Ok, so you have an original Ghost Battle disk which you have dumped using Kryoflux to create a CT raw file?

You load this file into WinUAE using the SoftPres plugin (which supports CT raw files) and the game works?

You converted the CT raw file somehow into an IPF? (I am not familiar with the tools that can do this) but the IPF file doesn't work? You are speculating that some copy protection has been lost in the process?

What did you use as a source to the extended ADF of Ghost Battle back in 2008?

I have an original game disk of GhostBattle. I can create an wwp-image if it is still required.
The WHDLoad-Install already works but the highscore routine has a bug. As soon as you save the highscore you can‘t restart the game. You have to delete the highscore-file first. Would be nice if this can be fixed. Haven’t checked if this bug is already mentioned in Mantis.

There is a v1.3 fix in mantis from May last year which hasn't been released yet for some unknown reason

Please dump your disk with kryoflux free, and PM me the CTraw file please.

This is what i don't understand. I made the extended ADF from supposedly an original disk dump. the extended ADF works.

Now that i have the original disk in hand, the CTraw file works, and onced passed in IPF, the game crash and reset.

Knowing the thalion game, it's tied to the copy protection they used (ex: Enchanted lands or Leavin' Teramis).

It's possibly a GAP key protection....

Thank you. I tried it out on real hardware and it fixes the problem.
@dlfrsilver: Can create an image on real hardware only. My KryoFlux is no longer working.

Oops, I forgot about that one.
I added it to "Games - Beta & Unreleased" on the file server now.

NuJack, i need a CTraw file of your original.

Can you use the kryoflux free tool for Amiga on your A1200 to dump the disk ?

Thanks

Here is the link :

http://www.kryoflux.com/download/kffree_amiga_3.7.zip

I think it is effectively what was the SPS tool for dumping disks on your Amiga.

thanks, your dump is fine ! And has the same problem as my own original. The game crash.

Track 0 is protected by what seems a small weak zone...... so i have been able to make an extended ADF from an original that possibly has the protection tampered :/

Created and uploaded (to the Zone) an unofficial IPF of Ghost Battle, with copy protection intact.

In fact, as Keir explained it to me, the protection checks track 29 for an hex key at the right position. Without it, the game crash.
