Intellivision sportgames "all of the action in half of the time"

Recommended Posts

After this and that thought i thought ok let's risk it again.

 

Intellivision sportgames hack

 

"ALL OF THE ACTION IN HALF OF THE TIME"

 

The zipped folder will contain following to half of the playing time shortened sport games:

- NBA Basketball (shortened overtime as well)

- NASL Soccer (shortened overtime by 30 seconds ;) )

- NFL Football

- NHL Hockey

- Soccer2 (a predecessor to super soccer, resp. world cup soccer which is to play only for one or two players)

- Super Soccer (can be played from 1 up to 4 players if ECS and ECS controller set present,

attention! this game crashes if the ECS is disabled and if you start it using the right controller, using left is fine, this isn't caused by my hack)

 

- World Cup Football (resp. World Cup Soccer, the cartridge image shows the title "World Cup Football", i've included both, one version where i only hacked the title string to "World Cup Soccer" and the 2x22min version. Similar to Super Soccer it supports the ECS controllers and up to 4 could play, this once released game hasn't the bug of "Super Soccer" it can be started without ECS present from both controllers.

 

All three "Soccer2", "Super Soccer", "World Cup Soccer" have a shortened overtime of 7min (instead of 15min) if it's still a tie after two overtimes a penalty shoot out starts. Overtime has to be engaged for all soccer games by pressing of "3" after a tie.

NASL soccer plays overtime until the tie is broken. soccer2, super soccer and world cup soccer play the whole 2 overtimes no matter who scored how many goals.

attention! using "miniecs" (the quasi ecs provided by joe zbiciak) won't work since it only includes the aditional three PSG channels for sound enhancement, super soccer and world cup soccer can't be run this way (for non ECS games it simply doesn't exists).

 

Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer Soccer ;)

 

- Hoop! erm Hoopla Hoop no "Slam Dunk: Super Pro Basketball" (after the hack jzIntv showed "Hoop!" in the title bar, and it's briefly displayed as well if you reset the game). Apart from the shortened time it will show now "INTV presents HOOP! Super Pro Basketball" as title.

 

- Slap Shot: Super Pro Hockey

 

- Super NFL Football

 

 

NO DAMNED TARD

 

i forgot even the binaries at home not only the instructions how to hack them, rinse of a mind i have.

 

ok, you will have to wait a week or two, i'm sorry but i'm an old dude with a weak mind (no i was always this kind, since i can remember i forget things).

 

but what i can post meanwhile and to entertain you a little or shorten the time or to advertise my hacks are the boxes and some overlays.

really a big sorry, i'm a idiot, but i started this thread and linked it already thus i have to publish something.

for this time i upload the box art on AA.

 

the images are only 8bit depth to save space and to shorten loading time, still the quality is much better as a heavy compressed .jpg.

the smaller ones are ment as icons, on newer windows OS's you won't need the "icon" format and can attach them to a batch/shortcut.

 

i won't include the old versions you see here in the zipped binaries folder, if you like to compare or use the old versions lookout for my old entry in

i noticed fdr4prez has also made some super soccer and soccer2 boxes.

 

(erm they was never missing - in my case)

NOTES:
------

I decided to shorten Soccer games to 22 + 23 mins (7 min. overtime). 
Basketball to 4 x 6 mins (3 min. overtime).
Maybe the Basketball quarters are quite short in half of the time now.
Even the Football games seems to me short with 4x8min


NAMING

The title screen name string has (can) been modified to identify the
hacked games when you run them 
(without to disassemble you can't edit the length of the string).

NASL SOCCER = "SOCA45" instead of "SOCCER"
SOCCER2 = "SOCB45" instead of "SOCCER"
SUPER SOCCER = "SUPER SOCA45" instead of "SUPER SOCCER"
WORLD CUP FOOTBALL = "WORLD CUP SOCCER45" instead of "WORLD CUP FOOTBALL"
NBA BASKETBALL = "BASKETBL24" instead of "BASKETBALL"
NHL HOCKEY = "HOKY30" instead of "HOCKEY"
NFL FOOTBALL = "FOOTBL32" instead of "FOOTBALL"
SLAM DUNK = "HOOP!" instead of "HOOP!" 
The name in the title screen IS "HOOP!", it seems to be the working title (?),
this name will also show up briefly when you reset the game using "sears".
As soon as you hack the game jzIntzv will show "HOOP!" in the title bar,
because it's a "unknown dump" and it simply reads the title screen string.
I edited even the title in the visible title screen to
"HOOP! 4X6 MIN. BASKETBALL" because i like this name.
SLAP SHOT! = "SLAP SHOT!" instead of "Super Pro HOCKEY"
Further i changed the title on the scoreboard from "Super Pro Hockey"
to "3x10 Min. Hockey".
SUPER PRO FOOTBALL = "SF" instead of "xx".
SUPER NFL FOOTBALL = "MATTEL HACK" instead of "1983 MATTEL"
There is no title string in this game except the copyright "1983 MATTEL",
thus i altered simply this string to seperate the files.


I even suggest to rename the files, i.e.:
"NASL Soccer (1979) (Mattel).bin" to 
"NASL Soccer 45min (1979) (Mattel) [h].bin"
(equal to "goodromnames" [h] indicates the hacked binary).

Both will help to recognize the hacked games as hacks wherever they appear.


SUPER SOCCER

Using the right controller to start the game will terminate the program.
This is a bug of the original game (or dump?).
You can evade this error by starting the game with the ECS attached,
because this game is designed for a maximum of four players (do not use
the "mini" ecs.bin provided by joe zbiciak because it only emulates the
three extra PSG channels, the game won't run with it).


WORLD CUP SOCCER (WORLD CUP FOOTBALL)

This game runs properly without the ECS attached while it even supports
up to four players (do not use the "mini" ecs.bin provided by joe zbiciak
because it only emulates the three extra PSG channels, the game won't run).

The two games "SUPER SOCCER" and "WORLD CUP SOCCER" look and feel similar,
but the data is completely different though there will be obviousely more
differences between them as one can "feel", or that it's just a "bugfix".
Personally i can't tell any differences between all soccer games when i
play them, neither one is harder to play i guess.
Nonetheless i prefere the unreleased "SOCCER 2", might be just because of
the adverts.
