In Topic: Is The 2600 Sky Skipper Part Of The Mandela Effect?

Thu Jun 21, 2018 8:59 AM

Sky Skipper was pre-Popeye & Donkey Kong so after the failure of Radarscope Nintendo probably got cold feet releasing it in the USA. Much like Radarscope cabinets became Donkey Kong's, Sky Skipper cabinets that could have made it to the USA became Popeye's. Parker Bros, to me, was like Coleco, licensing quirky arcade titles that Atari and possibly Coleco to an extent, didn't want or didn't think would be big sellers. It sounds weird about Coleco with them at the start snagging licenses like Lady Bug, Looping ( a personal favorite) and Space Fury but hey, either way we got them. Parker Bros. had a very successful run of great games over multiple systems. It's kinda sad they don't get much credit these days.

This time the wallpaper is centered with a big white border around it. The buttons are dark red. Text is orange.

Looks cool but the wallpaper doesn't extend across the entire screen for me.

I'm interested in what version of Stella it is running and the features of that version.


This is why I think Super Cobra Arcade won't work because it was a recently released version that was needed to play it. 

In Topic: Montezuma's Revenge - no black screen "hack"?

You need to find the torch in order to illuminate the 'black screens'. You are talking where you only see your character, the enemies & the lasers, yes?
