Quote from: ShadowOne333 on October 02, 2017, 12:50:52 PMWould a port of the Atari 2600 version to the NES be something someone would want to see?
QuoteIt uses the same ASM language as the NES, which is 6502

Quote from: standigz on October 04, 2017, 04:38:03 PMIt's not? ugh, that's one of the reasons I dislike undumped stuff... no way to guaranty permanent availability.Looking back at my post it seemed somewhat terse. I don't mean to belittle any interest or effort. A freely available alternative would probably be enjoyed by many. I find atari ports to be novel and fun on the NES. I already enjoy the Pitfall! homebrew and the dumped Atari Flashback games.
Quote from: Psyklax on October 04, 2017, 07:03:31 PMWell at least one person dumped that game... the guy in the video. He's playing it in FCEUX - and the moron just maximised his window instead of doing proper full screen, so it appears in a tiny box in the centre. But anyway, did he just dump it himself for his own personal benefit? Or is it out there?p.s. I completely understand why people wouldn't want to distribute a ROM if the dev is selling it himself and it would cut into his money, that's fair enough. Just pointing out that at least THAT guy definitely dumped it.
Quote from: Jorpho on October 04, 2017, 09:04:33 PMIn the first twenty seconds he claims to have personally worked with the developer on the game's creation.
Quote from: Zoinkity on October 05, 2017, 08:28:43 AMbut because they also made the ridiculous decision to produce more carts than there were systems on the presumption people would run out and buy one just to play the game.
Quote from: ShadowOne333 on October 04, 2017, 04:49:14 PMI believe the reason why no one dumped the ROM out of that port is because it was a homebrew game that was being sold by the original creator.
Quote from: KingMike on October 06, 2017, 01:54:26 PMA bit of a double-standard to say they won't dump a homebrew game but will dump corporate-produced games.But I suppose because it's a homebrew they won't dump for one of two reasons: either they feel more sympathetic to a homebrew dev who they see as a person than a corporation who they see as faceless.Or, of course, scarcity and collecting for resale is probably a factor too.
Quote from: goldenband on October 07, 2017, 12:36:16 AMI have to assume it's the latter, since refusing on moral grounds to dump a homebrew that itself massively infringes someone else's IP (and brings essentially nothing new to the table in so doing, i.e. it's just a clone)......well, it's hard to imagine how someone could take that stance, and then look in the mirror without feeling completely ridiculous. But far stranger things have happened in the 21st century retrogaming scene.
