In Topic: MM MSX / Tatung Einstein version

16 February 2019 - 02:38 AM

Hi guys!

 

I just did not even know this Tatung Einstein version existed. I have written a brief article on Einstein Manic Miner:

Feel free to copy anything you wish to this site. I am not sure if it is interesting, but I would recommend getting the ZIP that contains 20 different disk images. Like I say in the article, I could not find a ML Monitor feature in MAME, so I wrote two simple C programs to create separate disk images for each room. This means that you can now start the Tatung Einstein Manic Miner in any room you wish! It is a bit clumsy to have to load a different image, but it works.

 

I actually tried The Final Barrier and to my surprise this version has a proper ending! Miner Willy ascends up to the ground and the game ends!

Few more pics, I could do with a cheat really I think. Will have to research that:

 

Hi Spider! I did not notice this thread earlier. I have completed C16 Manic Miner in the spring of 2010, I think I did it six times in a row, one single game, no cheats, no emulation, it was on a real C16 hardware.

 

I wrote a small article documenting some of the differences between C16 and C64 versions in 2010:

You can find one C16 cheat there, it enables free transport to any room. If you have a different, perhaps trained or cracked C16 release, then my hack might not work.

 

In that case, you can leech the C16 from that same page, I think it should work. I practiced beforehand using that version on a VICE emulator! :D

Spider, many thanks for the tip! Using ZIP made a huge difference. The AVI files compressed something like 93%, going from 163MB to only 9MB. I uploaded the videos in one ZIP file here, they are in the "Other resources" section. If the YouTube videos look awful and blurred, you can download the ZIP file, uncompress it and try to see the AVI files using a video player. On Fedora Linux 27, mplayer worked fine, but I am pretty sure others will too!

I will publish all videos on YouTube soon. I intend to complete the last four rooms if I can, then gonna make the videos public.
 

Hi guys! I am happy to say I have completed all 32 ORIC Manic Miner rooms now. But not in a row, of course. Just practicing each room individually with infinite lives enabled.

 

The first 16 rooms I did not document with video captures, the second half containing the last 16 screens on the other hand IS documented. I wrote a small article about this mission:

 

http://kolttonen.fi/...ner_videos.html

 

For reasons unknown to me, with some web browsers the YouTube videos are clear, with others they are ugly and blurred. I have the original Oricutron emulator's AVI video capture files and I can share them if there is a place to upload them. My kolttonen.fi site has limited storage space, so I cannot host the AVI files there. They are 163MB in total.

 

EDIT: If you guys want to embed those YouTube videos directly to this fantastic site, just go ahead! The link above points to a simple HTML page, the code can be copied from there.
