Elite Advanced v1.2 has been released
2 Attachment(s)
Hi, community,

I took the time to apply some long promised changes to Elite Advanced. Please have a look at the CARE page for more informations.
The Whdload slave will be released soon.

Have fun.

- NEW: statistics page implemented (options)
- NEW: trainer implemented (options)
- NEW: colours of stars changed
- NEW: delay for galatic hyperjump changed from 30 to 10 seconds
- NEW: the library (options) is now "built-in"
- NEW: WHDLoad slave available
- FIX: bug of original version fixed: stars in right/left view have moved up/down the wrong way
- FIX: "ADV" logo in main menu is smaller now (e.g. problems in galactic chart)

Superb work, I just downloaded it and made an adf of it and was about to upload it to the zone...

somebody already done it! :D

Again nice work, I don't really play Elite much but it's great to see a project like this continue and produce such professional (and fully working/stable) results.

Cheers man.

I'll give it a better test once that whdload slave comes my way :)

where can I get it please? Or how can I enter The Zone?

killergorilla 08 September 2005 16:53

Easy, you just need to join the 'Access - The Zone!' group.

To join:

1) Click on 'User CP' (top left of screen)

2) Click on 'Group Memberships' (bottom left under Miscellaneous)

3) Then Click 'Join Group'

Hope that helps!

how easy... THANKS!


What is the legal status of the game? Could I redistribute it in freeware project without any need of permission or something, don't you know?

AmiGer 08 September 2005 18:11

Please read the FAQ on my page.
Only the CARE patch files are for free. Not the whole adf/ipf with the original game.

glwxxx 08 September 2005 18:19

OK, thanks!

Good work AmiGer! I remember talking about this last January in 2004. The stats make it refreshing especially if you pick up the same game after a long break.

Marcuz 11 September 2005 02:08

good work! an we expect something like that for Frontier or it would be something less interesting as double of Elite?

Is there a way to use the on a disk saved commander with the
whdload-version? I can't find a file on the savedisk.
Thanks, Daniel

DNA 13 September 2005 22:22

Found a way ... perhaps.
It is stored in track 2, sector 0..10 for the first saved commander. I dumped all the sectors into single files with TrackEd an reassembled them with "Join" into "EliteAdvancedSave" . Unfortunatelly Elite hangs after loading this file. Filesize looks good, 5632 (512x11) Bytes, content looks good. Any Ideas?

Thanks, Daniel

AmiGer 14 September 2005 08:52

You're just one step away from the solution:
in the original Elite the last 244 bytes (before the last byte=checksum) of each saved game are xor-ed by a descending value $F3, $F2, ... I disabled this and the checksum check in the slave. I think that's why your system hangs up.
I will post a workaround for this the next days.

Could someone please upload to The Zone! the latest .ADF version of Elite Advanced + Save Disk? ;)

DamienD 07 January 2016 16:01

Nobody? :sad

...the CARE website doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Retro-Nerd 07 January 2016 16:13

It's in the Zone now. I hope it's the correct disk image. :)

Dunny 07 January 2016 18:20

Why was the galactic hyperdrive dropped from 30 to 10 secs? There was a good reason for that!

Not likely to get an answer though after all this time!


DamienD 07 January 2016 19:26

Retro to the rescue again :great

Anyone have the custom save disk that apparently required?

Here's one I made in WinUAE. The Commanders name is Johnson.

You can change it by leaving the save disk in DF0: and saving a new commander.

Thanks Arnie; is it just a standard .ADF?
