This time is the turn of MSX... 5 new homebrew games (MSXdev Contest) added to the roster! ;)
Draconic Throne (horizonal shoot'em up)
Linez (puzzle game)
Quartet (puzzle game)
Xracing (racing, top-view)
XSplelunker (platform game)

PS: I added the initials "HB" to all MSX homebrew games, now  identify them in the FBN "Select Game" menu should be easier.

XRacing is quite an amazing feat - it manages to do smooth scrolling on a computer+vdp that is incapable of doing smooth scrolling :)  It's also a fun little racing game with a nice soundtrack.

Thanks for taking the time to add these, Gab75!

best regards,

You're welcome! :)
Among other things, Xracing was the winner of MSXDev'18 Contest... probably it's the best (or one of the best) top-view racing game on MSX 1 !

PS: this game brings to my mind the "legendary" Gremlin's Super Cars (I played a lot with the Amiga version) ! ;)

I'm sure that you will not be disappointed... as dink wrote, this game has a very smooth scrolling (a rare feature for the MSX 1 games) ;)

5 new NES/Famicom homebrew games added by dink... :)
- Che-man (a funny and "strange" platform game)
- EeeAaaOoo (not a real game, but a peculiar "tech-demo")
- FallingTiles (a Zapper light-gun game)
- Machine Caves (a Thrust style game)
- Wolfling (a very nice platform game, IMHO the best of the "lot")

Now back to the MSX... I added two puzzle games made by RetroSouls: Twinlight and Yazzie

Post by: dink on May 21, 2020, 09:18:27 AM
After playing MSX Yazzie, I love this version!  Much better than the Megadrive - I think the 8 bit nature suits this game better. (My opinion, of course!)

IIRC the game was born on ZX Spectrum (the MSX version should be the same), the Megadrive version, with the scrolling background and the bigger sprites, is a "reinterpretation" ... when you say "worse is better" ! :P :)

Post by: Gab75 on May 22, 2020, 12:14:21 AM
The genre infos have been updated for all SEGA Master System and Game Gear games... I hope it might be to help! :)
Moreover I added 3 new titles in the Game Gear roster... one HB game and two translation hacks.
Dangerous Demolition (HB)
Godzilla - Kaijuu Daishingeki (english translation)
Madou Monogatari iii - Kyuukyoku Joou-Sama (english translation)
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: dink on May 22, 2020, 12:25:17 AM
I love games that have the amazing innovation of that was around in the early 80s. 

Dangerous Demolition looks simple, but its actually a totally new take on an old genre: Breakout.
Kinda like a breakout shoot-em-up.  But, you're a little guy that runs around with a shooter instead of the paddle :D

Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Gab75 on May 24, 2020, 12:12:47 AM

Custodian (Atari ST porting of the homonymous title)
Griel's Quest for the Holy Porron (a sequel/evolution of MSX Griel's Quest for the Sangraal)
Wolfenstein 3D (probably the first popular FPS, this version is very smooth considering the "simple" megadrive hardware)
Zooming Secretary (a simple, but funny, action-puzzle game)
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)

Greetings, Gab75 and dink and whomever else is in this thread and site reading this!:)

  I joined on Dink's suggestion.  I will be doing a showcase video of all of the Coleco Additions.  Due to the simple fact that my childhood dream of getting a C64 was bursted by getting an ADAM computer, instead...I now have nostalgia for ADAM/Coleco:)  But, it all worked out!  I still got to enjoy C64, truly for the first time, within just the last few years!  I had some great fun with Coleco/ADAM, and even Atari 2600 games, which also worked with the Coleco Add-On Peripheral for ADAM.  I definitely had a lot of fun with it, and played the hell out of Buck Rogers SGM and Dragon's Lair SGM.  When Dink added Dragon's Lair SGM to FBNEO, it was like Xmas for me.  Literally, the one single game in all of existence that I wanted to play again!  Of course, I also thank Team Pixelboy and whomever else for the nice conversion!  We just need the SGM of Donkey Kong, some day, some how!

  Will follow-up when my video is done and posted!  And, also enjoying seeing the other homebrews and such added for the other systems, NES, MSX, etc.  And, as I told Dink, I used to dread even hearing the word homebrew!  It takes a good one to get my attention!  Abobo's Big Adventure was the true first one to show me they could be fun!

  I may add the Bubble Bobble and DK Hacks to my MAME 2003 Xtreme Core, as I haven't really added many of those yet.  They have been surprisingly gimmicky and cool, between the two subsets.  My biggest concerns were fixing up games that had control issues, which I did in my last Release.  Over 100 games had predesignated controls that were on a keyboard (useless for pick up and play with a controller), such as Xybots, Ikari Warriors, etc.  I wanted ALL of these to default use L1/R1, which worked out great!  Arcadez2003 and Grant2258 and Gpstar and BigBlueFrontEnd have all been really cool when it comes to working with MAME, collaboration wise.  Sometimes, it isn't just the homebrews or hacks that get my attention...But, also games it seems almost noone even knew existed, such as the spiritual sequel to Strider, made by the same devs, Cannon Dancer AKA Osman.  Quite an interesting game to check out.

Be back in a bit with the video showing some of these fun ventures in action.  Fruits of the labor, so to speak:)

Welcome KMFDManic! :)

The homebrews help to keep alive the old consoles/computers. Some years ago I was quite wary toward them, I thought (wrongly) that they had a very poor quality level in most cases... I'm happy to say (write) the facts proved me wrong! ;)
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Gab75 on June 05, 2020, 12:47:03 AM

Awesome Job Gab75.  I have a ColecoVision Homebrew Video Uploading now.  Just refresh my channel and you will probably see it pop up in an hour or so.  It will be Playstation Classic - ColecoVision Homebrew FTW!:)  I go through all the games that worked for me!  Video is a little longer than my normal ones.  But, it was fun going through a good 40 games.  I will do more of these, and move onto showcasing the other fun stuff like PC-Engine, MD, etc, that are also FBNEO worthy:)  Thanks again, both you and dink!

PS: I never played to the ColecoVision version of Dragon's Lair, but from what I see it's very similar to the C64 version. During the 80s I played a lot with the CBM version, I still remember that I demolished,  literally speaking, a "poor joystick"... "childlike aggressiveness" ! :P

Very cool. However, "Afterburner (Euro)" doesn't work properly here. After you choose controls it's supposed to load from the start of side B,and I don't think it's doing so.

Do you go to dips (ctrl-f5, or via mouse) and select side b for tape?

As dink wrote, you need to go into DIPswitch settings (ctrl+f5) and select side B for tape... moreover, for a proper functioning, the operation must be done when appears the first notice (see the following snapshot) ;)

Hello friends,
There are 2 really amazing games in this batch:
From Below - it's Tetris, but with a twist - the octopus throws blocks up on the screen if you're too slow at clearing lines, the music is great, the game is great, it goes between day/night/seasons.  Super polished game.

Nim & Nom - you jump around and eat things, it's really addicting as well as cute :)

Some people like to avoid homebrews, but these are really commercial-quality - check it out!

Stifu, good question, earlier this year the rule has been overturned due to the simple facts:
One can buy these homebrew roms and play it on any nes emulator, why not fbn?
fbn supporting recent homebrews has lead to people finding a good game and supporting it.

