Sovox Compilation for CDTV


Here is the Sovox Compilation for your Commodore CDTV and an iso that I created with a lot of effort and a long time where you will find over 350 games, then there are adf files, programs, players, and music mods, the cdtv is very limited, many incompatibility problems did not allow to insert well-known games, I tried to insert everything I was able to make work, my idea was to insert only games to be used only with the remote control but unfortunately it was not possible for the few compatible games , to make everything work at its best you need a keyboard and disk drive to save the games where available, most likely something may not work at the limit report it what does not work, keep in mind that I have tested all the games but I have limited myself only to upload, and all those that have been uploaded I put them in the iso

Burn at the lowest speed of your burner, for example I in my 52X burner or burned the ISO at 16X which would be the minimum write speed of the burner, if you follow these indications the burned CD will be read well by your CDTV I for example I used the free ImgBurn program for burning.
Update, thanks to JST programmer jotd a program similar to WHDLoad with this program it is possible to load WHDLoad games with the basic kickstart 1.3 of the CDTV and 1MB but only some games that are not demanding of memory maximum 512KB however it is also possible to load games heavier but you need to have more memory for now I have inserted only the basic ones of a CDTV, in the ISO image it is possible to find in the menu 5,6,7 150 WHDLoad games

Have fun with my ISO image 12/11/2020

Yes this is also due to the little RAM otherwise some NoDOS game in WHDload version (JST compatible) could run.

Anyway you did a good job, i had done something similar for my CD32, for the CD32 with SX32 I had inserted also heavier games.

Digging deep in the iso i was able to find even some sort of love letters written with C1-text. Added value!

Hi everyone, I have inserted all the images of all the 350+ games so it's easier to know what's in the ISO before uploading, there are links directly in the main post. or link to my site

that's a lot of (sometimes tedious) work to create a CD with 300+ titles and everything is running! Excellent

hoping to bring you the remaining 512k chip whdload slaves in the future!

it took a month to do the work of this image, not knowing anything about how to create it all, just the menu which is very simple it took a long time, now or the basics for now I stop a little with the updates thanks also to your program

probably because your emulator has expansion memory configured. that's cheating

I mean that a few people will be able to enjoy those games. I mean: CDTV + expansion mem only (no softkick to 3.1, no hard drive) is probably rare.

People with CDTV+hard drive / expansion memory probably softkick and can use whdload.

The main interest of your compilation (beside those titles) is to be able to run it on a stock CDTV. For that your compilation is unique (thanks to JST )

Something else: a lot of slaves in that list use CUSTOM2=1 to enable second button jump (ex: toki, magic pockets, gods, superfrog...). It would be cool if it could be activated some way.

on CD32load, holding second button at startup enables custom2. I could do something like this for JST.

i running this compilation on emulated stock CDTV, so 1 MB Chip RAM and kickstart 1.3 and many games working. Of course there is many games to test.
It run also a WHDLoad game through JST. Very Good Work.

maybe it is better not to put the games that need additional memory in the ISO I created, however I created this compilation with the JST program of jotd that I wanted to put in menu 8, if anyone is interested here to download to try there are 50 known games. at least let me know if eventually this menu should be included in the 350-game compilation

it's better to put all games that run on a stock CDTV on the same disc.

Games requiring extra mem should be put aside or on another disc. But who needs a CD when you have extra mem? you probably have a HD too. That's my point.
