Rampart (Trackball)

0.35b13 [Aaron Giles]


- P3 buttons 1 and 2 are mapped twice. THIS IS NOT A BUG!


- Rampart still seems to have cosmetic issues, even now that the slapstic emulation is complete. Sound FX / Sound Items come at the wrong times occasionally, such as having the announcer yell "Cease Fire" while you are building your castle, or hearing cannon sounds go off during the build round. Playback on the trackball version (original romset 'rampart') will often cut out and go blue screen, which leads me to believe that either sound or control is still not properly emulated in the game (trackball movement is pathetically slow in the game, much slower than the arcade). I'm unsure if the last thing I noticed is a bug or not: ships disappear sometimes after the 'Destruction' round, which may be a bug, but more importantly, if that ship was beached before disappearing, it can still drop off armies the next round, even though it isn't there. Did this happen on the original machine as well? rampart053gre Q.T.Quazar / BSR
