Andrew Welburn got the original/intended foreign language rom for Atari Lunar Lander compiled from the original Atari source code. It passes the test mode self-test report.

To quote Andy himself

"Here is a working 'foreign language' ROM for Atari Lunar Lander. Burn it and put it into location M3 and set the dips for French, Spanish and German, this is compiled from the original source code and passes the self-test screen, enjoy! "

Cheers

Relevant choon:



I thought we already had this language ROM? Or was that for another Atari vector game? Regardless, this is cool.

The older dump is bad in some unknown way, doesn't pass the checksum check, that's my understanding

It's a bummer it has to be done this way, but better than nothing. If anything, at least it confirms the source code is valid. It would still be ideal if an original, working foreign language rom can be found and compared for the sake of verifying data etc.

As for needed foreign language roms that I am aware of:

Atari Destroyer and Midway's Checkmate.

-
src/mame/drivers/destroyr.cpp

- missing language roms means DIP switches related to these do not function

ROM_LOAD( "030138.rom",0x7000, 0x0800, NO_DUMP ) // optional add-on translation rom


src/mame/drivers/mw8080bw.cpp

ROM_START( checkmat )

ROM_LOAD( "checkmat.d", 0x1000, 0x0400, NO_DUMP ) /* language ROM */
-


There might be others, but these are the ones I know about.

The heading calls it "the world's most accurate moon landing game".

And it just gets more hilarious from there...

I never like that game period. I tried it a few times. Never made any sense to me when blowing up on the landing points zone.
