Note: After upping the DDL files I noticed that I had the view set for "Publisher -Activision". I only mention this because a new user to Gamebase may be confused and think there are only 9 games..

You just need to change the view to "all games".
The torrent was fixed.

Trying to get this running with windows 7. I updated the emulator to colem version 2.6. The emulator starts up fine and loads the game, but when I click alt-enter for full-screen view, the window seems to switch to fullscreen, but it's still "windowed", only now it's a fullscreen window. It's not how you imagine fullscreen should look. And when I quit from there, my desktop is still left at 640x480 resolution, and there is a pop-up window that says "Error - CreateSurface".

Only after I click "ok" on that error window does my desktop return to my normal resolution. This doesn't seem right. What's going on here?


EDIT: It seems ver. 2.6 has a problem with fullscreen mode. Even running it outside of gamebase does the same thing. I went back to ver. 2.5 and fullscreen runs fine. Whatever he changed between versions messed up fullscreen. I sent him an email to let him know about the error.

COLEO UPDATED!

Wed Sep 20, 2017 9:17 pm

ColecoVision v1.1 (2011)
Created and compiled by 420

v1.2 update by .mad. (2017)
https://mega.nz/#!u9BwWSLA!GizAtrjX_5Ey ... G-_9pCoh04

Replaced the bad Choplifter ROM

Joypad hacked ROMs
-------------------
Destructor
Slither
Turbo
Victory

All Box scans are now stored as extras, rather than screenshot.
re-snapped a few screenshots that had been stretched or squashed.
corrupting the odd pixel. :P

Dukes of Hazzard is now playable in the latest version of BlueMSX.
comes with a preconfigued setup from the gamebase script to use a mouse and keyboard combination.

There are some quality HomeBrew Carts available for the system.
I hope the digital ROMs will be made available for a future release.

no, do it from the frontend "Game" Tab.
right click on the Control: "Driving Controller" text.
and change it in the pull down menu to
"Driving Controller (Optional)"

then the script will setup the joypad instead of the steering wheel for those 2 fixed roms.
