Awards the increasing value in the panel? Does it mean, it's doubling your current score? Is there some kind of a count-up? Tbh, I have no idea.
Thank you!
Yes, instructions are not very explicit. Fortunately I found a video where the Mega Hit is done and my doubt is clarified.

amazing! Shame for them that they cannot sell it after all this hard work. If they have a Patreon or similar I’d gladly donate to some cash for their efforts

Also, very pleased it is compatible with the M4 board!

CPC Emulation with Retroarch I can't use the down arrow on the on screen keyboard to use the plunger?

Down is the key to use the plunger correct?

Press right shift+arrow down. After that arrow down is active as the plunger. Strange keyboard function in the Retroarch Core (Caprice32) though.

With RA Caprice clicking either shifts, and using the down arrow in gimui onscreen keyboard doesn't work.

Activating down arrow just touches the plunger and ball lunges 1 cm up and falls back down.

My only question is why... Yes, it's impressive, but anyone would rather play the Amiga version.

Because they are fans of the Amstrad, and if my mate showed me that when i was a lad with my speccy or c64 i would have been pissed off.

Truly awesome stuff! Would this be possible on the C64 or ZX?

There was a promising C64 port in the works. Unfortunately the coder didn't complete it.

Love the huge DMD in the 64 version. Far better than the segmented display on the Amiga.

Most likely it uses the same broken method that VICE and UAE cores did in their virtual keyboards just a while back. It is not hard to fix, especially if hints are taken from those above mentioned cores. I've never used or had an Amstrad, so the best thing to do is to go and create an issue to the CPC repo.

The key is released immediately at the next frame and does not honor the used controllers keydown and keyup, so it is pure luck that any software has time to read it. Fore example in one Amiga game only F1 and F2 worked always, but F3 and F4 never. But no problem with a keyboard tester program.
