The Immortal from HD (no WHDLOAD)

Again with my Minimig, it's the last game I want to instal for now.
This game kept me hacking and slashing for days in the old times!

I'm trying to HD-install it myself, as it seems to have dos-readable disks, but it seems those disks are...empty!
Do you know if the files are somewhat hidden or something? Is this game HD-installable without whdload? This is a case of EXTREME loading times for a great game imho.

regards

The game doesn't load physical dos files, it has its own diskloading system that reads tracks.

You will find this is the case with most Amiga games, as it leads to faster loading and slight extra room on disk as a trackloaded/sector loaded game doesn't need to preserve AmigaDOS file information on track 40.

From my hazy memory, The Immortal is 1meg only and preloads a lot of stuff into extra ram before you play the game, which might account for the long load time.

Isn't the JST version the same as the WHDLoad version? The info file seems to be very familiar and it mentions WHDLoad anyway. Are the memory requeriments any lower with those JST installers?

[EDIT] Ok, got the WHDLoad version to work by deleting the PRELOAD tooltype, and then booting the Minimig with 1.5MB Chip RAM, no FAST RAM at all, no startup sequence
Ohh, the way of the poor man, how much knowlegde it brings

BTW I found a huge bug (and fixed it) in JST & whdload: later level loading crash/have corrupt gfx. Look out for the new release (2018 wow!!)

Strange that noone ever reported this.

Because the game difficulty is so annoying that no one played it to later levels? ;-)

In slave 3.0, I have added a trainer (infinite energy) and level select. Yes, this is hard, even with those... less frustrating, at least: you win all fights with trolls & goblins.
