So i've just had a discovery: The games extracted for the M4-wifi will likely work too - so if there's a repo out there of games that work on the m4 when extracted from their DSKs I might have to find some volunteers to help me trawl that list


(it means we have a version of gryzor that works without dsk on usifac2 and on 464 :D)

I note this in the original list initial post, that most games will probably work for M4 board too.  :)

Golden Axe fails as soon as I select the characters to play (assuming it fails trying to load levels)
Renegade works fine but has utterly nob controls. I don't know if it came that way, though.
Both are loaded using FM

And vice versa. I suspect most of the 1300 games in https://www.spinpoint.org/M4backup.zip  will work.

From a quick scan, around 99% (exactly 16 are "direct-load") of those 1300 games are DSK images, (so yes they'll more than likely work, but that's not the particular focus of this thread)


the others, however i shall give a go and see what works when I next have significant free time.

So sorry, I looked at the Multi-disc games in the Zip and assumed that all the other games were also files in folders - I didn't realise they were all DSK images.
