Not sure if my plus/4 is fugged.. but i cant get this to load from the pi1541

EDIT: My plus/4 is fugged :(

Has anyone been able to get this to run on a real Plus 4 using a SD2IEC?


Nice game - thank you very much!

It works nice under VICE - except for the title picture.

I couldn't get YAPE to work under my Linux and to be true, i am used to VICE.

By the way, the default disk drive in VICE is a 1551. But i could only get this game to work when changing the drive to a 1541. Maybe you could add that to the documentation for the VICE users.

this is unexpectedly nice game !! thank devs.

its another new year's present. :)

but one pity thing is ...
title picture is broken on xplus4 of WinVice 3.1.

I recommend you use Yape rather than WinVice - title screen displays perfectly in Yape :)

thanks !!

Yape worked perfectly. no more broken image !
