Thanks for the report. I have replaced some pcode jumps to avoid that the "insert dungeon disk and press a key" or "insert boot disk and press a key" message appears.
You don't need to press spacebar anymore. that happens automatically. I have probably changed one wrong pcode value.
In my v1.4 I did not remove the ".... and press any key". pcodes. But if you already have a d81-image than without the annoying message "please turn the disk" or "please insert the dungeon disk".
If you make a WinVice Snapshot that would be great. so i can see where the program is stuck. otherwise I have to test all changes.
I've attached the .vsf and .d81 image for you to test out. I'm using Vice 2.4 because I'm also working on making a customized Carousel for TheC64 Maxi. The tool for customizing uses Vice 2.4 because that is the version of Vice within TheC64 Maxi.
Just tested Phantasie II same thing as Phantasie I.
I have the same issue like described on retropie/vice 3.4 on both games (Phantasie 1 & Phantasie 2)
issue happens in combats, overworld and dungeons, simply everywhere in the game except the town.
BTW: on Phantasie 2 if you enter a dungeon it ask for another disk.
