I've tried a series of games that are hard to emulate for a number of issues. The list is this:

  1. Sorcery
  2. Killer Cobra
  3. Tornado Low Level
  4. Mission Genocide
  5. Agent X II
  6. California Games
  7. Stryker
  8. Enlightenment - Druid II
  9. Usagy YoJimbo
  10. Prehistorik 2
  11. Booty

All work perfectly with the latest version of the core

I leave a document in Spanish with the list of games, the reason for its difficulty to be emulated and a download link for each of them.

Juegos.docx.zip

These games were discussed in a program on the YouTube channel Amiga Wave, where they were talking, in spanish of course, about emulators running inside a Commodore Amiga.

I rename ParaDOS V1.2 rom to BOOT.E07 and I move it to root directory of SD card. This rom don't load at start of core, but works if I load it manually from OSD menu. Where I must put this file to load at start of core? Thanks in advance

This part is marked as "MiSTer specific" and boot.* files should be in Amstrad folder.

Core doesn't deal with USB or DB9 directly as i've wrote before. It's up to MiST Firmware.

Ok, I've put two pads and joystick 2 is recognized as joystick 1. So I can play the games.

Current CDT/TZX implementation on MiSTer cannot fit into MiST.

Many thanks to Sorgelig for again doing a fantastic job. Some of the most important cores for me have improved much due to your great work ! Now only the Atari ST core and the Amiga core are left........:)

- Tape input through UART_RX pin (same as in ZX core)

Just to say I tried the tape demo 'Breaking Baud' on my MiST (with added tape input soldered on) and it worked well. 8)

Hello Sorgelig, could you upgrade this fantastic Amstrad core for YPbPr support ?

Many thanks from the community.

I've released the new version.
YPbPr has been added by slingshot. I didn't test it.

This is a little bit picky, but the Amstrad startup screen is to fast displayed compared to the original CPC and the older core. Is it possible to change this?
