frogger hack - remove fire button press?

Recommended Posts

Yes, but the problem is that whoever did the hack didn't make it so you have to tap repeatedly in a direction to move that way.

The result is that holding a direction makes the Frog run off in that direction. Normally into a car truck or the water. :)

Here you go. I'd love to see it fixed so it controls like it should. (IE. A8, CV, VCS...)

 

 

this works great besides 1 issue. When you put the frog in the hole at the end, a new frog appears and immediate gets hit by the car

That is because of what I said above. The new frog starts so fast you are still holding up after putting the previous frog in his home.

Like I said, needs to be changed to move only a single space when a direction is placed.

As it is now the frog just keeps going in that direction until it hits something or you release the direction.

ok i see what you mean, it auto jumps if joystick is held in that direction. This is ok as I can time it for all the other jumps. If the frog start position was moved back one spot, behind the time line, then the first jump that it does would be only to that line vs into the road. Hopefully someone can look at it and adjust.

 

Is there a Atari 5200 emulator for PC or mac with single step. I might be able to find the right place in the code.

 

Another fix might be to add rapid fire to the controller, the player would hold down this button. Then the original rom / cart can be used.

I think rapid fire would still make the frog go just like the hack.... In the original 5200 version you can hold a direction and tapping the button would make him jump.

So rapid would just make him keep going...

 

Also in the original 5200 versions I think you can use the keypad to move the frog. Those buttons are too clumsy for fast gaming though.

Any word on an updated "no Button" rom? Love this game but hate it on the 5200. The no button hack would be perfect if it didn't jump you into the street...

I made a rapid fire controller and now the standard rom/cart works fine

 

just hold down rapid fire and release right after the last jump

Wouldn't an xe/xl conversion do the trick? As a kid I played frogger on an 800 xl with no problems and no button pushing, played just like the arcade version.

You can also use the keypad. The 4 and 6 are your left and right, the 2 and 8 are up and down.

 

do other games on the 5200 use keypad for primary movement?
