aargh Smile

well, at least in nlmsx that game is unplayable Smile However, there were also rumours about aleste 2 being very hard to play in en emulator, compared to a real msx.

Let's say: if you get nothing but '10' after a dive in hyper sports, even then you'll loose here Smile

anyway, I liked the choice of using "Eye of the Tiger" as title-track Smile

What do you mean with unplayable? doesn't the keyboard respond correctly??...anyway, as I explain in the readme, better use a joystick.

About the music, I had that idea from the beginning and Jorito made that great job!

By the way... I didn't code the game during the meeting, but before the meeting to make a contest there.

well, the keyboard response is fine I think..

It's as I said: even when you're able to dive in Hyper Sports, getting nothing but '10' from the jury, even then you can't win this game. I'm hitting the keyboard as fast as I can, but I'm not stronger than the opponent. The only reason I loose is because I get tired after 30 secs at level 1 Smile

But again, maybe it's because of nlmsx.. dunno.. have you tried it in nlmsx ?

NLMSX runs too slow in my PC (I've got a Pentium 233 MMX).

I managed to beat all three levels on my MSX using joystick. With the keyboard I only beat the first level. That's because if you use the keyboard it is very easy to push both keys at the same time when you play... with the joystick it doesn't happen, of course.

ok.. mistake.. dumbdumb..

<Wolf_><<------ PIGEON !!!!

you can indeed use the LEFT & RIGHT keys, previously I only used the RIGHT key Smile

o.t.o.h. .. quite an archievement: lasting 30 secs with only the RIGHT key before giving up Smile
