Quote from: DR400 on 22:08, 07 December 23Hi, I have 3 CPC 6128's, recently one has developed a fault where my ROMBO ROMBOX and MF2 and 512K RAM board are no longer detected, all 3 work 100% on the two other 6128's.Sounds odd. I would still suspect the edge connector. Are you able to check continuity?
When I run a |manicminer or similar command to a run ROM, nothing happens, the MF 2 is not detected , but the reset switch works.
All the edge connectors are OK, connecting cables all good, so far I have swapped a Z80 from working 6128, same result. Using modern stable 5V 2A PSU (no 12v as Gotek's in use)
What would you suggest to try next? (have de-solder station etc. so happy to chip swap etc.)

But perhaps I played that later when I got my hands on an emulator in 1995. Happy days of hunting around NVG on a command prompt!Yeah, the version that was originally on NVG had the 'bridge' scene (despite being named Doors of Doom on the title screen), but I replaced it with my own version (based on the original cassette version) many years later.

Did Amstrad put a cut down version on the compilation then also sell a version that offered up multiple levels with the desert level being first? It's a tad confusing!
As @SkulleateR has pointed out, there are two versions of the game. Doors of Doom contains the 'desert' scene, whereas Doors of Doom+ (which was only released on disc) starts with a 'bridge' scene.
Doors of Doom was also released on the PP5 and PP8 compilations that some CPC6128 users received when they bought their machines, but it only features the 'desert' scene.
Quote from: ikonsgr on 20:21, 07 December 23Now, can you specify when exactly CPC464 hangs, and what did you do to by pass this hanging?The hangs occurred each time on cold boot, and whenever on each reset if there is usb stick connected. So basically it was non-usable with usb flash.
Maybe i will try it on my "non hanging" CPC464 and see if it also works ok, and then we can update fw with the modifications.
