What do you mean why not the whole game? You've already mapped it, just not the "Choppers" levels. I think they were in the MegaDrive version but not the Master System Version or something.

Yes, but the Mega Drive version (presumably) also had updated graphics and quite likely different tracks too. Just because one port is mapped doesn't mean the others aren't worth mapping.

Only the Choppers levels are what haven't been mapped from Micro Machines (as a general game, not a specific port), and all the levels that are in the SMS version are all in the MD version, and all the ones in the MD version (apart from the Choppers, of course) are in the SMS version... AFAIK, they're exactly the same, just with updated graphics... but I suppose you could map the Genesis version...

All the Micro Machines 1 versions seem pretty similar; the SMS one lacked some graphics due to tileset size restrictions, and its 16-of-64-colours palette is more restrictive than the Mega Drive's 64-of-512.

Well in that case, do the whole game... is it also possible to do "Micro Machines Military - It's a Blast!" as well as "'96" and the original?

Anything's possible, but it doesn't mean I'm going to do it...

<_< I meant would you do Military as well as maybe doing '96 and the MegaDrive version of the original?

1. I wasn't even supposed to do this one. I just got a bit too "into it".

2. If I did another, it'd be '96, but there are a few killer problems with that. (Mainly a few tracks with annoying palette effects that I'd need to mod Gens for.)

3. I don't really care about 1. I played the SMS version so that's the one I mapped.

4. I played Military once, and hated it. Why map a game I dislike?



My next mapping project will either be finishing one of the 8-bit ones I've started (Cool Spot is nearly done), or doing a stage or two from Sonic 1 (since I want to test my automapper on a different type of game). I also had a quick go with Landstalker but it really needs a hack to properly map a lot of the restrictive parts.

TUK, can you give me a full track listing for the game? The saves are missing a few (eg. Challenge track 7) and I want to add that info to the headers. Does the Super League have a fixed track order?

Excellent, thanks :) It looks like Head to Head mode matches Challenge, correct?

Yep, Head to Head has exactly the same courses as Challenge.

All done (again), this time with headers.



I found a Firefox extension for batch Imageshack/Photobucket upload and custom gallery creation, which makes this very easy:



User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image User posted image



Note: headers added 50% to the size of this set, probably due to often tipping the balance from 4 to 8 bits per pixel to fit the images in. But I decided I like them better this way.

Cool... although Bricks N Trees is not Trial Race 15 on a Non-J-Cart, it's Pipe Patience, just like on a J-Cart, because I have both. The ROM I have was possibly edited with a hex editor or something.

Hmm... well, I'll leave it as it is for now. It may be a version difference. Both versions are marked as [!] in GoodGen.
