Ok cheers  :D

The problem is, when it was first uploaded, the problem about the keyboard was in the comment sections, then the page got updated and the comment for this game and a few other's just
got removed.  It stated that the game worked but the high score didn't.

Anyway, hope it gets a fix.  ;)

woaaaaa.

3034 put cp 00. Thats all. If you search put a letter, i thing you need investigate the code of the cp s around. an the call in 3031 and the hl where it looks the numbers.

My game of the day, p-47 stolen.

pffft  :laugh: Cheers for the fix, I see you bypassed it instead of doing a remap.  ;D

@remax  dragon fixed it before I had chance to sort it  :laugh: Anyway it's sorted now  :D

OK The menu for the Dizzy Spinoffs is no *really* finished.


I have tweaked the code a bit, to make the selector more responsive, and these changes are also copied backwards to the DIzzy Adventures menu too, so that will be better when released.


Anyway here is a sneak Peek at the Spinoffs Menu, let me know what you think.

Trantor: The last stormtrooper

Although the game itself is happy to run on a GX, there are too many keypresses to re-map..... Space on the loading screen, Space on the Intro, 2 to select Joystick controls, 3 to start the game etc... I cannot remember them all now. But if anyone wants a challenge that will bring a great (allbeit hard as nails) game to the GX4000 then this is it.


I'd thought I'd have a look at this today, I don't think it will be possible to do this game.  :'(

The reason being is that you have to find letters for the passwords for the game and these have to be typed into the computers.

Codes from CPC-Power
-------------------------
 ANAGRAMME -- CODE
 ETOPSNMK -- KEMPSTON
 KOSTJYCI -- JOYSTICK
 MCRPUEST -- SPECTRUM
 EFWSORTA -- SOFTWARE
 BEADORYK -- KEYBOARD
 PMTCOURE -- COMPUTER
 STATSECE -- CASSETTE
 CAILRINS -- SINCLAIR
 CARHIPSG -- GRAPHICS
 REDRAWHA -- HARDWARE
 LAMENTIR -- TERMINAL
 ROADSWSP -- PASSWORD

I just completed the game with the Trainer, I got the password CASSETTE which I had to type into one of the computers, this gave me a beam out code of KJX which I had to type into another computer.  :'(

So it looks like this is a no go without a keyboard.  :'(

It's a shame really, as you are right this would have been a great game on the GX4000.

Even without the above problems, the Trainer needs fixing, need spacebar on intro and title to skip mapped to fire and then need option 2 mapped to fire to start, also need space mapped to fire2 as you need to press space if you look in a locker twice or you'll get stuck.

I've sorted out the Trainer, got Fire1 for Y, Fire2 for N, but don't think we can do anything about the other problems.  :'(

oh yeah, stupid me! I forgot all about those codes. Yes, clearly a gx no go.

However.... I have found a way of getting  music working with b-asic....

B-asic 2.1 which I believe is still 64k compatible and switching from soundtrakker to starkos. And it all just works. I love it. But I am not going to remake the spinoffs menu again. My first plus menu therefore will probably be turrican & turrican 2

My games today :D .

Victory road is a especial case, the orignal crack is patched to support joystick partially, is an autentic caos.

So you need first pulse 1. REdefine de keys in pad 1.(left). then press up. And redefine the key in button 2.

then 1 to 1 player up to 2 players.

I am not sure if the toogle button works in player 2, i not know the use of it in the game :P .

If you find a problem tell me. The patch is in test.

4x4 support cheat.

tiger road is full fixed inclusive the pause work with botton pause in gx4000-

What about keeping the "spinoffs" logo also on the selection screen? Maybe on the top left corner or on top of the menu selector.

Well this one is not much... But it proves that b-ASIC 1.1 and STarKOS work together on a 64 k machine (Works on GX40000)


Can someone with an unexpanded 464plus also plaease check this.


Thanks

I can try, but I suspect it will look nasty, as the selection screen is Mode 0 and that particular font will come out pretty blocky, I'll take a look later on and see.

Just done another game " Werewolves of London " it loads ok on the GX4000, can start ok, not sure if it's fully controlled by the Joystick as I haven't played it before.

Another one from me:

Captain America - Defies the doom tube (GO 1987)

it should work, please check on real GX4000 since i can't use mine for now (working on psu)

Would be nice if someone who knows these game can confirm if they work well. I tested both, and i'm not 100% sure how to play them.

What are the keys for YES and No for the infinite live cheat ? I've changed it to "PRESS BUTTON 1" as it seems to me it does nothing.

I have yet to understand your instructions :D ... OK I think i got it.

Toggle is for locking the gun in a direction, i'm gonna test it.

Yeah I think it works...

I'll upload it with heavy instructions...

You know it not work because when you press the button in the second player it not sound, now yes :)

instructions:

So you need first pulse 1. REdefine de keys in pad 1.(left). then press down. And redefine the key in button 2 pad 2(right).

then 1 to 1 player up to 2 players.

didn't noticed it, actually i wasn't able to launch grenades even in winape pressing spacebar O_o

btw easy one here: Fire Ant , it require joystick and only one firebutton needed :)
keyboard is required for hiscore table, but it can be bypassed pressing fire buttons (inserting X and Y). after filling up the space for name, game continue normally
