Re: USBJoystick 0.21

I tried Mad Professor, and it makes the controls go berserk So it does. Odd thing is, it works correctly if you test with an XB360 controller. Not sure why that would make a difference? EDIT: If you look at its code, I need to correct it as its relying on the SWI to fail: 000181DC SWI XJoy_Read0 00...

Re: ADFFS 2.80

UPDATE: I have seen it appears as 2.80-1, is that the expected version number? The BETA package appears as 2.80-3, which is a bit confusing. 2.80-1 is the current stable build in the "release" channel. The versioning in PackMan can get a little confusing. Essentially the beta channel got ...

Any idea on what has gone wrong?
Check your PackMan install/config. I've just tested and successfully updated on a RiscPC via PackMan.

Re: Request: Arcturus disc images

Did we ever manage to get any further in tracking down the rights holders to the Oregan titles at all? No. Mark Perry is a name I have for Oregan. I emailed his last known email address in 2018 but did not receive a reply. it looks like Paradise Games collaborated with Oregan on a couple of titles ...

Re: S.W.I.V. (1992) (Krisalis Software)

There's a work-in-progress !Run replacement script in this post, which resolves the issue mentioned above.

Keep an eye on that post, which I'll update as I resolve the remaining issues. Once complete, I'll roll it into ADFFS 2.81 and release a revised PackMan package.

Re: ADFFS 2.80 public beta

Issues noted with SWIV: F1 is not pausing the game and needs holding to do anything (fixed by moving the EventV game code call into the main game loop) the screen update code sits under in IRQ event (EventV originally, Device 3 under the JIT). Pressing F1 puts the code into a loop at 1415C. Ignoring...

Re: S.W.I.V. (1992) (Krisalis Software)

It looks like everything is running slightly quicker than I remember, even the title sequence (maybe just me getting old!) I've only just got the memory up to 32MB on this machine, so it didn't work at all previously. Also, F1 doesn't seem to pause the game, but does seem to remove the baddies from...

Re: S.W.I.V. (1992) (Krisalis Software)

Is there anything I can try to slow it down? Try pressing CTRL-SHIFT-PgUp a few times to add delay to any frame-swap the game might be doing. I'm not 100% certain if it will work for this game. I'll have to check the boot script for this game as I don't recall if it self-regulates or needs slowing....

Re: Forcing LCDGamesMode on when using a multi scan monitor

I'll get my A440 into a working state over the weekend and see if I can reproduce the problem. Just to rule it out, could you recopy the two files that get patched from disk 3 and delete the date file so it rematches them on the next run. What filesystem is your HD attached to? ADFS or IDEFS? The ga...

Re: Forcing LCDGamesMode on when using a multi scan monitor

Could you send me copies of the files prior to being patched:
TC
PV
PVC
SO
SOC


The code that prompts for the disk is removed by the patch, so it either didn't get patched or your copy is different.
