Well done! I found endings 2 and 3, if you think carefully ending 3 is easy to find. ;)

Quote from: Narkhos on 20:42, 06 April 24I published a new version with the patch (version 0.8.1). If you give it a try, let me know if it works for you :)
Sadly, it still doesn't work. I can see that I can enter Basic commands when the game stops. I try to change the inks to see what could be the error message but it doesn't work :). Ink 1,26, mode 1, I cannot even see the Basic text. What trick did you use to hide the prompt? :)

I didn't use any trick ;D . I'm loading a custom charset from a file, so maybe it messes up the charset if it does not load properly?

Do you know on which rom your amsdos is loaded? I saw on unidos installation webpage that it could be on rom 7 but that it is recommanded to put it on rom 15. I assume it depends on the rom card you use.

If you know the rom, I can compile a version with your specific configuration in mind to see if it works.

But maybe the physical rom board can't work properly if we load only amsdos rom.

Unidos is ROM 7, with the M4 Board node in ROM 8.

I played it on an emulator, couldn't resist :).

So far it's a great game. My problem is that I cannot "reset" the cauldron. I try to make the old man sleep, but after making the invisibility potion, I'm unable to perform it again, or any other. I try stirring the waters, waiting, turning on and off the oven, but it always takes strange colors :). What am I missing?

Thanks!

I really don't understand why it does not work. Unidos doc says it is compatible with amsdos, so it should behave identically. I still investigate but I don't have any way to simulate your exact issue on emulator :(

The first recipe in the book gives an hint on this ;)
The verb you need is "attendre" when the fire is turned on. You have to wait until the water become white, then turn off and wait it cools down to blue

Edit: The liquid have 5 levels of temperature, so you have to wait several time until the temperature reach the "white" state to reset the recipe

Damn, I must be stupid. I don't understand the "transpose" thing. From the first example to its transposée, I see that "salt" becomes "berry" and "berry" becomes "pepper". So I change the "stimulant" recipe according to these rules (only the first one applies), but it doesn't work :(.

From the first example, Step 1 becomes Step 3 when transposed. And Step 3 becomes Step 1.
But there's a catch : you must use pepper instead of salt !

To transpose, just replace salt by pepper then change the order so pepper take place of berry in the recipe and berry take place of the seasonning.

Here is the soporific recipe with this process :

- jaune : menthe
- orange : poivre
- jaune : mélanger

Thank you both, I've manage to continue the game. I've found two "endings" ("tuer le créateur" and "tuer Nahash"), none being particularly positive :). I'm a bit stuck as to what to do now, but I'll try!

Have you found the poker (tisonnier)? It has a special use...
Also, have a close look at  the left wall here :

I finally managed to get unidos to work on an emulator. I think I've fixed the problem.
I've released a new version with the fix (v0.8.4). If you get a chance to test with your configuration, I'd really like to know if everything is now working properly on your machine :)

Targhan

@Narkhos It is working on my CPC, thanks!!! Without surprise, it looks even better than an emulator. I probably won't play in on a real CPC since it has no savegame :(. But I'll continue my game on emulator and is dedicated to finishing it :).

Good remark about how important is to have some kind of savegames or level codes, etc.. is in today's games. Lack of time, etc..

Thank you for your feedback! Are you using an original Amstrad cpc screen?

@asertus I will try my best to add this feature, but I'm short in space both in memory and on the disk. Not to mention that I don't yet know how to save to disk from a c/asm program  :laugh:

Quote from: Narkhos on 20:29, 19 April 24Thank you for your feedback! Are you using an original Amstrad cpc screen?

Yes of course. Weren't the graphics drawn on a real CPC?

As for the savegame, since I guess there aren't a lot of data, you could encode them into a bitstream and displayed as hex (plus a checksum to prevent cheaters and typos). @awergh did something like that in his latest game, maybe he could help.

I didn't create the graphics directly on cpc. I drew a pencil sketch on paper and then redrew it by hand in pixel art using Photoshop. But yes, I also have a cpc with its original screen and I was able to check the rendering on it during the process :)

Quote from: Targhan on Yesterday at 11:04you could encode them into a bitstream and displayed as hex
Yes, it's a good idea, I just need to check that it doesn't require overly long codes. ^^
