Dammit! So close to the end of level 6. Helicopters and spread shot turrets are the main problems for me right now.
Two times more I made it to level 6, now playing on the mednafen emulator to be able to stream the whole thing to YouTube. The last attempt went well, and I reached the final boss. But it was too much. Maybe tomorrow.
Bjørn was visiting, and we played a game of Jackal on the old NES.
Another good NES game that Thomas and I tried, but it crashed. I wonder if I should buy a top-loader NES or something?
I bought a new NES on dba.dk and picked it up in Gentofte. I'm currently testing it out, and it seems very stable so far. The guy I bought it from was using it for world record score attempts, so that makes sense. I played the 3 first levels of Jackal, worked perfectly.
I just made a RetroAchievements account and tried playing Jackal on the RANes emulator. It's a mod of FCEUX with support for achievements. I got 4 achievements from playing through the first level.
OK, Jackal works on the MiSTer. This is going to work out, I think.
