Hello All,

I downloaded a bunch of games from and placed them on 8Mbit cartridges (mostly xex, but also .atr, .com and .rom). Most of them did not work; I just got blank screens and running some games made the DOS utility menu appear. Is this something that can be fixed by using the "Edit Attribute" screen for each game? If so, any idea of what the settings should be?

Thanks for your help,

Yes - I found a few titles not running, when putting together my own best of .... games on a 8mbit cart.
Double clicking on the problem game - you can change on the 'Edit Attributes for Entry' screen option.
Next choose: EXE Loader Base Address - 0x0100 and change to
0x0400 and then choose 'save'
Hopefully this will get those few titles going proper?
It will not fix all nor does it apply to all formats - but it is worth trying - as the 3 problem games now can run OK.
