Funny story. After seeing this was the game for the month, I found out I sold a copy of Xevious on eBay!

 

Thanks for helping me make some sales Justin!

I have this game for the 7800, but I honestly don't think I've played it more than twice. Time to get on it!

I'll take it!! :rofl: Yea...I wish.  I would love to get my hands on one of those  ^_^ But...I may switch to a Genesis controller doing this challenge however I am going to try to keep it all original hardware.  Atari had some nice hardware with the 7800 but they should have given the Pro-Line joysticks a better balancing point.  It's too top heavy to be comfortable.

Well technically, this should fit the bill since Xevious was originally an arcade game and this 7800 controller is made from arcade parts  :D

Jumped on for about 10 min to warm up. When there is less glare on the TV I will take a serious stab at it.

Oh, I'm using Wii7800 emulator on my Wii and a Wavebird controller. I have the cart but no 7800 to play it at this time.

I keep trying to get the 7800 emulator on my wii but it freezes everytime I scroll to the emulator on the homebrew browser. Any ideas Atari Creep?

I've been playing on the 7800 but the score doesn't show that it's on the advanced setting.
