  1. Has there been any homebrew/classic adaptations of the 15 Puzzle for the 2600? I know there's been a homebrew called M*N Puzzle for the 8-bit computers.
  2. Man, the degree of faithfulness is simply astounding. I wasn't actually expecting the blue sky and flashing shield for the Space Invaders stage and you have translated it all perfectly! I wasn't sure if shooting the laser ship wouldn't cause the rest of the squadron to break from formation. That's what I remember reading but they don't do that here. I also could have sworn I hit that Space Invaders stage GORF thing and the shot just disappeared but maybe I just misjudged it... Interesting seeing the Galaxian Stage. I really liked the new Galaxian sound effects of the GORF game and I'm really glad that was replicated here. I only gave it a few preliminary tries and haven't gotten to the Space Warp and Flagship stages yet.
  3. Do I need another Stella update? I tried running the rom and all I get is a black screen. I've already updated Stella to get compatibility with Draconian when I had the same problem with that game.

  5. Awesome! This has the varied levels of the arcade version, right? Always was a bit bothered that the Atari version only flip-flops between 2 room layouts.
  6. Made an Atari chiptune:

      That is pretty sick, I like it. By the way, I think you should consider signing up to BandLab. It allows unlimited uploads when compared to a normal SoundCloud account.

      Thanks. I use Bandlab now. Really good tools for what I like to make.

  7. Oh I found the details of the game variations detailed in the manual provided on the bjars site, just not in the manual in this thread. Though there is some green circle with a black hole in it power up that I got that I still don't know what is and can't find a mention of it in the manuals.
  8. Oh man, I've been on a lookout for Indiana Jones games and this looks like it would deliver! I had a run through it for the first time. The inclusion of minecarts, traps, treasures, fog of war/flashlight, and boulders are just what I've been looking for! Great job on the stylish manual too. I realize this is unlikely to get further updates, but the thing that bothers me about these kinds of games is that once you know where everything is, you always do, so I would have liked seeing some sort of randomization. I haven't really seen the minecart yet but I like the shaking rooms with falling rocks, and the boulder, unlike most boulder chases I've seen in games, is actually a challenge here. Great job on this game, if you're still reading this. Edit: I don't see any instructions regarding the select switch but I'm guessing the 3 games are like in Adventure, with game 2 being more difficult and 3 being randomized? If so then that takes care of the randomization aspect, so long as they won't be in impossible to reach locations like in Adventure where the keys are inside the castles. Great graphic on the explorer too. The differently-coloured rooms are a nice way to keep things fresh and memorable.
  9. Anyone knows how to fix the mojibake problem in Lady Sword? I tried applying the translation patch off of romhacking and the result is all mojibake. I tried it twice and it's got the same results, and the same after I tried renaming the .pce file.
  10. anyone knows how to fix the mojibake problem in Lady Sword for the PC Engine? I tried applying the translation patch off of romhacking and the result is all mojibake. I tried it twice and it's got the same results. Again when I tried renaming the source file.

  11. also i find pinball to be like Atari 2600 games in the sense that they both require imagination.

  12. Are all the roms removed from the Atari pages or something

      I get a 404 when I try to look at the 2600 ROMs page...

      I know atarimania exists but I meant Atariage. Did they finally come at this website for the ROMs is what I meant

  13. My point wasn't that you can kill multiple GRUNTs but rather that they clutter up into a single space and I was meaning to ask if the cluttering was intentional, although I don't know if this was the case in the arcade version. Certainly in the 7800 version I've seen them get very close to each other but most the time they were still distinct.
  14. apparently my atari controller drawing is good enough it's been reposted to png sites and used as advertisement. the 2600daptor guy used it in his ad without my knowledge. But since I wanted one anyway I just bought it.

      The electronics are based on the NES controller, though not exactly (an NES controller won't work on an FB1).

      I didn't know the adaptor works for NES controllers.

      The D9 version does as part of Famiclone support.  For NES, will also need a NES to DB9 cable/adapter.
