Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

2.71p package now on the dev site, which fixes a bug in the way palette entries destined for the GPU are handled in the GraphicsV driver.

Now that everything is packaged...

PackMan isn't available for RO3.11, so I've recently been pondering how to let RO3.11 users download pre-packaged games. The obvious route is to code the GUI and have it download/extract the packages. That involves either linking to sections of PackMan's code (if allowed and its possible), or coding...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

I've fixed Ballarena [UCS], which was hanging on the loader screen. It turned out to be a bug in the game code, which although it gets the screen address legally, it assumed it ends on a 1MB boundary. Remove the package and redownload it to get the fixed version.

Re: Cannon Fodder (1994) (Krisalis Software)

Thanks for the corrections, Jon :-) No problem, if you're having problems with a game just ask and I'll do my best to assist. it complains it can't find Loader, but it can find it as soon as I copy Loader into !Cannon. Probably just coincidence as it's trying to load the game file "Loader". I'm not...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

I've fixed the high score screen in Bouncer and have fixed a few other issues. Looking at the code, I believe it should run at half the speed it did previously, but doesn't due to a typo in its code - I've put two alternative fixes in the !Run one of which slows the game down. Remove the package and...

Re: Cannon Fodder (1994) (Krisalis Software)

On RiscPC and newer download packaged games via PackMan . A few corrections: - Grab !ADFFS.Obey.F1006501 not !ADFFS.!Obey (which is the last game to be booted) - Do not copy !ADFFS.!Loader (which is part of ADFFS) - Don't alter any of the boot script except for removing the first few lines that set ...

Re: Titles JASPP have full or partial permission to release

SimCity 2000 [A5000 version] would be awesome :) I've just released test packages of both versions via PackMan, which should work on a Pi. It's going to be a while before I can release the full package as I've yet to scan the boxes and manual, let alone convert the manual to PDF. I'll also need to ...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

[Pac-Mania] quits fine if you quit while on the title screen, or the intro to the first level. But try to quit in the game itself, while you play the first level for example, and you will see it hangs. I'm seeing the same issue if forcibly terminating when in game, so will investigate. "The Dungeon...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

Quitting via CTRL+ESC works with no problem! Only CTRL+SHIFT+F12 causes the hang. Strange, but maybe you know what the differences are. CTRL-ESC is a legal means to quit most C based games. CTRL-SHIFT-F12 forcibly terminates a task and attempts to roll back everything it's done since loading, consi...
