Apologies for being absent lately.

Between work, projects and this stupid UK heatwave I haven't been in the mood to compete... just as well as most of my absence was during the competitions summer break!


Anyway, the ADF's linked above are unstable - completely. I have tried various setups (A500, A600, A1200), various CPU's (68000, 68010, 68040), various OS's (2.0 and 3.1) and all give varying errors - all fatal
To summarize, so far after loading a table (pressing F1-F4 on title screen and disk activity finishes) the game has crashed with errors 8000 0003 (uneven address, 68000 only) and 8000 0004 (illegal instruction, even on 68040 CPU!). I finally got table 4 (rallyying) to load, played a few games and then the game crashed again, only this time it was 8000 0005 (divide by zero).

I shall continue to play, if I can get the game to work...

Oh dear! All going pear shaped then, try on a standard A500 config and see how you do. I am playing on WHDLoad and two of the tables give me an access fault and quit! Any ideas WHD people?

Obsession Update:
It seems the ADFs supplied originally contaminated a bug; which meant non of the tables actually loaded. To solve this, I spent hours trying to get the WHDLoad version to install using ADFs. IF THE PLAYER HAS 2MB RAM, they can download both disks and follow the on-screen prompts. The game will install to RAM: and run from there. Non of your highscores will be saved but all tables have been tested as working on wb3.0/3.1 020 and 030 machines, so will be fine running on anything with 2mb or more.

New ADF 1: (disk 2 is the same) = https://www.dropbox.com/s/4idcrkv7lv...ssionDisk1.adf

Thanks for that, I've updated the first post so hopefully some more people will find it easier to play. If someone finds some working 'normal' ADFs too, please share with us and I will add that too

When I now play only Desert Run for example, the score will be added to my previous Aquatic Adventure score?
Or each time I need to play all 4 tables?

You can play them at your leisure, no need to play them all at once.

Just joking lolz, welcome back mate!

As for this game:
Nice music, OK graphics, horrible gameplay.
Laggy flipper response.. unpredictable ball movement.. trying to shoot ramps is like firing a bowling ball at a straw.

X-ile Zone is the foulest table of all.
I find if you hit the ball into the top section with the bumpers - chances are it will drop straight down between the flippers.. It's horrible lol

Yeah, x does not have good design. Only one time I managed to get the 1st Lieutenant rank for three accomplished missions.
