Space Ava 201 Newly Released Game

Unread post by grizzly »

Just watched retrorbg´s latest weekly news video and saw that Space Ava 201 is a new opensource game released for the TG16/supergrafx.
And it can utilize the supergrafx and the arcade card, or work without them.
Anyway looks really interesting.

Nice :) how do you enable the new SGX with CD mode on mister?
this game changes depending on the System card you choose and if there is a SuperGrafx connected too!

From smokemonsters post on retrorgb.
To play the enhanced mode in MiSTer, add an empty file named sgx (with no extension) to the game’s folder to tell MiSTer to launch the CD in SuperGrafx mode (and enable the Arcade Card from the core’s menu).
Have not tried it yet my self, going to wait so i can play with it for 2-3 hours.

In order to enable SGX mode on CD, you must be using the latest version of Main_MiSTer (released Oct 27).
You will also need to create a file named "sgx" inside the folder where the game is stored.

This functions in a similar way to the game-specific cd_bios overrides, but the "sgx" file is just a flag, so it doesn't matter what's in it (if anything).

So similar to how you do this with Pier Solar on Sega cd (where you put a cart.rom of the Pier Solar game in the same folder as the enhanced cd soundtrack for Sega CD's image, and load it in the Sega CD core). Cool!

Thanks a lot for sharing these instructions. Creating an empty file did the trick indeed! Very nice game!

Played around for a bit over an hour now but not really my kind of game, but is probably good for those that do like them.
The arcade card/SGX mode for CD games is really neat/cool tough.

It looks like there may be color reproduction issues with the SuperGrafx mode. The title screen doesn't show the silhouette from the developer's reference captures. https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/TurboGr ... issues/124
