A new version of Z26 is out! This version is available
for download at the Emulators Page. For those that don't know,
and as you can see from the picture, this is an Atari
2600 console emulator. It is coded by John Saeger, and it
is updated quite frequently I might add. Here are the
improvements included in this version, copied and pasted
direct from the readme file:
|Z26 1.31! - June 11, '99 by JoseQ
"Various graphics improvements, mostly having to do with implementing
some undocumented positioning properties of the 2600. Some of the
most difficult to emulate 2600 games now run nicely. One of the
most dramatic game improvements is gijoe.bin/actionmn.bin. The snake
has eluded emulation for years. z26 gets it right. Other improved
games include polepsn.bin, fatalrun.bin, koolaide.bin, snoopy.bin,
solaris.bin (hyperspace now correct), mash.bin (trees now accurate),
duckshot.bin, dolphin.bin/tubybird.bin (clouds move smoothly),
moonptrl.bin, batlzone.bin, thundgrd.bin, and maybe others. At this
point, there isn't much left to fix in the graphics area.
Thanks to Eckhard Stolberg for help figuring out some of the puzzles
in this release. Also for writing a special demo program that helped
map out some of the 2600's undocumented positioning properties."
Enjoy! and thanks to Emulatronia (Spanish) for the news.
