nice page, but as usual there were no categories, which prevent some visibility and a clever way to navigate into this page...

I added a few categories then.
This also added my name into who did this page... because I love to stole glory from others.

Good call, Some non-CNGSoft ones have started to creep in. Any new conversions from me will be announced here.


Since Quantal does not seem to work on my 6128plus either I am removing it all together. oddly it does work under JavaGX4000 emulation

Well now that you're older you'll be able to finish it with all that extra gaming experience You have.
Old 8 bit games must be easier now we've improved or playing abilities right?   :D

Oh, is  the type of game you have infinite lives, infinite power with all cracks of the world. Yo drop to the space and.... Nooo i can't  jump i have infiinte live!!.. I only can swith  off the cpc and begins for the begining!.

In the other hand if you play without craks you only have 1 live to pass the entire game :). 1! live.

I finished invasion of the zombie monsters some months ago.
The later version was a 2 button joy version but it had extra backgrounds so I made an adapter to play with my SMS joypad.
I know off topic but I wanted to confess that  :'(

Hmm, Bad news with ISS I'm afraid. This one needs you to press 'S' after setting your dumps, so you cannot start the game wth Joysick Only :(


Re-mapping keys such as would be required is beyond my skills :(


unless some other generous soul can do this, I am afraid this one is a no go.

I hate to disappoint twice in the same evening. This one should be possible if @arnoldemu can make a further change to his tool, so that it can boot ith |cpm. At present it needs a physical file to run and not launch from the CPM system tracks

Hmm, which one is it?

At first i tried to convert Emlyn Hughes International Soccer. I was convinced that you could play it with only a joystick as the cursor is joystick controlled.

Sadly, you need to enter a name to pick a team and you need to validate it with Enter. No button on the joystick allows that.

Also, it would need to have at least SPACE mapped to Button 2 as without it, you cannot skip the transition sequence and can lose some precious time during a match.

You would still miss ESC to leave a game and Shift+something (i forgot) to change players -> So not realistic on a GX4000 (i'm very sad of it).

* Then i thought converting Alinka, a very nice Tetris clone, really close to the arcade (when you think it was a write up program, you wouldn't believe it!), but you would need to patch the game to allow selecting 1/2 players with joystick.

Done. Now it works under MESS, even if it has some glitches due to unperfect emulation.

Indeed, I have asked Arnold Emu if |cpm can be added. At the moment I am avoiding any Y/N trainers as they will be a pain to recode / Bypass. If a |cpm nocart tool becomes available I'll do this one.


If anyone knows how to remove, bypass or remap the Y/N in CNGSofts trainers then that will help me no end with my dizzy conversions

My teory is if the Y/N are in a loop(the most probably).The best is search access to the ppi  acess debugging in winape. Then folow the path to the calls or jumps That activate Y/N.

Maybe the best aproach is force a "n" or maybe  forze the call or jump to the "N" path ignoring the Y part.

You need the winape,the z80 opcode manual, the cpcwiki detalis of access to the ppi.the  I/0 table of acces in grimware.The notepad, and a lot of pacience. :) .

With this metod i dissasemble the super sweek until beginning. Only to discover I miss that idiot had .Because i searh modify the levels. And the version disc have a editor levels integrated.

We're going to do, I 'm from 464(without level editor). . anyway was googd experience to learn how cpc works.


For example examining a litte the final matrix trainer The game is in a loop between. 1CDB and 1CDE. When you press Y/n He exit the lop and continue to 1CE0(RET) and exit the call. from here is search the path in the two directions to know where is the bifurcation of Y or n in the code.
