Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

Excellent. I’ve just tried it and confirm that it’s working for me too.

That’s pretty amazing progress, from my initial vague comment to a pretty comprehensive fix in a couple of days!

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

Magic! There is the step I didn't make... It was the order that was critical! We have had some of the StrongEd discussion before, but it didn't make sense. Now it does. I can confirm that it works as expected. If ADFFS is started first, then its all good. If StrongEd is/was started first, I get 'ADF...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

I have tried upgrading my RISC OS ROM (was only a week or two old anyway) and with killing USBJoystick. No difference. Also tried re installing. Then I removed StrongEd from my boot sequence. Break 147 starts! One time I tried CTRL-ESC i got a lock-up and an AODT error (but now I cannot reproduce, a...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

OK, so with 2.72g, 2067BC, BigBang and Crystal Maze are better.

Chocks Away, Break 147 and Superpool still lock on the loading screen. CTRL-BREAK to the rescue!

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

I have tried a handful of games. Chocks Away locking the machine solid when the loading screen appears (CTRL-BREAK doesn't even work). Superpool and Break 147 are similar, but CTRL-BREAK still works. 2067BC crashes before it even leaves the desktop with AODT at FC02B5D8 and attempt to use badly nest...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

I think 0.15 should be fine, as it includes the ADC/OSByte fix for Populous but doesn't have any keyboard or mouse emulation stuff enabled.

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

I normally load USBJoystick loads of times, without an issue, so it must be something subtle which only E-Type is showing up. Maybe bytev? I will look. A quick check would be to add debug output for all OS_Claim/OS_Release and use the non-X version of OS_Release to confirm they're releasing correct...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

If you're reloading USBJoystick after its already loaded, then I think the issue may be that something isn't being released when its RMKilled and it's that that's causing the issues. You might be onto something there. I was just trying loading things the other way around, and found the pointerv-les...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

Re. Compiling USBJoystick, sorry, I should have provided some guidance! There was a compiled module in there, and I usually run MkRam to build. My DDE isn't very recent, but you do need OSLib installed. I have never ran MkDebug! It is odd, because I have little in my boot sequence, and if I rmkill a...

Re: ADFFS 2.71 beta

I have tried out a couple of games, and things have been running and exiting quite nicely. So good stuff.

I still have my problem with pointerv and E-Type. I meant to attach this source earlier... It crashes even if there is no code in the pointerv hook!
