Never mind. Cheers for looking at though, always appreciated

Next time I can visit a mates house, (Tier 3 Bury lockdown, grrrrrr,) I'll probably bring a memory stick and give it a go there. Just the bloody annoyance of it.

Include winuaelog.txt (tick logging option in misc panel before starting emulation, if you can't find it, check winuaebootlog.txt last line that is usually in winuae root directory) and config file as usual

Many thanks'

Hopefully attached as requested. I have attached 2 x logs - one for main configuration running WinUAE 4.4.0 (before and after game loaded - was not sure which needed) and another running 3.6.1 (named as such) where I attempted to start again - this second one I removed all ROMS from the folder bar the one's needed for Gallagher's Gallery but the same exact problem (didn't attach config for this)

Attached the winuaebootlog for 3.6.1 - could not find the winuaelog - stated held in C:\Program Files\WinUAE\winuaelog.txt - but not there (even tried showing hidden files)

So problem for all the ALG games with none of them running, but just included the config. for Gallagher's Gallery and main WinUAE

Made sure I exported Arabuusimiehet from the registry - although maybe an error here. I didn't not delete it, just right clicked and selected export

Very strange but I apologise in advance if plainly done something stupid / been an idiot (not unusual)

Hopefully uploaded / attached what is needed - if made a mistake happy to do again - not really done this before - long time Amiga user, noob with technical issues!

This is the problem:

Quote:
SetTimeFormat format 80004005
WinUAE tries to use frame based seeking (can seek to any frame which is required to play correct video pieces) but codec returns "Unspecified error".

-> bad codec, probably from some codec pack.

Many thanks for taking a look at this. Very much appreciated.

Was the only thing I could think of and you have confirmed it.

May be something to do with the Tex Murphy game Overseer (love the Tex Murphy games) I remember last year or so I had a problem running the game and a fix was installing what I think is the codec ffdshow

Too much of a coincidence

Least I have something to go on now

Thanks again

Update....downloaded and installed the K-Lite codec pack 1575

Pleased to confirm Mad Dog and Mad Dog 2 (need to brush up my Italian - pity no English version available?) load and run fine and both look really good, so much better than other versions.

For some reason Gallagher's Gallery had the same problem as it did before. But happy that I can play Mad Dog!

Will prob try a different codec pack as well going forward to see if that helps with GG

There should not be any need for codec packs, at least with later Windows versions to run these games.

I guess Gallagher's uses different codec than Mad dog.

I tried to complete Mad Dog McCree a few months back.

I had issues with one part though, and no matter how much I tried I couldn't get past.

It's when the old man is tied up to dynamite; I couldn't seem to shoot the lantern or fuse wire (forgot which it was now) so always lost.

I'd be interested if you can get past this; or it's a possible bug.

Just got past that part, shot the fuse on the floor when he is tied up, then he tells you about the booby trapped mine

You then shoot a map on a table outside to find out the direction to the hideout and use the posts to say which direction you want to follow
