One of my favorite games on the 2600 is Stay frosty 2 what an excellent game! However for some reason it just stopped working. I tried redownloading the bin file but it no longer loads just goes to the blue screen. I did have to flash the bios on my harmony cart recently think that may be the cause and what is the fix ?

It's possible you downgraded the BIOS to an old version that doesn't support custom bank switching schemes like DPC+ used in Stay Frosty 2.

To check, click fire on the line with [.]

Your BIOS version will be listed on the first line:

Mine is 1.03 thanks :) Maybe that is the problem.

That would be it. From Latest Harmony Cart software

BIOS: Version 1.05, uploaded May 23, 2010

  • Support for Sega Genesis controllers in the menu (hold down button B during power on)
  • 3F bankswitching now works with files up to 32k (e.g Andrew Davie's dancing baby demo)
  • Support for new bankswitching (such as DPC+) without requiring future BIOS updates
  • Certain F6 games that didn't work on version 1.04e should work now

Since I got the notification on this subject earlier today I have had this song in my head.

 

Stay Frosty
