If you look real close and then close one eye you can see Joe9 sitting on a VB longneck.

Pretty cool even though Xevious isn’t my preferred shooter

Are you reading the original code and writing something like C? Or writing it straight into another assembly language?

Right now I'm translating from Z80 to 68K on the Neo Geo. In the past I've done direct-to-C translations for other projects, which have worked out well. You need well-structured code to do it. It would probably work for Xevious as the code is pretty well structured. I haven't decided if I'll bother yet; I'm not sure there's any other platforms that would need to run a C version rather than simply emulate the arcade.

I came into this thread thinking it was gonna be about beer....

I also like Xevious. Pretty much the only game I kept in my Atari 7800 back in the day

Progress. Implementation of the foreground and background tile layers complete, with scrolling on the background layer. High level routines transcoded for both main and sub CPU. You can coin up and start a game. Sprites to come next...

How do you obtain the Xevious code. Can you decompile or is that just available somewhere?
