Do you get 4.8 Volts on the good working Plus ?.
Yes. The working Plus has is more like 4.6V on all the +5V inputs to the GA. I imagine that's because it's actually working and causes a bit more of a voltage drop.


There was nothing tricky about replacing the crystal. It was just 4 solder points and out it goes.

all USB chargers only supply at most 1A.


Even though they're routinely sold with 2.4A ratings?  ;D

That's beautiful!
The CPC palette is well-suited to this game.
Is he still using the Plus palette or not?  Cos there's colours in there that could work on the regular CPC but then I see three shades of green in the bush in the bottom left when the CPC only has two.

Let the tube stand for some weeks in case you don't need it then it's discharged for a good part.

Could the system be overclocked? For example 5 MHz instead of 4 MHz (Z80 frequency, not crystal). Did somebody ever try?

I had to idea to do it, but the crystal on the Plus PCB is kind of "hard" to replace, it's way more easy on CPC6128.
