joystick. At the moment you have to select a two player game to get this to work so that player two gets the FBP's only controller. Re-assigning player one to joystick 1 instead of the second joystick will just make this experience better.
2) Star Raiders : Brought this one up, was sad that there was not a keyboard controller. Then I played Star Master and was inspired on how they brought up a galactic map with the select switch.
On the FBP they give you six buttons. So you have fire of course, then L and R difficulty (two buttons that I know can use used during gameplay), the TV option switch (not sure if anyone has ever used this switch during gameplay) and the select switch (which we know Star Master used.)
If someone is up for a challenge, or walking me through a challenge but I'll admit it would be a bit of walking what if we used difficulty L (on) for shield on Difficulty L (off) for shield off [since this was a two position switch. R Difficult on for Fore View, R Difficulty off for Galactic Map, and then select of the TV select switch for hyperspace? (The sixth button is the pause button which would probably not help us in this case being more hardware/emulator effect than a in game effect.)
