    and you got almost the same shots as me.

    in the game you play Santa Claws, the game is a standered platform game like atlantis or jaz jackrabit. pre rendered 3d graphics into funky looking 2d sprites with not so fluid animation. destory gnomes by swinging your sack of goodies. harts on top idacate life left. mildly entartaining if you like christmass games in march...

    I don't think it's a bad game especially not for a 32MB one, it doesn't take up a lot of space yet it's a fun platform game to play anywhere. Of course if you take it seriously and rate it by serious platform games standards (i.e Rayman 3, Sonic 2 and stuff) it's crap [​IMG]

    BTW Santa Calus Jr is a VERY beautiful game, people underrated it a lot, the game's got good atmosphere and a very interesting sound track, graphics and gameplay are great too IMO.

    off topic a bit but theres no topic around here where you can just talk about whatever [​IMG]

    Here we have this santa ROM listed as 937 but all over the place it is at 938. This has to do with that damn Grimlens redump.

    I'm more inclined to agree with leaving it out as it is just a redump of a bad dump introed ROM. The only diffrence in the redump and the original dump is the header on the original dump is diffrent. but I dont think it is diffrent becose it was a diffrent cart. it looks like part of the header was striped off or not dumped correct.

    If you open the old dump in a hex editor and change the header to match the re dump and add the crap on the end of the file to match you will create an identical CRC.

    I dont belive theres a new cart that differes in just a few little bytes of header info [​IMG]

    So whats the deal with this game.what list is correct?

    Have you noticed when you try to remove the intro on Santa Claus, you get the message "REMOVE THIS EMULAMERS"?

    I like the game. It reminds me of Commander Keen (I think mostly because of the music, but you also need a key to end the level and there are laser barriers and elevators). [​IMG]

    I think it's better than other standard platform games.

    I already did play it. It was a PC game from the 90's if I'm not mistaken.

    Your intro remover doesn't work too well, still displays that message.

    Works perfectly. If you're using Visualboy Advance uncheck the Remove Intros option. My patches are aimed to be used with the real thing.
