Freewheeling Games - free ROM downloads

Recommended Posts

Hey folks! I've not been around a lot this past year, and I've REALLY not been around a lot for the past month or two. Now that we're all stuck indoors for the foreseeable future, and the physical copies are long since sold out, I figured it's time to unleash the hounds ROMS!

 

I'm attaching the ROMS for Desert Bus, Goatnom, and FW Diagnostics. For free. To anyone who wants them. You guys have been such a source of support and encouragement and I've had a blast making Intellivision software over the years. It's not much, but if I can help at least one person stave off 8 hours of boredom through all of this... then good :)

 

I'll also make them available for free download at fwgames.ca/roms_new

 

As an aside, I discovered someone who posted a full 8 hour INTV Desert Bus session on Youtube. Amazing!

Wow, that really generous.

 

I recently purchased Desert Bus rom and the physical release of the FW Diagnostics and they were worth every penny. :)

And a special AtariAge-only ROM variant: Desert Bus, Cascadia Edition!

 

This was whipped up in a mad frenzy about a year and a half ago, for a charity event. Enjoy! Variant collectors, do you want this on a cart? :D

Hmm,

I think i might just have a spare eight hours. 👍

 

You only get 1 point for a one way trip. Don't set your sights so low, go for the 16 hour round trip and double your points to 2 😂

I'm going to have to try Desert Bus with --macho.  Running jzIntv with --macho=N, where N is a number, multiplies the game speed by N.  --macho=1.5 is 50% faster, --macho=2 is 100% faster (twice as fast), etc.  With --macho=8, one way should take an hour.

Yeah, but can you stay on the road?  Maybe you can create a script to automate it.

I mean, if you make this one on cart, I should get first dibs....  :-D  Just sad that the Inty I took to the event to play it died about 2 hours in.  (It stopped accepting controller input, so I ran off the road.  "No.  Nooooo. WHY ISN'T IT GOING BACK ON THE ROAD!‽?" TAPTAPTAPTAPTAP)

I didn't have many live viewers (I wasn't one of the main participants, of course,) but the game was a hit with the people locally in the room with me. (sigh - being in the room with people other than the family members who live in my house... What was that like again?)

If the event happens in-person again this year (still up in the air,) I might just go for the full 3 points!

Thanks again for helping out with such an awesome thing!
