[Sega CD --> Amiga] Heart of the Alien

Not WHDLoad but I've just added Heart of The Alien Redux to /Commodore_Amiga/Retroplay/HDLoaders dir on ftp.
Finally we can play Another World II on Amiga.

OMG!!!

That is one of the best posts / news I've read in a long time

Who did this, how did they get the SegaCD version to work on an Amiga etc?

We should probably make a dedicated thread for this really

Edit: created a new thread, hope you don't mind Retroplay?

This is brilliant indeed. 'Amiga Gaming'-wise 2016 is arguably the best year in this century so far.

Nope, it's Another World Part II that takes place after Another World finishes

i do something wrong. after the intro/cracktro when workbench should load:
Quote:
HOTA-GAME.exe
Program failed (error #80000004).
Wait for disk activity to finish.
and then guru at reboot.

config: 020, full ecs, 1mb chip, 512mb slow, 8mb z2 fast. ks 2.05 (a600hd)
if i change fast ram from z2 to motherboard fast ram, then simply shell opens.

//edit: after i edited the last option, second z2 fast (board) ram to 8mb (max),
the game it now seems to work, at least the game intro sequence is running.

but i can't get past this screen where you have to enter letters.
