Thanks, Guys :)



If I hit the reset button the game doesn't start playing the intro music again, it just keeps playing the normal sounds.

Thank you - Found it. :) It was doing that if another sound was playing (if it was quiet you would hear the intro music again). I've fixed that. RC4 below.


@CrudOMatic: I used 320B mode, with Kangaroo off (Transparency on). I actually have the vertical resolution at 216, which is 40 vertical pixels (5 zones of 8 pixels each) shy of the arcade. I did away with the zones just above and below the score zone, the 'credit' zone at the bottom, and an extra zone at he bottom and extra zone at the top to make it fit. As far as the colors, With 320B/Kangaroo-off mode, you have two palettes with two colors each (the third color is not used). I used a few DLIs to change them mid-screen at specific places.


@rmaerz: I meant to explain the 'zone' thing to you earlier (but forgot) :( The explanation is above for CrudOMatic. Each 'zone' is 8 vertical pixels in this case (the size of he font).


@Ozma Wars: Noted (thank you)... But keep in mind, if you buy Colecovision stuff, you might be more interested in Opcode's version that he is working on. He is able to use actual arcade code in his so they are identical.

-added the '!' to the 'RIGHT ON' message

Please note that you cannot press 'RESET' while the ship is being introduced.

The sound effects for the bullets just don't sound like a spaceship firing. It sounds more like Carnival.

When was the last time you heard an actual spaceship firing? :P I was trying to emulate the odd sound used in the arcade ... I don't think even the Pokey can pull that one off. That being said, I will see if I can refine it.


Maybe nitpicking or paying attention to detail: when you dock successfully, there is an exclamation missing i.e. "Right On!"

I will find space for the exclamation point.
