I have noticed that if I connect two usb gamepads, the second acts correctly as the main joystick.

I reiterate a previous question, will there be support for the load from audio? The spectrum core has it and it is a great addition

Thank you for you great job

So maybe useful an option to exchange the joystick ports as on C64 core.
I use only one usb gamepad for MiST.

Old Amstrad CPC 464 and 6128 have only one port joystick, the second one must be connected to the first joystick which has a through port.

From Scratch issue has been fixed. There was tetris part which wasn't visible and also has been fixed.

Great news on the CPC updates.
I wonder if the tape loading feature from the ZX Spectrum Core is easy to add (connects through midi connectors?)

This is a very impressive demo which streams from tape:

Great update of CPC core! Thank you for extension of quantity of OSD options on firmware level!

For those who lost at MiST Wiki in search of new: latest firmware can be found at https://github.com/mist-devel/mist-bina ... r/firmware , rename *.upg-file to firmware.upg, copy it to root of memory card and use update via system menu of MiST.

Create eZ0 extension with 464 ROMs and FF in ROM page 7 and load it in 664 mode.
You will get 464 mode.

Give me links to games not working in 664 mode.
It's hard to believe there are still such games exist and no one hacked them to work at least on CPC664.

You are MiSTer user, right? It's better to post in MiSTer forum then - so i will not mess between MiST and MiSTer.
MiST doesn't support CDT files.

It seems CRTC0 game. So, you need to switch CRTC to Type 0 and it will be displayed correctly.

Actually, WinAPE also shows flickering video in Druid II game if i choose CRTC1. CRTC0 works fine.
JavaCPC shows ok on both CRTC0 and CRTC1, but it's hard to trust JavaCPC as it detects some specific demos/games and change the parameters.

Works fine on Mistica!

But I do not hear sound, is strange without sound. I think Amstrad CPC tape sound is not in schematic, possible cassette speaker?

Hi Manu:

I also tried it this afternoon on Mistica with the game Booty, which plays music during loading, so in this case, I did not care that the sound of the tape does not come out.
