Atari 7800 manuals..

Recommended Posts

Well, after 2 nights of playing Impossible Mission, I still haven't found the puzzle pieces on page 12 of the manual 😡 Beginning to think they are the ones that make it Impossible... (Any idea if the PAL version has them?)

Well, this has turned into a slight side mission :P

Still haven't gotten the pieces, but I have managed to map out a little bit of the PAL rom via MAME.  Oddly my first launch/initial load map doesn't match the one on the internet.  Thought
I'd share what I have so far...

The first map is always the same on cart. It is randomized after that. It is also different between NTSC and PAL.  Emulation is likely going to be different as well.

Ok, so I am at a complete loss here.  So I mapped out a good chunk of the NTSC version, then I mapped out almost all of the PAL version, now I've mapped out the "Possible Mission" version, and while grumbling that I suck at the game and cheats don't work on MAME- I finally take a good look at the above videos and the map screens are not even close to alike.  In the ROM dumps I've been using in MAME, the buttons are all red and the "color" buttons are just circles of red, yellow, and green.  In the videos posted to youtube, the buttons are blue and the "color" buttons look like actual buttons and are blue, yellow, and green.  What is going on here??!!?

One of the graphical enhanced versions of the game is being viewed on YouTube.   

Sprites and colors have been modified and/or swapped. 

 

The lead player character is a clear indicator:

After two weeks of playing the game just to get 3 puzzle piece sprites (which I still don't have), it probably would have been quicker to learn Atari 7800 ROM hacking 🤨

Amazing what we can (and can't) do with old games these days.
