SubjectList of ROM images confirmed to work on iPAQ new Reply to this message

Dear all,

Here's a list of ROM image names which I've managed to get to work sucessfully on the iPAQ. Bubble bobble and Pacland are both a bit slow, but the rest are pretty cool.

To get around the need to jump and move at the same time in games like Black Tiger, I remapped the keys so that moving left, right, etc fires on a single tap and moves if you hold down the direction. That leaves the "press in the dpad" allocation free for jump, making these games playable !

I'm looking for the filenames for known iPAQ-friendly versions of PacMan, Ms PacMan, any more recent ('83 onwards) shooters and any real "must haves" I've overlooked... feel free to follow up with any you know of !

:-)

Anyway, here's the list:

1943.zip
arkanoi2.zip
arkanoid.zip
atetris.zip
blktiger.zip
bublbobl.zip
cavenger.zip
ckong.zip
commando.zip
defender.zip
digdug.zip
digdugat.zip
exedexes.zip
frogger.zip
gng.zip
gyruss.zip
mario.zip
pacland.zip
scramble.zip
starwars.zip
szaxxon.zip
timeplt.zip

For Black Tiger, set up fire so it can be activated by d-pad left, right or down. Also make sure that the appropriate joystick movements are mapped to those directions. Then map jump onto depress d-pad. This way the first time you press left right or down, you'll fire in that direction and if you want to keep diring without mving keep stabbing the appropriate direction. To actually move in that direction, press and hold (this fires too). Then you can combine moving, firing and jumping by holding the d-pad in a given direction and pressing it in when approriate. This takes practivce but is worth it if, like me, you LOVE Black Tiger (it was me who posted the earlier message saying it was my favourite game).
