There may also be a chance to convert games 'natively' to the FireBee, without using a dedicated emulator. It's a bit too early to promise anything, but it's something I'd surely like to try.

The original cause of the crash is elsewhere.

Exactly, and Klapauzius is counting it still as "Alpha" software!! Incredible isn´t it?jfl wrote:Oh Boy. This is insane. I tried it just out of curiosity since I was certain my LCD panel would not handle it but the game works perfectly! With sound and all! It's really amazing to see such an old game run so well on such a new machine. This tells a lot about all the work done by all involved in this project to make this possible.

I am not sure if it is still necessary. If so Klaz has to explain it, I didn understand it exactlyDal wrote:I did not wait 2 minutes before trying to run the game. Didn't even know this was something that should be done - what's the reason?

But does it work if you wait a little bit?
