Can't figure out the controls to this game using Bliss. I finally got to the actual bowling part of the game, but keep throwing gutter balls. Also, I can't seem to set the "slickness" to 10...just up to 9...

To select Slickness : 10 (hit the Clear button).

I wont give away how to keep the ball out of the gutter (at least for now, get to rolling!)

Thanks...there's a white mark that I beleive you move to aim the ball (it's all the way left and that's where my ball keeps going - into the left gutter)...but I can't figure out how to move it.

This game taught me how out of practice I was, lucked into a strike on frame 1, and then opened 4th-8th I believe...

Yeah, I looked at the manual, but, of course, it is for a real Intellivision...I'm not sure what keys on my computer and/or joystick translate into aiming that white spot (which I assume is where the bowled ball heads)...I've pressed just about everything on my keyboard and joystick and it won't budge...

 

Guess I'll have to sit this one out.

 

 

 

jbenkle, I went here http://www.replaceme...d.php?view.3107 for a pdf of the docs.

 

This is a fun game. It took a few games to get the feel of it and here was best effort so far. Have only managed 2 strikes total(not consecutive) so far. Need to get a turkey!!

Hi Joe,

If your using the Bliss emulator in the default settings, pressing and holding "z" until white marker is where you want it. So you would press one of the arrow keys to get the ball, move the bowler with either Ctrl or Space, hold z to where you want the white marker and then let go of z.

You can curve the ball too but that's the basics.

Chuck

 

If your using MESS in the default, arrow keys to get ball, Ctrl and Alt to move bowler, hold Space to move the white marker, let go of Space to release ball.

This is actually quite a realistic sim of bowling - I'm no good at the real thing either! :-D

 

My best so far. A decent finish after a terrible first 5 frames!

Slickness :10

 

Weight: 10 or 11?

 

Tanked the last frame...

 

Here's a perfect last frame, but score is lower!

Nice Jacob, you were sooooo close to causing the game to use a little used part of the code :)... get to 200+ and you'll see (wink)

Thanks Chris and guess what lol... I got the fanfare, cool.

Though it's my 4th time getting passed 200+. First time playing slickness 10,

Which I think is the toughest lane to play. I never bowled a 300, it's a tough bowling game.
