Thanks for your help Jon

have you tried increasing the min value?
I've tried increasing it to 1536K but that didn't seem to help

the only way that error can occur is if its trying to run in MODE 49. Have you gone into the Choices on the Icon Bar app and switched it to MODE 13? You might also want to select the Low memory option.
I think I've tried every combination, here's a GIF to illustrate:

Wait! :lol: In my haste I didn't even notice that the error message had changed!

I'll do some more experimenting and report back!

Nope, sadly I'm stuck on a similar error screen saying

Code: Select all

Unable to allocate resource table
That feels like the most promising error, but however I tweak the min memory options or low memory setting I can't get past that it seems

I guess it's hard coded to 2048K min for a reason then. It obviously needs more ram that you can squeeze out of your 2MB machine. I suspect the low ram option isn't actually doing anything and perhaps the source code was modified before it reached me, to be more geared towards a RiscPC with more ram.

That seems likely as I have a boxed version, but sadly it's a later release with strong ARM support.
It does run on an A3000, but with the music screwed up and it runs at a snails pace!
Also the copy protection has been removed, which is no fun!
I'm guessing that in adding strong ARM support they introduced quite a few regressions! :|

Here's a pic of my copy:

For a speed comparison, here's the JASPP version under RISCOS 3.11 with 4MB of RAM (A3000):

And here's the version I have on floppy under the exact same configuration:

It does work with RISCOS2 and 2MB of RAM, but it's not enjoyable.

I know the original release wasn't like that, but it seems like the original has been somewhat lost!
