    Nothing seems to get this game started. There's only Button 1, Button 2, Coin, Left, and Right.Pressing Coin (either 11 or 12) just resets the attract mode. Please help. :(

  • @Mebejedi Yeah, I don't think that game is in lr-fbalpha anymore, or at least not officially. Pretty sure I had an issue with it as well.

    I switched to lr-mame2010 as that was where it ran the best out of my choices of lr-fbalpha, lr-mame2003-plus, and lr-mame2010.



  • @MajorDangerNine , didn't think to try a different emulator. (I monkeyed with 2003+ for a bit, but was having issues that may or may not have been related, so I removed it for now and am sticking with FBA.)

    So, how does the game normally start? After entering a quarter?



  • @Mebejedi Well, in lr-mame2010, after you insert a coin, the screen is cleared of the demo, then you can move the ship at the top left or right and fire depth charges left or right, while a sonar sound effect is played and submarines move about below.