I have some questions regarding ColecoVision games... how do you enter "coins" in Mario Bros.? And how you can map the "menu" key for another game?
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: dink on August 14, 2020, 02:08:56 PM
Neville,
regarding Mario Bros: they made it similar to arcade emulation - '5' then '1' :)
What other game(s) are you referring to?

ColecoVision games are sometimes hard to figure out, but if you can't get a game to start or accept input, try pressing all of the keys that the p1 controller has (0-9, # or *)

Some games that use a trackball / dial needs P2's keypad to start it and/or enter the level of difficulty.

best regards,

Mmmm... the "Mario" thing doesn't seem to work here. I'm using FBNeo Git 13-08-2020 x64. Do I need to remap anything?

EDIT: Got it, you need to remap "1" and "5" to their respective keys. Now it works.

(https://i.imgur.com/5emajkP.png)

Oh, and the other game I was referring to is "Super Sketch":

Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Gab75 on August 14, 2020, 03:37:17 PM
Relating to Mario Bros, you need to go into "Map Game Inputs" menu (F5) and assign a keyboard/joypad input to each entry of the virtual keypad (the original ColecoVision joypad embeds a numeric keypad). After doing that, you can press key/button corresponding to numeric keypad button 5 (insert coin) and key corresponding to numeric keypad button 1 (start game).

EDIT:
Relating to Super Sketch, probably the trouble is that it uses a CV device not supported by FBN... see the video:

Would it be possible to add some more ZX Speccy games, possibly from a YS Top-100 list or something similar?

Here are some titles that I'd love to see supported, but are currently missing from the .dat file:
The Monty series (Aufwiedersehen Monty, Impossamole, Monty On The Run, Wanted Monty Mole)
Beyond The Ice Palace
Castlevania Spectral Interlude (a relatively new one)
Cauldrons 1 and 2
CJ Elephant Antics, CJ in the USA
Cybernoid 1 and 2
Dynamite Dan 1 and 2
Elven Warrior
Exolon
Fred
Game Over 1 and 2
HATE
Heart Broken
Heartland
Highway Encounter
Into The Eagle's Nest
Joe Blades
Metal Army
Myth - History in the Making
Nebulus
The Olli & Lissa series
Rex
Rick Dangerous 2
Saboteur 1 and 2
Savage
The Seymour series
Soldier of Fortune
St. Dragon
Stop The Express
Stormlord 1 and 2
Tetris (the Mirrorsoft one)
Three Weeks In Paradise
Trantor

On a side note, would it also be possible to add a TZX/TAP file as a possible rom for each game, seeing that those are the formats distributed on World of Spectrum and suchlike?
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Gab75 on September 18, 2020, 12:43:44 AM
Hi Svipur,
the ZX Spectrum is in a preliminary emulation stage (currently it's not under development), it supports only .Z80 ROMs and many games don't work...
if it helps, in the last few days many new Coleco Vision games have been added and they work perfectly! ;)

Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Svipur on September 18, 2020, 05:50:37 AM
Cheers, Gab. Yeah, I've been monitoring that one as well, and it does make up for the limited Speccy support somewhat.

But my particular point of interest in this case is FBNeo's support for specific ZX Speccy games. If the .z80 format is non-negotiable, I'd be willing to compromise on that one, as long as we can think of a relatively reliable source of CRC-matching .z80 images (ease of obtaining games was the primary reason I mentioned World of Spectrum and the support for .tap/.tzx images).

How do I go about expanding the list of supported ZX Speccy games in the .dat file? I can make the respective .z80 images for testing purposes, if that might help.

To add (or at least try to add) new games You should manually edit the d_spectrum.cpp file (with the specific metadatas and infos of the game/s) and after that compile your own FBNeo exe...
https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo/tree/master/src/burn/drv/spectrum

... but I'll be straight with you, (IMHO) at the current stage of development "the job is not worth it"... ;)

Yes, but a ZX Spectrum emulation without the support for the TZX/TAP files is a "limited" emulation... this is just my personal opinion and it doesn't take anything away from your nice work! :)
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Svipur on September 18, 2020, 03:36:38 PM
Cheers, lads.

For what it's worth, I made a pull request for d_spectrum.cpp with a bunch of games using CRCs from publicly available sources of .z80 images. The choice is somewhat limited given the .z80 requirement, but my take on it is that we can at least populate the list with the popular stuff that works.

I'd be willing to provide Z80 for some of those... I understand most Spectrum emulators can save in that format. On the downside, I'm not very skilled and some of those games are multi-load, I don't know if a Z80 of those would cover the whole game.

I'm sorry, I know little about .Z80 format... in theory a "snapshot file format" can also support multi-load softwares (e.g. in VICE, a Commodore's 8 bit computers emulator, in the snapshot format "VSF" it's possible save the complete disk image too), but for the .Z80 format I don't know.
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)

You already have some multi-load games in the set, but I think it's because 128k machines could load all levels at the same time.
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)

I believe only SLT snapshots can do multi-loaders, saving each block in a separate segment within one snapshot. Spectaculator also has SZX snapshots - which are basically memory snapshots with an embedded TAP file. But with Z80 snapshots I see no feasible way to include multi-loaders.

Now, having said that, some of those I categorise as multi-parters (where each part can be loaded independently of others, often expecting you to enter a code to prove you've completed the previous parts, e.g. Savage, Rex, Phantis, Navy Moves, etc.) - and those we can still include, treating each part as a separate game. For some, albeit rarely, there's a uniloader available (e.g. Wacky Races).

The types of games I can't find a way to include are:
1. Those that load levels only when prompted by the game - this rules out most of the racing stuff, including all Out Runs, Enduro, Paris-Dakar, etc., as well as e.g. Myth, Gremlins 2 and Lorna.
2. Those that load up the main game only after the player has set up the game to his liking - e.g. changed the controls, or chose the character (WWF Wrestlemania), etc. We could in theory dump the rom after said selection (as was done with Vindicators previously, where the game would just drop you into action without letting you set up the ship, weapons, controls, anything), but that would lock any player out of changing anything, and that would render the game unplayable for most.

Currently, from your list these are the ones I can't find uniloaders for, and have to exclude from adding support for:
Desperado 1 and 2
Gremlins 2
Lorna
Mad Mix 2
Narco Police
New Zealand Story
North & South
Out Run
Out Run Europe
Paris-Dakar
Perico Delgado
Soviet
Silent Shadow
Tour '91
Turbo Out Run
Viaje al Centro de la Tierra
WWF Wrestlemania
Zona 0

If you can find a uniloader rom for any of those, drop me a note, I'll look into it. It pains me to no end to leave out Lorna (or, for that matter, Myth).

It's fine, really. I understand the Z80 format has its limitations and there are many other ZX Spectrum emulator to choose.

But a man can dream, and I dream of the day when the Spectrum emulation under FBN can load TAP, TZX and why not, DSK files.

The good news is: sometime in the future I will be able to add support for a better format to allow for those games to function properly.  It's probably not too much harder than fds for nintendo - and I wrote that from scratch.  the code for my fds I/O even made it into fceux.  fds looks like a disk, it quacks like a disk, but in reality - it's a tape. (as far as the computer is concerned)

Looks like the batch is merged and good to go. Cheers, Dink.

