Videopac Gunfighter not working

Unread post by 0xdeadbeef »

Somewhat selfish request but Gunfighter was more or less the only Videopac game I every played on an actual Philips console and specifically this one is not working on MiSTer (yet). Is there any hope this will be fixed at some point?

I am not seeing a bug for it, if you are able to add one with details of the issue then hopefully it will get fixed, but without an issue being raised it is harder for developer to know there is an issue.

It's already mentioned under "Known issues" on the main page for the core:
A few games (gunfighter) don't work at this time.
So I guess the developers are aware.

This core was ported from MiST and is incompete and has got many issues.

Maybe those infos would help to improve the core (I know MAME is different from FPGA):
https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/ma ... yssey2.cpp

Let's hope someone is interested to improve and upgrade this core as the console itself is very interesting and actually more powerful (at least specs-wise) than the well-known ATARI 2600.

Similar to the Intellivoice (Mattel Intellivision) there were a few games which supported a special voice module called "The Voice".

A great game manual collection:
