BETA version of OdySim Tennis game

Hi folks!

I've just finished a Beta version of the Tennis game and put it online for those who want to test it out in their favorite emulator front-end. This is only the Tennis game found in the Magnavox Odyssey as it is the most played of all games.

As in the previous post, i have made some few corrections and added other features like Resolution change (from 640x480 to ???? - depending of the monitor/TV screen), a button for displaying (or not) the resolution size, a robot opponent (Player 1 becomes the robot opponent) and another one...

I have put the original sound from M.Baer's Active Card (the second one he made)! I know that the Magnavox Odyssey doesn't make any sound(s) but M.Baer did made a "Active Card" in 1972/73 so that any Magnavox Odyssey could make a sound (better than nothing) but Magnavox rejected the idea back then. Click HERE to read about the Active Card (link to Pong-Story).

I suggest that you read the "Read Me" text inside the zip file for all the details. Just unzip-it and double-click on the "OdySim-Tennis.exe" and have fun! OH...almost forgot! The executable is for Windows 32-Bit version.

Please give me your comments, ideas, suggestions, a 24 pack of Coca-Cola (lol!) by email or on this blog! Thanks and have fun! =)

Hi Nico,

The problem with LÖVE is that i don't know if the BETA Tennis game will work with the ahk launcher script. That's why i've made a BETA version so people (like you) can test out if this
version can work or not depending with which software you'll be using.

So try out this version and let me know about it, thanks very much! =)

  1. Sound and AI are really nice additions!

    The res change is not really useful cause the resolution of the game does not really change in fullscreen, but others might like that. I don't know if a real res change is possible to see the Overlays in HiREs.

    I'd prefer to start in fullscreen.

    The readme states that toggle AI is F1 but its F4.

    Perhaps an idicator if sound and AI is on/of would be nice when pressing F5.

    Don't know if you are aware of it, but the files can not be downloaded from germany - I used an US proxy.

    keep on with this nice project!

    1. Quick question here. I'd read that Baer had created an active card, but couldn't find any details on the circuit that he created. I'm an electrical engineer by trade and would like to try modding an Odyssey card for sound. If you could tell me where you found the circuit details, I'd greatly appreciate it.
