F18A Zaxxon demo

Recommended Posts

In a SF book written long ago, a fighter pilot used radio call sign zee-queue-ex-one, or ZQX-1. I think it sounds like Zaxxon.

Za99on with the 9's shifted down a bit and a different color.  Which would spell out as Zaggon.

Can't tell you how impressed I am with your work on this, watched the latest vid a couple of days ago.

 

How about Zaxx99n?

The latest version has simple collision detection.

Which firmware of F18A is it being tested on?

I tried the demo with version F18A v1.9 and the sprites are large and blocky, the screen is mostly scrambled.

Has anybody else tried with v1.9. 

BTW, it does the same thing on Classic99.

Hmm, I thought I fixed that before the last version. Anyway, here's the latest version. I have just tested that it works on 1.9 firmware.

Classic99 doesn't have enough F18A support to run the demo.

I tried it last night.  Does the fire button work?

 

I'm using a set of free joysticks I picked up a couple of years ago and this was the first time they were plugged in.  Haven't tried any other program yet to test the fire button.

Yest, the fire button works on the old and tired TI joysticks.

By the number of downloads so far, it is apparent others have tried the latest version as well.

I think the fact that the previous version didn't work shows that you cannot draw that conclusion from the number of downloads.

Yep, that would be people like me. See it, download it, then wait a long time before loading it up and playing. Oh well, my time is eat up by so many projects going on.

Will this run on Classic99?

I was not able to get to run on Classic99, but it does run on the real TI99/4A with F18A v1.9.
