Unicorns season: Prince of Persia for the A8!

Recommended Posts

Have I just me Emkays brother?

 

I never said you can't cheat on the Atari hardware hence the mention of Omnimon, sigh...

 

I never gave the impression you could not cheat on real hardware, I simply talked Altirra because unless you have a Turbo freezer or Omnimon and a bit of machine code knowledge then you cannot do save states. Altirra acts as a very easily customisable cheaters paradise as its all in there, save states, rom changes, OS changes etc etc.

 

So yes it can be done on real hardware if you have the added items..

 

As for my attitude, look I get some flak for dragging threads in to off topic nightmare land, your reply was nothing to do with the act of cheating or that game, it was just to push that hardware can do it too so I wanted to curtail a drift. If I have offended you I apologise but you manner isn't so sweet either.

Well, people can hack virtually everything given time and knowledge (;)), but that's a real longshot, as most people just want to play, not hack their games or change memory-addresses values in QMEG monitor, etc.

Anyway, PoP will miss nothing for me in this area and I'm glad rensoup will add basic cheat options, I only explained that while emulators are helpful, maybe they shouldn't be treated like common denominator.

And truly agree, NOTHING beats the hardware and yes I have a great love of Altirra as well but beside the keyboard I'm typing on is a stacked C64 and 800XL, but we have to take into account that not only is hardware starting to be like Ebay gold fodder but its not always easy or possible to get the real stuff especially when people choose such silly prices while others  pay them. So that make's Altirra and all the other emulators out there so damn useful and special. Altirra is my fave because it just grew soo well and the complexity of possibilities for devs and gamers is just amazing. The fact Altirra is out there and is used in the production of hardware and software for real machines is a testament to it.

 

@Mr Robot me an expert on it, nah, more over excited amatuer :)  Also I have more time than most to sit and play with it...

That's just very cool start considering your "apology" at the end. Was it intended to offend me or Emkay whom I don't even know personally and don't share many of his oppinions? No clue who you met, but I feel more and more hypocrisy in your good-mannered answers, yet leaving that malicious taste.

Yeah, discussing PoP cheats in context of "Altirra/Emulator will help you" and expressing similiar feel that start-timer is not that important anyway, had indeed nothing to do with PoP 😐

What wasn't sweet enough for you in my first reply (#971), honestly? Or you're the one who is biased (#972)and living past discussion about intro, etc.

 

And believe me, I wasn't starting "real hardware vs emulator" flame, as I used both, I just feel real Atari is more "important" when it comes to designing software usability-wise.


 

Coming back to PoP, I'm excited to hear the news from @rensoup after few weeks about colourful title-screen, I feel the end-effect will be great indeed even if not "classic"-alike and Atari will excel GFX-wise not only in the gameplay 👍

Guys, c'mon. We have amazing people creating and porting games for our beloved classic Ataris in 2020. What is there to be unhappy about?! 😛

 

rensoup, please keep up the good work, I hope this project can be completed and we can have the full game on Atari!

I'm focusing on the title pic... it's quite a bit of work and it's difficult to tell if it's going  to be worth the hassle.

 

So yeah I'm not sure where I'm going yet but that's worked nicely before!
