Carnage Inc WimpSlot

Post by Idge »

When trying to run Carnage Inc via ADFFS on my physical 4MB machine it fails with an error that there is not enough memory to start the application.
I have had a look at the Obey file for F1006701 and it has the following line
IF "<GameType$>"="One" THEN Wimpslot -Min 720K -Max 2000k ELSE Wimpslot -Min 2000k -Max 2000k.

The original run file has this line set as

IF "<GameType$>"="One" THEN Wimpslot -Min 720K -Max 2000k ELSE Wimpslot -Min 1100k -Max 2000k.

I have adjusted this in the obey file and the game runs. Is there a reason that it is set as a minimum of 2MB? When ADFFS is loaded as well as the disk image, there is not enough RAM to run it.

Thanks

I believe the game crashes or does odd things with only 1.1MB of Appspace. It's been a while since I last looked at it.
