Ok. That was my mistake the parser removed the initial pause which is important.
So, the game start to load, but after first block it looks like hangs. It shows random byte in the middle of screen and hangs.

The same happens on WinAPE and JavaCPC.
Of course i've choose CPC464 config without FDC, MF and other expansions.

What else should be done for this game?

If you are investigating in Tape Support please also check out Harvey Headbanger Tape.
There are two Versions. One with Music Load, the other without music.

V5-86 = With Music, hang up / Freeze while loading (I had this Version when I was a kid)
V12-86 = no music, working

If you have other 464-only game, then i would glad to test.

Can i use wav instead of cdt ? Because i have some self made wav from amstrad tape that can be problematics (gremlins titles for examples)

Directly - no.
But there should be tools to convert WAV to TZX(same as CDT) as it supports custom data blocks. So, i suggest to find conversion tool for this.
is it the same Gremlins?: http://www.cpc-power.com/index.php?page=detail&num=1012
