I was trying to get my 'Tower of Doom' on the other day, using the Jzintv (Intellivision emulator) port listed here:
 
http://dl.openhandhelds.org/cgi-bin/wiz.cgi?0,0,0,0,71,311
 
All I could get was a temp black screen, or a hard lock of the Wiz.  After doing some online research, it seems that some of the ROMS don't always start at the same memory location - so you have to include some 'memory maps' in a .cfg file and name it the same name as your ROM (except for the .cfg part, of course).  Once this was done, the game played perfectly!
 
The ROM name is - Tower of Doom (1986) (Intv Corp).int
 
Here's what I put in the .cfg file for 'Tower of Doom':
 
[mapping]
$0000-$1FFF=$5000
$2000-$3FFF=$9000
$4000-$4FFF=$D000
$5000-$5FFF=$F000
 
Now, if anyone finds any more 'memory maps' for games that aren't working, maybe we could make a list and post them here!
 
I hope this helps!
 
Sorry - it looks like I should have posted this in the 'Emulation Zone' - can someone move it there?
 
Thanks!
