  1. I've just got this latest version up running - awesome. Because I am awkward I tried under Big Sur, had to jump thru a few hoops, but eventually got it to boot 🙂 sTeVE
  2. My shop from late 80's to early 90's... sTeVE
  3. I saw Winter Games running on an XEGS at Atari UK in Slough, alongside UFO... Sadly I have no evidence of my experience (it was a way before camera phones) - and to be honest I was there to sign a contract for some software I was developing, little would I know the games I saw would never be released. sTeVE
  4. Very nice! Not having played/seen this game before is the burst scrolling part of the original product? sTeVE
  5. That's very sad to hear, a real loss to the community... I really enjoyed Business Is Fun. sTeVE
  6. I guess I am over dramatic 🙂 The original Genesis game is was so smooth and animation rich that every time play a lesser version I am always reminded what is missing. So for me the low frame rate, small enemies and visually indistinguishable scenery all makes it so meh on the GB... sTeVE
  7. "PC original" - nope Genesis/Medgadrive original 🙂 Have you played the gameboy version OMG it's horrific, very little of the magic of EWJ left in that! sTeVE
  8. Might as well start with a system closer to ours for comparison - look how crappy the Master System conversion was - and that machine is way more powerful (10Mhz custom Sega VDP) than an A8. It can put 64 hardware sprites on screen and addresses unto 4MB of cart space! sTeVE
  9. I will go and have a look - being UK based I may have PAL memories 🙂 sTeVE
  10. But they are all in mode 8 and so artifacted, not mode E 4 color (Ralf Bertenburg hack)... I wonder if that red is purple on XL/XE? sTeVE
  11. I beg to differ - the Broderbund original is 100% colors by artifacting in the play area - it just has a black backdrop. There is a HACK that uses Antic E so you get a 160 horizontal resolution and 4 non artifacted colors on screen... sTeVE
  12. So that's solved it - if I select Open GL or DX11 it works perfectly - thanks for the help... However if I have DX9 checked alone or combined with any other options - my system soft locks every time with 60HZ or NTSC video settings! sTeVE
  13. Thanks for the suggestions phaeron - I will try the various options to see what happens! sTeVE
  14. Thanks for the suggestion... I tried running Altirra from windows w/o my FE or CL options - booted to an NTSC 800 - loaded an xex (DK) - selected File/Exit and my system soft locked 😞 Now it does NOT lock up if I am in window mode when I exit, only exit from Full Screen causes the lock up. I get the same behaviour if I try 5200 games (which when loaded force NTSC) - File/Exit - locked up PC 😞 If I select Config System from the menu bar sometimes the FS switches to a window the the dialogue appears and sometimes the screen turns grey and the system is soft locked again. At this stage I understand it is my system, but where to start to look to fix it, I have no diagnostic information from the lock ups, I don't know where to look. I am running Windows 10 and I am on the insider program for updates... sTeVE
