@Gryzor; If you give me access to edit the page, then I'm MORE than happy to update the ROMs page myself with all the BAR commands required to run the games converted with Axelay, robcfg and Octoate's ROM build code!

Axelay and robcfg wrote rom build code? Is it published somewhere? I've only found Octoate's code.

Axelay's 2 ROM build code that I use EVERY DAY! Also, there's code I use from arnoldemu, SyX, redbox and others too!
Truly, this is a community project! ^_^


EDIT: @Gryzor; Every time I have tried to update the page it has given me the "you do not have access to edit this page" screen... however, with the link you gave I can access the editor for this page! Maybe I will use this in future to update the ROM page! Thanks muchly! ^_^
Actually, upon closer inspection, I still cannot edit the page... however, I do know why, now! I'M NOT LOGGED IN! Duh! Account created and verified! ^_^

Well, here is |ASTRO by Lutz Lubjuhn. I've played it a lot when I was a kid.

Groovy. But wasn't this converted already? Or was that another Astro?

I've only found "Astro Attack" (Astro Attack - CPCWiki) converted as ROM, but this "Astro" is another game.

Nice game Nilquader!!! :)

I always say that we need to give more light to the CPC german catalog, sometimes looks that only tools and hardware came from there and games like those from the "Magazin Players Dream" probe the contrary :)

Now i've tried a 2-ROM game.  Hope this one hasn't been converted already... Here is "Jack the |NIPPER"

Edit: Found a little Bug in the display routine for the startup screen. Fixed.

I don't think it has been done so far, but you can check here next time as almost all games have been uploaded to this page: ROM List - CPCWiki

Wow, this one was hard. The BB4CPC binary seems to be compressed already, so compression didn't help much and I needed 3 roms.

Edit: Small bug fixed. If ROM 3 wasn't found, the system crashed. Now it just returns to BASIC displaying a nice error message.

And here are some more games:
  • |Match Point
  • Daley Thompson's |DECATHLON
  • Bomb Jack (I don't like the 3-rom version that much. I wanted to have something MF Quickstart-compatible. Just playing the first part anyway)

Wow! It's nice to see someone else ripping these games onto ROMs! Thanks for helping out, Nilquader! Looking forward to many more games from you! Top stuff! ^_^


Here's my new batch of ROM files... hot and fresh from the great WinAPE oven (or something).
ANYWAY, we'll start with an olde favourite of mine, THE DEVIL'S CROWN. |TDC will start this 2 ROM game up for you!

EDIT: Another little gem, Loriciel's |3DFIGHT on 1 ROM. Not as good as DUCK DODGERS from ACU, but a worthy attempt! ^_^
(only kidding!)

EDIT: CNGSoft's single file rip of |TOPCAT is next on 2 ROMs. A simple matter of split and LDIR! I love those!

EDIT: |CONTRAPTION is the next game on 2 ROMs. No title screen for this ANYWHERE. Such a shame as the Exomizer compressed file is 17k. Kinda wastes a ROM slot... but nevermind, it's a pretty neat game!

EDIT: Hell knows why I missed this one; I always loved |BOBBY BEARING back in the day... anyway, here it is on 2 ROMs.

EDIT: Finally for now, THE GALACTIC |PLAGUE on 1 ROM. Yes, the mighty one has finally made it onto the ROM board! ALL REJOICE!

I've just spent the entire morning (and up to mid-afternoon) converting the rest of the 3D Construction Kit retail games.

Castle Master - |CM
Castle Master 2 The Crypt - |CM2TC

Total Eclipse - |TE
Total Eclipse Trainer - |TET
Total Eclipse 2 The Sphinx Jinx - |TE2TSJ

The 3D Kit Game - |T3DKG



EDIT: Still got a few attachment slots left... so let's stick |EXPLODINGWALL onto 2 ROMs. A very pretty game... a bit slow and clunky to play... but a VERY pretty game!

EDIT: Filling up the last 2 attachment slots is PSYCHO |HOPPER from Lothlorien back in 1989. Very pretty game, hardware scrolling and a SERIOUSLY frustrating gameplay! LOVE IT! ^_^

Off topic time.. It's suddenly got very busy here, I assume the wrong World Cup is over. Who won? Will it be the Germans or Argentinians gloating in the office tomorrow. I personally cannot wait until the *REAL* world cup next year, and on that note (and Back on Topic) is International Rugby Simulator for Amstrad CPC (1988) - MobyGames possible?

No problem... and with the nice animation on the title-screen, there's no need for a KM_WAIT_KEY.
Use |FMBM to run the game.
