We continue our FM Towns Marty week by trying the conversion of the arcade game, Marble Madness.
We take a look at the classic platformer, Prince of Persia, that popularised rotoscoped animation in games. This version is on the FM Towns Marty.
For our Halloween special we take a look at the genesis of the survival horror experience, Alone in the Dark on the FM Towns Marty.
We received a second MVP-1 Car Marty recently but it was in a bad way, we gave it a clean, replaced the fuse and used some contact cleaner on all the points. Let’s see if it works now.
We already did a piece on the Car Marty, but we take a brief look inside it in this video.
A Galactic Odyssey
We take a look at another edutainment title on the FM Towns Marty, this time we go into outer space to learn about the history of space travel.
Inside the FM Towns Marty
We take one of our prized examples of the unfortunately forgotten console powerhouse, the FM Towns Marty, and open it up to see whats inside.
We play the classic arcade vertical shooter, Image Fight, on the FM Towns Marty.
Car Marty Pinout
Here’s the Pinout for the Floppy port on the Fujitsu Car Marty. This will allow you to connect an external Floppy Disk Drive (Japanese 3 mode, 3.5″)
Port as seen from the back of the machine.
IMPORTANT: Some of the ports marked NC (No Connection) are actually attached to the +7V line, make sure these are unconnected.
