Emerald Mines II (Bouldersdash II) by Kingsoft

I recently brought out the A1200 from the garage for the kids and was showing them my favorite games at which time we came across the good old EM/BD II by Kingsoft.

The problem I am having is that the game itself is not saving the number of games I have played nor does it save the level I played last. No matter what I do, the games played and levels are always the same the next time I restart the game.

Does anyone know what/why this could be? The disk is not write protected either.


Cheers

There's a couple of programs on the disk, make empty disk and make game disk. Are these anything to do with saving games?

BTW I can't get this to run in WinUAE at all.

So if I make a game disk.... which files do I keep? It seems somewhat odd to have to do this when the game worked in the past without any problem. And yes, the problem I have is with saving games.

I haven't tried to use it in WinUAE but don't see why it shouldn't work..... Have you tried booting from the ADF image using different ROMs & varying configurations? ROMs 1.2 or 1.3 may be the best I guess although I have always played EM in my 1200 so ROM 3.0 or 3.1 should also work fine.

I have the Kingsoft compilation CD of most of the EM levels ever created, but it's in PAL format. It ran fine on my Amiga 4000 with a boot floppy. (The 4000 can be switched to PAL or NTSC during startup.)

It will NOT run on the Amiga Forever 2012 emulator. This was a CD-32 disk. If anyone in the UK wants it, I'd be glad to mail it, no charge. It aint doing me any good. Should run fine on any Amiga in PAL.

Is the disk an original or a copy? If a copy, and it's not cracked, the game won't play correctly.

Also, what is the disk volume name? If it's been copied using Workbench, the volume name might be "Copy of [whatever]", in which case try renaming it to remove Copy of.

You could upload an image of your disk to The Zone and I could take a look to see what the problem is.
