ECS games not working on A500...

Haudi Amigists!

Here's a short list of non-AGA games not working on configuration A500 + 1MB + KICKSTART1.3. I have tested them on two Amigas after trasfering adf-flies via PC. I have checked all the versions of these games from tosec. If someone disagrees my list then let me know! If possible it would be great to get a working version even on one game from this list!

HERE GOES:

Alfred Chicken [crashes after first level has loaded]
Alien Breed Tower Assault [only one version works randomly]
Arcade Pool [won't load]
Beneath A Steel Sky [crashes after intro]
Black Sect [won't load]
F1 [crashes after crack screen]
F1 World Championship Edition [crashes after crack screen]
Master Axe [requires more memory]
Max Rally [requires more memory]
Mega Typhoon [crashes after crack screen]
Pinball Prelude [crashes in the beginning where developer logo is seen]
Primal Rage [crashes in the middle of developer logos]
Quik the Thunder Rabbit [crashes after crack screen]
Rally Championships [requires A500+]
Rice of the Robots [Requires A500+]
Space Assault [crashes after crack screen]
Turbo Trax (Arcane) [won't load - demo version loads to menu then crashes]
Wheelspin [crashes after crack screen]
Whizz [crashes after crack screen]

Well actually my machines are:

Motorola MC68000 (16/32-bit), 7.15909 MHz (checked from the net), with er... OCS-chips??

No wonder all those games listed above don't work as I mentioned them as "ECS"-games but I think that my list contains some titles that SHOULD work even on my machine...

some will be ecs only, some may require 1mb chip, others might need kickstart2+ and finally some could be badly cracked etc

Mostly pointless list without CRC32s.. Most games have multiple different "versions". (cracks, trainers, damaged tracks, etc..)

Second Toni's opinion.

I remember having Alfred Chicken working with ADFs. (but never tried them after CAPS/SPS again and finally WHDLoad)

In fact the other cracked version (can't remember which one) of WORMS from TOSEC works fine one my machine!

It's hard to say what are the errors cause the games usually stop loading in the blue Amiga-Dos screen.

What comes to Alfred Chicken it worked for sometimes ago but something awful has happened and it doesen't work anymore! I know this game has some memory problems on some versions but the Flashtro version worked for a while... Weird.

GREAT NEWS:

I listed those games not working on my machine (A500 with 512+512 & KS1.3). Well one of those (I forgot this one from my list) is now working! The name of the game is 'Ruffian'. Hell-Fire cracked those TOSEC games badly because the one without any crack intro works fine! This game is quite good so now I would like to know if any one have one of those listed games (my first mail of this thread) and different versions of them (non-TOSEC).

Especially I would appreciate if someone have a game ADF without a crack intro (maybe even a non-cracked game if possible). You'll never know if some other good game would work and end up to my THE ULTIMATE AMIGA (R) FLOPPY GAMES COLLECTION

And these games will certainly need more memory or newer KickStart than I have so these can be ignored:

Master Axe
Max Rally
Rally Championships
Rice of the Robots
Whizz

Haven't heard of Rice of the Robots, is it like Rise of the Robots at all?
