Anyone make it past all the screens or is it endless?

It is possible to complete the game.

Chris, what is missing to get these working with music on Harmony?

Hi Thomas,

There are two issues:
  • The bankswitching code is not designed to run directly from the Harmony menu - it will currently only work when flashed direct.
  • The tunes and high score table use the EEPROM, which is where the Harmony bankswitchoing files are stored.
Both issues can be worked around with a bit of effort - the EEPROM in the harmony is much larger than required (so the data can be relocated to a higher address) and the bankswitching code can be modified to star from the menu.

I won't have time to work on either issue for a while though I'm afraid.

 So the 'full' ROMs do work, just without the music.

Hi Stephen

Thanks for clarifying - I knew you had done work on this, but was not aware CTY bankswitching was now available in Stella.

For completeness, here is the (fixed) source code and ROM images for the cutdown "GameBoy" edition of Chetiry. This version was released as an april fool back in 2011.

Thoroughly enjoyed that. I can't find Vol 1, in the UK. I keep hoping for it to appear on ebay, but no luck so far.
Will check out your link, thanks.

Vol1 is on Amazon UK: https://www.amazon.c...aw/d/1980969396
