I had a look at chuckie egg last night but with a hex editor could not find any controls to mod. If this one gets patched i'd love to put a plus loading screen and music on it for a cart release. @Phantomz, you fancy working your magic on the controls if possible?

I'll take a look but I only work with a hex editor like yourself, I  think @dragon would do a better job, I'm pretty good at sorting out the trainers, but he is really good at sorting out ingame keys and menu's.  ;D

@remax  Done a few more games from the CNGSoft website.

Fire & Forget
Krakout
Pac-Mania
Scooby Doo in the Castle Mystery
Shufflepuck Cafe (F) - This is in French, but it's a good game, best with a joystick  ;)

I think chukki egg use amstrad firmware calls as the trainers. but i can add it to my long long list XD.


Anyway,you can play chase hq or the goonies.

Chase hq:

*remmaped turbo to button 2,So you can play directly pressing gear(fire1).
*remmaped redefine controls if you not like the original controls.
*remmaped select languaje.(english ,french).
*remmaped pause to pause button.
*remmaped abandonn to fire 1 joypad 2. As the gx4000 had out of keys ingame in pad 1.
*cheats working except select level 1..5. Thats because the cracker injets the number you press directly in the memory poke. To remmap it in assembler is necesary more espace. So i force level 1 directly.
*rewrite screen keys menu to have help ingame.

The goonies:
*rewrite screen keys menu to have help ingame.
*Pause and escape are in button 1,2 of game pad 2. to no interfiere with the original op,qa keboard array. In pause pause is deblocked with gx4000 pause key.
*button 2 in pad 1 toogle music off and on.(a diferency of new zelan history the music its not very good to the ears lol).

enjoy!.

Have any of you tested Who Dares Wins 2 on a real machine? I tried it today on my 6128 plus and it didn't work. It loaded the intro screen twice and then crashed.

@dragon 

Thank you so much for doing " Chase HQ " mate, it's one of my favourite games.  8) You've done a fantastic job, the GX4000 has a good version of Chase HQ available to play now.   ;D

With regards to " cheats working except select level 1..5. Thats because the cracker injets the number you press directly in the memory poke. To remmap it in assembler is necesary more espace. So i force level 1 directly. "

I noticed that you could still see this cheat being mentioned at the bottom of the screen, it was only for a split second, but you have done such a fantastic job on this, I decided to tidy it up abit, I've now made it so it doesn't show up.  :D

Here is a version without that unusable cheat being displayed (even if it was just a second ).

But i not know the truth so.

An  Arnlodemu case.

you welcome.

I mean about chase hq, The game read the number you enter with a firmware call. He look if you pressed  a number from 1 to 5. if you press the number, he take the number rest 30 and put the number in   two localizations of the memory (He poke the memory directly).

But to remmap he you need transform the codes   0B 08 0A 09 58 5A(joypad 1 codes) Is posible modify the sub to the first four(sub 7). but the five is the problem thats was because i drop it.

who is the 07 and the 0C?.

Cool  :D @remax

I did a version the same as dragon's with the " RESETF2 ", but I spaced it so it's like " RESET F2 " and it doesn't make the screen go up and give a red bar at the bottom, but I think it looks better without the RESET F2 being there, don't see the point of the RESET option on the stage select screen.

What do you think, is it better how we've got it, just the 5 levels to select or do you want the F2 Reset Option on there?

Here is a version with " RESET F2 " for you to check out.

I've also done another game quick " Terminator 2 Judgment Day "

I like the fact to have a reset for when you did a mistake. It avoids to reset the GX4000. I would keep like this last version.

Anyone else ?

A few spanish games, 2 special joystick only versions from Esp Soft (Hora Bruja and La Guerra de Gamber) and 2 straights conversions from the Mojon Twins (Sir Ababol and Uwol 2).

Changes in Hora Bruja:
Fire 1 to jump and Fire 2 to disable/enable music.

Changes in La Guerra de Gamber:
Fire 1 to Shoot. Fire 2 to jump and climb up ladders (you can't use joystick up now).

I need you to test them on real hardware, as I can't do that at the moment.

I had a few minutes spare so done another game, this time it's " Rolling Thunder ".

I also tried to do " Batman The Caped Crusader " I've sorted out the Trainer and the space bar to get passed the title screen.

But I'm not sure where 1 and 2 is to be remapped to Button 1 and 2 on the joypad for the two different games.

Maybe someone could fix this and remap button 1 and 2 to controller 1 and 2 buttons, @dragon maybe?  ;)
