Both packages won't run on my A1200/Blizzard 1230. Black screens and crash after intro.

Seriously? Those games are know to work nicely on turbo cards.

I'll install those today evening and check what's wrong on EC030.

Are your MaxTransfer settings correct? Does the same happen if you copy everything to RAM:? What happens if you use CUSTOM1 to skip the intro?

CUSTOM 1 results in a crash back to the WorkBench. I never had problems with the MaxTransfer settings (regarding to WHDLOAD), should they have a certain value for the Excalibur slaves?

I also installed the generic WHDL packages from Aladin, they work (but won't let you save without a error message).

Quick test to see if your MaxTransfer settings are correct: Install to RAM: and start the patch, if it works then you need to fix your MaxTransfer settings.

I have the same problem on my 1240 Blizzard. By accident, I tried it with older version of WHDLOad (V18.0) and it works. The game seems to have a problem with the latest version of WHD.18.3.
I also had a few crashed, I will report later on Mantis Bug Tracker with detailed report.

Question, is it ok with 18.2? I'm not using 18.3 due problems with default quit key - http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=88343

Another question - default quit key is set in prefs in s directory ?

I have made/tested the patch using WHDLoad 18.3 so there must be some other problem. Can you rename any files called "WHDLoad.key" that are found on your system and check again please?

Should work fine with 18.2 too.

I tried the ramdisk test, same problem (so not maxtransfer related) and I tried renaming te key (so no registered to: in the splash screen) ... same problem. In the WHDL version I exchanged the very old WHLOAD 1.3 Generic with a new one ... same problem.

Ransom informed me of an issue with the US version (SPS 2852).

If you keep the intro running and don't skip it, it'll ask for disk 3 (!), quite peculiar as the game only comes on two disks.

In case anybody is wondering, it's not a WHDLoad issue, the original booted from the ipf does the same thing.

Can you run the patch with the option "FILELOG" and attach/upload the resulting .whdl_log file please?

Thanks for mentioning, I saw this happening once when I made the patch but couldn't reproduce it. I'll fix this in an updated version.

Maybe same version as SPS 2853 ?

Hah, SPS 2853 also requests a non existant disk 3 if you let the intro run.

Thanks, files aren't loaded correctly. This looks like the same problem I faced when doing the patch and hence ended up patching the file loader which fixed it for me. I'll have to investigate.

Current patch supports a 3-disk version and 2 2-disk versions. Your version is most probably already supported, try installing the game and if the patch doesn't support your version send me the disk images please.
