Hi, Can someone give me a link for a proper working version of Castle of Dr Creep for my mini??? made several research and haven't found a good one (often the castles won't load from the menu, can only play the tutorial part!) Merry Christmas everyone of the community!
ps: Im French so iif my english is hum...know that not entierly my fault :-)
43 years old gamer and retrogammr from France, love the C64 and all old gaming platforms.
As I mentioned on the C64 Reddit board, in order to get Dr. Creep working, I had to use both the J1 and AD settings. But, once I did that, the game works as it should, on the C64Mini. So, the file name should look something like this:
DrCreep_J1AD.d64 The game will load much slower, but the AD (accurate drive) flag needs to be used to get the game to load properly.
Here's a LINK to the file that I have on my C64Mini. I should also note that, when the game is loading, make sure you answer "D" to the question of activating or deactivating the fastloader.

Here is another (minor) problem with Castles of Dr. Creep: If you load the game from the carousel, it is not possible to save the hiscores. If you finish a castle (level), you can store your (hi)score and save it. But when you load another castle and then load the last finished castle again, your score is deleted. If you load it from the USB, the original d64 file will be overwritten and so the scores can be saved. You can see that in the time stamp of the d64 file. It changes to 01/01/2000. Since the carousel file is a packed vice 2.4 snapshot and write protected, i have no idea how to fix this. I think, setting the folder /games/games from r/o to r/w is not enough. Any ideas?

I'm Don . Having game troubles: I'm trying to play games in classic mode. I'm using dirmaster to load these games to a USB stick. Some play but others no joystick operation. Also , how do I change games that are in a weird graphics character mode, i.e. Manic Mansion and others?

Frank C64: Hi. I have another suggestion for a firmware update: Support for all four disk drives. Since it is already in VICE it should be a no-brainer to add. I would love that feature, as it would make it soooo much easier to work with my old Pascal 64 compiler.

Shell: Is there an official way to swap disks for the TheC64? Other than folders and all that stuff? Tried to find solution but it's all old info...

pantera: Found the solution for getting Mindshadow two disk version to work, _ad needs to be put on the end of the filename and fast loading needs to be turned off. ie. MNDSHDW1_ad.D64 and MNDSHDW2_ad.D64

RubiconVale: Got my mini on Friday. Thanks for this community! So far everything has been working great.

pantera: Has anyone managed to get Mindshadow to run properly on TheC64 Maxi ? The single file version works, up to the point where you get off the island, then crashes. The two disk version will not load. The two disk version loads fine on CCS64
