Its still at zero after 10 mins

How long does it take to get a mile?

In the in-browser version, it should take about 2 minutes for 1 point.

In the full version, it should take about 8 hours, as per the original game.

Im using the rom on a fpga gameboy core.  https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_MiSTer/wiki

Game works but mile counter isnt working for me.

The rom version is the full version. You need to play for 8 hours straight to get a point. That's a point counter, not a mile counter. It doesn't go to 1 until your first point, after 8 real time hours.

You can download the "short" rom instead, in which case you'll only need to play for 2 minutes in order to get a point.

Anyway to add a mile marker?
