RevEng Posted December 30, 2020 Share Posted December 30, 2020 As part of some troubleshooting, I happened to run One On One in a7800 without a bios, and noticed that the title screen was different. Usually the game starts with Larry Bird shooting a free throw, shortly after which the options screen appears. But if the bios is skipped and the cart is executed immediately, the title screen instead features a continuous gameplay attract mode, which gives you time to read the scrolling message at the bottom and to hear the entirety of the title music, until you press the fire button to get to the game menu. I also noticed that the A8 version is identical in behaviour to the 7800 bios-skip behaviour. I have little doubt that the 7800 version free-throw beginning was a bug that either nobody noticed until the carts were made, or that nobody cared enough about to track down. I added a memory cleanup routine to the beginning of the rom, which fixes the bug. I also added a proper 2-button setup, since the game does a half-assed one.