Just a quick note regarding Abu Simbel Profanation. The English version (as is the case with the original Spanish releases) requires switching to Issue 2 keyboard. Otherwise, the game won't register you pressing any of the numbered keys to choose the controls and start the game. The included Spanish version is a re-release, and that one works fine without any fiddling.
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: dink on September 28, 2020, 09:21:57 AM
Svipur,
thanks :)
I set Abu Simbel to use issue2 hw by default.
(delete config/games/spec_abusimpr.ini and then load the game if you loaded it prior)

I've been browsing the new Spectrum additions, taking pictures and whatnot. Extraordinary job, mates! Now all I need is a rubber USB keyboard to complete the experience ;-)

I had an Amstrad CPC (boooo!) back in those days, but it's hard not to like the ZX clearer graphics, and even the color patterns have their charm. But don't tell any of those speccy fans I said that.

EDIT: A couple of things I noticed while going through the Spectrum game list: 1) "Barbarian" should have different entries for the Palace and the Psygnosis releases, because they are completely different games. And also, "Game Over II" is actually called "Phantis". It was renamed as GOII in the UK to capitalise on the success of the first GO. So it should be called "Phantis (a.k.a. Game Over II)" or similar.

Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Svipur on September 28, 2020, 12:00:03 PM
Yeah, the entries for both Barbarians were there, but the Palace one was marked as a clone of the Psygnosis one. I separated and renamed both (the Palace one's full name has 'Ultimate Warrior' in it) without touching anything else, so no updates to romsets needed.

Regarding Phantis, I personally had that one as Game Over II, only learning about the original title many years later, so I used that name under the impression that it'd make the game easier to find for others. But then again, the game did originally come out as Phantis, so I might be in the minority. Renamed it to Phantis (Game Over II) - again, no need to update any romsets.

Threw in a nice 2010 game called Sea Dragon (seeing that it's almost October, and this is as close to Hunt for Red October as it gets, with an excellent AY version of Das Boot to... boot. Pun intended).

And I have a few more requests of various stuff for the ZX... hope you don't mind, because I know my previous list was HUGE.

- AMC: Astro Marine Corps

- Capitan Trueno

- Choy Lee Fut Kung Fu Warrior

- Double Dragon I-II (if possible, I think they're multi-load)

- Goody

- Ice Breaker

- IK+: International Karate Plus

- Mortadelo y Filemon 2

- Mundial de futbol

- Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

- Test Drive II

- Tintin on the Moon

- Turbo Cup

- Vigilante
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Svipur on September 28, 2020, 06:44:36 PM
Capitan Trueno, Mundial de Futbol, and Mot are in. (What happened to Mot? I'm not seeing it on the list any more.)

Also, FBN does support two Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles games already (the side platformer one with top-down roaming in between stages and the infamous jump in the sewers, as well as the arcade beat-em-up one). Is there a separate game named TMNT as opposed to TMHT?

I'll try to get to the others tomorrow.

Awww, thanks, Dink. Just seeing the LOAD "" brings a tear to my eye.

Got my list of multi-loaders handy, will give those a chance once TAPs are in.

Curiously, Z80 might remain the preferred format for multi-parters, so that there's no need for a tape browser and the player doesn't have to fiddle with rewinding the tape to a proper position before loading.
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)

Svipur,
Of course - we'll just add the taps like we add regular romfiles for the games that need them.
Try msx_xenon, and watch how it loads - I'll most likely add that for spectrum.  That's my tape robot, he's quite handy.

Heh, looks pretty neat. Almost makes the startup of 48k games look quite a bit more nostalgia-inducing than 128k ones. Seeing that LOAD "" typed in and all, instead of the robot selecting the Tape Loader.

So f***ing cool!

And I wonder, rather than having a closed set, once this feature is finished, could we have a blank setup that lets you run anything from your collection? Or is it too much work to add a file selector to the dip switches? I know, I know, I keep asking for things. But this would put an end to the Spectrum requests. According to MobyGames, the system has 3305 known games, not to mention future HBs.

I just tossed up the WIP code w/tap support, some notes:
I set all the tap's to 128k, because some of them have better audio with it.  or with myth, its the only way to get audio at all.

narco police: when trying to set kempston, it reads from port xxDF, this is a kempston mouse port - which the game wants.  you'll need to use the (s)inclair joy interface (Intf2 in inputs editor) instead for this game.

tnzs: is there any way to select inputs for this game instead of keys?  (can someone find out for me?)

Addendum: Also fixed the borders, thanks for the idea Neville :)  Tomorrow I will try to clean up the code a bit and get rid of those ugly lines on the top and left side.

Post by: Svipur on September 30, 2020, 07:48:14 AM
Just tried out the new TAP entries, everything seems to be working absolutely flawlessly. Thanks for the superb work, Dink!

With TAP support in place, my take is that we stick with Original Release TAPs from WoS, Spectrum Computing, etc. for new additions wherever possible, so as to make it easier for people to make the compatible ROMs themselves. Z80 will be the preferred format for those cases where each part is loaded from different positions on the same tape from Basic and not the game itself (that is, requiring you to rewind the tape BEFORE booting the game, e.g. Savage).

Will get on with adding the games from Neville's last request and the multi-loaders shortly.

My current list of multi-loaders is this (includes both those we couldn't add and those that need replacing in the current romset):
Back to the Future 3
Darius
Impossamole
Night Breed 128k
Rick Dangerous 2
Run the Gauntlet
St. Dragon
Stormlord 2
Strider 2
Super Hang-On
Vindicators
Desperado 1 and 2
Mad Mix 2
North & South
Paris-Dakar
Perico Delgado
Rescate en el Golfo
Soviet
Silent Shadow
SWIV
Tour '91
Viaje al Centro de la Tierra
WWF Wrestlemania
Zona 0
Double Dragon 1 and 2
Mortadelo y Filemon II

Oh, and regarding The New Zealand Story. The game's instructions say the game supports both Kempston and Sinclair joysticks (that is, it should recognise them when you press Fire in the main menu), but my gamepad is mapped to Kempston in all Speccy emulators, and I never could get TNZS to pick it up. Works just fine for Sinclair's Interface 2, though.

Glad you find my ideas useful. It didn't struck me how large the margin was until I tested the last batch of Spanish games. It seems they favored bigger sprites at the expense of screen size.

UPDATE: It's taken a while, but we can finally play many ZX games the way they were intended. "Outrun" was one of those I was more anxious to try, because the ZX Spectrum must be the only decent port until the Sega consoles came up.

(https://i.imgur.com/jvDfV2s.png)

More things... I see the new preferred ZX format is TAP. It's certainly much better than Z80, but I still think TZX should be considered or discarted in the near future. TZX is certainly the most faithful format I can think of, but adopting TZX also means (probably, I have zero programming skills) that a series of tape copy protection schemes will have to be implemented. So I'll understand if you stick to TAP for now. After all, ZX support should not be your main focus.

Also, Svipur asked yesterday about new games we may add now that TAP is supported. Double Dragon I-II, Golden Axe and WWF are the ones that come to my mind right now, but I'm sure we'll come up with more in the next days.

Terrific job, you all.

Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Svipur on September 30, 2020, 05:30:04 PM
Finished going through multiloaders and new requests (as well as a few more additions).

I've replaced the following existing entries:
Back to the Future 3
Castlevania (has a secret ending that loads if you beat the game 100%)
Darius
Night Breed
R-Type
Run the Gauntlet
Strider 2
SWIV
Vindicators

Apart from Neville's requests, I've also added the following gems:
Back to the Future 2 (well, this one's less of a gem and more of a 'we have BTTF 1 and 3 already, why not 2?')
Crosswize
Impossamole
Plot
Rick Dangerous 2
Robin of the Wood
Sidewize
Silent Shadow
St. Dragon
Stormlord 2

The three games I couldn't find a way to include are:
1. Super Hang-On - has speedlock.
2. Desperado 1 - conversion from TZX to TAP causes emulators to jump past the 8-byte header for the first level after loading the main menu. As a result, after starting the game, the game can't find the first level block. In other emus, this can be circumvented by rewinding back to the previous 8-byte block.
3. North & South - has speedlock.

EDIT: A few more requests:

TMNT and TMNT: The Coin Op --> I know, we have plenty of TMNT games already. But I still think they're worthy and different enough from their console counterparts.

Super Trux --> A pretty cool truck racing game in the vein of "Out Run".

Afteroids, Humphrey, and Shadow Dancer are also in. Each uses the TAP from its respective WoS page:
Afteroids: https://worldofspectrum.net/infoseekid.cgi?id=0000105
Humphrey: https://worldofspectrum.net/infoseekid.cgi?id=0002378
Shadow Dancer: https://worldofspectrum.net/infoseekid.cgi?id=0004421

Also, if it's not too much trouble, could you post requests as new posts instead of edits to old ones, so that I didn't just stumble on them by chance? ;j
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Neville on October 03, 2020, 03:40:24 PM
Sure, I'll keep that in mind. I did notice you could miss those, but it wasn't that vital. Plus I could have reminded you later.

This time the list is small, but they all are interesting titles.

Afteroids & Humphrey are two Spanish games I didn't include earlier in my requests. Afteroids is an Asteroids clone where stages ocupy more than one screen. A pretty neat game, and it also has some speech (!) while it loads.

Humphrey is a puzzle game. As usual with Spanish games of the era, it is too damn hard, but a great game nevertheless. You need to guide an alien film star (!) while he paints his new mansion, but the place is also full of annoying fans.

And Shadow Dancer... Honestly, I don't know if the ZX version is any good, but we already had Shinobi, and now that FBN can run TAP files it was only fair to add its sequel.

EDIT: Can't believe I forgot to thank you for your work... you rule, man!

Excellent. As for the computer versions of "Tetris", I have to agree. Mirrorsoft did a pretty poor job with the conversions. PC owners later got "Super Tetris" and "Tetris Classic", but 8 bit users weren't that lucky.

Neville, the new buzzer emulation affects games using the buzzer (not the ay8910), so, for example, try:
JetpacRX
Hades Nebula
Alter Ego

now take a break and try 180 (128k) for some nice AY8910 music :)

the new buzzer emulation affects games using the buzzer (not the ay8910), so, for example, try:

I don't know if it's possible, but it would be great to have an option in DIP switches menu to select "original buzzer emulation" and "enhanced buzzer emulation", with the "enhanced" option available by default.
I know, almost anything is possible (computationally speaking), but I mean: "if it's possible without an heavy coding work"... ;)

In any case, excellent work... the 1 bit beeper musics are amazing with the oversampling enhancement! :)

Some similar Mega Drive hacks were added not long ago... I know because I asked for those :biggrin:

Two caveats on BlastoBR's hack for SSF2, though: 1) It's in Brazillian only, although the author is working on an English version. 2) It shows garbled graphics on a variety of emulators, only Fusion seems to run it properly. I could contact the author on YouTube and he said he'll try to fix it for the English release.

UPDATE: That Golden Axe hack is also a potential problem. It uses a ROM variant that's very hard to find. I used it on a regular World v1.0 ROM and got a wrong checksum. That can be fixed with the Fix CheckSum utility, and afterwards the ROM seems to work fine, but I can't tell if this will result in a 100% working game.

Added a dip option to Spectrum: map Kempston to QAOPM or QAOPSpace.
This feature is for games that only support QAOPM or QAOPSpace as inputs.

If you find a game like this, please say it here - I will then set the game to use this configuration by default :)
f.ex 2 homebrews that already make use of this handy feature:
Moon Ranger

- Budokan
- HKM / Human Killing Machine
- Karnov
- Hypsys
- Casanova
- Thunderbirds

"Budokan" and "Thunderbirds" can be messy. "Budokan" took two tapes to access all sections, and "Thunderbirds" has 3-4 separate loads (independent?) with different sections.
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Svipur on October 25, 2020, 03:23:32 PM
Added in:
Aliens UK & US
Casanova
Human Killing Machine
Karnov
Hypsys
Thunderbirds

Also threw in Kendo Warrior, seemed somewhat appropriate.

Seeing how playing a tourney in Budokan requires loading off side C, picking the controls, then loading off side D, picking the fighting style, then loading off side B to get into the game proper, and then juggling between sides D and B for the rest of the game... I can't think of a feasible way of implementing that one. ;(
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Neville on October 25, 2020, 04:32:34 PM
It's OK. I always imagined there would be limitations, even with the new TAP support. Can't believe you managed to squeeze in "North & South", which also spanned two tapes and has no disk version.

Imagine back in the day, to set up a battle, load the battle scenario, and then be over in 5 seconds because the enemy decides to retire rather than fight. Then load the map again... it could be maddening sometimes.

There was a little bug in my buzzer emulation that would occasionally cause a gap in the sound buffer if frame cpu cycles went over a few for that frame, this made an obvious and annoying pop in the awesome Alter Ego title music (and in some other games too, but it was less evident).  Anyways; now it's history.

Did anyone check out my stereoizer for Nes yet?  Put on headphones and try the video here (please): https://neo-source.com/index.php?topic=2487.msg30631#msg30631

I have an idea, I want to make several audio plug-ins for FB Neo UI which can be selected, like: delay/reverb/stereoizer/Bass Boost.  I'm testing the idea with just the NES driver for now.

Could you go through the list one more time and remove those we've already got (at a quick glance, I distinctly remember adding Steg and Silent Shadow) and game collections (e.g. Superstar Seymour is just a pack of all Seymour games).

Added the games from Wilowar's plus-sized list, barring:
Olli & Lissa 3
Seymour at the Movies

I couldn't confirm that the 128k versions of those two are any different from the 48k versions.

I also had to skip Alien Girl, since I don't have the official TAP to verify the checksum. Had to go with the free 48k demo.

Threw in:
Rogue Trooper
Star Paws
Super Scramble Simulator

The Star Paws one is more for the tunes than the gameplay, admittedly.

Hello FBNeo people,

If you are adding SF2Mix to FBNeo use the sf2ce driver by renaming it to sf2mix.zip and in the files change all "s92" to "smx"

Example: s92_21a.6f -> smx_21a.6f

Is "Block Out" for the NES worthy of adding?

From Wikipedia:

Quote

Despite the other known console ports of Blockout, there were also two for NES: the first is an official unreleased prototype developed in 1990 by Technos Japan Corp. under the name "Block Out", while the second is an unauthorized clone programmed by Hwang Shinwei and published by both himself and RCM Group in 1989/1990 (titled 3D Block).

Ok, it is getting out of hand, so i'll repeat some rules that have been said many times already :
- only request support for games you intend to play
- check if those games aren't supported already

Next time i see a request for several dozens of games, including alts and already supported games, the requester will be lucky if i only delete his request. All devs are getting sick of this, that was my last warning.

@joaquim2020 games added, half of those games were already supported actually, and no we won't add the alts.

The "Anime colors" has a negative review, although I like it. You need ski goggles to play in some of the arenas, but still is closer to the look of the TV series. On the oher hand, the Donus patch has no negative revierws, is less extreme and, if that helps, you have already included some of his other Genesis patches.

So if I had to choose I'd go with the Donus patch.

Any other opinions? Any DBZ fans on the board?

The truth is that this game would need an arrangement of colors, if that is the one you would play it would be a matter of adding it, I would not want to add games that will never be played

Then I'd add the Donus patch. And if you don't like the colors on other Genesis games check out his other patches, he's done a lot of good.

EDIT: I got it wrong, it's actually the Donus patch the one in which some stages are too bright. Still, that's better than the released version, so yes, please add his patch and ignore the other one.

Is this worth adding?

X-Men (Mega Drive) - Ultimate X-Men hack (http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5639/)

It says it makes the game easier and "corrects a few design choices of the original game". It does not specify if it solves one annoying thing of this game, after reaching a certain point the player is asked to "lightly press the reset button". If done incorrectly, the game fully restarts and the progress is lost.

EDIT: Looks like its fixed. From the readme:

*Computer automatically resets when destroyed, reset button no longer needed. (Mojo's Crunch)

Yanga+ - an updated version of a puzzler first released as an entry into Yandex Retro Games Battle 2019. The updated version comes in English, has more levels, AY music, passwords, and some minor tweaks. Can be downloaded here: https://serdjuk.itch.io/yanga

Also updated the entry for HELL YEAH!, since the author has updated the game (e.g. the platforms now carry you with them, woo!). Can be downloaded here: https://zx.preshaudio.co.uk/hell-yeah/

Added a bunch of new ZX Spectrum games, among which - an improved and extended version of the original Dizzy.

AntEater - a single-screen arcade involving navigating your tongue around an underground ant colony.

The Dark: Lost Pages - starts off as a side-scrolling stab-a-tron not unlike Zosya's own recent Valley of Rains, then turns into an elaborate first-person shooter.

Dizzy 1 Extended - makes the original game smoother, fixes bugs and unintended skips, adds 16 more screens, new items, etc.

Lost Cavern - an AGD platformer with questionable hitboxes. Somewhat tough, but has a separate easy version.

Ninja Poison - you play as a ninja who's constantly dying from poisoning.

Organic Matter - a game made from a made-up description to a non-existent ZX Speccy game in an old Russian guidebook. Has a trailer made for it, voiced by the guy who did video game reviews on the telly in the 90s. The game itself? A platformer where you go around shooting stuff, making flowers bloom (?), spreading green contamination everywhere you go (?). The usual.

If you're documenting these 'new releases' that MAME doesn't seem interested in, can you try to keep the older releases of them as clones (so if a 1.2 comes out, make the 1.1 a clone) it could be useful in the future.

For arcade sets this has always been done (clones = older revisions) but for this modern development the culture seems to be to try and erase the clones entirely, which is worrysome - tracking the development is something people will want to study some years from now.

Gab75,
I love playing something unique and new between working on code :)
Thank you and best regards,

If you're documenting these 'new releases' that MAME doesn't seem interested in, can you try to keep the older releases of them as clones (so if a 1.2 comes out, make the 1.1 a clone) it could be useful in the future.

Thanks for the tip, Haze! :)
Maybe the best choice is proceed as follows:
- if the new version is only a bug fixes, the new version will replace the old version;
- if the new version has changes in levels/gameplay or it adds new options/features, both will be kept.

- if the new version is only a bug fixes, the new version will replace the old version;
- if the new version has changes in levels/gameplay or it adds new options/features, both will be kept.

If it costs you nothing to keep an older version preserved, I'd suggest keeping all the older versions.

Not all bugfixes are 'positive' some end up introducing other issues, sometimes old playthoughs of a game depend on a bug, and end up looking 'impossible' later.

I'll share a little story...

A few years back I was working on a mobile game, it had a score / time attack mode with replays, it would upload players scores and their runs to a server, so that they could be viewed by anybody else.

We got the occasional report of the game crashing mid-run, unfortunately as crashing was fatal, we didn't get the run files for any game that crashed, so the bug sat there for about a year unfixed, we weren't even sure if it was just a hardware bug on some devices.

Eventually we manged to get a solid reproduction.  There was some bad code in our game that would trash the state of other objects in memory in a predictable way.  If it happened to corrupt the wrong data (pointers to certain things) the game would crash.  If it instead happened to corrupt other things (number of enemies left to spawn etc.) the game would continue, seemingly as normal.

We fixed the bug.

Most of the top 20 high score replays that had been uploaded to the servers and shared stopped working.

Those high score replays just happened to be triggering the bug in a way that was changing the behavior of the game (causing less enemies to spawn) thus allowing the players to complete the game more quickly and obtain higher bonus points.  The top replays were all relying on a bug in our game code corrupting the game state.

As the replays no longer worked, and the top scores were technically not valid, we ended up deleting them.  This caused massive fallout with the player community, accusations of us censoring scores, deleting scores of players for no reason in order to try and make 'our friends' appear higher up etc.  Even accusations that we hadn't fixed a bug in our code, but introduced one and were trying to hide that by deleting the replays.

Unfortunately with these closed platforms you can't offer old versions of your software easily. There was no way to restore those replays, that depended on a buggy version of the game, to working state, they were literally 'impossible scores' on the fixed version of the game.  People wanted the old version, and the old scores back, that didn't happen, the community abandoned the game.

With an emulator, and a database of versions, you can easily offer all released versions, and let the user pick.

So yeah, if something can be archived, I'd highly recommend archiving it, because you just never know, even obvious bug fixes, for game-crashing bugs, can sometimes have unexpected side-effects if people were relying on those bugs.

Haze, it sounds like those people were mad that their time and efforts spent exploiting game glitches were wasted, making them miss an older inferior version of the game. Do we really want to cater to such people when no money is involved? Keeping older versions has a cost: it's clutter in the code base, is it not? We might even run out of ROM names for arcade games as they are short filenames (but I guess it's not a hard limit and it could be ignored). Anyway, I don't think it's worth it, but then again, I'm not an FBN contributor.

... Keeping older versions has a cost: it's clutter in the code base, is it not? ...

You centered one of the main issues: the database gets slower with every added game, so getting rid of old buggy versions and replacing with new versions certainly helps (often with homebrew games, the new versions are only bug fixes and they're always better than the older versions).

Indeed, and i wouldn't be happy if FBNeo ended up weighing several hundreds MBs because of this.
I'm not against keeping older romset versions, but i wouldn't make it systematic if it's not a user request. I believe there are better projects than FBNeo for game preservation.

