Asteroids/Sadistroids HSC minor bug

Recommended Posts

I noticed that Asteroids and Sadistroids report the high score in variations 34 (or so) and up shifted by one down.

Example: I play variation 36, the high score is reported as variation 35. Variation 66 is not reported at all.

Variations up to 33 are reported correctly.

I have checked the transformation in the HSC backend. The "Game Variation" is send as a byte value (not BCD).

 

The Sadistroids and Asteroids ROM has been modified by @Thomas Jentzsch

...based on your code. :) 

 

Anyway, the game code does some odd things to modify the game now to insert the kids variations. I will post a fix tomorrow.

Here are the updated ROMs. Please test.

 

BTW: Maybe the scores above game 32 should be deleted or moved to the correct position.

But how to test it? I uploaded those roms to my nextcloud storage and tried all of them on Pluscart, variations 65 and 66 and no score was reported.

The list contains only 64 entries, this has to be fixed by @Al_Nafuur.

There are no entries (games) for variation 65 and 66 in the database. That's why they don't appear in the select box.

You have to insert the single player kids game as 33. And 66 is the two player kids game.

They are registered, but no games have been sent for these variations, so they arn't shown in the select box..

@Thomas Jentzsch PlusROM detection for these ROMs fails (NMI vector does not point to a valid domain name in the ROM):

I moved the scores and incremented the game variations above 32.

Ok, here are all 4 ROMs again.

 

Thanks @Thomas Jentzsch

ROMs are uploaded to the HSC folder.

Sorry, I have to update again. The asteroid movement was not smooth in the ROMs above.

 

I really hope this the last fix.

This was exactly what I noticed yesterday, but I was not sure if it is really an issue :)

Have you already updated the HSC ROMs in PlusRoms? Now the movement looks smooth.
