winuae.7z updated: Cubo DIP switches and touch screen support added. Touch screen uses existing lightpen events -> configure for example mouse horiz and vert to lightpen vert and horiz and map touch event to mouse button.

Eldorado appears to listen for touchscreen events but I can't get it do anything with them.. Unless it needs DIP switches in correct positions?

DIP switch events are toggles, keep log window open to see current state. It may be shown in status bar later..

EDIT: Config must be created using new quickstart Cubo CD32 option to enable above features.

I don't find the touch event...

Cubo reset at PIC timeout. Is it how it should be?

Sounds like cubo debugging serial message (Did you use -serlog parameter?). (Touch screen ignores these because all packets start with ascii 0x01)

Someone needs to find out function of the PIC. Is it only for copy protection purposes or does it have some "real" function too.

No serlog (is a command line parameter?).
I need somehow to init NV RAM?

12C508 is really simple, with the board in your hand and some probe, you can solve.

Works for me.

Nothing special here , if properly set the game is forced to hdd mode,
so I don't know what's wrong for you..

Don't spend much time on it, will look at it again tomorrow. Meanwhile you guys did a great job. Maybe AMike is willing to send you the board to find out the chip....

It is practically impossible without code dump. You can fit very difficult to guess algorithms in tiny space and protocol is also unknown bit based. (But PIC probably has some vulnerability to allow code to be dumped even if protection is enabled.)

It is probably much easier to find the logic by reversing the game logic to see what it sends and what it expects back.. Main "protection" is extremely ugly disassembly where very simple operations use multiple instructions...

Yes, you are right, too much work to make a code dump (even though there are possible techniques), definitely not worth it.
What I meant was that if the board is available it is easier to check everything with a logic analyzer (if needed ..).
This micro is really limited, cannot make too complex operations.

But even easier find the logic and crack the code as you said
(but really boring..)

Best regards,
ross

Send a message via ICQ to ElectroBlaster
I have snagged a Cubo CD32! Just have to hope it will arrive here and intact, got it outside of the UK. I assume its country of origin as it is near Greece in Cyprus.

Not really sure why I bought it but it looked interesting and I was after another cd32 anyway, so I am taking a punt on it! Will more than likely need the board recapping and the laser looking at. It only has one CD and that is Laser Quiz Greece XX.

I shall make sure that is imaged/iso'd when I can

today i contacted Carlo Santagostino and he told me:

For the pic microcontroller I can contact the technician that did this work and the programmer of the games with touchscreen. and all the games were programmed in blitz basic and complied, and I've got all the contacts with former cd-express employees, and I've preserved many original cd (not all but many)

Good news indeed.

[EDIT: i've read the Santagostino interview, almost the same things apply to me!
but i'm a month younger ]

Yes, please do! There were rumours of a Lazer Quiz Greece version, but it was never found until now.

Excellent news! Would be great if he could provide isos of the missing games, if he could also get you scans (or high res pictures) of the CDs that would be even better
So Double Strixx is the prequel to Laser Strixx 2? I guess that explains the confusion with the Laser Strixx naming since some places named it as simply Laser Strixx while others use Laser Strixx 2.

the complete number of games produced is something that is hard to know because many games was re-released in different versions and different titles, but the total isl almost more than 20.

odeon twist I and II where the latest games made for the cubo cd32 (both touchscreen)
and were compilations of games (including all the version of laser quiz, with all languages)

Great stuff! Thanks to both jarre and Carlo Santagostino!

20 games really? Now that's interesting, had no idea there were so many games released for the CUBO. I wonder how many unique games there are.
