Saving WHDLoad games on V4

Hello Amiga people,

I have been trying to get WHDLoad games to save in my V4, latest core, with Coffin R57, but I get no joy.

I have tried several games (gobliins 2, Heart of China, Monkey Island, Conquests of Camelot) and the result is the same everytime I try to save my progress:

Bad stack pointer on entering WHDLoad
via 'resload_Examine'.

Otherwise the games run great. Please, help!

I'd start by making sure that filesystem is not corrupted by running pfsdoctor check and repair (if needed)

Hello, mate, thanks for the answer.

I already checked with pfs doctor and found no problems. I also performed a clean coffin install and checked again. I also reinstalled WHDLoad...same result.

Then, you could also check if WHDSaves folder isn't pointing to a non-existing folder. You can check which folder is used from S:WHDLoad.prefs file

I checked this as well, even tried saving in other locations, but nothing worked.

I am informed by the Apollo forum guys that this is a known issue without a fix as of yet. :S So I guess it's back to old-school HD installing for now for these games.

Thanks for all your suggestions, mate!

Or. If you have enough memory, copy the install in RAM: then run whdload from there, and copy back the savegame when quitting.

If that works you can script this.

I would have suggested to use JST instead (you can try) but even if it works well, the save feature may be buggy. Well, worth a try.

These sound like neat, clever workarounds, thanks jotd!
