#3725346 Mecha-8 for Sega Master System now in my store

Posted by nanochess on Thu Mar 23, 2017 1:30 PM

Hi everyone.


At last published the ROM for a long delayed Mecha-8 version for Sega Master System, I forgot I was waiting for some guys to manufacture a PCB mapper but this never materialized.


It's available at my web store http://nanochess.org/store.html


You can play it using the Fusion emulator or in real hardware using a Flashcart with support for 128KB mapper.

#3697667 The Making of E.T. (Retro Gamer Magazine)

Posted by nanochess on Thu Feb 16, 2017 11:37 AM

I find interesting that everytime Warshaw talks about E.T. development, the history changes slightly.

Cool article nonetheless :)

#3696508 Kinda a weird issue

Posted by nanochess on Tue Feb 14, 2017 9:56 PM

I should show more of it...



The video run at 30 fps on youtube, so TWINSHOT and STARRAIN spells have their virtual sprite drop.  Still very early. 


I'll probably release the ROM when completed like I did for the Colecovision version. 


GRAM information if someone's curious and have asked before:


0-31(first 13 is pass through) for the background

32-33 redefining Starmi sprite

34-35 weapon

36-43 for the star and 7 orbs graphic. Redefiniting orb will buy back 5 cards, for now, I will leave it.

44-47 Magic Icon/animation frame

48-55 8 cards for enemy 1

56-63 8 cards for enemy 2 (still need to figure the logic to tell it to look here if loaded)


I'm bad for playing RPG, but I would play this one when finished :) nice work! :thumbsup:

#3695905 Team Pixelboy News Bulletin - January 1st 2017

Posted by nanochess on Tue Feb 14, 2017 9:58 AM

the scrolling effect is really impressive for the VDP.   Does the MSX version is as smooth as this one? or did you improve it?    I had played the MSX version , i did not remember to have been so impressed by the scrolling .

It comes that way from MSX, ARTRAG did a really impressive job there. Don't forget to check the multicolor sprites.

At last I've found time to port Uridium :)

Thanks to ARTRAG for providing the MSX source code, it makes faster and easier to port the game.

#3695520 Why were emulators made in the first place?

Posted by nanochess on Mon Feb 13, 2017 8:21 PM

At some point in the middle 1990s the MSX was considered obsolete, everyone start trashing machines and the emulators were the way to play the disappearing platform.

But still the MSX is alive much like Atari, Colecovision, Intellivision, etc. And the emulators brought new people to the system which then started buying again the machines to experience the real thing.

Myself I wrote an emulator to play the things I thought never was going to have, but now have them!

#3694852 Just wanted to share my Intellivision collection

What about a recompilation before execution? :) or more commonly named JIT (Just In Time)
