I have built, and continue to add to a sizeable catalogue of Tatung Einstein Software on this site to download via image file. It brings me great pleasure to know that people out there will be able to experience the software of the Einstein through the MESS emulator, even if they got rid of their computer long ago!

This page is dedicated to the image files I transferred from Einy to PC which unfortunately DON'T WORK. Now, these particular image files are not corrupt, and WILL WORK on a real Einstein if you manage to transfer them back to 3" disc (excluding Deadzone and Starbase - these will have to wait for MESS to fix that apparent interrupt issue - they will work if that is resolved). I used a program called CPCDISKXP V 1.6 to successfully transfer the files from 3" disk to my PC. This program was designed for Amstrad 3" disks but works perfectly well with Einy ones as well. I found out about this program, where to download it, and how to install my Einy disk drive to my PC via Chris Coxall's excellent Tatung Einstein website. You can get more information from this link :-

The latest version of the software is now CPCDISKXP V 2.5.

I will continue to add image files here that do not work on MESS once I have failed in all attempts to get them working. I know for a fact that the ELITE image file that is doing the rounds on the internet is NOT corrupt. I used the above mentioned program to transfer the disk image back to Einy 3" disk - and Elite loaded up in all its glory on my real Einstein. This is also the same story for the Konami 4 Game Pack... an image I was desperate to transfer successfully, if not just to play "Kings Valley" on the PC!

So it would seem the problem is most likely with the MESS emulator, a lot of the games that don't work seem to freeze whilst waiting for keyboard input, suggesting Einstein interrupt emulation issues. In the meantime, if you want to play these games on your real Einstein and know how to transfer the files between your PC and Einy, here they are.

Please note : There seems to be a problem when some people are trying to download from this site using Internet Explorer. If you see a random jumble of characters when you try to download anything from this site, please try using a different browser, ideally Firefox. That should solve the problem.
