Re: Fire & Ice (1995) (Warner Interactive Entertainment)

Could this be down to copy protection? Just a thought. Any theories would be welcome. :) That is indeed the copy protection kicking in. If you use the JFD with ADFFS, it should work okay. I think at the time I recorded the gameplay video, an update for another game had broken it, so I should probab...

Re: Asylum RISC OS 5

I compared against a A310 and it is slightly slower. Having debugged the code, the music speed is set via Sound_QTempo which is being affected by the RISC OS OS emulation in ADFFS. Change "ADFEmulateRISCOS 3.11" in the !Run to "ADFEmulateRISCOS" as a temporary fix, to turn off the OS version emulati...

Re: Asylum RISC OS 5

When I get a chance, I'll do a side-by-side comparison between the Pi3 and an original Archimedes to double check the playback speed.

I suspect the tracker is hooked into VSync, so it may sound slow compared to emulation or RiscPC etc, but should hopefully match an original Arc.

Re: Asylum RISC OS 5

Change the BASIC -load to BASIC -quit to get it to exit back to the desktop.

Slightly slower game speed? Have you been into the settings and configured the sound/VSync?

Re: Sound issues on Iyonix

On the face of it, given the values above, sound should be correct on Iyonix. Having re-read the original eMail reporting the issue, it was "some games" that don't work, in particular Burn'Out and SimCity 2000 . Assuming SimCity 2000 is the PackMan release, then the common factor with those two game...

Re: Game deployment via PackMan

Requirements are the same as 2.72, so no updates should be required. Please post any issues on the 2.73 beta thread and I'll start looking at them. Make sure you update any games you have installed via PackMan. I've updated all the games I've tested that appear to work to the ARMv4 JIT, as per the S...

Re: Asylum RISC OS 5

I’ve tracked the locking down a Pi firmware change. It seems to be related to the min CPU clock speed, possibly the value itself or when the CPU clock speed is altered dynamically. For example, setting arm_freq_min=500 in CONFIG/TXT will cause the hang at the Asylum Options screen you describe. Sett...
