Frankie returns with patched ppi. I only convert it to a cpr, the creators of the patch are urusegui and artaburu from amstrad.es

Big Thanks to the two.

Haloween is coming, the dead return from grave.

How pause the game, put a stone in the gx4000 pause button. :picard2:

gauntlet 2 not need modifiations, the potions are picked and use at the fly. He not have potion button.
 
Daley Thompson's Super Test
Daley Thompson's Super Test is bad converted cartridge not load.

Capitain america not appears use granade in the code, but it have undocumented buttons.

1 an Z made move the capitains america in break dance style. i not sure if it use granade, but best view the entire video: Captain America Defies the Doom Tube Amstrad cpc HD Comentado - YouTube

And i not see the graphic glitch in killer cobra ???.

First off, thanks for fixing Rambo that I converted, thanks to your fix, I've just done a new version with a Trainer

Daley Thompson's Super Test runs just fine on my real GX4000 so no idea why it doesn't work for you, it just needs Enter fixing for Highscore table, you enter name with joystick but still need enter.

With regards to Killer Cobra, I have corruption on the bar at the top and on the main helicopter you control on real GX4000.

With regards to Gauntlet, you do need potion buttons, if you press the potion button keys that are listed, they will make a noise to show you are out of potions, I don't think we can remap these as the game looks compressed to me.  :doh:

1. I hope you can find the Enter key for the game .  ;)

2. I think the game doesn't like the plus range, get the corruption on my gx4000, think it was the same on my 6128 plus

3. Magic Keys are shown on the Player Controls Screen when the game loads, Player 1 Magic = F2, F3, F5, F6, F8, F9      Player 2 Magic = SPACE

I already did " Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters " but it was only one player, as the second player needed the keyboard and the game was compressed.  :doh:

I've now done a totally new version from a different disk, I've remapped all the controls and you can now play 2 players.

I've done two different versions, I've done v1 to use joypads and v2 to use joysticks.

v1 = JOYPAD VERSION

Player 1 Joypad 1
Player 2 Joypad 2

Forward = UP
Left   = LEFT
Right   = RIGHT
Fire   = FIRE BUTTON 1
Bomb   = FIRE BUTTON 2

v2 = JOYSTICK VERSION

Player 1 Joystick 1
Player 2 Joystick 2

Forward = UP
Left   = LEFT
Right   = RIGHT
Fire   = FIRE BUTTON 1
Bomb   = DOWN

Tom et Jerry has an (incomplete) list of games on his site.

Does anyone know of any emulators that actually emulate the Plus keyboard incompatibility? WinAPE doesn't seem to do it for the large majority of games, even when all the Plus-related configurations are enabled.

I've just tested it and it works great in the GX4000 with no corruption  :D

I've remapped all the controls the same as last time.  8)

Yeaaaah! :D

I was freaking out with this patch :'(
cause of mode rupture, perfect synchronization is necessary, you can not optimize anything because it is out of sync with the slightest change, even I can not remove the NOP instruction.

therefore I have discovered this trick, thank goodness

I haven't uploaded the new version of " Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters " that I posted above to the wiki page yet.

I believe a couple of games from dragon on here need putting / changing on the wiki page, I'm pretty sure he fixed " Dragon's Lair " and also did " Frankie Goes To Hollywood ".

I'll reupdate as soon as i'll have time

@remax No need, I had a bit of free time today, so instead of doing another cpr, I thought I'd update the wiki page.  ;)

As of today, everything should be up to date on there, for now anyway.  :)

Now that the Graphics Corruption is fixed on Colony, I've done a poked version too which includes Infinite Shield and Infinite Laser.

Yes, the game is complete, I completed it to test it, even has the ending  ;D

Give it a play test to the end, it's got a trainer  ;)

176k that maybe, but it works fine, maybe due to cngsoft compression.  8)

I'm not sure how or what compression they use, but some games you can find keys to remap and others you can't , just got lucky with that game.

I mean look at the first version of ISS you did, we can find all the keys to remap apart from the space bar to select the plates, but we can't find that due to compression.

@dragon

I know that " Sergeant Seymour Robotcop " need fixing for the plus, someone asked for the Seymour games and that was the only one I couldn't do.
