CDTV seems to use a version of Kickstart 1.3, so I could possibly investigate using Ross's tools to save some RAM there.

Are there any games that should try as a test? Possibly Lemmings 2: Tribes? I vaguely remember trying, and failing, to make a CDTV version of that.
Yeah you really notice the improvements Commodore made to the Kickstarts when making compilations for the CD32 then going back to 1.3 and the number of times i’ve read lots of stuff isn’t available to try and get RAM back until 2.+!

Yes add21k is one of the few tools i always add where needed. I would be grateful if you could share the tools Ross gave you, anything to get a little RAM back sounds great!

Don’t recall trying Lemmings 2 myself, could well work if you get enough RAM back.

Eep. Lemmings 2 HDD patch actually requires 1.5mb, that was never going to work.


In any case, if there's any games that seem like they should run in 1MB of RAM, but don't quite make it and Add21K doesn't quite free enough, you could try Close and Run:

https://github.com/earok/close-and-r...oserun.bin.68k

Which runs like this:

CloseRun "GameName"

(Game name needs to be in quotes, you can add multiple programs to launch in succession if they're all in quotes)


Or EndRun (an official Commodore tool, it's on the CDTV developer kit and should be fairly easy to find).

Hi, i got the general gist with a translator, unfortunately its a bit too much to ask for a ‘favour’ and will take a while to do, any spare time i’m putting doing the A-Z CD32 discs. Soz

questo lo so ci vuole molto tempo, io purtroppo non sapendo usare Amiga dos non sono in grado di continuare, per ogni problema deve chiedere, senza impegno per un prossimo tuo CD io continio di vedere se riesco a migliorare alcuni problemi su alcuni giochi che mi danno problema come CRUISE FOR A CORPSE che va in crash non carica, ma in generale sembra che funzionano quasi tutti i giochi
ad ogni modo ti ringrazio per queste ISO che hai creato, che hai condiviso per tutti, anche a me piace fare le cose e condividerle senza chiedere niente, al momento non il caddy per provare il CD

I know this it takes a long time, unfortunately I do not know how to use Amiga dos I am not able to continue, for every problem you have to ask, without obligation for your next CD I keep seeing if I can improve some problems on some games which give me problem like CRUISE FOR A CORPSE crashing not loading, but in general it seems like almost all games work
anyway thank you for these ISOs you created, which you shared for everyone, I also like to do things and share them without asking for anything, at the moment not the caddy to try the CD
