I am thwarted by a bug in Arctic Fox: destroying Air Converters seems to speed up the oxygen conversion instead of slowing it down. This nixes my goal of clearing all the enemies in the game area (not just taking out the main fort) before the oxygen runs out. Two questions:
- Can anybody confirm this? (IME running DosBox at 1333 cycles, the O2 meter goes down one point per 9.6 seconds at the start, but per only 6 seconds after I take out 15 air converters.)
- If I were to fix this by patching the game binary, would anybody besides me want the fix?
I spent some quality time with debug.exe and made a fix, after which the shots went to exactly the pixel I was aiming at. I still have the patched binary and my notes, with which the patch could probably be ported to other games sharing that codebase, e.g. F15 (1985) and F117. Would anybody want that fix?
