HARP Supported Models

  • Amstrad CPC 464
  • Amstrad CPC 664
  • Amstrad CPC 6128
  • Amstrad CPC 464 Plus
  • Amstrad CPC 6128 Plus
  • Amstrad GX4000

HARP Supported Emulators

System Specs

  • CPU: Zilog Z80A @ 4MHz
  • RAM: 64 kB (464,664,464+), or 128 kB (6128,6128+), expandable to 576kB.
  • O/S: Locomotive BASIC 1.0 (464), Locomotive BASIC 1.1 (664,6128,464+,6128+), AMSDOS, CP/M 2.2 and CP/M 3.1 (6128,6128+)
  • Video: Various models based on the MC6845 CRT Controller
  • Sound: Digital Instruments AY-3-8912
  • Controls: 84-key keyboard, 2 2-button joysticks (but only one port!)

Basic Usage

  • Only disk or cartridge images will be used for HARP.
  • At the Ready prompt, type cat and press return. This is will display a list of disc files. You'll need to find the right file to run, best order to check files in is .BAS, .BIN, and then files without extensions. Run the game by typing run"filename". You don't have to type the extension or the last double quote. A space is not required before the first double quote.
  • If you get read fail errors, then you may need to type |CPM to run the game.
  • As many CPC disk images are hacks, care is taken to ensure that cheats aren't forcibly enabled in any supported game.
  • Cartridges are simply plugged in from power-on. They can only be used on CPC Plus (or GX4000) systems.
  • As Amstrad allows the distribution of the CPC system ROMs for non-commercial purposes, most CPC emulators will include them with the emulator, as is the case with WolfCPC.

Replay Instructions

MESS / WolfMESS

  • Recording from the commandline:
    • Open a command prompt (or MS-DOS Prompt in Windows 2000/9x/Me).
    • Command syntax is mess <driver> -flop1 <disk image> -cart <cart image> -record <INP filename>
    • <driver> refers to the MESS driver you wish to use, which is one of these: cpc464, cpc664, cpc6128, cpc464p, cpc6128p. Note that cpc464p and cpc6128p require a cart image to run.
    • Generally you will only require either -flop1 or -cart, depending on if you are running either a disk game or a cartridge game.
    • Run the game as per normal, and all your input is recorded to the file you specified with the -record switch, until you exit from MESS.
  • Playing back from the commandline:
    • Open a command prompt (or MS-DOS Prompt in Windows 2000/9x/Me).
    • Command syntax is mess <driver> -flop1 <disk image> -cart <cart image> -record <INP filename>
    • <driver> refers to the MESS driver you wish to use, which is one of these: cpc464, cpc664, cpc6128, cpc464p, cpc6128p. Note that cpc464p and cpc6128p require a cart image to run.
    • Generally you will only require either -flop1 or -cart, depending on if you are running either a disk game or a cartridge game.
    • The game should start on it's own, as per how it was recorded. You may exit at any time.

WolfCPC

  • Run WolfCPC from Windows Explorer, the Command Prompt, or use Start->Run... Linux users can run it from a console window.
  • For playback, you may need to insert the game disk before starting playback. For recording, it is recommended that you insert a disk during recording, as this is recorded in the replay file.
  • To start recording, press F7 or click "Record Replay". A save file dialog will appear, and will point to the folder currently set for replays. Enter the filename you wish to use, remembering to add the .wcr extension, as this won't be added for you. Recording ends when you push F7 again, or click "Stop Replay"
  • To start playback, press F8, or click "Playback Replay". An open file dialog will appear, and will point to the folder currently set for replays. Enter the filename of the replay you want to watch, or find it using the dialog controls. Playback can be stopped prematurely by pushing F8 again, or by clicking "Stop Replay". When the end of the replay file is reached, a message box appears showing the replay length. If you are in fullscreen mode, you may not see it, but you can just press Enter to close it.
  • Note that while WolfCPC supports loading snapshots in replays, HARP does not allow this. Any CPC replay doing this will be DQed.

WinAPE

  • Insert the disk and/or cart images you wish to run. Note that in CPC Plus mode, disk-based games will require the CPC Plus System Cartridge inserted to get to the Ready prompt so that the disk game can be loaded.
  • From the File menu, select Record Session...
  • The filename to save the replay as (.snr extension), and check "Save from Cold Reset"
  • Select File -> Record Session... again to stop recording.
  • To start playback, select Playback Session... from the File menu, and select the snr file to watch. You may also be prompted to select a cart and/or disk image.
  • Select File -> Playback Session... again to stop playback.
