The game Zitrax needs patching

A fun yet frustrating little game called Zitrax works fine on my A500 but no matter what I try (even using relokick) the game does not run at all on my A1200. Is anyone else having this issue and is there a way to fix it?

This is really amusing, a full of "do not program the Amiga in this way"
Illegal copper list/chipset access, unoptimized, over-bloated and single streamed race-beam code.

(no offence to original programmer, You always have to start somehow )

Patch in The Zone!

Bye,
ross

PS: please test, i've played too little time

And surely you have an A500 OCS, this doesn't even work on A500+

Thank you so much! I'll test this tomorrow because I'm in bed! I wish I knew the magic that you applied to it. I'm learning Amiga programming but I wouldn't even have a clue on how to fix this myself

It works great!! You're a god. I like how you modified the scroller on the title screen even though the scroller times out before it finishes displaying all your message haha. Feel free to fix that if you want to. Did you notice what happens when you reboot the Amiga after playing the game? The screen flashes yellow with creepy noises! I remember this used to freak me out as a kid. I'm assuming this was intentional by the game developer?

Yes, noticed this but laziness at best

[EDIT] upped fixed version, with a hidden message for you
