Scramble Game Maps from the Arcade

Scramble was released for the Amiga too. But the true arcade feelings of this 1981 classic was never beaten by any conversion.

So here are - after intense work - the level maps of scramble using 1 of the 8 possible palettes.

I soon open a website about some arcade games I played when I was very young and still play them today with MAME.

I made all the Level Map conversion with my Amiga. So I have all graphics and palettes already there. The Sound FX ??? No idea where to get them.

I hope I can find the time to start with scramble

I have downloaded a reverse-engineered game source code.

I can rip the sounds from MAME. Just shut down the ambient sounds with the debugger, I can rip the sounds without any background loop It works.

Some sounds I already pushed in my git repository https://github.com/jotd666/scramble500/tree/main/assets

Can you explain how you obtained the maps? I see a lot of data in this .asm file but not making a lot of sense to it. Looks that 6 bytes per 16 pixels width containing height, tiles and optional missile / fuel, encoded somehow (xx height xx height something object_type I guess). If you have some info, please share.

My plan would be to remake this 1:1. I saw the amiga versions of Scramble that looked poor...

ok, definitely doing this. First very early screenshot. Mountain is rebuilt from tiles, not from static image (that would be cheating otherwise)

Used hajodick images to compute 8x8 tiles placement and spriters resource for the ship and the rest.

Now I have to implement the x scrolling. I have never done this. Should be a piece of cake. LOL.

Cool project! I play this at my local arcade. So hard! Only got through the base once (it then starts again but your fuel drops quicker)

the part with the tunnels where you have to go up and down very quickly is the worst. The rest is fair and not too taxing with a bit of training.

Yer you have to be so precise there and move forward as far as possible then up/down with back diagonal held so you move vertically if you follow (probably not hah)

I play it on my Pi at home but bit of input lag there (my excuse), native arcade version on the Amiga will be excellent!
