No problem on my CRTC1, but indeed, one has to watch out when making a fullscreen on CRTC2... Which is probably something the coder overlooked!

Sorry for the problem with the CRTC2.
But for access directly on the main menu, RUN"MENUUK
For others languages :
RUN"MENUFR
RUN"MENUSP

EDIT: Fantastic! Works like a charm. Thanks again!  :D

Spoiler: show
Open face A with Winape and go to Menu File -> Drive A: -> Edit Disc (Check Show Sytem Files) and you'll see "a special file" to run

Nice hidden surprise :). I suck at such games. Is there anything when the level is finished?

I've got a problem with running the game on real 6128 (CRTC2) and Zax Drive (Gotek with Flash Floppy) running from *DSK file.
After starting the game i've got "MEMORY FULL IN 10" error.
Well, tomorrow i will be changing CRCT to 1 (most new demos not working on 2), but i don't think it will help.
Anyone had a similar problem?

@drakon Only a thought, do you have any ROMs connected? If yes, try disconnecting them.

Nope. Just 6128+Gotek.

Well, I had an issue as well, running the game on a CRTC2 with a Floppy Emulator. Not the same, though. Anyway, have you tried the solution Kukulcan suggested? Cause it worked for me:

RUN"MENUUK (English) or
RUN"MENUFR (French) or
RUN"MENUESP (Spanish)

Will try it today. Thanks for info.

EDIT: I've changed CRTC to version 1 today and the game runs fine.

I was wondering if there was a version on 3.5 (no flipping required), or that plays nice with the M4 WiFi? The game starts OK from the M4, but requires changing disk (side), which can't be done on the M4. I've written it out to disc, but then I get weird errors, either with the M4 ROM turned on (a weird "disk not inserted" error without a proper drive label, or "line too long" if M4 is turned off). I even tried extracting the discs to a folder, but that didn't work either (I can't remember the issue, but it didn't seem happy - I think it failed after selecting a character)


I could play on an emulator, but there's something about playing on real hardware that feels right.

Hah, I wasn't warned when I teleport to final level 16, there is no way back (and a save has happened). So I was with 19/20 banners, not having completed fully level 15 when I stepped in the teleport (Now I have to play from the start :P)

Hi there!


Well I explored all rooms in lower part of the map and there is only one field, I can fall down and loose health points there after few steps I have to walk into an stars field, which brings me "upstairs" again. How to proceed? Any idea?

The M4 is only really experimental, there’s loads of games, roms and CPC specific programs that won’t run, but it’s definitely a fun bit of kit...

I did think about creating a list of working and non working until I realised that there’s thousands of games and other software

The very first of course, I'm not familiar with that kind of games.  :)


EDIT: OH, got it! I need to shoot an arrow!
