Regarding CD32 compilations!


One of my friends has recently got a CD32 (I've only ever had an A500 myself ), and he was showing me a series of '200, 350, 444 and 888 compilation CDs' that he got from this forum... (Please lock this if this topic is not permitted on this forum.)

I'd like to know a little more about these awesome compilations... where do they come from... who makes 'em, and how? I'm guessing they do some kind of immense trickery using a RAD disk... but beyond that, I don't know. (And also... why does the CD spin backwards for a moment? O_o)

I also noticed that several games seemed to make the screen go blank and the CD32 power LED brighter whenever they accessed the disk. (I assume that's what they're doing at least.) Is there a both-mouse-buttons way of getting around this?

I was just about to post a similar thread, when I saw this one!

If you want an example of the flickery thing that smurfguy's talking about, try loading Pushover or The Chaos Engine 2.

The flickering couldn't be removed because it is due to the only 2Mb of RAM of the CD32.WHDLOAD can't preload all files on the 2Mb, so it unload files not needed anymore on RAM to load needed ones,that's why the screen flicker.
If you don't want flickering on UAE, just set Fastmem to 8 MB and it will be resolved
On a real CD32, you need to buy an SX-1 or an SX-32 to be able to add more RAM
