Cannon Fodder!

Hi, I've only recently discovered WinUAE and have had great fun introducing my daughter to some of the games that took up such a ridiculous percentage of my time in my teenage years. Monkey Island and Speedball II in particular were at least partly responsible for my failure to either hold down a girlfriend or get into Oxford!

However for some reason I just can't get a single adf version of Cannon Fodder to work. I've had no trouble getting hold of the adfs, it's just that not a single one of them will get any further than the intro screen (with the theme music and the poppy logo) before restarting. This is annoying me way more than it ought to, so if anyone can help I'd be eternally grateful!

You need to use at least the A500+ default config for cannon fodder to work.

It works with regular A500 configuration but it has stupid extra memory check that requires cycle-exact mode.

1M chip configuration works without cycle-exact.

Also note that you need 1M chip if you want to format a savedisk, at least with some CF versions or it will crash during formatting. This is a game bug.
