Z26 1.31! - June 11, '99 by JoseQ
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:

"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.
