Hi there!


So there I spent almost 3 hours to convert "Follow the Leader" yesterday (...by far the most complicated level to transfer so far - you've seen one of the 9(!) macro calls...) and today I've been waking up realising that the level won't work on the 2600 anyway...

Problem is, in this level your Joystick input is "recorded" and after a while there's several evil Jumpman "shadows" followong your path, precisely as it was recorded (Like in... anybone remembering "Flood" from Bullfrog?)

That effect will use way too much RAM for a proper conversion...

Oh well... 5 more levels to go in the advanced set...
