Batman The Movie: 1 and 2 disk versions: differences?

Hi, I noticed that on its HOL entry, there exists two versions. I've always been used to the 1 disk.

Tell me, what are the differences between them? Does the 2 disk version have all the ingame pictures like the ST and PC ones do?

The 1 disk version was created for the Batman pack, simply the game could be compressed to fit on one disk and it was cheaper for the many thousands of Batman packs distributed.

Fair enough. I remain mystified as to why Ocean didn't put the pictures on the Amiga version when the Atari ST one (!) did.

Be nice to be able to do a Eye of the Beholder jobby and put them in.

Those were the days when the ST version was the lead version

I dont know, if i understand right, is the compilation "Les justiciers 3" 1-disk or 2-disk?
If it is 1-disk and not copyprotected, please upload ADF for me.

Seems to be the 1-Disk version. HOL notes.

Notes: The game was also released as a single disk version, which is included in the French compilation LES JUSTICIERS 3, for example

I'm not sure that's right. I had the Batman pack and had the two disk version.

I had the Single disk version that came with the A500. Strange bug on my copy where the game locked up at the end of level 2 after the level end message.(justa black screen), so couldnt ever continue on. Years later trying the game again but using the level skip cheat , turned out the 3rd level would load fine this way, so hell knows what was wrong withthe game.

There was never any issues when it came to ripping the files for whdload version.

Please check it, probably we have to correct HOL info.

After a random bit of YouTubing today I came across this video:
[ Show youtube player ]
It compares the Amiga, ST and PC versions of Batman the Movie. They have spliced in some movie promo pix but the "Nice outfit" comic-book-style picture almost looks like it was part of the games imagery. Can anyone confirm if this is the case?
