Problems with Drakkhen

I owned an original copy of the game Drakkhen, back in the 90s. As both my Amiga and the game disks are unavailable as of now, I tried to rely on some ROMs and WinUAE.

So, I entered the first castle and I found an old man. I remember that in the original game he gives some hints, but now, the "hints" were something about "don't play the game from copies or death will find you". I guessed that it was a copy-protection mechanism preventing from copied disks to be played. Since I never played the game with pirated copies, I don't know how they should behave

The next time I restarted the game I started wandering in the 3d game world. And then the game suddenly crashed, displaying the same message: don't play from copied disks.

I tried with several other downloaded adf roms, including an ipf rom. The result was the same, even with the ipf version. So I guess that the game code did not accept the emulated environment of the WinUAE, and thought it was pirated??

Now, that's a very dystopian scenario, but I see that some people DID play the game in WinUAE. Is there a trick, or did they rely on an extremely rare ipf rom? How did you do this, guys?

Some cracks and trainers are not compatible with some memory configurations. Also try to read hints from pirates in cracktros.

Thanks for the reply. Any ideas why the uncracked ipfs didn't work? Or are they considered cracked no matter what?

Also, I would appreciate any specific guidelines from people who did play the game.
