Gotek and dsk compatibility R-type Reloaded
« on: 23:24, 16 November 21 »
Hi, recently got an external gotek for my 6128 and in the main it's brilliant, loads most games I tested.


But I cannot get the 2012 remake of R-type to load up. When I type cat, I get the high score screen ok, but when I type run"disc the screen flashes blue to black and then back to blue where it just hangs never loads.


I have tried various files from different sources and also the 3.5" version but none work for me.


I'm using flashfloppy latest 3.29. Has anybody managed to get this game working from a gotek with flashfloppy or HxC?


Thanks

I've had it running on my Gotek with Flashfloppy with no problems.

There are a couple of dsk images of this from what I remember. Make sure you're using ParaDOS if you're using the 3.5" version, otherwise use the Side A / Side B version which has no problem with the default AMSDOS.

No, you afirm something wrong. R-Type was made to run from A or B drive and it works. (floppy or HxC)
Originaly planed to start using |CPM, we have discard the choice because that feature force A drive only.
