8bit Baby Pac

Sun Oct 21, 2018 1:03 PM

Theres an interesting thread in the 7800 section on Baby Pac Man here:



Not sure if the old 8bit could do something similar?  Would be a good edition to the catalog and not sure if the work on the 7800 could provide a good jump start to the 8bit.


Just dreaming today.............

Ultima 2.5

Sat Jul 21, 2018 12:16 PM

After figuring out the maps in U3 I decided to look at U2.  The more I found out the more it seems we got ripped with U3 ;) - U2 had alot more land mass vs 3 but I digress.


U2 map editing provided some bonuses that U3 didnt - Villages, Towns and Castles could be placed anywhere in U2 - they are map based and not position based.  A few of the other items are placeable as well.


Anyhow - I threw together a modified Ultima 2 character disk with a few familiar maps - see if you can find them ;)


The player is pretty stacked with everything so exploring is the name of the game.

Ultima II NPC mystery

Fri Jul 20, 2018 2:22 PM

Not much of a mystery but something I found in dissecting Ultima 2 - there is a character tile that I dont believe is used except in the Museum.  I believe this tile was used in U3 but not in U2.


I highlighted in yellow the tile in question.

U3 land tile problem

Mon Jun 25, 2018 10:02 AM

Im not sure how this started but my U3 character disk has developed a problem with some of the land tiles.  Ive attached 2 pictures to show the issue.  Ive got water where there should be land around LBs castle and the town.  Anyone know of a way to fix the tiles through disk editing?


Part of the reason I have this problem is it seems whenever the whirlpool downs an empty ship it thinks its occupied and drops a ship around the castle creating a water space.  Not sure how to fix that, but if I could chang ethe land that would help.


Sorry for all the chests, those are all 'grass' tiles.
