+therealbountybob Posted April 26 Share Posted April 26 (edited) copied this from last time we played... note it's a handicapped round (see below) *JOUST* Game Settings Joust is a good one for a bit of handicapping so here goes: former HSC champs play on Advanced, everyone else play on Skilled (default) or Advanced if you are one of the better players or want a greater challenge, anyone who is new to the game or can't get past a few screens then play on Novice Emulator Users All games must be played at normal speed you have the choice of NTSC or PAL system. Set "overscan" to normal so the screen looks like the screenshot below and you cannot see into the margins (altirra view overscan mode). Joust does not show the high score, so after your go wait for the demo mode to start and you will see the last score(s). Joust is a great game flap around, kill the birds, collect the eggs, lots of fun to be had. The birds: Red = Bounder Grey = Hunter Blue = Shadow Lord Lance the pterodactyl when he opens his beak though it's "damn risky" and worth a measly 1,000 points. You can kill him with his beak closed and even kill him by hitting him from behind. Basically your lance tip has to be at the exact point of the beak, or his tail.

RT had a great idea - post scores too, the lowest one will count in a separate table so the incentive is to help your fellow player! Fun Challenge Most pterry's killed!

Bonus Game WING WARS Have been trying to get this played here for some time, so let's see if we can figure it out?! https://a8.fandal.cz/detail.php?files_id=3413 http://www.atarimania.com/game-atari-400-800-xl-xe-imagic-1-2-3_1235.html 19 hours ago, Deteacher said: Instructions (sort of) for Wing War. From what I've figured out so far: 1. Press the fire button to flap and fly. 2. Press down + fire to shoot. Not the best control scheme, but with only one button, I suppose it's the best they could come up with at the time. 3. Kill an enemy and it turns into a gem/crystal/whatever. Pick it up and return it to the first screen to gain some health. Wash, rinse, repeat...I guess. 11 hours ago, graywest said: I haven't played this version of Wing War, but I think it started as a 2600 game (that Imagic only released in Europe). The 2600 instructions might help a little, but I'm not sure how much of a difference there is between the ports: https://atariage.com/manual_page.php?SystemID=2600&SoftwareLabelID=763&ItemTypeID=¤tPage=0&maxPages=4 Round ends Weds 10th May 8pm UK time Game on! trbb p.s. if anyone wants to write something for Pro(c) Atari Magazine please get in touch.
