Don't worry guys; using a standard A1200 Quickstart works.

...swear I tried that previously

Anyway; all good now.

there's a whdload install: http://www.whdload.de/games/Jouster3.html

Hell of a Joust clone that one.

I know you prefer floppies, but...

Yeah I know, thanks though jotd

...I only really use when:

a) The only version available is via WHDLoad.
b) No good disk version exists; full stop.
c) There are major fixes over the original which have only been applied to the WHDLoad version.

in that case, none of the above applies maybe the need for a degrader on multiscan display, and the fact that you're sure that you return to a clean system on exit (some games can trash your system, even if they have a "quit" option).

Wait, I could add a switch to remove the intro. Oh, there's no intro...

that one you can even put it on a floppy with whdload and boot from it. That'll work

Hi Damien, just copy "Jouster3" from Aminet "Jouster3.lha" to your floppy version.
The .exe in ADF from TOSEC is broken...

Works also on bare A500 KS1.3 512+512KB.

Guys, I'm all good but appreciate the suggestions

...don't really know what happened a week or so when I first briefly tested. A1200 settings were the second thing I tried but didn't work so preceeded to try other model variations.

Anyway everything is working now with the .ADF.

Took a look at the file on Aminet: Jouster3

Definitely a later / improved version over the TOSEC version:

a) Longer animated title sequence.
b) Music playing in help sequence.
c) probably other improvements.

Files too big to fit on disk so I made a new one by crunching some files; attached
