Super Road Blaster released

197_1336942296.pngI'm releasing version 1.0 of Road Blaster for SNES today, which has aptly been renamed to Super Road Blaster. Not all planned features and requests (persistent highscore saving, 256color intro video etc.) have been implemented, but I hope you enjoy it anyway:

Road Blaster

-advancing slowly-

991_1329173739.pngJust a quick update for those waiting for the finished release of Road Blaster:

Progress has been slow, but steady. I've fixed a couple of memory leaks, polished up most of the graphics, added some bells & whistles here and there and most importantly corrected a couple of serious bugs in my video graphics converter tool.
On top of that, I'm also preprocessing the video with a filter in order to compress better, which is the key to NTSC video support.
Can't give you an ETA yet, and I suspect that I'll be busy working on that game for quite some time still, but I'll keep you posted.

Road Blaster on SNES

-beta 0.1 release-

717_1324879694.pngIt's that time of the year again...

A little late for christmas and sadly not finished, but rather barely playable, here's something new for your SNES.

The first direct port of a laserdisc game to the SNES, the first MSU-1 game and the biggest game on the SNES yet, at a whopping 6816 Mbit in size.
Msu-1 support is mandatory, so you will need either Bsnes or a sd2snes cartridge.

This thing is very unpolished, has a couple of graphical glitches and doesn't run in NTSC mode (due to v-blank limitations) yet, but I didn't feel like sitting on it any longer.

I give you:
Road Blaster
