Demons and Dragons - part 2

Well, as it turns out - the one piece of Professor Pacman hardware that I didn't emulate is used by D&D. The good news is - I got it working tonight! Now profpac passes all self-tests, and demndrgn runs into the game portion. I need to map the controllers and dips now, since I can't control the player yet.

Right now there is no sound, but it sure seems like it was supposed to have speech! There is a part where a wizards head fills the screen, and his lips move. I wonder what's up with that?

Anyways - pretty neat stuff

Update: in-game screenshots...

I'd like to say this was a game I've always wanted to see emulated, but I've never even heard of it before. Still it's from the Golden Age of video games. When programers were lucky to have 32k to work with and would often squeeze remarkable games from virtually nothing. Can't wait till it makes it into Mame. Thank you for the effort Frank.

After a "short break"...I'm working on MAME again. :) After all the excitement about the discovery of an Easter Egg in Starshi...
