@Jotd (bd2 & hellbound beta)
did you change anything in the kickstart loading? He tells me that my kickstart kick40063.a600 is incorrect while all the other games use that of 1200

jotd 11 June 2020 06:14

get a new kick40063 file the one you have is probably corrupt. Happened to someone else here a few months ago.

it uses that one by default or slave would not work on 68000. If you have a 68020+ just delete it, that works too.

I just tested and it's working, but as You mentioned there are glitches. I hope You could remove them.

I also made two icons (NewIcon and ROMIcon), and put them to The Zone!

Edit: And maybe think about HD version not floppy (there's a disk request blink in one moment)

jotd 11 June 2020 11:27

disk request blink is not an issue. Graphical glitches are an issue. They don't seem to be blitter errors, rather sync errors due to the lack of double buffering, so the screen is viewed while it's been refreshed (like in test drive II)

I have to test with 68000/approx speed. thanks for the icons.

bingo, and fixed. Should appear on whdload page in a few... Which should be the next of the series?

That's a fact: 99% of games need a whdload install... there's always something that needs fixing.

NeoHippie2016 21 June 2020 20:28

Cool! Thank you for creating installs for the parts of these series. Beneath "Rebirth" there are working 1 or 2 other games of it (like the "Workbench Invasion") from my HD. Sad, that the whdl Generics from Aladin don't work... It is much work to create installs for it?

jotd 21 June 2020 20:44

Aladin? What's that?

NeoHippie2016 21 June 2020 20:46

I mean the member "Aladin" ;) (that guy, who uploaded many whdl generics in the past...)

jotd 21 June 2020 22:27

okay, so what are exactly the games where the generic doesn't work?

If you tell me which games, I may try to do something. Black Dawn II was quite a lot of work, there was a lot of fixing. VI needed a small fix, otherwise okay.

NeoHippie2016 21 June 2020 22:48

Unfortunately almost all games (including Parasite 1 & 2) do not work! Only "BD Rebirth", "BD IX - Workbench Invasion" and "BD Story - Hell & Gone" run properly for me! (but these three i've installed manually, not through whdl Generic)!

Do you need more information about my Amiga system or something?

jotd 21 June 2020 23:11

no, I just need 1) images of games that don't work with generic install 2) do you really want them done

NeoHippie2016 21 June 2020 23:22

Hmm yes, how about the first part: "Black Dawn I"? Can you have a look into it?

coldacid 22 June 2020 03:15

Yes please, let's get the game that started it all.

jotd 22 June 2020 16:55

okay, I'll do it.

NeoHippie2016 22 June 2020 16:59

Thank you! :)

Solo Kazuki 22 June 2020 17:52

Big thanks, JOTD. I just played for a short time to check and for now everything works ok.

BTW: Maybe next could be Legions of Dawn?

BTW2: Do somebody have problem with showing ROMicon? It looks ok on my OS/config, but on WHDLoad page it's blank image.

jotd 23 June 2020 00:00

Black Dawn running under whdload here. But game is too fast and you hit walls more than you should. Must regulate speed.

Black Dawn III - Legions of Dawn is also running here, but same as Black Dawn II: cannot save game. Write error in DF0: ...

My "99% of the games need fixing" theory is confirmed :)

I've created a GlowIcons icon for Hellbound at a somewhat larger size (95x71) than the NewIcons icon, since I tend to have problems in iGame with icons in the NewIcons format.

Solo Kazuki: Yeah, I don't think the RomIcon comes out looking very good. Here's all the icons as they appear on my 3.x setup with icon.library 51.4.533:

Solo Kazuki 23 June 2020 17:40

Icon should looks like this


I have classic Workbench with MagicWB. Icon was made with Iconian.

jotd 28 June 2020 09:04

Black Dawn III is almost finished. Black Dawn is done too. Waiting for whdload site to go up, hopefully in a few days. I can zone the installs if needed.

BTW found Black Dawn AMOS source code in the 3rd installment:


Full instructions on the requirements of this program (plus info on
how to subscribe to an excellent AMOS diskmag) are in the REMS in the
listing itself. Plenty of monsters, plenty of fun - enjoy it!
