@VincentGR one question, why are your ROMs 16512 bytes instead of 16384? I am wondering how to burn them since they are longer than I expected.

VincentGR

Really don't know, I remove the header so they can be uploaded to M4, maybe this is the reason  :(

doragasu

Then is it safe to remove the initial 128 bytes of each ROM?

VincentGR

Again I don't know, sorry  ;D
Never burned an actual rom for the CPC, I just use the with the M4

doragasu

OK, I will test when I get some time, thanks!

VincentGR

Tell us about the results, I'm curious.
Good luck.

Did a quick test with Nebulus. Removed the first 128 bytes for each ROM. If you are on a Linux machine you can:$ dd if=NEBULUS1.ROM of=nebup1.rom bs=128 skip=1
$ dd if=NEBULUS2.ROM of=nebup2.rom bs=128 skip=1

Then burned the trimmed ROMs on slots 1 and 2, invoked |nebu and it worked  ;D
Anyway I am wondering why is that header there and what is it for

VincentGR

This is my procedure.


I crunch the file if it's big and split if needed.
Then I remove the header with a basic listing, can't remember who posted it.
