Knightmare Gold, which was first released last year by Amusement Factory, has just been released to the public on the Knightmare Gold website.

This public version does not only have a lot of bugfixes, but is also a big improvement from version 1.0 distributed last year. This version comes with better and more colorfull graphics (everything from stages to end level bosses was re-colored), cheats, an "easy" playing mode, improved cd-audio tracks and much more.

The game is released as a patch, which will modify the ROM data of the original Knightmare game, thus creating Knightmare Gold. A small review of the game can also be found on The MSX Files.

Just to say its a great work, congratulations to all the people involved in this job, it's a great enhancement to the original Knightmare game. I hope we can see this kind of job in other great classic games from MSX. Smile

Well, the patch has to be applied to any specific knightmare rom (I mean, a specific crc) like the goodroms one or any one will fit? Question

First of all, thanks. Smile
About "specific ROM", yes, KMG needs a perfect dump of the original game. I believe it's possible to find it already dumped on FUNET.. Big smile

Graphics are really cute and scroll is much better than in original, so I must say that you have done a really good work!

If you are still working with the project there is still some things, that I would like to change:

- If I start the game from CF card the loader will rotate my diskdrive. If disk is not in drive I get "Not ready reading drive F:" and "Abort or Retry (A/R)?" prompt and I can't start the game.

- You should really disable the screen while clearing it for Konami logo.

- I think drawing of Konami logo is a bit slow

- It is pity that the connection is slow, but as you practically need to download all the music files (if you want to make a CD) it really sucks, that you can't download it as a bundle, that includes all the needed files. Now you have to come to click next download in every 10 minutes!

I found another problem: If the CD-ROM drive is connected to secondary IDE-controller, it is not detected. The IDE-controller where CD-ROM is connected needs to be in lower slot. Otherways you get PSG only music.
