Skeleton+ Not Working on Harmony Encore

Recommended Posts

Hey there guys and gals! Up until today I've never had a single problem with any game on my Harmony Encore, everything from Pitfall II to any homebrew I've thrown at it has played perfectly, but I decided to try out Skeleton+ today (the rom was downloaded from the official AtariAge page here: https://atariage.com/software_page.php?SoftwareLabelID=2381) and my Harmony Encore seems to be having a problem with it. I can hear the sound from the game just fine, but the picture is nothing but a black screen. 

 

Has anyone else had issues running Skeleton+ on their Harmony Encore cart or is there just something goofy going on with my particular Harmony cart?

@Jin Well what do you know...it fails on my Encore too.  Same result. just a black screen.  However, it works just fine on my UnoCart.  Have to admit that I never tried the ROM before, as I have a copy of the cart.  This was an early purchase of mine from the AA Store.

Does the attached one work? I noticed the game doesn't seem to hit vblank, and I'm guessing harmony happens to leave this register set.

There is a patched version of Skeleton+ that Thomas Jentzsch did a few years ago that will work on the Harmony.

Thank you so much guys! The fixed versions work perfectly and it's great finally getting to play this game on real hardware. I had played it on the Activision Anthology collection for the Game Boy Advance before but had never tried it on the big screen. I'm definitely going to have to add a copy of Skeleton+ to my cart the next time I make an AtariAge Store purchase. :)
