intvnut Posted September 23, 2012 Share Posted September 23, 2012 I put a couple files up on Google Docs that might help people trying to get binaries working with jzIntv. Instructions: If the file's name has any spaces, consider removing the spaces. jzIntv has no problems with spaces in filenames, but the same can't be said of all the other software in the system. If the binary file is an odd number of bytes, it's probably a .ROM file. (Exception: If it's a multiple of 4096 plus one byte, it's a .BIN file that came from a particular website that added a mystery byte to their ROM images.) Rename to with the extension .ROM and try the file. If it works, stop there. If not, let's try it as a .BIN, and rename the file's extension to ".bin" [*]Look up the game title in the config list spreadsheet here: Intellivision Game Memory Maps Make a note of the memory map number in the rightmost column. [*]Copy the corresponding configuration file from this set of generic configurations to the same name as the game, only with .cfg as the extension. Example: You're trying to get diner.bin to work. Looking at the file size, it's 32768 bytes, so it's a .BIN file. Looking it up in the spreadsheet, you see it takes memory map #2. So, copy "2.cfg" from the ZIP file to "diner.cfg" et voila! It should start working. Example 2: You're trying to get diner.bin to work, but its file size 32829. That's most likely a .ROM file someone had renamed .BIN. Rename it to .ROM and it should start working. 5 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
