I have attached an snapshot, you can hear them easily from WinApe, F7 to go to the debugger, put a breakpoint in $5C46, load the snapshot, F9 to go back to the CPC, and when the debugger appears, change the value from the A register from $00 to a number between $00 -$ 0B to hear one of the twelve songs, F9 and you can hear the new musics during the menu  ;)

Is this the right instructions?

1) Open WinApe
2) Hit F7
3) Goto $5C46 and hit F5 to put a breakpoint in.
4) File menu > Load Snapshot > select "tortugas.sna" > Open
5) Hit F9

I now get the loading screen messed up with yellow/pink/green colours ... mostly yellow ... and a small blue border at the bottom of the screen.
The debugger screen immediately re-appears

This next bit I don't know what to do -

"change the value from the A register from $00 to a number between $00 -$ 0B"

Where do I find the "A register" to change?

I see a bit further down at 5C85 the instruction "LD A,#02" ... does that mean 'load the A register with 02'?
(tried changing that and it failed, just playing the same note one channel constantly! so probably not!)


If I can do this, I'll rip WAV's of each of the songs for everyone.

Cracked it!

On the debugger in the top right hand corner - under "Flags", you want the "AF" and the four digit field to edit next to it.

It should show "0040", change this to "0140", "0240", "0340", etc (you will need to reload the snapshot each time first of course before trying next piece of music)

And wow they sound really damn good so far .... !!!!!

There are even some intermission, game over, etc musics!!!

Hey guys,

Just to whet your appetites, here's one of the tunes attached (#5) - pretty cool stuff!

I'm going to make WAV's of each of them, and I'll be doing a longplay video so will add in the music over the top in the relevant places  :D

I'll also get in touch with the World Of Spectrum guys about the find :)
