Hi Duke, please, when I use the romup464.bin I get basic 1.1 and lowrom in english, how can i get the spanish layout?, if I use the m4low-sp.bin I get spanish but romnumber changes to 6 and I lose compatibility with games, If I change rom number to 7 the m4 board don't work.

@Duke : I investigates lot's of demos/games/etc. Looks like, that only programs for the Plus are using the special out commands.

Therefore it would be great (and most easy) that the wonderful M4 card just ignores the two out commands (OUT &7Fxx,&A0 or &B8) regarding RAM/ROM banking.

This would render the M4 card fully 6128plus compatible.  :) :) :)

I only made an english build for CPC basic 1.1, the other installers are meant for CPC6128 and using the modified lowerrom which needs M4 rom in slot 6.
You can manually upload the Basic 1.1 and Lowerrom from a Spanish CPC 6128 instead.
If I find some time later, I will compile a spanish version aswell.

That sounds good, then this build of M4 firmware should be just fine to use:
