Running "In the Dead of Night" from HDD

Has anyone managed to run this game from a HDD?
I'm trying with FS-UAE. The introduction plays, the title shows, then the screen stays black when the language selection menu should appear.

Things I tried:
- Copy the 3 disks into a directory in my WB installation, ASSIGN the names of the disks to said directory (in my startup-sequence), copy a library and a font in the relevant locations in my WB installation.
- Make a new bootable hardfile, copy the 3 disks to it, copy the ASSIGN command to the C directory and add the 3 ASSIGNs to the startup-sequence (so as to boot to the same environment as the disk does).

The game works fine from the disks, even with the drives set to turbo speed.

Maybe it need an ENV Assign also? Try adding these:

Code:
Assign ENV: RAM: 
Assign T: RAM:

I tried 2.05 and 3.1, AGA and ECS. It only works from disk. I'll do more tests and report back. Thanks!

I've also been trying to run it from my hard disk, with no success. Can you please reupload the HD version?
