Indeed, the core Magic Desk CRTs should work fine! The Kung Fu Flash and the BackBit carts are probably the best way to enjoy this collection on real hardware.

Had another go today and used the crunched prgs and all worked fine so sorry as I obviously did something wrong. Thanks - just need to sort all the games into folders as takes a long time to show a directory.

Wonderful!

I tried some games and they worked with Vice on Windows, but Wizball was insanely fast. Unplayable... Any suggestion?

Great stuff. Really glad you got it sorted. And yeah, sorry, there's rather a lot of files all in one folder. I'm not sure what the optimum number of files per folder would be on an SD2IEC, but I guess at least sorted by letter should help. A quick way to do this in Windows would be to use a simple batch file:

Code:
md 0
md a
md b
md c
md d
md e
md f
md g
md h
md i
md j
md k
md l
md m
md n
md o
md p
md q
md r
md s
md t
md u
md v
md w
md x
md y
md z
move a*.* a
move b*.* b
move c*.* c
move d*.* d
move e*.* e
move f*.* f
move g*.* g
move h*.* h
move i*.* i
move j*.* j
move k*.* k
move l*.* l
move m*.* m
move n*.* n
move o*.* o
move p*.* p
move q*.* q
move r*.* r
move s*.* s
move t*.* t
move u*.* u
move v*.* v
move w*.* w
move x*.* x
move y*.* y
move z*.* z
move *.* 0

That's strange. It all seems to be fine here. I tried the core .CRT files in the root folder, as well as the crunched and uncrunched PRGs on VICE v3.5 and v2.4 without any issue. Are you you using the CRT file or uncrunched PRG file? If it's the latter, maybe VICE is auto-warping when you start it? Have you tried Alt+W to see if it returns to normal?

Never thought of doing it this way - have always just done it by hand previously so this is very helpful. Thanks!

I use similar script, except number ones I call # instead of 0

This makes it much easier to manage and run games on C64 Maxi

Someone already posted how collection looks under LaunchBox / BigBox with OneLoad64 theme wheel...

[ Show youtube player ]

All games are click away from starting (and if you set it correctly, in full screen with correct GamePad/Joystick setup).

Indeed. It's really great to see people putting the collection to good use!

I've just uploaded a sneak peek of the new prototype Magic Desk CRT format for OL64 games, including simulated tape loader raster bars and music, with Wizball and the original Ocean Loader music as an example!

The CRT file can be downloaded from the description of the YT video:

Do you know of any CRT with Turrican 1 and 2 as separate files?

Thank you for those. They work well in C64 Maxi and I have whole collection loaded in Launchbox.

There is this release of Turrican 1 over at CSDb: https://csdb.dk/release/?id=140792

But I'm not aware of a separate Turrican II like this unfortunately other than a Disk2EasyFlash conversion, hence the cartridge used in OL64.
