How are we supposed to know which games benefit from ECS and/or ivoice?

 

Running jzintv's rom2bin on the .rom's typically gives a config file that says things like

 

ecs = 1

voice_compat = 1  (or voice = 1, for Mr. Turtle)

 

From some old threads, I gathered that "ecs = 1" is conservative, and should probably

be replaced with ecs_compat.  So I was guessing that the contest entries do not use ECS.

 

And I guessed Mr. Turtle was the only one using ivoice.

 

But from this award, it seems Infiltrator can also use ECS and/or ivoice.

 

So which contest entries can use ECS and/or ivoice?

 

And going forward, is there a way to determine this on our own?

 

thanks!

Both Infiltrator and The Pandora's Incident can use the extra sound chip on the ECS.

 

It is indicated in the posts made by the author. It is easy to tell by yourself if you run jzintv with and without ECS support (and you have good ear).

 

We knew Mr. Turtle had voice because the author showed it in the video he made. Also you need to run jzintv with voice support.

 

If the author doesn't tell us, it is not immediately obvious if ECS or voice is used.

 

I remember running Bomb Squad on emulator and never hearing the voice nor missing it because I didn't knew it had voice!

Oh, wow.  I remember reading that Mattel sold the Intellivoice games in markets where the Intellivoice device was not sold, and always thought that was in poor taste.

 

I hope you had a chance later on to play with voice.  It is one of my favorite Intellivision games (along with B-17 Bomber), and I can't imagine playing it at all without the voice.  I can't see how it would be possible or even fun!  😱

The "Intellivision Academy" has a nice ring to it. 🙂

There is a professor in Germany that does Vectrex Academy... It is a university course! I would have killed for that when I was in college!
