It seems, the game is working on Takeda´s emulator.
You need to start as first the debug version (LQDBG.cas) instead of the normal version (LQ.cas).



Mount LQDBG.cas
CLOAD
Mount LQMC.cas
RUN



Tower of Wizard (tape images)

Mount TOW.cas
CLOAD
Mount TOWMAC.cas
RUN

But it is better to use the debug version too.




What is 'Debug version'?

Is this homebrew soft, and debug version is something which uses less hardware features, or is debug(ged) version a 'fixed' version of the game for use in emulators?

It sounds a bit strange ;-)

The debugged version is a fixed version of the game for use in emulators.

it sounds like Kale should find what they changed, and emulate the missing features properly instead then ;-)

Yes, I'm aware, as I've said in the commit that's just an ugly hack that I've implemented in order to not get nuts with the MCU crapness ... remember that basically I don't have ANY docs for this system, so anything that I do is just based on guesses ... I've also fixed a loading bug with it, so you can now load almost every mode 1/2 PC-6001 software, and that might help if somebody wants to fix the cassette loading.

also, I start wondering if the .p6 and .cas are really representation of the content of the cassettes or if they only are memory snapshots of the loaded program (like .t64 files for the C64). if they latter, they are not cassette images at all and it would mean no real tape could be re-created starting from them...

I hope to obtain a pc6001 wav file, eventually


If you check PD "MyCom Basic" games there are .wav version of them. And yes, I agree too that they are just memory snapshots.

Yes, phc25 does not have MC6847 graphics mode signals hooked up correctly. Haven't had time to work on stuff, playing GTA IV smile

Paste function (internal menu)
To insert one line seems not to be a problem but with multiple lines.
A correct multiple line support make the life easier. smile

it already works fine in many drivers. not in all of them, unfortunately (the issue you see is probably the same as the one reported by Tafoid in bugzilla #1865 - http://bugzilla.mess.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1865 )

In this matter, I was talking about the 2 drivers above.
