Thats it, thank you Ross.

How hard would you say is a fix ? ; from a scale from 1 to 10 ? Is there a lot of rewrite that has to be done ? ( sorry, but my programmings skills are.. well; lets be honest here, rubbish, but i am curious )

Very interesting stuff, thanks for all the info´s Ross.

Even on bare A500 some rendering require a bit more than a frame but on average, with the followings, it returns to a stable 50 fps.

Thanks, Ross, for the info. Makes sense why all degrading fails.

It depends, I have a (simple) idea on how to do it.
But a simple idea may also require a complex solution, there are several variables to consider (CPU, Copper, Blitter, IRQ ..).
And for the scale of difficulty .. what is 1 for someone can be 10 for someone else

@Ross

OOOoOOhh..!! I haven't done any peeking into code in a long time. That's a sweet find!

"What is 1 for someone can be 10 for someone else." - Uh-huh, Uhhhhhh-huh! That's also where the fun is sometimes.

Hopefully, one day, the WHDLoad Gods will make it work. I am excited for that day

Has this been left behind?? I sure hope not. Ross did some great stuff! Maybe we'll get a 680x0 fix soon?

I still have hope but thinking of Second Samurai, the OCS Game.. . The last slave is 20 years old

StingRay wanted to do it, then CFOU!. Nothing, sadly . (When i remember correctly, Psygore already fixed it but never released it.)
I think both titles have been forgotten.
Second Samaurai is one of the best Amiga games imho and Batman Vuelve is just a great classic demo peace. Both are really tricky from what i have heared.

Anyhow, there is still hope, guess. Much love and thanks to all the guys who makes all this even possible in the first place.
Thank you guys

Oh, without a doubt! Much respect to them! There's always hope, I agree with that. I didn't know Psygore fixed it, but didn't release it. Maybe Psygore will see this and release it?

I meant, those 3 guys where looking into fixing second samurai ocs/ecs. Psygore´s Second Samurai OCS/ECS slave was never released. Dont remember the reason.

Sting wanted to do Batman but that has been years ago

Pardon, I misread and misunderstood your reply before.

I know it has been years now. That's why I was 'poking my head in again'.
