Attic Bug in SameGame: Can't "choose your venue"

Post by BigEd » Tue Dec 19, 2017 4:42 pm

I can't get started on this game - am I missing a trick? The van just drives at full speed past all the houses. In fact there's a very very brief flash of an instruction screen just before that. Perhaps it thinks there's a key stuck down...

In (Mac) BeebEm, it looks like the game works in Model B mode and in Master mode.

Seems to work in Model B mode in B-Em (under WINE on Mac) too.

But in JSBeeb, it doesn't seem to work in either Master mode or Model B mode.

Not sure what's going on.

I wonder if this is another example of a game that fails in JSBeeb because of some obscure timing issue?
