Cosmic Avenger?

Thu Mar 12, 2015 7:54 PM

I hear Ferg over at the 2600 Game by Game podcast is going to tackle Cosmic Avenger for the 2600 soon.  Was a prototype found?  I hadn't heard news of this, and a quick search of Atari Age doesn't turn up info that one was released.


Firefox Laserdisc game secret bases?

Sat Jan 31, 2015 10:53 PM

Finally got the CHD file for the classic Atari laserdisc game Firefox.

Something I don't remember from the game back in the early days is that the game tells you that by flying at ground level you can uncover "secret bases"  I did some googling, and cannot find info on these.  Anyone have any ideas on these and how to get them?


List of games that don't work on the ATGames Genesis Ultimate portable

Wed Jan 28, 2015 7:57 AM

I did some googlin' (Every day I'm Googling,) and I cannot find a list of games that do not work on the ATGames Genesis Ultimate Portable, so let's start one here.

We'll use this first post to create the list.  

When listing a rom that doesn't work, give the name and date of the rom.  We can compare notes, and possibly discover a working rom.  This thread is not for uploading roms or where to find them,but with a proper date and name, working roms should be easy to google.

So far the ones I've encountered that don't work...


EDIT: Ditched the file name.  Including the problem observed. Added a few games

Codes:

SMT = Sega Multi Tap
EAMT = EA Multi - Tap
BB - Battery Backup

 

Super Bubble Bobble - buzzing sound,won't start
Lotus Turbo Challenge - Converted to .bin. Plays but with buzzing noise and some graphical glitching.

Ms.Pac-Man - black screen           
Buck Rogers - error code 000FE006 03

Frogger - red screen

 

Gauntlet Arcade - Loads,won't start - SMT 

Gauntlet 4 - loads, will not start   - EAMT

Austrailian Rugby Leauge - Won't start -  EAMT 

Coach K College Basketball - Loads, start works, gives error SEGA Library Internal Error drawrect clip error (0,0,; M16 window=( - EAMT

ATP Tour - Starts, able to set options, crashes after game starts - SMT - BB

 

 

 


Where to purchase 5200 to 8 Bit ports

Fri Jan 23, 2015 10:23 AM

I must not be using the search feature correctly, but that's another issue.

Anyway, I know that several 5200 titles have been converted to 8-bit like Qix, and I was wondering is there anyplace to purchase these?  I thought the Atariage store would have these, but I'm not seeing them.


One change to ET that would have benefited the game's reputation

Wed Jan 7, 2015 12:27 PM

I was thinking about ET and it's status as "worst game ever" (it's not,) and something occurred to me.

There are no pits in the movie. There is a scene where ET is found in a ditch, but no pits. Falling into the pits is probably the biggest complaint about the game.  My idea (and I'd hack this if I could,) is to get rid of the pits and replace them with trees that the parts are hidden behind.  Now the game is more faithful to the movie, and the most frustrating element of the game has been corrected. Now you'd have to adjust other gameplay components to make the challenge at about the same level (starting energy I think) and you've got a better,more playable game.

Thoughts?
