Donkey Kong Jr - Atari 8-bit Arcade HACK update v8
Just days ago (link) we mentioned Darryl1970's Atari 8-bit hack of that classic game ' Donkey Kong Junior ', which was originally released in 1982 for Arcades and later released for home systems such as the Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Atari 8-bit , ColecoVision, Coleco Adam, Intellivision, NES and BBC Micro, with a C64 overhauled version released by Mr Sid at the end of last year. Well that same hack has just been updated again this week with new colour changes, a redraw of Mario's step, edits to Donkey Kong, spring redraw, bird tweaks and the redraw of all of Juniors frames compared to the arcade.
In regards to the current development as it's not finished, the developer has asked for help as noted here : Some color changes were made with other issues in mind. For example, Donkey Kong's color sets the color of the pillars. Donkey Kong and Jr cannot be the same color, because Jr. stand in front of the pillar on the Spring level. Also, Donkey Kong and Jr overlap in the intermission. The snapjaws inherit the color of DK. I tried green floors. The pillars looked great, but Mario's arm looked horrible. If somebody can help with display list interrupts as mentioned previously, there may be some hope for better colors.
As always we will try to keep you informed for future updates, but the latest version can be downloaded below via the forums.
