You can find the final version here: https://files.scene.org/view/parties/2021/revision21/oldskool-demo/crtc_final.zip

There are not much changes:
- sound and/or crtc transition glitches depending on your CPC version are still there
- greetings logo has been updated
- one logo screen has a palette change

However, we have made some modifications regarding the disk support
- better synchronization with the music for fast drives
- fewer crashes when loading
- 3"5 disc only uses one side; you can still use the one of our previous demos ;)
- 3" disc version has been added; you can then watch the demo on a bare CPC ! WARNING there is no turn disc support. You have to manually flip the disc during the rotating 3d scene and during the display of the very last logo
- m4-cpcwifi version has been added;  there are two limitations: there is a sound glitch when loading files, the demo does not loop

@Optimus it should solve your issues

There are diodes behind the joystick ports to stop this, probably one of them has failed.

I'm assuming you want an 8 pin din cable to scart.  The extra 2 pins on the plus are used for L-R Audio.

@Gryzor Catch your joypad, turn on your GX-4000 and take a nice part of cheese, it's time to throw some fish !

As Mr. Gumby says : MY BRAIN HURTS!  :laugh:

Maybe at @Urusergi , @dragon might sort out the pause and quit buttons and XOR trainer when they have time
The Hand does work on the XOR version, just isn't there when you first begin, start a game and quit or die, you see it there when return to the main screen.
Of course it would be great to be exaustive. But personnally, I never considered a quit key as an interesting feature, particularly when it just permits to return to a main screen without options to modify  :D . Luckily, P is already mapped to pause the game (what is a nice feature  8) )

I'm really happy this game is now available on GX-4000 thanks to you, it's a really nice one. Many thanks!
