Embryo

Hi,

just stumbled across the coverdisk of this game and remember really quite liking it. I have the CAPS/SPS image and would love to see it WHDload installed if anyone has the time?

Ta!

Some years ago (two or three) I sent to one of the developers images of Embryo. I can't remember who he was but so far there was no info from him...

The game comes on five disks (manual protection). On my config (BPPC 040) it doesn't work. They mention in manual about strange occurences on better
configs so probably this is it. The game can be promoted.

I have an original of german, french and croation version.

Angus offered UK version.

I sent images to VanDam but since then I had no info from him.

That is so cool. Like you didn't know that WHDLoad patches are made to originals...

Well, you mentioned manual protection so the crack could overcome that "problem" ;-) And sometimes WHDLoad installers DO work from cracks, its not very common, but a lot of them do ;-)

But they do not have any superiority over original. Patches are made for originals. Support of cracks is either coincidential or intended but not before original.

I 100% agree with you. WHDLoad installers are what is best done with the originals. Well, until someone makes one we will have to either do with the crack or the original and the manual One fine game though.

Ta!
I've started to create the slave today. The game works but it crashes when you want to return to the menu (move.w d0,$9a(a4) -> access fault a real "wtf?" experience because it just doesn't make sense. Yes, a4=$dff000.). Another problem is in the menu, there is some weird bug in the decruncher (I think) which causes random crashes. Funny thing is that in the prefs you can select english, french and croatian but the game also has german language support. I wonder why it was disabled. Anyway, I'm gonna watch the Simpsons movie now, expect first beta version of the slave tomorrow.

Seems it will take a little longer... Wasted the whole evening trying to find the reason for the crashes... So far without success. I already hate this game.

I did! As expected it totally rocks.

Edit: looks as if I have just fixed the intro at least. At least some good news.

Yay! Some good industrial music and it all works! I have fixed the crashes and so far the game seems to work fine for me. Download Embryo WHD BETA and report any problems you may find.

The game crashes sporadically with a "Illegal Instruction", when:

1. you enter the protection code
2. you press CTRL for the preferences

Try it 4x = 2x crashes, 2x no crashes

Edit: Tried it 8-10 times again. Now it works fine, strange.

Edit2: And now it crashed again at the protection screen. Pressed a lot of "55555...".

Thanks, I'll investigate! Removing the protection was actually the funniest part of all.

Hmm, couldn't reproduce the crash but I've applied a fix that fixed the crash in the game, try this updated slave and tell me if it fixes the problem.

Nope, crashed once again during the protection entry. I guess, we need more testers.
