1993-1999 / Alienis Kill Screen
« Last post by SuperKlondike64 on Today at 12:10:08 AM »
Hello! I decided to do a playthrough of the game Alienis out of boredom one day, and I think I may have discovered a kill screen within the game. Shortly after you begin Level 25, all the sprites freeze and the screen begins to randomly shake vertically. Strangely enough, the music still continues despite the chaos. Would anyone more tech-savvy know why this happens? I suspect it's an integer overflow like almost every other kill screen in the history of gaming, but Battle City (the game it's based off of) had 35 levels, and even then the game just looped, not crashing. Just a little anomaly I found, but it might still be interesting to a few of you.

Thanks a lot! I believe these were also used in a screen in Super Hang-On 1997, seen here:

Other Pirates / Re: VTG Interactive games thread

Not too long after making this thread I learned that a version of Virtual Baseball was dumped and support for the game and the VTG Interactive console was being worked on in MAME: https://twitter.com/MameHaze/status/1802134985463206129?s=19. In case anyone isn't able to view the tweet, the first image attached contains a full screen version of the VTG Interactive logo featured on the box of the console and games (which is on the BootlegGames Wiki article). Assuming that this is a splash screen, this is a pretty big discovery as the only other visual footage of Virtual Baseball available right now shows the game booting up with an animation for a different logo (here), and suggests that two revisions of this game might exist, assuming that my assumption is correct. Don't think I can extrapolate much more from this until video footage of the game dumped in MAME comes out/support for it is released, though.

This is what was decrypted through the OCR service. Some of the hieroglyphs were not recognized, but it can be understood from them that these are just copyrights of the developers.

Ruten, Shopee Taiwan, and Yahoo Auctions Taiwan are all good sites to try. You'll need an agent to buy from them if you aren't in Taiwan though. I'd recommend Miakyou as an agent

Gave a pretty thorough search a try and didn't find it. The listing must've sold out, sorry. If you want to try and find a copy the countries I've seen it listed out of are Taiwan, Austria, and Indonesia. Good luck

Alright sure please do send me the old copy of it. I'll give it a try. If it doesn't work then it's fine.
 But I will give it a try! Thank you for the respond! I really appreciate it! :)

I know this is super late but do you still have the dump file for this Chikorita bootleg game?
If so, may you please email this to me? :) I would be so happy to play this!

It isn't supported in emulators. I tried dumping it a long time ago, but I am not even sure anymore if I dumped it correctly the first time back when I posted it. If you are serious about wanting to play it then I do remember an old listing for a copy that might still be up if you want to play it on real hardware, but I'm not sure if that one is still up
