Thanks for the reply. The files I downloaded did have the correct extension but it seems they are LYX files in disguise so now I know what to look for I won’t make the same mistake again. I found an archive with most of the commercial releases so I’m just enjoying playing Desert Strike for the first time. Happy Days.
Just need a new screen next : )
Thanks for doing this and giving the menu screen a facelift. It is much appreciated. I had a lot of problems with .lnx ROM files to begin with with both the original and your boot.bin file. It turns out that a lot of my ROMs weren’t compatible. They worked in my emulator but not in my El Cheapo. The only reason I could find was files that show as 129KB worked where files showing as 128KB did not, same goes for 256/257KB. Is there information in that extra 1KB that enables the files to work?
Using Ozmoo online I was able to create a .d81 image using the .z5 file. I used the target machine as a C128 and the drop down as 81:1581 dive, 1 disk. I tried it in VICE C128 and it worked. I haven’t tried it on my real C128 and I don’t know if it takes advantage of the extra RAM.
I was wondering if it was possible to have a C128 .D81 image as the Pi1541 doesn't support .D71 disk images. The only way I can play it is on VICE as I don't have a SD2IEC.
I don't know how feasible it is but hopefully it's possible.
