Multiface II-Romantic Robot on 6128 problem
« on: 12:53, 06 April 21 »
Hello to everyone. Finally managed to own a Multiface II. So far so good. Cosmetically in perfect condition. When I plugged it on my 6128 it doesnt seem to work as it should be. The reset button does restart the CPC, so its OK. The red button though, freezes the game (not all btw), but I do not get the options I should. Here at CPCwiki at Myltiface's description mentions this: In Amstrad Action issue 23 it mentions some incompatibility with some CPC6128 machines and there are some dipswitches which can be configured to work with it. Multiface 2's with this have version 78 software.

[/size]Has anyone face this problem! How could I solve it? [/color]

[/size]For some weird reason when I plug a DDI-1 through Multiface II I get a funny screen. Any ideas?[/color]

Do you use a CPC6128 or a 6128plus? They need different ROMs.

- Well, check the ROM for it's content (files should be in the wiki).
- Clean contacts
- Check if PSU is strong enough

Good luck!

Really appreciate the quick answer. I own the 6128. Next step to clean the contacts. I use the monitor as for the supply. Could you guide me on how to check the ROM's content?

Clean the contacts first, you probably won't need to do anything else.
