I don't remember about Popeye, it's been a long time but in general, it is because of the interruptions. I gave up several conversions when it was taking a little too long.

AFAIK Muffie has a fully converted BIOS that, in theory (don't remember all the details) deal with all kinds of interruption trickery that might be used by any game.

I do not believe it since the BIOS and the ROM must be modified to run many games. And if so, he would have made a Rom loader instead of bothering to release the Roms one by one from time to time.

I can see why. Popeye heavily uses rst 38h and NMI simultaneously (you need to treat them separately disabling MSX interruptions only on NMI). Besides the game does some weird stuff with RAM mirroring.
Anyway, I saw a working conversion with some minor twitches where Olivia hearts fall too fast to the bottom.
BTW, sound is perfect as the game does not seems to use any noise.

Thanks to everyone involved in this whole conversion thing. It's science, but it has that magical vibe to it (especially if I think to it with the mind of myself circa 1985 - boom).
A question - I never saw Cabbage Patch Kids - the Coleco Female Athletic Land version - converted on MSX. Has the conversion ever been attempted? Did I not looked around good enough?

Thank you!
B.

Yep. It's really, REALLY fun. Using modern debugging tools and trying to figure out what the developer was trying to achieve.
Now that we're getting old, helps a lot to keep our minds sharp! Wink

*PS* if you have the .COL file, from the Colecogame you mentioned, just share it here (URL?). Maybe we can just make it work. Muffie's files (Converted BIOS, Joystick/Arrows and Sound emulator) work automatically for >70% of games.

Cabbage Patch Kids already exists for the msx as well.

Sure! What i find charming about the ColecoVision version is that it's a sort of missing link between MSX Athletic Land and MSX Cabbage patch Kids. Basically it's Athletic Land (gameplay and gfx) with a girl.
Of special interest is the "enhanced prototype" which was planned for Adam and then scrapped - it includes some gfx from the soon-to-be MSX CPK version. (Video here, full story here)

Neat! Thank you.
Here's the link to several Coleco Cabbage Patch Kids variations. God bless File-Hunter;)
I think the ones to go are the "regular" . col and the 16KB "enhanced prototype", the 31KB looks like an overdump.

I was able to get the title going on all of these, but none of them seem to work the way it's suppose to. I might do a Muffie version.

Few glitches. Probably related to the joystick emulator.
This game uses all RST hooks! :)

Alright. :-)
Good thing is that he's actually fixing everything!
