Videopac 70 is "Terrahawks: The Second Assault"!

Janzl found that game, along with others, in England. You can read the story here:

http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php?topic=1627.0

As always with my releases, the cart comes with an "original" Videopac label, an "original" English manual in Videopac style and an "original" orange Videopac inlay for a plus box.

My first Videopac release was in 2004. Even though prices raised extremely within the last nine years, I am selling the game for the same price as my first release, that is 29 Euro. 100 copies have been made.

Please note: This game, even though there is no high resolution graphics, will NOT run on NTSC consoles. The intro runs fine on an Odyssey2, and the playfield is displayed correct too. But when you start using the joystick, the game will freeze. The game uses so many instructions at that point, that the processor is still busy with calculations when the next Vsync interrupt occurs. Normally the processor pauses for a while before the next Vsync, but when the joystick is used there is no pause anymore, so the processor can't catch up. So for NTSC consoles the shorter duration of the Vblank is not the main problem, but the total number of CPU cycles per frame.

Yup, ntsc too, but I have a g7400 w/video convertor. Thus sign me up for a copy.

For the records, literally, what is the exact release date?

Just to refresh your minds Smiley :

Please note that I didn't have a clue how to play when I recorded this.
Tha game has been tested by quite a few people and most of them liked it  Cool

Sorry about the none-ntsc-compatibility but as I understood it, it is impossible to make it work without completely ruining the game.

It looks like this video file misses the second field of each video frame, as some objects look different on a real console.

Would this be 'fixable' ?
How large is this game ?

I got the feed from a real G7000 and this is the result. I have a very cheap videograbber so I think that is why it looks a bit 'scrambled' as the video misses fields.

The game is 8K.

I grab all my videos with my Jopac connected to my dvd home recorder with hdd.
Recording on a dvdrw, then with my pc go to youtube. I think I grab all the frames.

Yes, that looks like a pretty good way to grab your VP movies. Unfortunately I don't own a HD DVD recorder.  Cry
