Quote from: Mr. DVG on 18:26, 27 October 19Hello 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 HomeBob WinnerDouble Dragon "good version" (run, but small graphic bugs at the top and bottom of the screen)Eagle's RiderFiendish Freddy's Big Top O' FunFres Fighter II TurboExterminatorGalaxy ForceImperial MajongLittle Computer People Discovery KitMega Twins (Demo)MegablastersMegablasters: Escape from Castle in the Cloud MysticalOrion PrimeTarghanThe Bard's TaleThe Shadows of SergothWonder Boy (Tried all the dumps. They work, but there is a random bug that corrupts the soundtrack. It happens only on the M4.)Xyphoes FantasyDEMO: 30 Years Amstrad MegademoBatman ForeverPheelonePhortemPhreaks
Quote from: Mr. DVG on 15:32, 03 November 19At 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.
Quote from: Duke on 20:26, 04 November 19Thanks 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.And thanks for sharing, I will put the link in the M4 documentation!
Quote from: Ast on 22:24, 09 November 19Hi ! Can some people tell me if it is possible to send files into mail from m4 ?Thanks.

Quote from: Duke on 21:44, 28 October 19Ok, 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/
Quote from: dimdim80 on 15:33, 27 September 20I 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.
Quote from: Duke on 20:05, 27 September 20Try the versions from here, they are almost guaranteed to work:http://cngsoft.no-ip.org/cpc_lzx.htmBut tbh. it sounds like you may have some other issue, have you tried connecting ONLY the M4 board and not other peripherals?
Quote from: dimdim80 on 20:53, 27 September 20And again refuse to play.But from the site link you gave me works ok.So i guess it is the dsk file problem?
Quote from: GUNHED on 21:47, 18 January 21Hi there,The M4 card used this ports:DATAPORT is 0xFE00ACKPORT is 0xFC00Are they fully decoded?Does it use other ports too?
Quote from: Duke on 13:26, 19 January 21They are fully decoded, no other ports are used at this time.
Quote from: GUNHED on 15:30, 19 January 21On the 6128plus the ASIC needs to be fed with 17 bytes to activate its features. After that the command:ld bc,&7f8b:out (c),cwill activate the memory mapped I/O between &4000-&7FFF.On the M4 card this OUT does in addition switch off the upper ROM! Which causes a crash in some cases (FutureOS f.e.). But this OUT is NOT supposed to alter the ROM/RAM status.How to fix the problem?I'm not a hardware person, but with other ROM expansions there are not problems.An idea would be that the M4 card shall ignore commands like: OUT &7Fxx,&B8 and OUT &7Fxx,&A0 (they are used on 6128plus for switching memory mapped I/O on and off).
Quote from: tjohnson on 17:26, 19 January 21This looks great, is there an English language front end available?
Quote from: jaimebueno on 10:18, 24 January 21Hi 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.
Quote from: GUNHED on 22:36, 24 January 21Back to topic... @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.
