Re: Not working with Arculator?

Ian, do you want to give the attached a go. From the brief testing I've done, it works on a 16MB machine provided you don't quite out of Desktop. Quitting out of the Desktop is bad as the OS appears to internally modify all the DA's, without doing it via legal means :shock: Whilst loaded, ADFFS will...

Yes, that is a hacked copy that I obtained from another source. It's not a rip of the original disk I purchased.
Ah, in that case I won't spend any time looking at it. I don't suppose you can ZIP or create an ADF of your original yet?

Re: Provocator spotted:

@wmd I noticed I’d also downloaded a ZIP of the game from your OneDrive. I tried it under Red Squirrel, Arculator and on a Pi3 under ADFFS, all exhibited graphics corruption when scrolling. When I get a chance I’ll test on appropriate hardware but on the face of it, it looks like I might need to do ...

Re: Not working with Arculator?

Turns out it does return an error with 16MB or RAM and should refuse to load. Due to a bug further up the call chain however, the V flag is being cleared so ADFFS loads without reporting the error. Having fixed that issue, I’ve gone on to look at how to get it loading on a 16MB machine. That’s a lot...

Re: Not working with Arculator?

I've just looked at the code and in theory it should work on 16MB machines, the original thread is here , where I discussed the issue. From testing however, it looks like the 2nd page of memory onwards disappears from the floppy buffer on 16MB machines. The error you're seeing is Clib or the filesys...

Re: Not working with Arculator?

Perhaps it could check and error, rather than just exploding? :) If only it were that easy, I never invested any time in the issue as there are next to no machines out there with 16mb of RAM. You're actually the first person to notice it to date outside of Steve and I. Steve Harrison has actually d...

Re: Not working with Arculator?

I've found that this issue only happens with a 16MB That will be it. If you read the ADFFS pre-reqs it does state 16MB isn't supported, the max it will run on is 12MB. The reason 16MB isn't support is because ADFFS back-ports OS_DynamicArea to RO3.1 and it needs an unallocated area in memory to pla...

Re: Provocator spotted:

Here's the instructions PDF. As the source was such poor quality and used a stock font, I recreated it from scratch. It's not 100% accurate, but good enough considering. I didn't embed the font for copyright reasons, but it's a stock Adobe font so hopefully won't be substituted. Could you possibly u...

Re: Not working with Arculator?

I can't say I've ever tested ADFFS under Arculator as the version I have has built in JFD support. I'm not sure if that ever made it into the public build. I will investigate. EDIT: I've tested with Arculator v2.0 and not had any issues. That would imply its possibly something in your !Boot? Try wit...

Here are the scans for the inlay and instructions.
Thanks, I've downloaded them and will take a look later.
