MADrigal's simulators

» 3rd November, 2003

More game updates today, thanks to the contribution of the kind gentleman Julian Ross Olds: he sent me scans from the instructions manual of Banana by VTech. I use the occasion to celebrate my degree in Engineering (October 21st) by releasing the updated game with instructions manual browser woho!

- Banana (VTech, Time & Fun) S3/1.03 (Standard 3, graduation release!)

Also updated (minor clock routines bug-fix):

- Lifeboat (Nintendo, Game & Watch Multi Screen) S3/1.04 (Standard 3, graduation release!)

Get both games from the downloads page!

Yet another update in a sunny and relaxing July... Thanks to the contribution of Lio Kit Wah from Hong Kong, who submitted scans from the original instructions manual, I was able to complete the simulator of:

- Egg (Nintendo, Game & Watch Wide Screen) S3/1.02 (Standard 3, manual added)

It also features new Fmod 3.6 library. Also updated:

- Banana (VTech, Time & Fun) S3/1.02 (Standard 3, minor bug-fix)

The fix concerns the clock rendering routines, the addition of a shaped form adding more realism to the game, and the addition of the Fmod 3.6 sound library.

No news on the forthcoming simulator for Galaxy II (Epoch) yet... unfortunately my tasks at the university took most of my time recently. I am planning to release the game next Summer.

In the meantime, I'm updating a simulator of a true classic game (thanks to Jerry Chan for reporting the bug). Game now correctly saves keysettings, and I also added the newest Fmod sound library (ver. 3.6).

Updated game:

- Mario Bros (Nintendo, Game & Watch Multi Screen) S3/1.01 (Standard 3, minor bug-fix)

While completing my forthcoming simulator for Galaxy II (Epoch), I got a couple of great tabletop games by my good friends Roberto Ventura and Januz Daga, that's Wild Man Jump and Chicky Woggy by VTech!

I applied the graphics of the former to the source code of my previously released simulator of Monkey Jump (that's the "handheld" version). In this occasion, I also updated the handheld simulator with an important bug-fix.

The new releases are:

- Wild Man Jump (VTech, Electronic Tini-Arcade) S3/1.00 (Standard 3, final) (release #35)
- Monkey Jump (VTech, Arcade Time & Fun) S3/1.01 (Standard 3, bug-fix)

Get them from the downloads page!

NOTE: the tabletop version was also released with other names: Hop' Man, Jungle Rescue and Il Folle Innamorato.
