Topic: Software

Once again a patch for a popular game more than two decades old. Brazilian MSX fan sd_snatcher surely knows how to entertain his fellow MSX'fans. With great pride he presents us with a patch for Konami's platform classic Maze of Galious. Fixes and improvements are:

  • DynamicVsync: both TurboFixes the game and makes it run better on Z80A/3.57MHz machines.
  • Enables the turbo via CHGCPU on boot on machines that have this feature
  • CoolColors: A new color palette that enhances the look of MSX1 games when run on a MSX2 or higher.
  • Hold the TAB key to throttle the game speed
  • Automatically sets the VDP to 60Hz on boot, to play the game at the correct speed even on European machines. If you have an old European TV that doesn't support this, keep SELECT pressed on boot to disable it.
