 Terra Nova on Sextett Compilation buggy?

Hi there,
i got an original copy of the Sextett Compilation disk and noticed that
the game crahes or hangs after completing the first stage and don't load the next stage.
i tried it several times an also used cheats but everytime the same result.
Can anyone confirm this?

Regards, Norman

There's a zip in the Terra Nova page containing some buggy C16 and Plus/4 bugged versions. Try the latter and tell us if what you see is what you've got from your real tape.

Hello Luca,

Norman

 Re: Terra Nova on Sextett Compilation buggy?

ok, i tried but i got some problems creating a working image.
I guess there is a copy protection on this disk and i do not have a parallel cabel for my
ZoomFloppy Device.The following Message appears when i try to start making an image:

"the source disk ID (S4) is unknown. this could be a corrupt disk, a copy-protectected disk,
or unsupportet format.Do you want to try imaging with NIBTOOLS?"

When i create a standard D64 Image the program gives a warning that the image is bigger than 683 blocks (688 blocks)...trying to make a NIB image fails and program abort...

Sorry but i am new to the Commodore 64 - and plus4 World and hope you can help me.
Also i am interrested to contribute an share my stuff...

Any german users active here?

May be a silly idea but i can send my Disk to a proffessional and he/she can make a working image of it.

At least, sorry for my bad english

regards Norman

Hi Norman,

Thanks for the file! It's up on Plus/4 World now for everyone to try. I haven't been able to load Jump Jet from it though ("JJ" on the disk). The other games started up. Does it work for you?

(p.s. still waiting for your reply to my email )

@Blinddarm: I also tested it with VICE and it failed (a bit earlier than in YAPE). May I ask which VICE version did you try? Also, if the loader only checks for certain bad sectors a D64 with error info block added might suffice.

 Re: Terra Nova on Sextett Compilation buggy?

OK, it works in VICE now, thanks Looking at the G64 it seems that it's having so-called "weak bits" which is a sort of copy protection - so far unseen on the CBM 264 family, so it's cool you have recovered this. YAPE currently does not have weak bits emulation but this will hopefully change soon

 Re: Terra Nova on Sextett Compilation buggy?

Hmm, for me the G64 worked on the latest YAPE (with the exception of Jump Jet), but I guess that *should* work too.

Thanks for the ZIP, I looked through it, but it's mostly supplemental stuff, not something we'd store on the site. Here are the contents:

I could use the .NIB image so thanks in advance. BTW the image also works for me using the latest beta (1.1.6) that Csabo used, except Jump Jet.

 Re: Terra Nova on Sextett Compilation buggy?

The problem with Terra Nova is actually that the level datas for the next levels are missing on tape as well as on disk. Incidentally, the intro is missing as well.

On 6 of the Best from Anco Terra Nova was saved with all level datas.
