Re: Street Fighter 2 for 8-bit systems

someone has done a disassembly of the sf2 arcade and translated most of it to C i guess that could be translated to z80. it would be funny to see the exact arcade gameplay of sf2 on a spectrum :D a disassembly of spectrum sf2 would be interesting. I guess they had to reverse engineer the arcade game...

Street Fighter 2 for 8-bit systems

Re: The inevitable worst game ever thread

1985 is rubbish but as a kid I didnt just dismiss it. The sound and graphics created a bit of an atmosphere.

I thought that it was my own fault for not being good enough at the game. I just considered it to be too hard but something that I could possibly take a go at now and again.

Re: Fuse on Ubuntu: Roms

ok thanks
I used to use other versions of linux

Ubuntu stops me from installing a windows program from DVD a macromedia thing
I think its because ubuntu stops certain files being copied onto hard disk

so i would prefer a different version but ubuntu is ok :)

Re: Game art copied from elsewhere

Does anyone know how they copied an image off the TV in the 80's? Did they simply put tracing paper directly on the TV? I think at some point you could get an amiga and print a paused video tape, but not sure when that was possible. A lot of the images could be copied from the video cover and back, ...
