Sorry some people seem to be having issues... I don't have my physical copy yet so I cannot comment at this time about what the problem is...
Please can anyone who is having problems message me on here, or email me at my email address:
akuyou at chibiakumas dot com
and I will give you a link to the digital copies of the 'polyplay version'

The regular version will be released free in a couple of weeks once all the physical versions of the game have landed, and I know all the paying customers have what they are entitled to...

NOTE: the only difference between the 'Polyplay' version and the 'regular' version is the polyplay logo on the titlescreen - the gameplay is unchanged.
Thanks for everyone's patience
Keith

Hello Keith, thanks again for your ultra-fast response. I've noticed some graphic glitches in the intro, look at the videos, the first is the MSX2 and the second the CPC version:

Played with a MSX Turbo R A1 GT executed as image disk with SofaRun and forced to Z80, anyway not sure about Z80 because I saw later the R800 led on.

Thanks for the video, you're right, something has gone wrong with the images after the disk load halfway through the intro...
The file is an RLE, and it's loaded then decompressed in 128byte blocks - but it looks like something has gone wrong, and some junk data has been read in, causing the RLE to be offset a bit... which is why bits of the next scene are showing and other bits are chopped off..

Does this happen every time? I just tried the intro on my emulator 3 times, and never saw the problem, and I believe the intro files are unchanged since my real hardware testing on an MSX2+Megaflashrom... I will keep testing in case it's random.

It could be your disk emulator is doing something unusual that the MegaFlash and normal disk firmware do not.. but that RLE decoder is used in the same way all over the game, so I'd have expected far more problems if that was the case

Has anyone else seen the same problem?

Who ordered the game has already received its copy?
I made the order on August 27th and I still do not receive anything.

Is the game hard-disk installable, keith56?

Libero -> sorry to hear you are still waiting, please contact Polyplay themselves, as I have no info regarding shipping... I emailed them some time ago about other issues, and have not heard back yet, so I don't think me contacting them will help!

I'm not sure if the game is HDD installable, all disk access goes through BDOS calls, so if they are obeyed, and there memory<$D000 is free for game use then the game should work OK whatever your disk system

Hello everyone! As promised, ChibiAkumas V1.666 is now available for FREE download (with sourcecode!) for all systems (CPC,MSX,ZX Speccy and Enterprise) from the website
http://www.chibiakumas.com

Coincidentally, my Youtube channel just reached 500 subscribers, so I thought I'd make a quick 'thank you' video, discussing some of my plans for my programming tutorials over the next 12 months!

I hope everyone enjoys the game!
