I looking for the way to display an image in Screen12 to Screen8. Do you still have the source code?

I found some personal notes & partial code that I can send if you want, but overall the whole patch is only 308 bytes that should be very straight forward to put trough disassembler to get the whole idea. ( http://msx.fi/temp/quinpl.ips ) With some luck it may be even applied without breaking your changes.

Too bad.

Do you plan to do the map for Quinpl? This game is very long and it has a lot of hidden passage (especially from stage 51). There is a hundred internships and a about ten bosses. Even with cheat (DEL+DS until title) to get time and unlimited lives the game is difficult to me and he Rom version does not have game save! I played only until stage 35 with cheating.

I remember the megabit race of the time. Namco has made a fake ROM of 32kB probably to give the impression of a big game. By searching for coding texts of Quinpl, I discovered that Bit ^2 did the same artifice because the ROM is in fact 1Mb, not 2!

It's strange because in ad of MSX Magazine (09-1988 page 48 & 10-1988 page 52), It's written Megarom of 1mb!

The game resumes at the last stage played when a PAC cartridge is inserted. :)

I don't have current plans to map this game. Maybe in the future...

More advanced cheats (I prefer the DSK version - see warning with F1 for ROM version):

There is a patch to fix the Quinpl Rom, and another to translate and to fix the game.
