The other half of the lack of fun is that the "arcade classics" are ports on dumbed-down hardware and the originals generally just suck. But yeah, artwork for the controllers is probably a must smile

Unfortunately, this one guy's résumé seems to be the only thing listing the hardware on which some of these games run, and he didn't work on either of those. That said:

Quote:

* Disney Fairies – GPAC800/Accelerometer
* Power Rangers – GPAC800/Accelerometer
* Spiderman Masked Menace – GPAC500
* Star Wars:Clone Wars - SPG243 Lightgun
* Leapfrog - SPG243 BaseROM
* Toy Story – SPG243
* Animal Art Studio - SPG243
* Nemo – SPG243
* Fantastic Four – SPG240
* Spiderman – SPG110/GPAC300


Other folks' résumés list:

Quote:

* Spongebob Squarepants Dilly Dabbler - SPG110
* Super Silly Makeover - SPG110
* World Poker Tour - SPG110

For me that runned under a rom into console, without cart...

The built-in ROM is actually just an internal cartridge that gets switched out. I've already told JD it should be made into a BIOS that optional carts override, but he's lazy smile

Well, as the driver is clearly marked as a skeleton driver and it's clearly marked as "not working", you shouldn't worry about any driver-related issues at this time.

Fujitsu FM-Towns / FM-Towns Marty / Car Marty

Noticed that the memory-mapped ports at 0xcff80-0xcffff are mirrored in I/O ports 0xff80-0xffff.







Prince of Persia is now very playable, except that the Japanese text is wrong.

That's interesting - it looks like they reproduced the graphics from the Apple II Double Hi-Res screens complete with artifacting. Or is the graphics emulation not correct yet?

Other than the wrong Japanese character being displayed in places, I think it's otherwise pretty much correct. While I'm not terribly familiar with the Apple II, this version reminds me of the X68000 version, just somewhat faster.
