pong-v9 still working?

Re: Pong help and advice
I tried stella, lr-stella (Atari 2600), jzintv and lr-freeinv (Intellivision) emulators, but none of them makes pong-v9 work for me.
I also checked the default es_systems.cfg and it turns out that obviously, meanwhile .bin and .BIN extensions are already entered on-defaut.
In one of the Atari emulators, at least I get these red dialogs from the game at the lower end of the screen, like game color, difficulty level ect. but the game itself won't start.
Am I missing something, and/or is there anybody here who can still confirm that it works for him/her?

@TimZett Recently I tried to get this game running on my Pi as well (Intellivision). I quickly gave up and satisfied my paddle game needs with PS1 Pong the next level and Arkanoid R2000 (the latter has a very nice two player squash mode where you battle eachother like actual squash, where your paddle becomes translucent when it's your opponenents turn).
Edit: I've looked into it a bit more and I think I went wrong trying to use lr-freeintv. (From reading https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/16436/pong-help-and-advice/8 I know now it needs the ECS bios file that is only supported by jzintv).

@TimZett Pong v9 will run on jzintv. I don't recall whether it ran on the version of jzintv included on Github, but it will definitely run using the newer releases. Don't give up, as it's an excellent game! Supports 4 player simultaneous play with jzintv as well.

I know this is an old topic but, for anyone else trying to get this to work.
I have had moderate success with jzintv.
If you have downloaded from http://intellivisionrevolution.com/ultimatepong
Add “.rom” to the end of the file.
Can’t currently get the controller to work but keyboard works fine!
