Quote from: SerErris on Yesterday at 15:21I am sure you changed the background color from blue to black (and the border color), right?
Just asking because I wondered as well and after setting it to black (and white font color) it was much better...

Yes, I tried playing some games that have black background.

The new patch from @Urusergi is for a classic we all played (or tried to play) in a compilation or another :P :

CRITICAL MASS from Durell

Controls:
J1LEFT/RIGHT = Rotate left/right.
J1UP = Accelerate

J1B1 = Fire

Modifications for the GX4000 version:
    - Colours on title screen fixed,
    - Wait for fire on title screen,
    - Modified main menu including difficulty level selection,
    - A version with inverted colours (darkest colour as background)
    - Pokes: Unlimited energy and time.

Cheers everyone!  ;)

You can do this: Get a CPC to RGB scart cable, then change it to connect the LUM (pin 6) to GREEN on the SCART, and leave blue and red unconnected. I tried this and you get the true 16 level green screen and a good, deep black.

Also you can try other combinations to get other monochrome screens with red, yellow, etc...

(of course this is with a scart color TV)

Quote from: Neville on Yesterday at 14:00I don't want to be a pest, but I just thought of another request for ZesarUX: TZX tape support for the MSX1.

You probably know about it already, but it's a new-ish tape format much more faithful than the old-fashioned CAS. It's inspired by TZX for the ZX Spectrum.

Also, I have a question. Why keep the Amstrad 4128 machine? I thought it was a way of enjoying the perks of 128k when the 6128 wasn't emulated yet, but now that it is... well, what's the point?


I find the 4128 interesting if it's faithful to how the actual machines handle the expanded memory (like how RAMDIS signal actually works in both machines, making write-through in 464 but not in 6128). That's interesting to test software aimed to custom hardware designs. Also I find interesting to add the cartridge support for the CPC range.

And the top would be to emulate the M4 board using the computer network connection, so I can make Amsteam compatible with it.
