Murder Makes Strange Deadfollows CDTV
Heya guys,

Is anybody able to get this running in WinUAE?

You can get a CloneCD image from the EAB FTP Server here.

Tried a standard Quickstart CDTV and different CDTV ROMs; the game starts booting, you see the CDTV logo, continues loading but then nothing...

In this thread Murder makes strange Deadfollows, Bernd says he has it working:

You should never give up waiting...

The game is similar to "Case of the Cautious Condor" which is from the same company. Additionally it comes with a nice poster (squeezed into the jewel case) and audio tracks. It also runs fine on WinUAE and will sometime appear on BTTR...

Here are some screenshots:

Hmmm, thought I'd try an older WinUAE version and it works fine in v3.0.0:


I can't get it to work in any later versions of WinUAE though :sad

Toni; attached are full logs from v3.0.0 and v4.2.1.

Try ticking the NTSC box. Works for me on 4.2.

DamienD 09 June 2019 20:56

Very interesting Arnie.

Indeed that works :great

...strange that you would need this though; this is the first game I've ever had to do this on.

murder.exe returns to CLI if PAL (possibly region protection, possibly some stupid bug?). Visible if copper list back ground color is adjusted in debugger.

Cheers Toni ;)

Weird that it works in v3.0.0, but not worth worrying about.

With the other "Tiger Media" game; The Case Of The Cautious Condor; it's actually the opposite i.e. it won't work with NTSC ticked :crazy

Are you saying that this game doesn't work in pal mode?

DamienD 10 June 2019 15:21

No, The Case Of The Cautious Condor works in PAL but not NTSC i.e. totally opposite to Murder makes strange Deadfollows ;)

Here's one that I can't get Working: Another World CDTV.


It goes to red screen every time. Maybe the ISO is corrupt?

When loaded from workbench The Another World launcher on the CD locks up Workbench.

EDIT: Arcade Pool requires ntsc mode too.

Retro-Nerd 10 June 2019 16:07

Another World is a custom CDTV version anyway. Not sure if it was properly made.

Toni Wilen 10 June 2019 16:35

I'll do real CDTV test later.. Unless someone else is faster.

Arnie 13 June 2019 22:07

Any luck with this Toni?

the game runs at me only with 1,5 MB (1 mb chip ram, 512k bogomem) with WinUAE 3.1.0
