Starting with version 0.160 there is a timing issue that impacts the 7800 driver negatively.

Stick with the 'gold standard' in 7800 emulation, version 0.159 for the time being. ;)

Sadly your links to that version no longer work. After a bout of weeping, I decided I should just man up and ask you to send the thing in a zip to me through PM or email? :)

Thank you for the excellent work man! you're the reason I love the 7800! (along with the 2600 and 8-Bit line obviously) you're awesome! I will send a petition to make the cart, when I get some money lol!

Astro Fighter was always one of those visceral favorites of mine- meaning when you even look at the game, those familiar smells, and yes, tastes of that bygone era come flooding into my head again.

It was 1980. We had a little Mom and Pop Deli up the road from our house. I rode my bike there every chance I got. If my Mom needed ANYTHING from the store, I was on it! The reason- they had a 5 piece arcade in the back! They had this game- I could play for hours! We always needed bread at home- Mom would give me $2.00 for a loaf of bread that cost .60! So, I could get a Twix bar, (or a Whatchamacallit, before they put caramel in them, by the way!) a Nehi Grape, and enough for a game or two! So, every time I play this game, it just takes me back.

This game is STUNNING on the 7800! I looks and plays like the arcade version! And I should know-

Not only would I highly recommend this game, but I'd like to post a review over on my site, if it's ok.

Thank you for the great memories this morning!!!!!

 

Thank you for that trip down memory lane. I used to play this one for a short time in 'Kathy's Deli' on Oak Street in Copiague (Long Island).

...and you can absolutely post a review.

 

Thank you, MSd7342, and everyone else for the kind words. They mean a lot to me. :)

Thanks, Trebor. Got to play it, and it's interesting... great work by Bob as usual. :) Definitely has that 1981 second-tier shooter feel down!

Thanks, Guys! :)

 

Kensington Ct. - wow I remember where that is. I was just off 'Strongs Rd.' (the border of Copiague and Lindenhurst), A few blocks north of the tracks.
