It's too bad these games don't work properly. EOTB1/2 AGA with automapping would be awesome. I really hated plotting my own maps for RPGs back in the day.

Woohoo. I went to the floppy drives window and ejected disk 1 and inserted disk 2. That did it. Doesn't work with the quickstart window. Checking further, you don't have to eject disk 1, you can just...

Your reply is very cryptic. Had to google Tosec. Still not quite sure what it is. I'm using WinUAE. CRC32? You think the ADF files didn't download properly?

We both had 1200s at the time. No hard drives. So it would have been way more tortuous playing on a 500, eh? I remember we had a lot of time to trash talk each other between matches.

Well, I'm maybe a quarter of the way into level 3. I just spent a half an hour battling a dozen skeletons. This game can be extremely tedious, as well.
