View Full Version : Vigilante [VISION FACTORY] doesn't work on emulators

Can't get this game to work.
Twist uploaded it (still online, so get it in time!), I've got the same crack but with a different CRC.
Tested with 0.8.8 R8, 0.8.14 R1 and 0.8.17 R2.
No way - stops at track #53.

Runs 100% here, nice game too, similar to Double Dragon.
Tested with WinUAE 0.8.17 R2 [AVI] (http://www.agnus.org.uk/WinUAE-AVI/)
Heres my config..

When the track stops at 78, press fire.

Thank you Frog! :)
Thanks very much for the config - I figured it out meanwhile.
Fasten your seatbelts, guys - this game only works if you have the SERIAL port ENABLED (!!!).
This is the cause for the floppy emulation stopping at Track #53.
Exactly this was my "problem" - the configs I use (except for Workbench configs with IBrowse/AWeb) have the serial port turned off by default due to numerous crashing problems in the past with games if it was enabled.
Well I've seen lots of weird emulators, but WinUAE is definitely the weirdest. ;):p

I have seen another game (don't remember the name) that writes to serial port and then waits for serial interrupt and of course gets stuck if serial emulation is off.
I'd say there are lots of weird Amiga games :)
