New C64 Mega-game "Sam`s Journey"

Out this week, it's a bit pricey compared to your usual homebrew game but man this doesn't look like your usual homebrew game

No, it's cleary not homebrew quality. It's simply the new standard for C64 top platformer. Beats all commercially released games back then.
I've played it roughly 5 hours and solved maybe 50-60% of the game. Highly addictive.

Save game import/export tool.

Quote:
Disable the cartridge autostart of the game. The original Commodore kernel was unfortunately designed to provide protection of commercial cartridges against reverse engineering and will not allow to load and run a program while a game cartridge is inserted in the module slot. Disabling the cartridge autostart can be achieved either by installing a Kernal-ROM that allows to bypass the CBM80 check (for example "SpeedDOS") or by using a cartridge expander or switch that allows to disconnect the EXROM line.
Damn, i have to start the game from the beginning. I can't load a different kernel on my real hardware, only via EasyFlash. Anyway, this time i will get the 100% collected items.

Bought it. I love it!

It has tons and tons of secrets to discover. I am playing it on my PSP with VicePSP. The game is awesome. Everybody should buy it.

Bought a cartridge expander with on/off and reset switch. Had problems with my 469 boards but with a 407 i was able to write my old emulator save game into the cartridge.

Without a doubt, the best CBM64 platformer. I'll be playing this game for years to come.

The scene delivers: After the great EasyFlash patch (with an external savegame import/export tool available too) the game loads in good speed (no costume change delays) from SD2IEC.
