I'm working on the 64k version of Chibi Akuma(s) - it's going well, and I'm hoping it will be 'finished' in a day or so.

The trouble is, I only own two 6128 machines - I have no real 464 machine to test it on - I'll do 6128 and emulator testing, but it's not really enough

are there any 64k owners (plus and regular) who would be willing to give the a beta of the game the once over on a real machine? you will need a disk drive - as the game cannot run from tape (sorry!)

if anyone is interested, please let me know!

I've a 464 with DDI-1 / FD-1. You can send me a copy for testing too if you like.

I can only test level 1 though as I am absolutely crap at playing ANY computer games.  :picard:

Excellent, I will do more testing on emulator today, and on my real 6128 today, and as long as its still works I will send it today - thanks loads!

There is a 'cheat mode' for testing which I will give you that allows you to start at any level,

All the levels except the last boss battle are unchanged - so if the first level works, so should 2,3 and 4

it's the intro / end sequence and the last boss battle that have been giving me trouble, as they have 'special' code that the other's dont.

Thanks for the offer!

The 'normal' version of the game comes on 2 180k disks, I don't think the M4 can do a disk swap can it?

Do you use Parados, or some OS that can support a 80 track / 360k disk? I will prepare something for you!
