Moon Patrol Hack for Sound


Recommended Posts

Likely the game uses an engine that would be similar in function to VBXE - ie a regular VBlank call that allows music + sound processing on an ongoing basis. On demand sound effects usually initiated by a seperate call with parameter/s.

If you want to record sound you can selectively disable voices in Altirra. From a quick look it seems like Moon Patrol uses Voice 2 for the sound effects though it's possible music borrows it as well and effects might occasionally use others.

Got Altirra working on my OS X.11 Mac using wine bottler.


Managed to turn off the tracks. Nice!


Now if I can just get an image to run past check point A and figure out how to mimic joystick controls and we'll be all set. Altirra is quite nice. Never had a reason to set this up before now.

Ok three questions:


1) Why is Moon Patrol playing on auto play? The buggy is jumping over craters by itself.

2) Why is Moon Patrol only getting to level A and restarting?

3) How can I use some keyboard control to play the game?


(And I figured this out enough for effect. Basically like shift 2 to turn off auto play mode. Once in manual play mode it gets past level A. Select keyboard entry from the pull down menus.)


(Cool emulator!)
