Nothing indeed... if these options work and don't add some load on me.

Well, do it if you want. You know what i think of this and there is nothing else to add.

Yes, me too... but trust me, they do

...not everyone can remember their Amiga skills from 20 - 30 years back.

Some may not have even had a hard drive; I'm definitely in that category by only ever owning an A500 (512KB Chip & 512KB Slow RAM) as a teenager

If it wasn't for WinUAE; I wouldn't have learnt the new knowledge / skills that I have today

No one having any issues with any of the .ADFs should contact you; full stop!!!

...and if anyone does; point them to me

Wow... A stock A500 runs just like an Atari ST pretty well.

...there was a slight issue with the joystick that occurred on some OS flavours.

Today meynaf corrected this

For hard drive installation, grab his updated .LZX file from here.

Regarding both "unofficial" .ADFs; I've updated accordingly and attached to this post.

Slightly off topic: Would it be possible to do a conversion of the ST version of Defender of the Crown?

Why??? The Amiga version absolutely rocks!!!

...never played the Atari ST version; but I'm sure it doesn't compare.

The graphics and sound are definitely not as good on the ST, but there quite a few more game play options (on par with the C64 version).

Really? From watching your linked video I don't see anything that actually enhances the experience gameplay wise.

The Amiga version is the definite version IMHO

...anyway; if your want the Atari ST version ported to the Amiga; do as I have done many times now; pay an interested coder a decent sum of money.

If I remember correctly, the CDTV version of Defender of the Crown has all the game-play additions that the ST/64-versions have.

Is it possible to save the game in this version?

I didn't have any luck finding the manual for the ST version to know whether and how this is supported. I couldn't find a save command anywhere while playing.

I don't think you can save Minuous.

To be honest, I've never seen a save option in any Cinemaware games.

If you use WinUAE though then just use Save States

The Amiga version has this feature.

The main reason I wanted to know was to add support for the ST version of the game to the Multi-game Character Editor.
