Asteroids Deluxe in MESS

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to get the Asteroids Deluxe ROM (downloaded from this site) to work in the MESS emulator but it doesn't recognise it. Presumably it is because it is a BIN file rather than an A78 file. Is there a way to play this game in MESS at all? Thanks in advance!

I tried that. Mess picks it up as it thinks it's an a78 file but it won't load it. The screen just goes black. Thanks for the suggestion though. :)

If all else fails, play the original arcade version on MAME.

Is there no difference between this and the arcade game?

Are you trying to play the Atari 7800 version (ie the .a78 file)??

 

Heck yes its different than the arcade version (though it's the closest home port ever done IMHO).

Yeah, it's the 7800 version. I dl'd it from this site presuming it to be an a78 file but it's actually a BIN. I tried renaming it but it didn't work...
