Excellent, thanks for the report NIAD! So I will no longer worry about Zanac.
 
BTW, has anyone here reached the end of Knightmare or Zanac? Just curious... :)


Last I heard, one of my beta-testers made it to stage 6, but didn't reach the boss. :)

If it's an important cheat that will ruin the gaming experience for everyone who bought the game recently, then no, you may not share.

I guess it is the same tricks than MSX version but using the keypad instead of keyboard for the key part...

 

Thanks to the cheat, I just completed the MSX version...    how  can somebody complete that game without cheat!?!?!! ..

After fully inserting the cart into the AtariMax CV adapter, pull it out a little and try dumping again. It took me several attempts to get mine to work. You'll know when you have successful connection and dump when the resulting binary is 128KB (instead of the 1024KB size when it can't properly read the Zanac cart).


Finally got a chance to test this method today, and it worked! Thanks for sharing!

Earlier today, I mailed a couple of test carts programmed with the revised ROM to beta-testers. I will mail a couple more tomorrow morning. Once they receive the carts, they will need a couple of weeks to test the game fully. So we should know for sure by the end of this month if the crash/reset bug has been permanently fixed. As far as I know, the revised software didn't crash (not even once) during the tests with the AtariMax SD cart, which is encouraging news. :)

So this must mean that you/your team were A) able to reproduce the bug and B) locate it within the code. That's great news!

Well, the actual story is more "I think I fixed it, here's the new ROM, please test it while I keep my fingers crossed." :P