I'm against keeping old HB game versions around as well unless there is something "special" about the previous version.  If, at a later time we find that a previous version has something special about it - or someone requests it, we can re-add it.

Well I find those responses to be highly disappointing.

As emulation devs, we have to bear some responsibility for seeing that these things aren't lost / forgotten, but it seems wherever I go, or try to encourage support for preserving them, I'm just met with attitudes that want to destroy current history instead.

This is going to be a real mess (impossible) to fix later down the line, once people start to realise this is every bit as much of our history as the various Street Fighter 2 revisions etc.

I consider my duty done in trying to encourage a more positive outlook for these things at least, but I did think here of all places might be a little more receptive to the idea of not letting these things be lost, especially as I can't do anything about a lot of them within MAME either due to other policies (not including anything the author puts a price on, even if that price is 'free')

Cheers for keeping the Speccy love going. Some genuinely good discoveries for me in there, between the oldies like the Charm and Kinetik (and I think my brain erased the painful memory of what it used to know as LED Storm), and the new stuff like the impressive port of King's Valley.

@Wilowar
I've added Action Force. I also threw in a neat Among Us-themed homebrew adventure (using the TAPs available here: http://www.rastersoft.com/programas/monjas.html) and a couple more Yogi games.

Hi, just want to know if the game "Turmoil" from Bug-Byte Software could be added to either MSX library, or Spectrum one.

There is already a "Turmoil" in the MSX library, but is a clone of an earlier Atari 2600 game from 20th Century, not related to the Bug-Byte one.

Y'day I finally fixed my ds3 controller (original one from 2014!) and spent last night playing all the new homebrews.
Original ds3 controlers are almost indestructable.  Though, over time the little rubber spacer that connects the flat-flex to the pcb loses it's rubberyness and gets flat, and pressing on the left thumbstick will cause random button-presses to register - as it slightly pushes the pcb away from the flat-flex, due to the active-low nature of the circuit.  A super simple fix involves cutting a business-card into a little rectangle the exact size of the rubber spacer, and placing it underneath it & carefully screwing everything back together.  For the last couple weeks, I was worried the thing had become unfixable, and luckily I was wrong. :)  If this thing has 9 lives like a cat, it has exactly 7 left at this point.

For those that didn't notice, Navabarrone on Megadrive is actually a remake of the arcade game Navarone, one of Namco's super early games from 1980, running on an 8080 processor.  Similar HW released a year later runs the amazing classic "Warp & Warp".

Gab75 has been doing an awesome job keeping the homebrew stuff up to date and alive in fbneo, big thanks buddy :)

bye for now,

Hi friends, I have a question, FBN can emulate consoles like genesis, nes, etc; Why the roms should be used from a specific romset?

If I wanted to play for example a hack of any sonic with extension * .md, * .gen, * .bin, how can I use it in FBN without it being a specific request?

Greetings.

It can't be done, but we can add any game/hack to it.

Wow , I remember having seen this game (the original) mentined in some "Worst Spectrum games" list some time ago  :biggrin:

It was supposedly released deliberately broken and you couldn't even move your character unless you use a specific poke  :p

Anyway , the passion and skill in the speccy scene never fails to amaze :)

I knew the C64 version of Sqij, the game isn't exactly the best shoot'em up I've ever seen, but the ZX Spectrum version puts it to "shame" !  :biggrin: Fortunately the remake version is definitely better than the original (the gameplay is closer to C64 version) ... ;)

I'm sorry, but this game uses the TRD format... a disk operating system implemented as storage interface in Pentagon and Scorpion computers (russian improved clones of ZX Spectrum). FBN doesn't support these machines and the related storage system!

emulating the pentigon128+disk & everything needed for tr-dos would take 3 solid weeks at about 4-6h a day.  It's a good guesstimate; I actually looked into it.  Don't get me wrong, I do like big projects, this one just doesn't interest me enough.

Thank you! Today I saw this other one by the same author:

Converts SF2: Special Champion Edition into The World Warrior.

EDIT: And this could be worth adding as well, it's a hack that recreates a pirate Mario Bros game, Super Bros. 8.

New hack Adamantium Redux reduces difficulty level for Wolverine: Adamantium Rage (Mega Drive). The reviewers agree it's one tough game, so this should be a no brainer to add to the Genesis roster.

Hey Gab. I can't get the game to work here, but this is the first time I try to run a Mega Drive game with FBN.
I bought the game and received 2 ROMs that have a one-byte difference for some reason, and I'm not sure which one is correct. I tried both in FBN (renaming it to "md_asteborg.<ext>", with .bin extension, .md extension, zipped or not), and nothing works, FBN is not happy with the ROM.

Any idea? Thanks.

In Demons of Asteborg, I got such a garbage screen after reloading a save state taken on the title screen.
Attaching all of the game-specific files.

To reproduce: load the save state, then go to the game settings.

Edit: to clarify, basically, just load a save state from a different context, and the game will glitch.
Example: load a title save from the startup logo, or load an in-stage save from the startup logo or from the title screen, and so on. It's like the whole RAM is not fully reloaded when loading a save state, so save states will only work properly if the game already has all the needed stuff in the RAM.

I'm glad you liked this addition (probably the novel "El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha" is known all over the world)...  yes, the game was only released in Spanish language.

Oh, yes, it is wide known. It surprised me that some people in reddit have become fans of the novel. I still have to read it, like many classics such as "The Count of Monte Cristo".

"Don Quijote" the text adventure was made by AD, a sub-team from Dinamic that especialized in text adventures. Pretty much all they did is worth adding at some point.

Hello, I'm curious about the status of support for some games only included as demo and not full version (i.e. the three Search For The Stolen Crown Jewels on Colecovision or Alien Girl on ZX Spectrum) whereas a full version exists for each of these games.

What is the reasoning behind it ?

It doesn't seem it's commercial availability as some other and pretty recent games are included in their full version like Demons of Astebord on Megadrive ?

This game is more a raw conversion (from Amstrad CPC version) than a "remake"... in any case, now the related support is on the roster! ;)

I was a happy C64 user (during my childhood), but I was intrigued from the Amstrad CPC, especially for the better color palette (27 colors instead of 16)... ;)

A cool machine too. In other boards I've become tired of "my 8-bit computer was better than yours" threads. The thing is that every machine seems to be better than the rest in something.

- The Amstrad CPC has a better palette than the ZX Spectrum, and as much games available.
- But the Spectrum has clearer graphics, because they use a higher resolution.
- The C64 has faster graphics and better sound than these two, but had less software available in Europe.
- The MSX had also good graphics and sound, but most of the available games were poor Spectrum conversions. Cart games were a different matter entirely, but are hard to find and pricey.

I didn't know any C64 users in the 1980s, so it was kind of a surprise when I first started emulating the computer. At first I was appalled at the muted colors and the somehow chunky sprites, but with time I've learned to like the machine. The fact that the games never resemble the rest of their 8-bit versions, the cool musics, or that classics like "Turrican" originated on this machine. The exclusive games also help. Wish I could hav played "Test Drive" or "Maniac Mansion" on my CPC.

Luckily in 2014 I found fbneo (it was called something else back then), it's been very usefull to help save me from the PTSD caused by the 2011-2013 mission....

