    FDS stands for Famicom Disk System. Im pretty sure the NES emulator "FCEultra" can play FDS games, check it out

    The game also looks kinda cool, atleast with 2 player.

    I didnt try it earlier because i didnt find out how to flip the disk in FCEultra hehe. I found out now and i tried both FCEultra and NESten. GFX seems alittle fucked up most likely because its running more than 8 colors on 1 line. The controllers are wierd (atleast with keyboard). The concept is pretty funny tho Its like Tank Bomberman.

    So what peripheral did the Japanese folks use to get the other two controllers connected, since the FC controllers were hardwired. I assume they had to use the 15 pin front expansion port?

    I came across this game in my emulation performance testing. If you know how to compile NESterDC v7.1 for the Dreamcast, and know how to get FDS games working with it, it plays nicely on the Dreamcast. (Do NOT PM me about this, I will not help you, I don't have the time right now) Never thought this was an official release though so it never became part of my testing archives.
