Deluxe Galaga v2.5 Fixed for A500 KS1.3

Hello to all, i noticed that the current TOSEC disc "Deluxe Galaga v2.5 (1994-12-23)(Vigdal, Edgar)(SW-R)[h Abnormal Data]" didn't run on a KS1.3 A500, allthough is expected to (cf the message at startup). So I fixed it then tested it successfully on my A500 ECS Agnus (512Kb chip + 512b slow). ADF in "TheZone!" for everyone, enjoy^^.

I can probably answer this one on Vollldo's behalf since I've been looking at "Deluxe Galaga" .ADFs today

The original "Deluxe Galaga v2.5 (1994-12-23)(Vigdal, Edgar)(SW-R)[h Abnormal Data].adf" disk boots and says:



...but whoever created the disk had actually added the line "setpatch30 quiet" in the "s/startup-sequence" file meaning that it would never run on a standard A500:



Vollldo just removed this line

good, no secret tricks or viruses involved then
I assume the ADF was created by a guy who had kick 3.0.

Must have been but then why specify:

________________________________________________

please note that this has been set up to run on kickstart v1.3

KS 2.0 <blah>

KS 3.0 <blah>

________________________________________________


Anyway

Agreed, so he probably re-hacked the disk

...then the correct TOSEC name should include [h] x 2

the [hacked] startup sequence of the original TOSEC ADF is from 31-dec-2000,
while the TEXT file (and GALAGA executable) has a timestamp of 2-sep-92

I guess that proves the theory
