CDT emulation
« on: 17:16, 16 December 16 »
I am currently working on trying to load protected CDT tape image on my emulator, such as "The Last Mission", "Marmelade"...

Please, could you give me name of CDT famous for crashing emulators ?

Thanking you in advance

Following another discussion about tape loaders on this forum, there are some games listed on CPC-POWER with the keyword 'Baudload', which use specialised tape loaders that some emulators can't handle correctly:

Thanks a lot for your tip.
I didn't know that keyword on CPC-Power :-)
I will look at them all...

Look at Breaking Baud - that's obviously the best!  :P

BTW, I'm not sure about "famous for crashing emulators", but WinCPC fails to handle direct recording blocks (type 0x15). I emailed Flynn back in 2011 and again in 2013 (when I started work on Breaking Baud) and neither time got a reply. Whilst the direct recording block would have been the most efficient way to store the CDT for Breaking Baud (talking about file size, not runtime performance), I decided to use a different block type instead so it'd work on all the emulators.

Try games like Red Arrows, Dragontorc, Werner mach hin, some ariolasoft tape games like vermeer or they stole a million; puffy's saga, all the operasoft games like livingstone supongo, cosa nostra, guillermo tell, mot, sirwood, etc etc etc


There are quite a number of games.

Thanks @dlfrsilver :-)

I just have left release 0.30 of Caprice Forever at CPC-Power.

Most of protected CDT are loading correctly : Birdie, Blood Brothers, Bomb Scare, City Slicker, Imagination, Marmelade, Revision 2014, The Last Mission, Samurai Warrior, Viaje Al Centro Della Tierra, and many others taken from "BaudLoad" nasty list at CPC-Power.

I will check at once the one you have listed : Dragontorc, Werner mach Hin, Vermeer, Guillermo Tell (maybe the same as Mike Gunner)...
