Hello everyone!
I open this thread because I am exhaustively trying out many titles for the M4 and I am finding that some of them are unfortunately not compatible. I do this to entice the production of dedicated versions (for mass storage) that can work with this card and thus decrease the incompatibility list. These are some of the incompatible titles, but the list will certainly grow over time! Maybe let's update it together if you want!  ;)

GAMES:
  • Baby Jo - Going Home
  • Bob Winner
  • Double Dragon "good version" (run, but small graphic bugs at the top and bottom of the screen)
  • Eagle's Rider
  • Fiendish Freddy's Big Top O' Fun
  • Fres Fighter II Turbo
  • Exterminator
  • Galaxy Force
  • Imperial Majong
  • Little Computer People Discovery Kit
  • Mega Twins (Demo)
  • Megablasters
  • Megablasters: Escape from Castle in the Cloud
  • Mystical
  • Orion Prime
  • Targhan
  • The Bard's Tale
  • The Shadows of Sergoth
  • Wonder Boy (Tried all the dumps. They work, but there is a random bug that corrupts the soundtrack. It happens only on the M4.)
  • Xyphoes Fantasy
DEMO:
  • 30 Years Amstrad Megademo
  • Batman Forever
  • Pheelone
  • Phortem
  • Phreaks
In the first post you will find the updated list of non-functioning games on the M4.

At the moment I stop here, having tried hundreds and hundreds of titles for Amstrad CPC! Attached to this post I insert a downloadable .zip file where I have collected more than 1300 titles tested and working on the M4.

Inside the file you will also find the list of titles and other useful files such as various configurations, the SymbOS and the "famous front-end" of rafa 32.  ;D

Thank you all for your cooperation!  :-*

Thanks for your dedication, that is an impressive amount you have tested.

I will probably go through some of the games in your first post when I find time.

You'll need a mail client on the CPC for that.


Time for iMPMail?  :D

Thanks.

There is a mail tool WIP for Symbos, I don't know if this is what you are looking for?

backup since link is not working anymore.

Thanks for reporting Duke, I will continue to report non-functioning games with the M4 in the first post of the topic (my work continues and in a month I will post a new update).  :)
Also in the first post I changed the link to download, this time on MEGA, which seems much more reliable!  ;)

Ok, here is a modified lowerrom installer I just made. It is for CPC 6128 and it is the English lowerrom it installs.

Just copy the file to your microSD card and from Basic:
RUN"M4LOW-EN.BIN"

It will ask you to press M4 reset (or power cycle) when it's installed.

If anything goes wrong, put the microSD card into a PC and delete from folder M4 the files ROMCONFIG.BIN and ROMSLOTS.BIN to set it back to default settings.

If everything goes as planned it should have installed the modified lowerrom into romslot 31 and you can run all the games (almost) \o/


I did as you explain,installed with no errors and still cannot get after the initial screen.Tested Roland in time,Roland in space,Rick dangerous,Rick Dangerous 128+ Remake,Rick dangerous 2.

Try the versions from here, they are almost guaranteed to work:
http://cngsoft.no-ip.org/cpc_lzx.htm

But tbh. it sounds like you may have some other issue, have you tried connecting ONLY the M4 board and not other peripherals?

This DSK is copy-protected (no BC77 use), so it cant be run from M4-Card (/MassStorage's)
Please use another DSK
