Konami these days is pretty much only a gambling company. Here's Quick Pick 5 from the more distant past when that was a sideline. Colors are obviously wrong smile

Now we've got a full POST test and color. Trying to get the sprites going now.

Oops, sorry... it's not the 1st time I stumble in the "add link" dialog of the forum editor...
Hopefully this is the correct link: HP_2645A.zip

Getting very close to done now, sprites are working. (This title screen is made entirely of sprites, surprisingly).

Edit: Seems like a bug in the game. It flips the buffers after writing to the crtc regs then draws the frame after next to the back buffer, which is still being displayed until the next vblank. I can't find any videos on the internet of this so I don't know how it looks on real hardware.

Funny, I was looking at that yesterday and wondering why the hell the game was writing a bunch of 0x30 where the menus should be. I guess now I know...

I've found that if I add "m_fdc->set_force_ready(true)" to machine_start it seems to solve that issue, but I haven't submitted that because I don't really understand the floppy system all that well, and I don't know if it's the "right" solution (as in, more or less accurate to real hardware).

Added a workaround for this. Brandish is weird, it tries to read sector 14 on an 8 sector per side image. I've seen copy protection like that before but the same image works on UNZ, maybe they watch for that and fake it?
