Hello All.

I've spent several months scouring the internet for a freeware version
of the arcade classic Defender. The only one I found doesn't work on
Windows Xp(I get the error message,"Dsp function not supported."

Does anyone know if another freeware version of this game was made, and
if so, where I can download it from.

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Get MAME
Over 4000 classic arcade games - free.

You can download the binary executable (depending on the type of setup
you want - I'd recommend MAME32 for XP) but for the Roms, you'll need a
burner. The last figures I saw in the newgroup was that a full set
/without/ the largest CHD games, was just over 9gig.

http://www.lazarus.org.uk/ - for burners

Sorry to rain on your parade, as it were, but Defender was a
side-scrolling shooter. The games you have pointed out are all Missile
Command clones.
