Cadaver - Lv4 savestate or level skip needed

Does anyone have a save state for the start of level 4 of Cadaver they could share? Or is there some other way I could skip to this level? I've just played through to the end of level 3 and when it attempts to load level 4 it crashes every time.

I may have some saves, yes. But are you sure your version isn't corrupt?

@jotd It could be that my version has become corrupt. It’s the Galahad cracked adf. I tried using a different crack levels disc to try and get around it, but no luck.

If you have a save state that might work then that’s great!

the level disk is not protected. Program disk is. So on cracks, disk 2 is the same as originals. So maybe the savegame you have got corrupt, that's possible.

I can provide game saves, maybe, but only as files (whdload)...

Did you manage to complete level 2 and 3 without help? If so: respect. the people who designed these levels are evil geniuses.

Yes. I’ve got as far as level 4 before, years ago. This has been a fresh play through trying to get back to where I left off. The puzzles can be tricky, but I find them mostly to be logical.

I won’t use help to get past anything if I get stuck. I’m too stubborn

I completed level 1, then looked the solution for all levels, several times... and that was 25 years ago, when I had some spare time

But I love that game. I'll try to dig out a whdload install + level save on the weekend (work gets seriously in the way ATM)

Thanks jotd, no rush

Brillant! Thanks a lot jotd. That would have been so frustrating to not be able to carry on.

Back to it!

lucky you not having played the 2 last levels yet (and the payoff maybe)

I'll have to wait till I have Alzheimer's disease so I forget all the levels of Gods & Cadaver and play them again as they were new

I have played a lot of level 4 of Cadaver back in the early 90s and can remember a lot of it, but I’ve never seen level 5. I remember getting stuck and not knowing what to do next. The level loops around and you end up in a room/corridor next to the starting room. It was around there I was stuck. I’m not sure if I missed something important maybe.

I did briefly have a look at the Payoff back then, but can’t remember that at all, so I’m looking forward to getting into that.

Payoff only has 4 levels, but they're harder. Even level 1 is hard.

If you really are stuck... Not a walk-through, this, based on the Amiga version, can be of interest

If I get stuck in Cadaver then that’s where I’ll stay. Stuck forever!

gimbal that was a fake spoiler. And Kroah reverse engineering work is just the best I've ever seen (on the best games ever!)

Did you manage to guess who is Kyzer Sose in this movie ? If so: respect. The script writer is an evil genius.
