I don't think I have those updates, but I think the Mods I compiled are still up on the ftp if you want to try them.

my friend has tried it days ago, but same as Hypersion version (without updates) has some problems with loading save states.
He need first run a new game, then loading a save state; if loading at the start directly a save state, He have a crash of WarpOS.
In the updates Q2 by Hyperion there are "savegame code fixes", so It's possible these updates fix this problem.

I know about this issues -I think I said something about crashes on loading levels-, but they happend randomly: Sometimes when loading a new level (without a prior savegame) and sometimes, as commented, just after saving a game. Generally, If I had a crash I could continue the match loading the last saved game.

Didn't know about those fixes: Game is largely updated with latest (at the time) Yamagi Q2 sources including minigl fixes, the 3 major mods, my "unbelievable windowmode " (a feature missing in all major comercial games of this kind), and much more.

The key difference in performance with Hyperion release is the use of an extended minigl render features: Those sources were never public and none of those features appeared on never minigl's (1.4 / 2.5) used nowadays.

So good to know that are the Amiga parts that have issues: At least a place to focus in.

hi Cowcat
first great respect for your great work !
my friend told me, He has solved the loading problems, with the update (found in his old backup), if useful for you for your porting, tell me please (if other guys need it, and It's legal to upload it in the zone, It could be upload there for everyone interested: question for the EAB's admins)

Considering the game is no longer available anywhere for purchase and also the fact that this is just an update patch; go for it
