Omega Race (set 1)

0.28 [Bernd Wiebelt]


- The Omega race sound is pitched too high (the game speed timing is ok) I have a golden opportunity to fix this! I have a recording taken off a web-site of an Omega Race machine recorded in an 80's arcade, the pitch/sounds are the tape are exactly what I remembered when I played it way back when... I am attaching a .mp3 of the sounds, seems like all sounds needs to be pitched down almost an octave-the sound clock may be too high? omegrace0101u2gre mamemaster256

- Once you complete the first several levels of the game, and you get the screen, "First Droid Wave Complete" (or something to that effect), you get awarded an extra life, accompanied by a chirping sound to indicate it. After this, the droning BGM of the game is corrupted for the subsequent levels. omegrace0104u9gre tamacula

- 0.108u5: Mathis Rosenhauer rewrote the Atari vector generators, using the schematics and actual state machine PROMs. The state machine is now emulated so timing should be much more realistic.
