You didn't clearly mention which CPU you're having problems with, but I assume it's the Z80. Mine passes ZEXALL, this is what I did:

for 8-bit add/adc, sub/sbc (it's similar with 16-bit opcodes)
d=data to be added/subtracted, excluding carry flag
r=result after calculation

carry: simply A>r for add, A<r for sub (or if r>8bit: r>>8&1)
half carry: like you said it's (r^A^d)&0x10
overflow: ((A^r)&(d^r))>>5&4 for add, ((A^d)&(A^r))>>5&4 for sub
