It's here  8)

<<<<< GAUNTLET 2 >>>>>

- Joys 1 & 2 full working with B2 for magic
- D & F moved to Z & X (because F & Joy2 B2 are the same key)
- P is pause or cheat mode

Nice one  8)

Fantastic work, thanks again.  :D

I hope you don't mind, but I've changed the Trainer buttons to Button 1 and 2 instead of up and down.

How do the DSK's work in regards to the C4CPC?

Do you mean, how do you convert games from DSK to CPR?

If so, download " Nocart 1.4 (Windows) " from the first post in this thread.

It only works with unprotected disks and not all games work due to how they load etc, also only Single Side 40 Track Disks are supported at the moment.

You will need to run cmd and change dir to where you unpacked nocart too, then run Nocart32 or Nocart64 it will give you an example of how to use it.

Usage: <disk image> <output cart> <run filename>
e.g. nebulus.dsk  nebulus.cpr disc

So for Example, once in the nocart dir, just type Nocart64 nebulus.dsk nebulus.cpr disc

It's pretty straight forward when you get used to it, it's a lot harder when you need to remap the keys, but you will be ok because you have a keyboard with your 464 plus.  ;D

I hope this helps.  :D


I've done a new verison of " Impossible Mission " again, dragon did this before, but I've done a new version with a Trainer, Just Press Button 2 on Joypad 1 to Start.

I've also done another game, this one is " Sorcery+ " This version is the only version that I can find that will work with Nocart due to protection.

The trainer is compressed so I can't change the text, sorry that it includes a porno version  :laugh:
I also can't find the pause button, maybe due to compression, anyway the Trainer Menu is Fully working and the game can be played just fine, just no pause.

It's similar to Questor. Ingame you can change:
3E,2F,CD,1E,BB,C8,FD,CB,50,FE,3E,2F,CD,1E,BB,20,F9,3E,2F,CD,1E,BB,28,F9,3E,2F

by this:
3E,1B,CD,1E,BB,C8,FD,CB,50,FE,3E,1B,CD,1E,BB,20,F9,3E,1B,CD,1E,BB,28,F9,3E,1B

but it's compressed. Maybe if we could find out another crack?

Thanks for that, but we can't use it due to compression  :doh:

I think this is the only available cracked version, at least the game is fully playable and the highscore isn't a problem.  :)

I didn't find the pause in the original sorcery I did too due to cngsoft compression.  ::)

it appears it use a very very similiar(if not equal)  two mag encryption xor and two mag are friends? :D.


program Code begins in 2697.

In  26A8 call AA2f calls decryption algoritm, when program return from the call, the first menu is decompressed in memory. And then it only made a jump where it begins.

Exactly into AA2f, aa86 writes the code uncompress selected to the memory inside the subcall aab8 called from aac7 thats it selected in aad2. it also have the other two mag decompression made in the disk first.

Is the same the wwf wtf.

<<<<< Monty on the Run >>>>>

- Cheat mode (Joy1 up = YES & Joy1 down = NO)
- O & P moved to K & L (to free up the P Key for amstrad plus users)
- P = Pause
- Joy2 B1 = Abort Game
- Joy1 B2 = Exit hi-score

I just tried it on a gx4000-how do you start the game, or is it just cpc plus playable ?

Maybe make it a sticky or pin it (whatever it's called) in the Games Section, like the " Converting a game to ROM - and LOTS of ROM files inside! " for example.  :)

After reading the following in " The Greatest Games You've Never Played " thread, I've converted Catastrophe and The Scout Steps Out.
Owned these, but believed to have not much coverage:

Catastrophe - A 2 player Amsoft game where you play as helicopters making a building out of blocks battling the weather conditions. Brilliant!
The Scout Steps Out - lovely platformer (again by Amsoft) where you play as a boy scout who has to collect badges. The levels are quite big.

@remax

Just letting you know for when you do the pack update.

I've done a new version of " Super Robin Hood " just a small update, the options now shows Y1N2 onscreen.

I've done a new version of Batman 1986 (different disk) main difference is I've included a poked version with infinite lives.
