Future Wars and Saving

Hi there.

So... I have ventured and found a working version of FW but now have run into a problem. The save games. I have tried formatting an empty adf for saving and whenever I try to access the disk while running the game it says it is not valid and then I can't exit the screen so I have to crash the emu.

Not good.

Can someone shed a little light on the subject of what might be going on and can it (or me) be fixed?

Thanks

ok so I did that

But here is my prob. I had found that disk before and I get the same thing now that I did then.

Whenever I put the disk in the drive the game says please insert a formatted diskette.

It won't let me out of that screen and won't recognize any disk I put in.

Please help, anyone.

I know, I had to do a double-take when I first saw this, too!

I remember this was really annoying.

The whdload version saves perfectly, though (I had a tough time making it work IIRC)

I can't get the WHDLoad version to work at all. I just get a black screen with a large cursor and it doesn't progress.

can you zip your FW whdload installation in the zone? I'll have a look at it.

I use Amiga Explorer which regularly errors out, so zipping isn't easy, but I think I got it working with WHDLoad. See bug tracker here: http://mantis.whdload.de/view.php?id=3306

ok, then it was an unsupported/corrupt version as expected.
