Astrocade Core

Postby kitrinx » Tue Dec 25, 2018 4:55 am

The Astrocade was a competitor to the Atari 2600 and Odyssey2 back in the late 70's. It never reached much popularity, but it had some pretty good games, including Space Fortress and an excellent "port" of Wizard of Wor. Recently there was also a very good reproduction of Warlords done for the system. Note that the system output very odd analog video, and many upscalers may have issues with it.

To check out the core, take a look here:

As always, please read the github instructions for setting up the bios and controls. If you're interested in learning more about the system, the following site has a nice collection of information and homebrew:

Great core! I love exploring consoles I don't own. I can't get ICBM Attack rom to load up but all others seem to work just fine. Thanks again for this core :cheers:
