I'm sure the autoboot is only there to load the MENU.p file for ZXpand commander so perhaps it's that p file that's corrupt?
No, my MENU.P is ok, but autoboot only works when the current working directory is the root dir.

When the current working directory is another (/GAMES for example) and I perform a soft reset, I always get an error 9.

Does this behavior occur to you too?

No, I'm loading it from its own directory, but as the load does not complete I get error 9 when ZXpand tries to load the MENU.P that is in root dir.

Hello every one :)
So happy to discover this game today, it is so beautifull and i love ZX81 !!!

But i have a problem like with "Dark Star" ... the two only games i can't launch fine on retroarch 1.7.8 with EightyOne 1.0a core.
All other games are working fine with some settings.
Here i've try all of them and nothing works :(

Is there a bug with LR ? Maybe i miss a loader ?

I only have a white screen with at bottom left write : 0 / 0

Is some one can help me or fix the game ?
Thanks a lot guys

This game does not only need a ZX81 but the ZXpand expansion as well. Maybe your emulator version does not support that

The experience with my iOS ZX81 emulator was that it ran without any problems, i.e no modified ROM, bar one point: If memory serves me, because I enabled the emulated ZXpand joystick support it assumed the persistent high-score saving functionality was available and crashed the game. So I ended up changing one byte to disable the high score retrieving routine. Sir Morris kindly allowed me to include it with the emulator so long as I didn’t distribute the modified P file.
