Prince of Persia 1 Sharp X68000

What is Sharp X68000?

The Sharp X68000, often referred to as the X68k, is a home computer released only in Japan by the Sharp Corporation. The first model was released in 1987, with a 10 MHz Motorola 68000 CPU, 1 MB of RAM and no hard drive; the last model was released in 1993 with a 25 MHz Motorola 68030 CPU, 4 MB of RAM and optional 80 MB SCSI hard drive. RAM in these systems is expandable to 12 MB though most games and applications didn't require more than two.

How-to install and play the game

First off download the game roms: Roms are compressed into one file containing the three disks (compressed too). Just extract the file, then extract the three files.

Download disk images: Prince_of_Persia_1_X68000.zip (1.86 MB)

Then download the EX68 Sharp X68000 emulator for PC from here: http://www.aep-emu.de/Emus-file-emus_detail-id-729.html and the roms from here: http://www.ksky.ne.jp/%7Eyamama/emul/agree2.htm

You should boot like this: Put disk 1 into fdd 0 and disk 2 into fdd 1. When this message appears:

Please insert Disk C into Drive 1

(By the way, that Japanese text means "Please insert Disk C into Drive 1.") put disk 3 into fdd 1 and press any key.

If you want to use the arrows and shift for controlling, go to option, STICK, and in the JOY 1 Windows??? box select ??????????? +ZX.

Also, the levels are recorded (just like in the PC98 version, this version is very similar to that version). In the main menu, click on the next-to-last link and choose your level and watch it.

And, while playing, press F1 then the next-to-last link to exit to the main menu.

PS When you hit the skeleton, all its bones move and crack :).

Note: Disk B contains the intro, whereas disk C contains the game.
