couldn't see a thread for arcade work..

anyway, here are some shots of Ocean to Ocean, a rare Deco Cassette dumped by Joseph and the Game Preservation Society.

the submission needed a little work because the wrong decryption line was provided

There are 2 versions, the US version shows 'For Amusement Only' has a 'skill stop' feature and seems to play for points only.


The Japan version shows the DECO copyright, doesn't appear to have a skill stop feature, and seems to be a very basic Medal (payout) game


of all the Deco Cassette games to keep around this one probably surprises me most, so I guess we should be glad that it's preserved, even if there's really nothing worth mentioning about it.

Thanks so much for taking the trouble of sorting out the BIOS muddle in the Cassette System driver. Now if only someone (well, possibly I) would put in the effort to fix various nontrivial flaws in the graphics...

A PCB video of the DECO test tape would help a lot, though that's probably too much to ask for at this point.

Sandro Ronco's improved a few more things with the ARM6 and the Acorn Archimedes, which gets us some action out of aristmk5 at last:

His ARM fix apparently fixed Acorn Archimedes Desktop booting too, which is a nice side effect:

Yeah, Archimedes desktop booting was shown at the end of the old WIP thread. We need to get the FDD/HDD going now and softlist it smile

It's great to see this! - The aristmk5 only needs the Meters, Logic Door, Jackpot/Reset connected and the older standalone games like 'pengpayu' and 'wcougaru' and will be playable, seems less picky on the 3 Way Memory.

The touch screen games require the SetChips, (You just need to set them up properly, just like a real machine, surprisingly this works). - Just need the touchscreen to be connected. The only thing is the 3 Way Memory is a little flakey.
