Continental Circus not working on an HxC
« on: 00:06, 07 June 15 »
Downloaded Continental Circus and transferred to my HxC as usual. Game refused to load. In fact the HxC made no noise at all, the screen went black and my TV said there was "no signal". It was as if the 6128 went to sleep!


The image was a few k larger than usual and the screen on the HxC indicated there were 42 tracks. Copy protection?


The file was downloaded today from CPCRulez and was the English language version.


Never seen a CPC shut down in quite that way before. No video output at all!


Any way to get this classic game working? Are there any other images available that perhaps been cracked etc?


Thanks.
