Sorry, only the streamed audio was available.

But I can mail you a Blu-ray disc with its own embedded webserver that you can access on your CPC via your M4 expansion and load it into your MSX MP3 plugin via AMSDAP.

Unless of course you know of a geekier way.....

Except the redundant over-enjoyed comments "never seen on CPC", speaking about classics overscan screens and 50Hz vertical texts and pictures scrolling, it is a nice video as the game looks really really well achieved and adapted to the Amstrad CPC. Great and polished works! Nice to have recorded the real monitor at the end!

I wonder if it would be possible to play from a Dandanator or M4 devices.


Arnoldemu's disk routines are superb, but disks themselves are a pain, and I simply don't have time to go search for an external disk drive, a computer with disk drive, appropriate disk, to play when I have very little time.

I'd just like to mention;

75% of the music was done by RAFT/TRSI.
24.9% of the music was done by McKlain.
0.1% of the music was done by me! ^_^

100% of the in-table sfx was done by RAFT/TRSI.



However, I have been playing this game for THREE YEARS (as an official tester) and I now totally hate it! ^_^

Major respects to everyone at BGGames and the external testers for their amazing work over the three years! You should be proud of what you have achieved here! We (me included) look forward to the official release! IT... LOOKS... AMAZING!

Hi All,


Does anyone know if Pinball Dream preview works with the M4 Wifi Board?  I just get a black screen on my standard 6128 (CRTC2)


Thanks

You are too modest, I would say that 90% of the music is yours :)

Currently it is not compatible with M4 because it uses its own disk loader, maybe it would be possible to make a M4 version replacing the current loader with an exclusive one for M4.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help it a long.
No system/firmware is needed for sector read/writing from/to a dsk image with M4, so if it can fit ie. a romdos .dsk image (~800 KB), that should be easy to make low level loader for.

The Arnoldemu loader works with tracks/sectors, so it should be easy to adapt.I could also try to make a global record table with the internet connection.The first thing is to buy an M4, is it currently for sale?

But why track/sector-loading? Why not a mass storage-friendly solution?

May be, because the CPC is originaly a computer using a floppy disc drive?  ;D

Track/sector is the classic method of loading faster and get more capacity on disks, as well as flexibility to make better use of memory and other advantages such as being able to play music while loading.

Please stay with discs, thats the native medium of the CPC (aside of tapes.... but brrr no!). So please don't expect that everybody is owning and using (predominantly) mass-storage solutions. Actually the only one working is the M4 card anyway. Even it over 500 (I guess) were sold there may be still people preferring real discs.
About the format, use a 3.5" and you can get up to 700-800 KB. IMHO for a flipper that's enough. It doesn't use streaming VIds or so.


I'm looking forward to a nice an polished release.  :) :) :)
