Various HD-installed Games

I've had problems with quite a few WHDLoad installed games on WinUAE - do I have incorrect settings or do the installers just prefer the real thing?

To be more specific, the following crash WinUAE or the game: Alien Breed 1 & 2, Body Blows, Fury of the Furries, Jimmy White's Whirlwind Snooker, Monkey Island 1 & 2, Project X and The Blues Brothers.

Workbench settings are: 68040, 2mb chip, 8mb fast, AGA chipset.

Any info appreciated.

What version of WinUAE are you using?

I had problems with Monkey Island 1 in R6, but R7 runs it perfectly - haven't tried R8 yet.

Also, that 68040 will be a JIT cpu. Toni mentioned that JIT cpu's are not perfect. For instance, they caused artefacts in WHDload Turrican II for me. Try going back to a non-JIT cpu, like the 680EC20, for games. You might have to avoid using the fastest possible option as it doesn't work correctly in R7, not sure if it's fixed in R8. Instead select the cpu/chipset slider and place it all the way towards cpu.

In R7, I get very good compatibility with WHDload and non-jit cpus.

Also what WB setup are you using? A non-Picasso standard wb 3.0/3.1?

Thanks for the suggestions, but no joy I'm afraid.

I've now upgraded from R5 to R8, lowered the CPU to 68020EC and tried a few of the same games. They don't crash the emulator this time, but either result in a recoverable alert (yellow) or a coredump crash of WHDLoad.

And yes, it's a standard 8 colour 640x495 Workbench, nothing too flashy.
