GBC Warriors of Might and Magic

Post by Alyosha_TAS » Thu Mar 29, 2018 6:47 am

Hi all,

I have a question regarding this game and am wondering if anyone has this game on console to do a quick test.

In pictures I see online and in Gambatte, the screen looks like this:

Notice that at the split between the playfield and the status bar, ex 'HP', the characters are right at the top of the split.

But, the Sachen game Beast Fighter happens to use the window in exactly the same way as this game, and it expects one more scanline of the window to be shown. When I implement this behavious, I get this:

Notice there is one extra border pixel around the characters now. I believe this is probably correct, but all the online pics I can find look like Gambatte, so I would really appreciate it if someone can power up the game on console and check.

Thank you!

Cool, thank you for testing tobiasvl!

I would have bet that the complete border would have been correct but hardware wins. I would think the border was intended based on how it’s stored in the window, I wonder what went wrong ?
