operation wolf done
Too bad nobody has patched it to run with plus gun.

It need redefine the keys first,if you want locate the default keys phantom put a breakpoint in 1fD1 There the options 2 begins the next 3 calls.

Wow that was quick  ;)

I've only tried it with emulation, but I don't think that version likes nocart, the first level doesn't start with winape and it just resets in mess emulator.

@dragon
Any chance you could help me finish the Nicholas CAMPBELL version ?

I've converted the game to cpr, I've sorted out all the trainer, I just can't seem to find the menu buttons, these need mapping to the controller buttons 1 and 2 then the game is done.  ;)

Trainer = 1 for Yes , 2 for No
Level Select: Fire 1 = 1, Up = 2, Left = 3 , Right = 4, Down = 5

I've just completed the game on my plus machine so all works ok  ;)

If is the same the hemol version you  need:

menu key.
--------------
go to 1fda: changue The LD A(#3ffe) to 3fff


1fed->changue the and x to and 10.
1fe3->change the and x to and 20

esc key ingame to pause in gx4000.
----------------------------------------------
2221->Chngue the ld A,(#3fxx) to 3ff9

2224->changue and X to and 08

The explanation is:
-----------------------------

behind the and comes a bifurcation. Is activated by the flag z.

The flag z is activated by the and, when A and number = cero. flag z is set.

To made a and b cero to the key you want. Yo need find the oposite number to the hex code of your key. Example with windows

calculator  example FB=11111011(in binary) oposite:00000100=4  A(FB and 4=0) flag active jump with your key.

The ld line is the keyboard matrix line in memory. line 00-09: Programming:Keyboard scanning - CPCWiki

where 3fff is the joystick line, and 3ff9 is line 03(p key).

Thanks for the advice, I can do the changes in the winape debugger, but can't find them in the cpr in a hex editor.

For example, I need to change 18 3A FE 3F E6 04 to 18 3A F9 3F E6 08 for the pause button to work.

The version I have done is compressed so will need to look for another version, that isn't.

I just tested everything on the original disc and everything works fine but we can't use that with nocart  :'(

I can't seem to find a version that works, they either are compressed, or not supported in nocart due to protected tracks on the disc.  :'(

Thats because the hacker was bum, he desactive the copy protection, but he leave it phisically in disk. I remember is the case in the micky mouse.

In these case try this:

Open a new dsk with cpc disk editor( CPCDiskXP - Escribe y lee discos del Amstrad CPC desde un PC )  and push the button add files from another dsk. Select the hacked dsk with the copy protection. Select all files and put all in your dsk.

Now try your new dsk in winape.if it works its o.k and without the phisically copy protection.

This is the aldoreset version in new dsk.

@dragon

I just can't seem to find a copy that will work, if they are compressed we can't change the keys, if the disc is protected we can't use.

When I have managed to change the keys with a hex editor, the game will not load the first level like on your plus version, does the game have Direct access to disc for loading ?

I think it might as the drive light on my keyboard is flashing when it tries to load in emulation.

I used the disc you posted above and remapped the keys, we have the same problem as the plus version.  ???

Nope,are anticopy  and complicated cracks(the new dsk not work :( ) don't work well with noscart.

Plan B: When all fails take a look at the compilation comercial disk.

micro club : cabal, operation wolf &copy micro club (1991)
micro club : cabal, operation wolf &copy micro club (1991)

solved (at least in emulator).

I tried that disc too, it will not work as a cpr, this is why I believe operation wolf uses Direct access to disc for loading which nocart doesn't support.  ???

But you are speaking in emulator or real hardware?., because it works in my winape.

In real hardware is easy to chek, Put the cpr in 6128 plus, and the dsk in the fdd, if it loads the game from the fdd and works he have direct access.

Ahhh o.k o.k I know why i was wrong. I have the dsk into winape at the same time of cartridge, thats because it works for me . Yeah it have direct acess sure. You are right.

well,another game to the wall of failed hakings because direct access fdd  :).

Well at least we gave it a good go, we can only work with what's available to us, this is why it's hard to do some games people want, it's not just a case of remapping keys.

I've uploaded the disks here with the menu keys remapped to the joypad and the pause button mapped, as someone on here might be able to crack the game so it doesn't need direct disc acess, it's possible because the version I did with the trainer works fine, we just can't remap the keys due to compression.  :doh:

I've included the original version of the game and the plus patched version.

 :D You Crazy Fool!  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

The game dragon has posted above is " The A Team " for people that want it.  :D


Here is another game from myself, it's not great but another game for the gx4000 at the end of the day.

It's " Road Blasters " I can't change the onscreen text due to compression.

But the trainer works, button 1 and 2 for option 1 and 2, option 3 works with the Pause button on the console.

Just done another, this one is " Winter Games ".  :)

Joypad 2 Button 1 = Move through the options
Joypad 2 Button 2 = Select option

Joypad 2 Dpad select number of players 1 = Up, 2 = Left, 3 = Right, 4 = Down

To enter your name/s, you can press the console pause button for p then the joypad 2 dpad for number,
then Enter with joypad 2 Button 2, So you could enter names as p1, p2, p3, p4 etc if you wish.

I've been away for a few weeks and now I found Renegade? Brilliant, and awesome control scheme too, I actually prefer the nunchuck one over the classic joystick + keyboard. Thank you guys, one more time, you are awesome!
Tricky Op. Wolf, but never say never! Please consider Beyond the Ice Palace for the future (it's really awesome on Amstrad, colourful sprites and explosions, puts the c64 version to shame) and thank you one more time! Now, time to play Renegade 'till tomorrow  :D
