ISSUES WITH EGGERLAND MYSTERY AND THE PHOENIX?

Recommended Posts

Anyone else having issues or problems with Eggerland Mystery working on their PHOENIX? While most of my Colecovision collection works fine on my PHOENIX there are a handful of games that dont work for whatever the reason and the newest one is Eggerland Mystery. I've yet to try it on my standard Colecovision but on my PHOENIX the title screen loads and that's it. You cant start a game no matter what button on the controller I pressed. I tried switching controllers and also controller jacks but that didnt work either. The game goes into demo mode and then freezes. Anyone else experience this?

I've just tested the game on my Phoenix and it does get past the title screen, through the password screen and onto gameplay.  So, like Pixelboy suggested, you should check that you're using the latest Phoenix firmware and the latest CV core.

 

That said, I have encountered two major issues with the game:

  1. Phoenix : there is a continuous annoying whistling sound (kind of like a poorly tuned radio) that plays throughout the game.  This does NOT occur on a real CV.
  2. Real CV & Phoenix : password select screen : quick movements of the joystick makes the cursor move 3 or 4 items.  A quick press of the fire button selects an item multiple times instead of just once.  There appears to be a coding issue with this screen whereby the polling for controller inputs registers multiple inputs when only one should be registered.  This makes accurate and easy selection of a password almost impossible.

I think I have the latest firmware, will need to verify. issues I have:

Very annoying whining sound

If I get lucky enough to get the game select menu it only chooses A and requires a password.

Have tried normal joystick and SF JP.

Will check the firmware when I get a change, but as of right now I can't play the game on my phoenix.  Hopefully firmware is the issue.

Has anyone reached out to collectorvision?

Gameplay is fine on my Phoenix, but I'm also getting that constant annoying whining sound.

If you have the whining sound, try re-installing core 7 from the release thread and verify it says 0007 next to the cv core in the load cores or install cores screen.

Thanks for getting back to me, do you know where I can get the latest firmware update and how to I go about installing it? Tested the game on my Colecovision with super game module and it works fine

 in the first post. There should be instructions for installation in the manual, but basically put the file in the root of the sdcard and make sure the file name does not change when copying it over. Then when you turn on the system, immediately hit # to enter the service menu, then 1 to install core, then 1 to install cv core. The LED should then flash purple while it is updating.

Ok thank you I'll install it when I get home and then give it a go

Okay, that fixed the sound problem for me.  But I am still finding the password select screen to be literally impossible to control.  The cursor moves/jumps at lightning speed and pressing the fire button to select an item ends up selecting it 5, 6 or more times.  This is not a Phoenix issue as it also occurs on a real CV.  Are others not having this issue?

 

Some feedback from CollectorVision on this would be appreciated.

This doesn't help with standard cv users, but the SNES controller on the Phoenix is a little better at not jumping around or multiple selecting.
