are Bandai RX78 Gundam roms that rare? :O
« on: May 11, 2015, 08:58:48 PM »
hi!

since in the last months i were using Boriel’s ZX-Basic Compiler for attempting targeting a wide range of z80-based computers, consoles, arcade machines, etc., sometimes i were picking some "clues" from the existing classic games released in the 80's for these machines (sometimes obscure ones)

and it seems that games for Bandai RX78 Gundam are really rare (and not yet available at archive.org ) - some released titles in the 80s can be seen at http://www.game-nostalgia.net/rx78/rx78.html

in overall, my focus is on recent homebrew, and developing them - but i'm really struggling on that (i can't get more than "*L" with a blinking cursor - i guess the rom file might need some special signature or anything alike )

thanks and cheers! :)

It seems they are quite rare, I guess since this system is very much unknown outside of Japan especially.

I know MESS have these listed as 'wanted' for a while now (http://www.mess.org/dumping/games_needed) and I'm not aware of anyone else having any software from the RX78.

Hopefully someone who has any of these can step up!  :)

thanks! btw, some game roms might be somewhere around, since Takeda Toshiya shared screenshots of 3 games in his webpage: http://homepage3.nifty.com/takeda-toshiya/rx78/index.html
