Some features may require a non-redistributable kanji ROM.

734fe755f206208b2de2fdf9a4c60ca4 - Disk A (TOSEC / Neo Kobe Set 1)*
8be6d4d610808cc192b53103f72a40f5 - Disk B (TOSEC / Neo Kobe Set 1)
b838e8767516ffaa5b469bb9e319f5a5 - Disk A (Neo Kobe unlabelled)
* Note: appears to be a bad rip, though I did not experience any issue during gameplay personally. Left linked to avoid split sets.

Other Neo Kobe disks appear to be bad rips, so do not link them.
New user disks can be created via the F12 menu ("Disk" tab), then formatted in-game (F5).

Only one disk is needed at a time (+ user disk for saving and loading if desired).

This game deserves a revision.

First: I would like to get rid of GTFO entirely. It's an unwelcome concept and can easily be obtained with little to no effort upon starting the game.

Second: Thank Euclide for getting PC-88 going out of nowhere.

Seems fair, but if you are going to remove GTFO I think you should at least have new achievements to propose to replace the point value.

Left out most challenge style ones because it's significantly more linear, slower and harder than the remakes, so there is not a lot of flexibility for reasonable challenges that are not redundant or frustrating.

Here are my findings regarding TOSEC/Neo Kobe dump quality:

1. TOSEC Disk A (= Neo Kobe [Set 1] Disk A) has slight differences in two sectors compared to both Neo Kobe rips. For this reason I assume that it is corrupted, but in practice I did not notice any issue during gameplay. TOSEC Disk B appears to be clean.
2. Neo Kobe unlabelled Disk A appears to be the cleanest rip, as it has the most redundancy between the three rips, and no sector is different to both TOSEC and [Alt 1]. However, Disk B's whole first track appears to be corrupted and the disk does not boot correctly. It could be a revision, but with no other difference in the disk contents I believe it was a misguided attempt at "repairing" the boot track.
3. Neo Kobe's [Alt 1] set is just corrupted all around. Disk A has one area that differs from the other rips and is most likely errored, while Disk B has a bunch of corrupted sectors towards the end, including missing sectors.

With that in mind, I have left the TOSEC set linked, as well as Neo Kobe's unlabelled Disk A. All other current dumps should remain unlinked.

Okay, I have to post this since the emulator for PC-8800 is not listed for tickets: Pacifist triggered for me when I pressed one of the buttons that summoned the save system. It was when I was trying to find the button to open the inventory to equip some bought items.

Posted: 08 Feb, 2019 23:28
Fixed it (and Reseller, which was a bit too lenient), thank you. I will ping the relevant people to get the emulator an entry in the ticket form.

Alright, gonna play this, thanks. I'll probably try the PCEngine version too one of these days but for now the cheevos set for that one scares me.

NEC PC-8001 or NEC - PC-8801 ?

How exactly do I save my game? When I try to use the user disk I get disk write failed and when I use a blank disk, the saving light keeps flashing and it's stuck.
