I'm surprised this was never mentioned yet.
But then again I guess the Intellivision aint so popular these days. sleeping.gif

Seems there is a controller conflict "built in" into BlissX.

Since the left analog pad is "mapped to the joystick" internally the default settings for pushing buttons on the Intellivision do not work correctly.

For example if you press up on the left analog stick, it presses both the 0 and the 8 button. Left does 2 & 0. Right does 3 & 6..... etc. And we all know what happens when you press too many buttons at the same time on the intellivision! laugh.gif

This can be got around by mapping the pad number buttons to both the analog stick AND another button. Picking a free button is another problem in of itself. ohmy.gif

These conflicts can be verified by running the Intellivision test cartridge.

Slight correction. This can only be gotten around by unmapping the left analog stick completely.

Unless (obviously) this problem is addressed/fixed.

Just noticed that the sound gets a little wonky with some games. The volume will get real loud, and then real quiet, etc.

It's most obvious in the game Carnival. Not sure if the PC bliss had this problem as well. Also realized that save states are currently not implemented as well.

Well, since BlissX was made, the PC version has jumped from 1.9d to 2.0.4, so I imagine with that big of a number change that there were a bunch of fixes, and if Xport gets around to updating BlissX, I'm sure he'll update the sources.

Go into the configuration menu, configure controllers, controller 1, change joypad mappings, game mappings and reassign 0-3 to something else like the d-pad.

It's not that hard to do and your gonna need to learn to do it anyways with intellivision games.

Intellivoice support and this emulator would be perfect. I know you said in a 2004 post that it would be impossible, but hopefully the new 2.0.4 sources are a bit easier smile.gif

Other then that perfect emulator!

I don't know if my problem with the emulator is the same as described above but I have tried the recommended fix and the only fix that seems to work is deleting my blissx.ini file in the save everytime I want to play a rom on the intellivision emulator. If I don't for example all games do not work properly control wise such as every time I go to play burger time it immediately skips the first intro screen as if I hit start but I didn't hit start. Why are the mappings all screwed up on this emulator? If the mappings were working correctly then I could happily say this is a great emulator but until I get this fixed I can not play much. Can someone send my a fixed file for this problem or please walk me through it? Thank you.

Ooh...
Poor me.
After tasting COLECO, AMIGA and C64 I was eager to learn more about the INTELLIVISION world.
Just got a GOODMERGED set this afternoon, downloaded the latest BLISSX and oooooohh...
The MAPPING are completely strange.

I can't insert 1, 2 and 3 correctly...
Also, there is no VIRTUAL KEYBOARD, right?
I try to call it and nothing happens.

Besides I tried to map 0-1-2-3 to combos like BLACK + A, BLACK +B, BLACK + Y, BLACK +X
but the emulator also does not accept it.

My big problem is --- I can't map ANYTHING to D-PAD since I use Saturn Pads,
and of course, they don't have a analog stick. So, my D-PAD is for the D-Pad functions.

At least some games I can play.
But some not.

Looking forward for a future release...
Maybe one where the virtual keyboard works, then we will be done!

Regards,
Cospefogo.

Also,

Some games are freezing my Xbox on loading.
I tried several times and they ever lock up everything, both in old V5 and in 2007/11's V6.

Names I remember:
B-17 Bomber (1981).int
Buzz Bombers (1982).int
Executive ROM (1978).int

I stoped playing on letter E.
Later I will check more.

Overlays (no keyboard). The intellivision relied a little to heavily on them, but that is what I plan on adding to BlissX when I get around to it.

B-17 and Buzz Bomber are Intellevoice games so they wont work.

Executive ROM is one of the system BIOS files (not a game). There is another, I forget the name.

I don't remember for sure but I also think Bliss had problems with certain ROM dumps for the intellivision. You said you got the no-intro set, though, so that might not be a problem.

Yes, overlays, good.

About my set, it was - FULL Intellivision -- Mattel (GoodINTV 2.03)[GoodMerged].
About the intellivoice games problem, I was aware, but had no idea that
they could freeze the xbox. Also, my set does not identify (in the rom name)
what are those games.

I will check wikipedia and google to learn more about intellivoice and erase them
from my actual romset (to avoid more freezing!)

Thanks Madmab,
Cospefogo.

Only five games:

* Space Spartans
* Bomb Squad
* B-17 Bomber
* Tron: Solar Sailer
* World Series Major League Baseball

Cool.
I will eradicate them now from the face of the earth.
TZIMMMM (Laser sound!)

Done.
No more freezing on my BLISSX.
