Loading the Game –

Open Emulator, if using Takeda’s emulator (The recommended one above) load the MZT file. If you’re using  EmuZ2000TF from the Neo Kobe pack then use the MTW file. After that simply hit C if it doesn’t autoload.  The game will begin to load and launch. Press enter to start the game. NOTE – The WAV files marked with (Original Recording) do not work on emulators so do not use them, they are just there as they are the original unmodified dumps.

Game Instructions –

Move around with the numpad keys. Tab fires your gun, while spacebar throws grenades. Advancing through the level requires you to move towards the top of the screen and it will slowly scroll upwards.

Backstory –

Acquired this with some other tapes years ago but was never able to get them to load. Years later came across DumpListEditor by bugfire2009 and sent him the files to look at. He concluded that the dumps were good but due to emulator bugs the game wouldn’t load. He figured out a way to process the original recording with DumpListEditor and make it much easier to load into emulators.
