Just FYI, that's not encryption, the high bit is set as an end-of-string marker. The firmware uses the exact same scheme for RSX name tables.

Nice work @dragon  8)

I've applied your fix and also the level 12 bug fix to the XOR version, I did this so we have a version with a Trainer and also so that we can have it in cpr format.  ;D

I have patched @cngsoft's crack of Eliminator and uploaded it to NVG. However I don't have a real Plus machine to test it. :(

Thanks very much for fixing this bug, @dragon!

I don't think is a bug really. Is programed to made a reset if he detect  the bus is not empty in certain cases. I don't know the reason maybe antipiracy, or maybe can be something that during development.They have some device attached in the bus and when he send some signal to the bus they can be force jump to 0000, (but with another rom loaded externally in 0000)  how knows. I don't know if originally the game work with a cpc with crtc 1.

Thanks for this @Nich , is it possible to make the Trainer GX4000 friendly, Mainly the " First Stage " option, maybe make it so can choose with the dpad instead of needing to press a key.

The rest of the options can have 1 for Yes, 2 for No.

I know @dragon does this for level select's on XOR games.  ;)
