Thank you very much for that, the CPC6128 was my first computer and I have very fond memory of it
Is cap32 able to handle multi-disk games? I have Orphee on 2 disks for example, but I don't know what to do when it prompts me to "Retournez la Disquette"
Multiple disks game are supported, you just need to set the "disk startup" option (in settings menu) to "manual". With this option, the emulator won't restart the CPC when you insert a new disk.
Thanks for that Zx, I tried setting just "disk startup" to manual, but the CPC was still restarted when inserting disk 2.
I found success after settings 2 items:
Disk startup => manual
Reset on startup => no
Now Orphee works!! Yeah! Thanks!
