Prince of Persia 2 for the NEC PC-9821

Post by spaztron64 » October 3rd, 2016, 10:03 am

Nana, who translates a lot of dialogue-filled PC98 games, has sent me the HDI and FDI files of Prince of Persia 2
for the PC9821, so I will demonstrate the first level of that game.

If you want to try it out, just say so, and I will provide a link.

Here you go.

Both the FDI and HDI have to be loaded in an emulator and at least 3.6 Megabytes of RAM have to be provided by the emulator.

I could get it work in this emulator: http://www.zophar.net/pc98/t98-next.html
(In the other emulators I tried, I get an error message about VRAM.)

This version looks much like PoP2 for FM Towns.

No, PC Engine (TurboGrafx-16) is not the same as the PC-98xx.
They are both Japanese PCs though, and both were (co-)developed by NEC.
