Install Syndicate on hard disk, keeping trainer

I use WinUAE and I want play from "DH0:" this version of "Syndicate (1993)(Electronic Arts)(M3)[h FLT][t +10 ATX](Disk 1 of 4)".

If I use the installer, the trainer stop working.

If I copy the content of the 4 disks in one bootable hard disk, the executable of the game freezes.

The "startup-sequence" of the "Disk 1" is:



"ATX" is the trainer and executes well. "breloc" is the executable of the game, and and freezes when running from "DH0".

I've only been able to try the most obvious, changing "df0" to "dh0", but same result.

The file "BRELOC" is specifically for loading from floppy and won't help for loading from hard drive.

When you use the installer, it generates a separate executable called "SYNDICATE" which uses AmigaDOS for loading and not the RNC hardware file loader that BRELOC uses.

I'm guessing Anthrox only did a trainer for the floppy loader version and didn't touch the hard drive installed version.

Back in 1993, hard drives were only just starting to take off with the advent of the A1200 and the ability to use cheaper 2.5 hard drives.

You can edit your saved games with MCE, this should make it easy enough to complete any level.

Thanks Galahad/FLT and Minuous for reply :great

Then hope some expert can add trainer options to the WHD version.

Yeah, mate. I had located it, but I can't get it to work.

Neither from WB or bootable HD. I execute before "go" (from WB) or with this startup-sequence in bootable HD:


syn / q

I suppose that like the floppy version trainer, it waits for an alternate executable (as the "breloc" in the floppy disk).

...bit busy right now.

Tested with the IPF [0739]. I can confirm that the HD trainer is not working.
Neither the unlimited (all) nor the InGame keys. You get shooted & killed by the first guard.
Maybe another set of disks is required ?
