Glad it works ok.  ;)

Here is another update to " OPERATION WOLF ".

Maybe this rar can be merged with the other one if people want them both.

I've changed the order of the screens, it is now the Ocean screen, Operation Wolf logo screen, the Animation, then the Title Screen from the Arcade ( not the original Amstrad version ).


Thanks to Mr. DVG for the Arcade Screen  :)

Here is another game update.

I've done a fresh version of....

" BEYOND THE ICE PALACE "

The new version is the Patched CPC+version.

This has a version of the game with the modified palette for the CPC+, it also contains the original version of the game.

Press the console PAUSE Button or any button on Joypad 2 to get passed the Title and Scroll Screen.

You can't redefine to the joystick by default, however I've managed to get it to let you remap summon to Joypad 1 Button 2.

Due to compression all the joystick buttons will be the same " X " so make sure you remap summon to Joypad 1 Button 2.  ;)

You can always select the keys option and remap to Joypad 2 if you wish.

The game comes with a Trainer, however I have also included a poked version which gives Immunity.

@amijim

Here is.....

" PAC-LAND "

The game is now Joypad only.

Press Joypad 1 UP to insert credits, you need to insert at least 2 credits for two players to work, there are no continues in the game so the credits above 1 for 1 player or 2 for 2 player are a waste of time really.  ???

Press Joypad 1 Button 1 to Start a One Player Game.
Press Joypad 1 Button 2 to Start a Two Player Game.

Pause / unpause game with Console Pause Button.

The game requires you to waggle the joystick from a springboard jump, I thought that this might be a little tricky with a joypad.
You can try and waggle the joypad if you wish, however I've made it so that you can use Joypad 1 Button 2 to help with this.
Run up to the springboard press Joypad 1 Button 1 to jump, as soon as you jump you can hold down Joypad 1 Button 2 instead of needing to wangle the joypad.  8)

Press Joypad 1 Button 1 or Button 2 to pass the highscore table.

I've included a Trainer with options for Infinite Lives and Time.

People need to get over the lack of scrolling on the CPC. Target Renegade didn't have scrolling either, and it ended up being the best out of all the 8bit versions. ;)
I really didn't find the flip screen that off putting on the CPC version.

I don't normally mind or moan about flip screen games.  :laugh:

I agree that " Target Renegade " is a great game, the flip screen in that game didn't feel a problem, however it does feel a problem in " Pac-Land".

I just found it a bit of a problem when I was play testing this game, it's annoying getting killed by an enemy that you can't see on the next screen.  :doh:

They should have flipped the screen instead of having to move your character right to the edge of the screen. Bad game design decisions ruined what could have been great.

I've had a look at this game, the versions that I can find that have the PLUS keyboard bug fix are compressed so I can't change the controls.

However.....

I think I've figured out how to apply the plus bug fix to the uncompressed version.  ;D

Here is another game, this one is....

"COMBAT SCHOOL".

You'll need to plug a joystick into your GX4000 for this one.

Press Joystick FIRE button to pass Title Screen.

The instructions say to waggle the joystick for the first level, I think you need to roll the joystick in a circle?  ???

On the main menu, PUSH UP for ONE PLAYER GAME or PUSH DOWN for TWO PLAYER GAME.

On a PLUS COMPUTER you can also start a ONE PLAYER GAME by pressing SPACE to play with the keys. ( Q A O P SPACE ).

Hello. Do you think it`s possible to convert the bullet hell shmup "Dragon Attack"? That would be so awesome.

Would it be possible for someone to have a look at Grand Prix Simulator from Codies, just doesn't work for me.


Also, would it be possible for someone to change the controls for Super Hang On, having to press up and hold up for turbo is an absolute nightmare to control. It would be better if pressing down on the D-Pad for brake, button 1 - Accelerate and button 2 - Turbo.


Thanks
