At the moment it seems there are differences between MiST and MiSTer BBC Cores. Hopefully with this updated .mmb it gives a quick way to test if Core changes work.

I just checked and the 5 screens of Prince I saw were fine on MiSTer. You got 'Master' selected?

@cathode Nice! are your changes in latest MiST GitHub Core?

I have also checked on my MiSTer setup and I confirm no graphics issues at all.

@KnC thanks for spotting that. This error would have been on the original .mmb whenever that was created. There are so many games I don't think they have all been tested.

The disks are physically contained within the .mmb so I will try and get you some commands to type in order to run them and then get it fully working from the Menu in v1.3 :)

Thanks for the reply there is no rush Higgy it is not like there is a lack of games to play on the MiSTer
But will look forward to the update at some time :)

Thank you, selecting 'Master' did the trick!

Yie Ar Kung-Fu:
ESCAPE from the MENU (ESC)
*DIN 137
CHAIN "YIE_AR"

Yie Ar Kung-Fu 2:
ESCAPE from the MENU (ESC)
*DIN 136
CHAIN "YIE_AR"

NOTES: These need to be run in BBC MODEL B Mode, otherwise you get corrupted text & bad Health Bars
These seem to launch immediately and don't seem to give the intro to provide Key Guides

The '_' is the long line (Unshifted £), not the standard MINUS sign - it's the key next to 'RETURN' and above 'RIGHT SHIFT'
This does not display as Underscore, but instead as a long minus sign.

Yie Ar Kung-Fu:
Z - Left
X - Right
* - Up
? - Duck
RETURN - Kick
SHIFT - Punch
ESCAPE - Return to hi-scores
DELETE - Pause
COPY - Restart
While in pause mode, 'Q' and 'S' will turn the sound off and on.

Yie Ar Kung-Fu 2: (Same keys as above)
T - Replenish Energy
