Have any of the APF M1000 cartridges been dumped and playable under MESS?

Thanks.

Yes, actually work on that has really heated up lately. All the carts except Space Destroyers have been dumped, and are believed to be good, with two revisions for Catena. Space Destroyers should be dumped eventually. There also appear to be two revisions for the BIOS, though we're still working on confirming that. PeT has made a few updates to the MESS driver. It isn't fully working, but some games are playable. Some Imagination Machine software has also been archived, but isn't playable in emulation.

I encourage anyone interested in APF systems to join the new Yahoo! group here:

Do you know if the dumped ROMS will work on an old APF M1000 emulator called APF_EMUW version 2.0.1?

thanks.

As far as I know, MESS is the first emulator to support cartridge dumps, since no dumps were available before.

Thank you. I went to the yahoo group and found a zipped file called APF_ROMS.ZIP and downloaded it. Some of the roms work under the current MESS, some don't. Also Bowling wasn't in it. Have they been redumped since?

Thanks!

Yes, Bowling's been dumped separately. You can get the full details on the archiving status on the group.
