Yep, you ran into the "external memory expansions don't understand the Plus properly" issue. I had a suspicion that was going to be your problem the minute you showed your XMEM hanging off the back. Essentially writes to the ASIC will end up affecting both the ASIC registers and any paged in external memory. It doesn't happen with the built in memory of a 6128+ (because it understands about the ASIC) and theoretically you could build an expansion which paid attention to the ASIC unlock sequence and additional paging operations so that it behaved correctly, but I don't believe such a thing currently exists.

Well thanks for confirming it! I had never heard of that as a problem, so it's certainly one to remember!

I've now put the CPC version of the trailer online:

I have to say, this game has grown on me, I didn’t like it at first, but with the updates and a few other additions, mainly the Plus additions, it’s actually growing on me. There’s no doubt if this had of been released back in the day, Amstrad Action would have awarded it ‘AA Mastergame’.

I'll definitely be buying the physical release of this game.  :D Hopefully the 3" disk version when it comes out. I never knew you could still get stuff on 3" disks... is someone still producing them?  :o

Well replied asertus!
It's my understanding that people still selling games on 3" disk are able to do so because they still have them in 'store' since the 90s! from what I hear, *if* you can find them, 3" disks cost 7 pounds each now on ebay.

It's a real problem for selling physical copies , so devices like the dandanator could be essential for people wanting to do physical releases soon.

I just tried to place an pre-order through this polyplay site.
I am not sure if it worked....


I received no order confirmation email. I received no payment notification on paypal. And my account on Polyplay site shows up nothing under "Orders" section.
Has anyone else had issues using that site?
** EDIT: never mind. I worked out I left the site before confirming the order. Apparently I have to click a "BUY" button after the PayPal login.

Now that people who bought the boxed copy of the game are now receiving it, I think it's time to announce the public release of ChibiAkumas V1.666!

ChibiAkumas V1.666 will be Free and Open Source on Oct 26th (in time for halloween!), for the Amstrad CPC, MSX, ZX Spectrum and Enterprise 128.

Improvements over the old Ep1 are... CPC+ raster colors, 2 player support, better backgrounds and general game-engine improvements!

Check out the CPC Version trailer below:
