  1. My prize arrived in Germany already this Friday in record time! All was very well packed and carts and mouse pads are of excellent quality as you can see! Many thanks again to the organizers of this contest! Next personal milestone is to reach level 3 of Fred!
  2. Damn, I nearly forgot about the contest! So happy to read that I'm one of the winners! Thanks for organizing the contest - great idea for great game that deserved to be played even after 30 years!
  3. Right, SDrive is for sure a solution, but I thought this game deserves at least a nice disk label...
  4. Is there a way to play this game on original hw with 1050? I just realized that ATR file size is about 1MB, so it will be difficult to play with standard hardware. Will the game crash if you split the questions to different disks? Luckily I still have my HDI 3,5" floppy drive so I will be able to play this on real hardware soon, hopefully...
  5. I know the score sucks, but hey, I reached level 2 at least!
  6. Not sure if this has been published already elsewhere here, but a quick search didn't bring up DoubleDos by Arndt Bär, the same guy who wrote Track Copier for Turbo 1050... DBLDOS.XEX
  7. Hurray! I managed to fix also 2nd bug! Please see below correct end screen and new ATR file - enjoy! Major_Bronx_bug_fixed_version.zip
  8. At least first bug is fixed now!
  9. I was playing around with polish game "Major Bronx" lately, which is actually not a bad game, once you understand how to play it. But it seems to have 2 major bugs! 1.) Level Count: looks like the game has only 25 levels instead of 27 which is suggested when reading the level count ("Poziom"). Somehow the game skips to correcty display Level 9 & Level 19... 2.) Once you finish the game there is a wired looking end screen! When checking the original disk there is some text that should be displayed when you have completed the game, but for some reason text is missing in end screen! Btw, there seems to be a build-in cheat mode left in the game, but I have no clue how to enable it... There is a nice walkthrough video in Retromania's Youtube channel for those who want to have a look: What are the chances to get the game fixed?
  10. Thanks for pointing out! It's corrected now for http://mrbacardi.000space.com/
  11. Thanks Jacques for posting cas file but unfortunately trying on real tape seems is also not successful... Loading screen is shown and tape continues loading, but is not starting. Will try again... @Baktra: Thanks for pointing out possible issues with copy program! What copier do you recommend for doing this job? So far I only used "normal" tape to disk copier like "C-D-T Copierer v1.0 by A.Fuchs" or "Copy C/D 54K by M.Thiel" I had successful transfer to real tape with Homesoft's version of "Monty on the run", btw. But this version shows loading screen only after complete game has been loaded into memory...
  12. Was there ever an official tape release made be available? I'm trying to play the game on the real hardware (PAL 800XL and 1010) and copied the xex file to tape, using different boot tape loaders, but all attempts are failing! Like Charlie Chaplin I'm facing the issue that the game crahes after the title screen has loaded and then trying to continue loading. The strange thing is that the cas image on PC is running fine, but the same image on real hw is failing!
  13. Meanwhile I received some cart shells from Sikor and I want to share some pictures... Great quality! new cart & original XE cart new cart with XEGS Repro PCB by WillySoft new cart with original Atari XE Super Cart PCB
