Reasoning with trolls

Does anyone have that one?
BTTR says it doesn't work on emulators. I'd like to check it out on the latest WinUAE version ... TIA

yup i've got the tosec version Reasoning with Trolls (19xx)(-)[b][o]
and unfortunately it still seems bad, it crashes immediately and i've tried a few diff configs all with the same result.

i'll upload it to the zone for you though maybe you'll have more success.

I just tested with WinFellow and I immediately get a Guru but I also noticed the adf got the wrong size (912.384 Bytes) Maybe a bad dump ?

Maybe it needs to be a larger disk image?

Happy FIXED IT!

Thanks for upping the overdump, Belgarath!
I FIXED IT!

UNIX strikes again ...
- renamed this TOSEC naming victim to rwt_overdmp.adf

typed this:
tail < rwt_overdmp.adf --bytes=901120 > rwt.adf
(that reads: go from the end 901120 bytes up, truncating the first 11264 bytes!)

That's it ! I found ANOTHER boot block @ track 22 on the overdump.
Cool adventure game! :bounce
And rare as hell

@andreas

You are really too fast for me I did the same thing with a Win Hex Editor (Cut the Bytes) and it worked too

Would be kewl anyway to know if a working non-Tosec Version is floating around somewhere

ummm .. this game seems to be suitable for children rather than for us guys ...
the trolls give you VERY trivial mathematical and logical puzzles if you can't pay them...hmmm...

STUMPED? This a joke, mate?

Take 'S' out of 'CAST' and you get a 'CAT'.
Easy as pie.
