tandymod test games?

Post by erikarn »

hi!

I've got one of chuck's tandymod things here that I've built up and hopefully didn't destroy. (I definitely need to figure out how to use a reflow surface. Aiee.)

Anyway, what's a good game/program to test the before/after with this?

Thanks!

Kings Quest is one that I used to test the Tandymod

ok, i ran that with the switch on and off, it does the right thing!

The Bard’s Tale is a good test as well.

Here’s a question. Has anyone had trouble running Arkanoid in Tandy mode with the mod? I recall as a kid it worked fine on my unmodified PCjr (even though when you started it up you were supposed to pick between CGA, EGA, or Tandy). Now, with the mod installed, the title screen starts but the game goes crazy. This is not the vertical blinds problem, so likely another issue. I didn’t add a switch to my mod yet, so need to go in and add one to see if it will play in non modded mode, but thought I would ask around first.
