I gave it a go and it is very good, well done!

(and hard! :D)

Thank you for the game.
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel, Kitsune`s Curse and Brick Rick for the CPC.

Currently, RVM do not support the X-MEM with SST ROM chip, so the installer fail.
We have mentioned this to the RVM programmer and he has released a DSK with a patch that works.

The X-MEM installer disk is now compatible with RVM (Retro Virtual Machine) emulator thanks to a patch provided by @jcgamestoy . The disk has been updated in the game site.

You can edit the file /m4/romconfig.bin with a HEX editor (on PC maybe) and change the first byte from 0x20 (32) to 0x10 (16), that should do it.
I tried to load the file with a hex editor, but I have never used this type of program.

What would be the register to modify? ???

Hello, in a normal CPC you can still run the cartridge in the M4, the procedure is fully discussed in the first page of this topic.

Good thing to have the PlayCity now.  :) :) :)

Load /m4/romconfig.bin into the hex editor as instructed, not the game file!

Yes, in the end I understood it! :D   

But even after changing the registry in that file, the situation unfortunately does not change.

I restored the modified romconfig.bin file inside the SD card and when I restart the M4 it freezes and does not even boot anymore (luckily I had made a backup copy).

At this point I will wait for the physical edition of the game to try it on the original machine!

Thanks everyone for the technical support!

P.S. - But is there anyone who produces the PlayCity card? Do you know where you can buy it?

I played it on my CPC6128+ with C4CPC and the game is amazing, it's very hard but a lot addictive.


The graphics looked better on CPC +, does this game take advantage of the palette in this series?

This is a strange process...  :-\
Just add the X-MEM expansion to RVM2, download the ALCON X-MEM installer DSK and RUN"INSTALL"

No, it's the standard CPC palette.

If you mean saving high scores and configuration, it only happens in the physical edition in custom cartridge.

Daaamn why did I only see this on Monday?

This looks awesome!
I'll be throwing the CPR of it into my GX4000 later and giving it a good run and will write a few words about it as well :)
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Well for the moment I am not good at the game but I only played with keyboard and emulator.
I will try it with my CPC+.
Anyway I just saw on your page before the credit the phrase about a physical edition with playcity integrated. It's nice, count me in !
Compatible I suppose with all playcity aware programs ?
