... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 1 of 3)[h RNX - QTX][t +16 AC].adf
... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 1 of 3)[h RNX][KS2.0].adf
... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 1 of 3)[h RNX][t +16 AC].adf
... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 1 of 3)[h RNX][t +3 ATX].adf

... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 2 of 3)[h RNX].adf
... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 3 of 3).adf

... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 3 of 3)[a].adf

Try using another disk 3 or even the .IPFs.

Cheers for the info Gzegzolka. That's the set I'm using so will need to change then...

Can you remember if the end sequence / graphics loaded from Disk 3 or some other disk?

Edit: actually, I was using this Disk 1: Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 1 of 3)[h PDY][t +16 Backlash].adf

Ok, home now and have tested. This is the corrupt screen issue after completing the game:



Luckily the [t +16 Backlash] disk has a "[HLP]" = "Skip Planet" option...

Anyway, tested all Disk 2's with the following .ADFs and even with the .IPF substituted but the corruption is there:

a) Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 1 of 3)[h PDY][t +16 Backlash].adf
b) Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 3 of 3).adf

Might be because I used cheats or parts are loaded / stored in memory from other disks, though I doubt it...

More testing needs to be done

Have now also tried every single Quickstart / configuration that I can think of in WinUAE and the issue remains

...even tried finishing all the "Disk 2" planets first, then the "Disk 1" planet followed lastly by the "Disk 3" planets; which means the end sequence is loaded from Disk 3. Same outcome...

Either it's a bug in the original or maybe an issue with WinUAE; I don't know...

Can someone with a real Amiga test please?

Use these .ADFs as it doesn't make a difference what ones:

... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 1 of 3)[h PDY][t +16 Backlash].adf
... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 2 of 3).adf
... Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 3 of 3).adf

If you play the game sequentially according to the planet images then these are the codes:

Code:
1st Planet Complete   ZZZZZZZP
2nd Planet Complete   PLSSCKMC
3rd Planet Complete   TDNYTHNG
4th Planet Complete   RGGGGGGR

Have you tried all available versions of disk 2? Make a savestate just before the ending loads, then replace with another. This has worked for me with other games.

Do not think this is an WinUAE issue. It may be a problem with the original. I am curious now, so will probably play this next. Will of course not use trainer and use another version of disk 1.

Yep, that's my ending corrupted cut-scene plus there are lot of eggs/dinos that will jump out from Pinkie vehicle. As for codes I got them too, to be more correct:
1st Planet Complete ZZZZZZZP
1, 2nd Planet Complete PLSSCKMC
1,2, 3rd Planet Complete TDNYTHNG
1,2,3, 4th Planet Complete RGGGGGGR (only techno planet left to select)

I play it on A1200 quickstart configuration with disk drive speed set to full.

In the end I was tested with the Disk 1 [t +16 Backlash] .ADF and using the .IPFs for both Disk 2 & 3.

I use an equivalent configuration to Quickstart A500 - 1.3 ROM, ECS Agnus, 512 KB Chip RAM + 512 KB Slow RAM.

I didn't use fastest possible drive speed when testing as this can sometimes cause issues...

again a supposed fix uploaded!
The reason for corrupted gfx is a wrong named file, also on original release!
file "endblock" > "endbocks" as in release by "Rednex"(pre-release!?)

Oh wow; you are on fire at the moment mai!!!

...will test this when I get home tonight

Thanks for the details also; will need to do the same thing on Disk 3 as you can play / finish the planets in different order therefore, the end sequence may be loaded from Disk 2 or 3 depending...

Awesome work as always mai

This is a good game but takes time to learn. Took almost an hour for me to figure out how to finish the first level! And another hour to figure out the rest (the shop items etc). A longplay of this will be long! Not sure if you need to complete all 60 levels. Seems you can choose route on the map already after second level.

...And the eggs? Seems there are three on on each level. But you only have to collect one to finish the level? Collecting them all just gives you more money?

Yes, You can finish level by grabing only one level. You earn cash by collecting eggs, flowers and breaking blocks with flower picture. Just play two times first level on rock planet. Buy glove to break blocks, spring so Pinkie's pod could jump and "extender" so pod could extend higher and grab ledges. Now You can grab those eggs like a pro, on next stage buy rest of upgrades. Each time You pick up egg You should back to pod and put it inside. Very problematic is grabbing eggs under watter, they will fall slower and You should let them fall on Pinkie back so he will grab them automatically. If egg touch ground under water You wont be able to pick it up, to solve this just push it on watter stream so it will float little above or push of platform so it will start falling again.

Actually, these 2 x Disk 1's that I checked already had the correctly named "ENDBLOCKS" file

...so really only needed to update these in the grand scheme of things:

a) Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 2 of 3).adf
b) Pinkie (1994)(Millennium)(Disk 3 of 3).adf

Tested with the [t +16 Backlash] Disk 1 and using [HLP] to skip planets:

... Finishing the game on a "Disk 1" planet so the end sequence loads from this disk.
... Finishing the game on a "Disk 2" planet so the end sequence loads from this disk.
... Finishing the game on a "Disk 3" planet so the end sequence loads from this disk.





Both disks in The Zone!

Again, many thanks to mai for discovering the solution

Cheers for reporting in the first place

...bit shite that the original Disk 2 & 3 have this issue; and subsequently all copies / cracks. Clearly the developers didn't test until completion
