Update for those who are curious: After switching to a (somewhat crappy) Tac-2, the game LA Swat now runs properly on my 130XE. Either I am pushing the wrong directions or there is some weird crosstalk in the cable to my Starplex Deluxe Video Controller that causes the game to go amok. I managed to debug some of it in Atari800win and found the code where the joystick input is read and temporarily stored but didn't have time to analyse what the game does with the input later.

Not a fan of Gridrunner. If I'm reading the score right, I think I have 18,570.


It's a bit insane but there is some skill to it! Though I played for an hour today and didn't pass level 5 ?

SWAT was never a game that held the attention, you always wanted it to be better but turns out it's a good fun one for HSC play. Think I reached level 6 once before not sure, will be interesting to see if anything else happens. Lots of bugs usually player missile graphics but I pretend they are wayward bits of the rioters e.g. scalp ! I did have an amusing one where I got blown up and clubbed to death at the same time and when it switched to the 2nd guy he was auto clubbed too!

Slightly better on SWAT. Had I not killed the hostage twice it would have been a lot better. 



Another bug sometimes you hit the hostage right afer shooting the hoodlum and still get the bonus but it shows -1000 so I guess you lose that at the same time :ponder:

Had a lot of time running the grid, but didn't improve. Made it to level 8. Need to improve "survival mode" for the end of levels. Wonder if level 5 is so hard due to number of adversaries and then in 6 it reduces again, seem to get past 6 and often 7 if I do somehow survive 5 :ponder:


The Top Secret Round 9 Poll is OPEN!!

Votes please EVERYONE :jango:
