Hero Quest 64k DSK Image or Colour Hack?!
« on: 21:51, 06 November 19 »
Hi guys,


can someone please upload a disk dump of the 64k version of Hero Quest?
https://www.cpc-power.com/index.php?page=detail&onglet=dumps&num=1079
 
Or is it possible to transfer the complete tape version to disk?
Thanks!

The disc version uses intelligent loading to detect what machine is being used. So you'd need to put your emulator of choice in 464 with disc drive mode.
As for the tape version, the AA demo is 64k version by default but I'm not sure about the full tape version, I will check via WinAPE

Ah, I see.

I'd like to use the 64k disk version on my 6128, though.

Just curiosity.

Why do you want play a game without sound, with less graphics in the background in a cpc 6128?

The panel is just a mess. The icons are somewhere hidden in it and the grey layer is pretty bad as well.
Shame about the missing sound.

Unless there is someone on here who can hack the game to leave it in 64k mode, then there is nothing that can be done

Or a colour hack would also help.
The review pics are much cooler with different shades of blue and white:

Na, too much red.  :D


Well, I´d really like to see a proper coloured Hero Quest main screen.
Maybe a colour hack isn´t that complicated?!

Ha ha!
It looks perfect imo.
Can´t say that for Hero Quest. I really don´t understand why they didn´t use the colours shown in the review.
