This seems to be a bad dump. The graphics are all messed up. The rom is 192 Kb and the Goodnes is 256. The Goodnes one doesn't have any graphic problems. Can anyone else confirm this?

MESS also claims this game as a bad dump. It would probably be same to assume that it is bad. Would be lovely if someone would redump, of course.

I don't get any messed up graphics. Besides the game was dumped by ototo and bootgod. There is also a Beta dumped at the same size by Skrybe. I guess there is something wrong with your headers.

I checked it as well and I didn't see any graphic corruption, although I didn't play far. Mine's header matches the one in BootGod's database (I'm using BootGod's Nestopia XML, so...). If the game was dumped by two reputable people, then I don't know why MESS would report it as bad, and I take back what I said.

Where are the graphics messed up for you, Anonymous? Also, are you running the ROM image in Nestopia? If not, I would recommend you try Nestopia to see if that corrects your issue.

It was indeed a header problem. I switched the header with the one the beta had and it worked fine. Sorry for all the trouble.
