Awesome work! Can’t imagine how much was involved in doing this.

Also credit to all the cracking groups who did the very difficult job of linking an intro and adding a doc file to the release .. it’s a little easier to imagine the “work” they’ve done ;-)

Knight Lore C64, full Z80 conversion is now available for download.

Many thanks to Mariusz for the Re-Complier, optimisations and help. Saul for the music and STE for the loading screen picture.

This is I believe the first, full Z80 to 6502 conversion of Knight Lore and includes all of the features from the original Spectrum game (plus a few more!)

The performance of the game is very good and in line with the other 8 bit versions released in the 80’s and faster than some of them…For example, compared to the Amstrad version this version is faster in all the screens I tested (busy and non-busy). It’s faster than the BBC B version in a lot of the busy screens and slightly faster than the Spectrum & MSX versions in the non-busy screens. It does slow down a bit in the busy screens but all the other version do as well. Play it on a C128 in C64 mode and it’s fastest of them all.

To help to even out the speed difference between the busy and non-busy screens there is an option to Lock the Maximum Game Speed (FPS) in the Setting & Cheat Screen in the Front End. (This option won’t slow down the busy screens at all on a stock machine). It will default to On if an accelerated machine is detected. It will also default to On if a C128 has been detected (The C128 version was running too fast for the sound fx to keep up!). There are a number of different speeds that can be selected or it can be switched off altogether.

All the instructions including controls details are in the View Instructions & Info Screens option on the front end title screen.

Native C128 Vic II & VDC and Plus4 versions and source code will follow.
