Chris!

I got this while programming something one day and I thought it was funny so I took a screencap of it. Too bad I'm not running for anything.
All my Odyssey2 projects, now in one place!

Maybe your console is running for President  :P

They just gosub without return.

Pickaxe Brad!

Want to experience this in your O2 emulator?  Try out this BIOS ROM!
What happened to Odyssey Game Maker?  It's been 5 months since it was announced.  Still no download link!

Doesn't work for me. Nothing happens.
I'm using o2em-1.21. Also tried 1.18.
Renamed your BIOS ROM file to o2rom.bin and replaced the original bios file.
The emulator just shuts down on startup...

With o2em-1.21, I've been successfully running it like this:
   o2em.exe -bios=bios/o2rom_ElectMe.bin

We still have some time before election season, but hopefully it'll now work for you by the method above.
But, yes, when I tried doing what you described, it failed the same way as your did.  Maybe it failed because a checksum didn't match?

I already tried the method you described.
Also tried all compatibility settings.
Same result, nothing happens.

I tried both NTSC and PAL games.
Running Win10 64-bit.

The standard bios works flawlessly with all games.
Did you use any commands that need specific hardware/software to run?

Hmmm... That's odd.

I didn't change any commands at all.  Just changed three characters in Select GAme into spaces so it says " elect   me", like Chris! got to see.  But I suppose that's electorial politics for ya...it's always some sort of hassle.
