Hello everybody,
 
can anyone help out with a Bounty Bob Strikes Back .XEX for the Atarimax 8MBit Flash Cartridge which runs on an U1MB 800XL?

Can you point to which one's you've tried already and aren't working?

Does the bbfix3 work for you? (need to be registered to download this)

Have registered there and downloaded it from your link. Bbfix3 starts from Atarimax FlashCart (8MBit), but don´t accept joystick input. On my other 800XL without U1MB it works fine.Tryed many different BBSB.XEX (TOSEC/PIGWA), but non will start, black screen.

just remember the this bbsb version is pal and it might have the old flash loader so you might need to import it into the workbook and write it back out so it's correct. If I remember how it works.

He is from Germany, so PAL is not an issue, most likely it is old flashloader vs. new(er) Atarimax flashcart...

I don't think it is loader related as its been said the game loads.

I've tried this in Altirra with U1MB enabled and seen that the player can jump but not move.

Potentially it could be some copy-protection but needs to be debugged.

 

[EDIT] Seen that the issue was to do with joystick being read from $D3F0 and found this thread which provides versions that work

OK, that one doesn't run from cartridge due to some remaining accesses to the $d5xx area.

By changing the pattern 3E 00 D5 to EA EA EA this should hopefully solve that problem.

 

I have tested by creating a MaxFlash menu with this file in and previewing it in Altirra with an Ultimate 1MB setup.

 

[Edit] Extra info - I changed the "EXE Loader Base Address" to 0x300 in MaxFlash Studio as the game's loading uses some of the 0x100 area.

This is the bbfix3 version with the same patches applied. This doesn't use page-1 during its loading and so was able to be added to the MaxFlash workbook without worrying about the loader, i.e. Steve/Classics had already catered for that:

 

EXE: Loading program 0006-0007 to 0230-0231
EXE: Loading program 000E-01B4 to 1C06-1DAC
EXE: Loading program 01B9-01BA to 06E2-06E3
EXE: Loading program 01C1-4F40 to 1E00-6B7F
EXE: Loading program 4F47-9FC6 to 6B80-BBFF
EXE: Loading program 9FCD-9FE3 to 0600-0616
EXE: Loading program 9FE8-9FE9 to 02E0-02E1
EXE: Launching at 0600
 
rather than:
 
EXE: Loading program 0006-00A0 to 2020-20BA
EXE: Loading program 00A5-00A5 to 0244-0244
EXE: Loading program 00AA-00AA to D301-D301
EXE: Loading program 00AF-00FF to 0110-0160
EXE: Loading program 0104-7D42 to 1FC1-9BFF
EXE: Loading program 7D47-7D47 to 022F-022F
EXE: Loading program 7D4C-7D4C to D400-D400
EXE: Loading program 7D51-A150 to 9C00-BFFF
EXE: Loading program A155-A156 to 02E2-02E3
EXE: Jumping to 1FC1

Hi Wrathchild,

 

thats it. Bbfix4.zip from your link works fine with 8Mbit Cart and U1MB-800XL!

Thank you very much!

 

Best regards, DQ