The "home computer war" was a classic (like the console war)... almost all users claimed that own computer was better than others!  :p Now, we can "see" the matter with more objectivity! :)

C64 games I used to like:
Creatures 1, 2 (one is platformer, the other is a puzzler)
Rainbow Islands
It's Magic 1, 2
X-Out
Ghouls 'n Ghosts - the music of this game is very epic, and the ending music of this game inspired me to get very good at g&g/gh&g
It takes a special type of insanity to get good at the C64 ghouls n ghosts especially with the lack of a second firebutton.  Imagine having to shoot upwards when up also jumps?  ...  Red Arremers were tough on the c64.

Today though, I'll recommend the PCE SuperGrafx version of Ghouls 'n Ghosts (Dai Makaimura / sgx_daimakai)

Hi Neville,
I took a look to Cozumel and Chichen Itza... it's not a big problem add both games, but I noticed a potential issue with "Cozumel". Usually to play the part 2 in Adventuras AD games it's enough digit the right password, but in this case a save file is required (made when you finish the part 1 of the game), this could be a problem in the FBN emulation.

There's a new English patch for Fushigi no Yume no Alice (Japan) for the PC Engine, in case it's worth adding. It may sound like a passive-aggressive request, but I don't actually know the game. At all. So I can't tell if an English translation is necessary to make it playable for westerners.

Patch here. (http://www.romhacking.net/translations/6353/)

I agree... also in the 16 bit overview! I loved the Amiga version... ;)

For me the 16 bit versions are not as good. They have great graphics, but somehow the playability falls a bit behind their 8 bit counterparts. IMHO Amstrad CPC and NES / Famicom are the best ports.

Oh, and the Legend of Zelda and Zelda II Redux hacks got updated recently. I can't remember if they were added to the NES roster, but if they weren't this might be the best chance to do it.

The Legend of Zelda Redux Hack (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5752/)

Zelda II Redux Hack (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5440/)

They both pack a ton of bugfixes and enhancements, but they retain the playability and level layout of the original games.

You know I normally leave here links of amateur patches for your consideration. This time is different. I can't force any of you to include this particular patch int the Genesis / Mega Drive roster...

So instead, I'll shamelessly beg that you try it, then decide if it's not a huge improvement over the regular (meh) Genesis port of Mortal Kombat. Meanwhile, I'll keep vowing until my back hurts, and if that's not enough I'll start chanting "I'm not worthy!" until my vocal chords give up. This patch is THAT good.

yeah I agree,

"kraut buster" und "gunlord" on fbn would be a highlight, although not likely to see any soon.
i'm following the two since 2020 and the sales and market policy of ngdev is a mystery for me
constantly sold out as the rest of their nsw stuff, but not even mentioned in their shop??
it seems that they don't want to sell it (anymore?, mvs 99 copies, aes 165 copies), never
saw a sales strategy like this, ok limited editions exist for many games, but solely and
exclusively limited. no edition for ordinary people and non millionaire?
therefore resellers demand outrageous prices, none <1000eur.
they seem so busy that they don't even have time to update their webpage:
...
Coming 2018 for NEO?GEO MVS & 2019 for AES

Pre-order now at www.ngdevdirect.com
Official game page: www.kraut-buster.com
...
pre-order after 2 years since release or do they mean the next bundle of cartridges?

no matter, a rom dump seems hardly to appear in the net, someone told me that
ngdev knows every customer by name and every cartridge has a unique id in the code
thus they can  prosecute one if a dump appears in the net...

so keep dreaming

Also, once programmers learn how to get rid of colour clash the ZX is a very nice machine. And this comes from a guy who owned its main competitor, the Amstrad CPC. I still have mock arguments online with Spectrum users who complain pof the CPC "blockiness".

EDIT: Two new translation patches that could make their way into their respective rosters:

Nekketsu Kakutou Densetsu (Japan) for the NES. (http://www.romhacking.net/translations/6407/)

Dragon Egg! (Japan) for the PC Engine. (http://www.romhacking.net/translations/6405/)

And I think this other one went unnoticed:

Wonder Momo (Japan) for the PC Engine. (http://www.romhacking.net/translations/6298/)

Had never heard of "Speccy Bros.", but always loved "Snow Bros." since the times I played it at the arcades.

Obviously the arcade version is completely a different story. In any case the ZX version is decent after all, but, to be honest, it's not comparable with the other home versions (Megadrive and NES)...  :wink:

Post by: Neville on January 10, 2022, 03:55:00 PM
Oh, I didn't expect it to be a perfect port or to be as striking as the arcade. But if the playability is still there, It's going to occupy too much of my time. I already got very addicted to the GB port in the 90s.

EDIT: It's a decent enough port. It could use smoother movements and I wonder if it has all the stages. It's for 48k machines so I guess not. But the playability is still there, and they even bothered with the first boss:

Indeed, considering the limitation of only 2 colors for each 8x8px block, the game looks very colorful... but that is exactly why the "smoother movements" aren't possible: all characters/objects movements are bound with steps of "8x8px blocks".

I see. I thought it was because it's designed to fit into 48k. Anyway, part of retrogaming is seeing how they managed to do great games in spite of all the absurd limitations of those systems.

I can't even tell if Sabrina was known outside of Italy and Spain, or if she got paid anything in royalties for the game.

For those who don't know what the hell I'm talking about, Sabrina was a one hit wonder from the 80s, and also a member of the same club as Danuta or Samantha Fox.

EDIT: I have a Spectrum request... would it be possible to add "Misterio del Nilo / Mystery of the Nile"?

(https://i.imgur.com/eAp79Xg.png)

(https://i.imgur.com/kcts6TD.png)

It's an arcade / adventure in several parts. In each screen you need to control one to three characters and kill all enemies. Non-controlled characters have some rudimentary AI.

A real mediterranean sex symbol during the late 80s and the 90s!  :cool:

I personally have always had a soft spot for Lorna, even though the gameplay wasn't as much of a second fiddle in that one as more of a third guy in the back row who coughs during the whole thing.

Aw, yes, Lorna. That was a comicbook adaptation, but it does fit the genre of large breasts. I think it's a so-so game, but the 16 bit versions are actually pretty good.

I was wondering... could you add the 128k version of "Angel Nieto"?

When you load the 48k version it says the 128k is on the other side of the tape, but I'm not sure if I've ever seen it.

The ZX Spectrum +2A/+3 (compared with ZX Spectrum 128K) have the same total RAM, but with a different architecture: 4 chips of 32 kbytes each (64 kbit x 4) instead of 16 chips of 8 kbytes each (64 kbit x 1). This causes a difference in the memory contention and, in some cases, compatibility issues between Sinclair and Amstrad systems.

Some time ago I mentioned that the "redux" hacks for Legend of Zelda and Zelda II for the NES had been updated. Now I bring back the topic because I think they should be added to the NES roster. They have plenty of enhancements and even the purists seem to like them. I don't care about the optional patches they include, that should make things easier for the FBN team.

You mean "Beachead", right? I only got to the second or third stage. But it was pretty cool considering how simple the graphics / gameplay were.

This causes a difference in the memory contention and, in some cases, compatibility issues between Sinclair and Amstrad systems.

