Yeah, from dsk works fine here too. But chibi akumas is a RomDOS disc format so I don't think the m4 supports it mounted. So I extracted the files and like vector Vaults you can see the result. Both games play fine so it's not a biggy .
RomDos format is supported.

Will check later to see if there is an  issue with those two.

Which formats are supported aside of Data and Romdos on a DSK file? I couldn't find a "List of Formats" in the Wiki page. Sorry for asking.

Only system, data, romdos (D1/D2/D10/D20/D40) and parados 80.

Any chance of adding parados 41 for 203k dsk images?

OK I spoke too soon. With dsk files vector Vaults crashes back to basic after the 2nd loading screen and chibi akumas ep1 loads the menu with no titlescreen and then hangs when loading the game. Damnit

OK. I have now got the same problems on both 2.0.3 and 2.0.4b5 and on m4 revisions 2.4e and 2.0 I just don't get it. I have also tried with the m4 rom in either 6 or 7 and on 2 different machines.... A 4128+ and a schneider cpc6128 it's the same on both

It may work already? It may be the same as parados 80, just with 41 tracks... I haven't checked.

I tested both Chibi Akumas and Vector Vault, both running from .dsk and from directory.
Both work fine.  I did notice with Chibi Akumas, the loading screen was missing when running from the DSK (will check more when I get time), but otherwise the loading screens were fine, no corruption.
Test was on CPC6128+, M4 as rom 7, Xmem connected.

You don't have any other roms that maybe the issue ?

EDIT: just saw your videos. Have you tried with M4 rom set to 7?... Maybe its something with M4 and Parados.  Nope, tested that too. Works fine. M4 as rom 6 and parados as rom 7.
You have other hardware connected??

Tested both with other hardware and without I've deleted all other roms. Reformatted the sd card on a Windows xp machine. OK chibi now works with zero changes from the video recording gonna check vector Vaults again

hmm, one thing maybe the files got corrupted somehow? Have you tried redownloading the dsks? probably isnt it.

Yeah. Tried them on multiple sd cards they all behave the same. The dsk files work on emulators and when written to disk they work on the cpc and plus.

FAT32? Also just to rule out everything (noticed you used a schneider too). Have you tried another cable?

Would you mind opening your CPC and taking pictures of the PCB?


Just to be sure it's not an incompatibility due to certain chips made by certain manufacturers.

OK.... After a long night of frustration... I found the answer.... |fcp seems be to blame. I emptied the folders on the sd card. Then extracted the dsk files with winape rather than copying them from. Physical media... Everything now nows fine

Good, suppose you copied it from ROMDOS format with |FCP. I'll have to test that sometime.
Also it seems I introduced a bug in the dsk loading, because if I downgrade to v2.00 (didn't try the ones between). Chibi Akumas loading screen is showing again. Will have to narrow that down.

Now to extract vector Vaults with winape and see if that is fixed too. That is a normal data disc so I think fcp has a general issue.

That's quite impressive. Any chance to add Vortex Format (704 KB on B)?

I haven't forgotten about it, was in the process but got side tracked with other things  ;) Got a bit of catching up to do on various bugs when I get some more time.

Oops.. i think I have found another Bug in 2.0.4b5....


Whilst testing some Symbos Configs with Shaun this evening I noticed that Saving Symbos Settings (Or closing the Symbos Control panel) is not possible... It hangs the M4 with the SD Access light lit needing a M4 reset to recover the machine.


On 2.0.3 with the exact same SD card and Symbos Configuration all is good.

Yes! I Just saw! Things like !CTR are a dream!!! Looks like you work 36/9 at the M4 and not only 24/7 :D

Not a bug as such. But is there any reason why protext cannot edit the /m4/config.txt file locally? It is perfectly able to open and save files in subdirectories but with config.txt it just shows a blank document. Does the default file have some weird encoding that protext (in prog mode) cannot handle?

Edit: sorry, all I seem to be doing is reporting issues at the moment. All of which are minor and in no way detract from the awesomeness of the m4 board.

The config.txt file is plain ASCII. Protext uses AMSDOS header for it's files.
Noted the other bug you reported, thanks.
