Return of the Jedi floppy disk won't boot

Hi all,

I have a retail floppy disk copy of Return of the Jedi that displays garbage on the screen when trying to load the game from boot on my Amiga. I was looking at several different option including trying to repair it using an IPF file. I checked out the IPF files on the EAB FTP server. There are a couple of different dumps (2152 and 2153) and when booted in WinUAE, using an A500 configuration, do exactly what my disk does, which is really bizarre. So neither IPF dumps work.

Is there anyone else getting the same results as me when trying to run those IPF's in WinUAE? I have a Supercard Pro and have dumped my disk and the resulting image also refuses to boot in WinUAE.

EDIT: So in WInUAE the A500 quickstart seems to have 512k slow RAM set in addition to 512k chip RAM. Turned off slow RAM and the images booted. Will have to remove the ACA1221 from A1200 to test if the disk boots.

Needs a config with only 512kb, no fast ram!