After adding +2a emulation to FBNeo for a few games a week or 2 ago, some things about it I'd like to share:
The Speccy 128k has 128k of ram, but it can't map all of it at once, it has to bank in 16k chunks of ram in order to use them.  The +2A / +3 has the feature to unmap the bios roms and map the ram in their place, allowing the cpu/program to access 2 more 16k banks of ram concurrently than the standard 128k can.
It's this feature that the +2a/+3 only games use which won't work on a standard 128K.

As far as I know, Druid is more a Gauntlet-style game than a real RPG... in any case, the only noticeable variation (I had only a quick look) seems to be in the title screen... are there other significant differences?

Today I found out about two hacks for the MD version of "Ys III: Wanderers from Ys". I'm mentioning them for your consideration, I'm not sure they deserve to be included.

Ys III Renewal (http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/6175/) promises a revised English script and graphical re-touches inspired by the X68000 version.

And Ys III Rebalanced (http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/6684/) is "one of those" patches that basically tones down the game's difficulty to appeal to more casual players. I know the board doesn't like these kind of patches much, and moreover I haven't played "Ys III" much (a side-scrolling RPG? Bleh), so I don't know if the patch is really needed or not.

Anyway, opinions are welcome.

Now NES/Famicom Animal Clipper works properly... a big thanks to dink for fixing it! :)

PS: the game has a bug, if the board completely empties (no more interchangeable pieces, "stalemate") the music crashes. The bug isn't an emulation issue, but a bug in the original game code and only effect the music.

I've always been fond of "Narco Police". With its pseudo-3D shootouts it plays like an ancestor of today's FPS. A pity they had to complicate things by having the player enter instructions on computer terminals. You'll need the manual if you want to get anywhere.

It needs a different game. Looks like a small Spanish studio got their hands on the license and they gave us an "Operation Wolf" clone. Guess Ocean didn't think of grabbing this one.

And there's a C64 game of the A-Team, but it a different game by a different company. Check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKodedZIZ_I

Can't say which one is better than the other.

Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Neville on May 24, 2022, 02:58:41 PM
The C64 was really marginalised in Spain at the time. Many software house didn't bother to program for the C64 or outsourced those versions of their games to another company. Surely this explains why there's a different game for the C64. Someone noticed there wasn't a proper C64 "A-Team" game and published their own rubish.

Being European, I was very surprised when I found out the C64 was such a success in the USA.

Just learned a few NES games won't play their sound samples correctly, it has to be with something called bit-reversal. Luckily (or not luckily for FBN developers), there a bunch of patches that aim to fix those games.

Here they are. (https://www.romhacking.net/community/4779/)

EDIT: Mortal Kombat Arcade Edition Enhanced (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/6558/) for the MD also got updated to v1.4.

Post by: dink on June 02, 2022, 11:12:26 AM
IMO the proper way to do this would be to add the function to the emulator as a dip option to reverse the dmc-channel bits.
..instead of adding a bunch of patches/new romsets.  A lot of emulators are doing this now-adays :)

Let's see what Gab75 thinks?  Should we have dip-option or the hacks?

I'm leaning towards the first option: "a dip option to reverse the dmc-channel bits".
In my humble opinion, when possible, it's better emulate/use the original ROM images and not the patched/hacked versions... :)

Hi Voljega,
Sydney Hunter and Vanguard use a Megacart (128Kbytes with a multiplexer logic), but in both cases the Super Game Module isn't required to work, differently Jawbreaker I & II (CollectorVision edition) requires a SGM installed to work...

A couple NES patches that I think are worth adding:

1) Ultimate Super Mario Brothers 2. This is a bugfix / graphics restoration for the FDS version of the game.

Grab it here (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/7194/). NOTE: I think the listed CRC32 for the ROM is wrong. I haven't to tested the patch with other versions yet.

2) Spanish translation for Digital Devil Monogatari: Megami Tensei II, NES version. Based on the Englist patch by Stardust Crusaders.

Grab it here. (https://www.romhacking.net/translations/6668/)

I think these new Genesis / Mega Drive hacks are worth adding to its roster:

(https://i.imgur.com/HGRfOSr.png)

Road Rash Improvement (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/7229/)

Road Rash 2 Improvement (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/7159/)

Road Rash 3 Improvement (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/7078/)

They are hacks by the same author, Ti, and they add MP3 music support (which should be irrelevant to us), a few bugfixes and FPS improvement, which is IMHO the most interesting feature.

I remember seeing Red Heat on C64 at a friend's house , and the panoramic view with monotonous fighting

Reminded me a inferior version of Kung-fu on NES , I like the movie but the game was passable at best

And when you squat to make a low punch? the enemies come and stand by you and it looked like as if  :wink: :biggrin:

"Red Heat" was awful and had very little play value. Ocean could do much better.

I got it on a compilation alongside my brand new CPC as a child when my parents bought it for me.
It was the first game I launched on it I think (I had played CPC at my cousin's before though) and my father asked to give it a try.
He tried it once for 2 minutes, put the joystick down and I think it was the only time in his entire life he played a video game.
Imagine that, having only "Red Heat" as an experience of the whole medium  :biggrin:

Another Genesis / Mega Drive hack worth mentioning, Mega Man World Fixer Upper (https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/7257/):

(https://i.imgur.com/rXkdWaU.png) (https://i.imgur.com/C5z9Dk5.png)

Adds a few tweaks to the best (and only) official Mega Man game for the system:

- Enemy invulnerability time has been all but eliminated.  This means that enemies can take damage more frequently and reliably.  No more ?missed? shots!

- The default weapon (the Buster) has been sped up to match its 8-bit counterpart.  Watch those lemons fly!

- The default weapon and some boss weapons can be fired more rapidly!  Hammer that ?fire? button and launch waves of projectiles!

- Rockman pulls his Buster back a little sooner after firing!  This? only affects a handful of weapons and the change isn?t that big, but hey!  It might help!

@Neville: I patched the files (Mega Man - The Wily Wars (Europe): DCF6E8B2 and Mega Man - The Wily Wars (Retro-bit): 831020B) to add the related support, but, in both cases, I noticed a controller "fatal bug". In few words, during the menu the controller inputs work fine, but during the gameplay they doesn't work...
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Neville on November 07, 2022, 04:41:09 AM
I chose to patch the (USA) (Genesis Mini) version, asuming it would be the most up to date. It seems to work fine under Fusion and Mednafen, but it hangs while loading under BlastEm.

(https://i.imgur.com/EkYveZP.png)

If you think the patch is buggy or incomplete it may be better to wait until it's updated again.

The Fixer Upper patch worked fine for me, on the original Euro ROM. I also combined it with other patches (FBN can't do that easily, right? It'd need an entry for each patch combination).

I tried with japan version and mini version (correct CRCs: 85C956EF and 0CD405DB)... the outcome of patched files: black screen at start-up in both cases (tested with KEGA Fusion and latest build of FBN)...
Title: Re: Game Consoles (Gab75 adds and more...)
Post by: Neville on November 08, 2022, 04:21:08 AM
Weird. The black screen at startup could be caused by wrong checksum, which can be solved with this utility (https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/342/). Although I didn't need to use it.

However, considering the problems this hack is giving you I think it's better to wait for next version.
