Added variant WHDLoad, v1.01, De
Added variant WHDLoad, v1.3
Variant moved to the other one, and this game entry is disabled as "Duplicate".
@geeky_herman Sports driving variants moved to the correct game. Thank you
@abuehler I double-checked, WHDLoad, v1.3 slave is in the database and appears for me...
@levellord Had to reject these screens as well due to low quality (scaling and/or compresion artifcats).
@levellord I had to reject the screenshots :-/ Looks like they were (or have been) JPEGs or something. They contained noise. Screenshots must and be rescaled and/or have compression artifacts.
@levellord i can confirm the crash with a1200 model. requested a change to a600 model.
WHDLoad will freeze as soon as Accolade logo show on screen. I tried with A600 and it was working just fine. Thanks!
HI! I edited screen #5, but also uploaded unedited one as well. Please delete one or the other. Thanks!
@abuehler: technically its like this. whenever whdload website adds an updated slave for title x, i just copy & paste the There is a new WHDload variant available. to the variant notice of the variant. this way frode will notice there is a newer slave around while approving the vaiant_notice and can import the new slave once he have time .
Indeed free time is a luxury and I fully understand this therefore a big thank you for the time spent to keep things up2date.
@Frode: unfortunately not... the update is still not visible as of today. D/Generation has been updated but not Gobliiins.
@thevoice: you mentioned variant notice for changed slaves. How does this work? I couldn't figure this out yet for the case that I stumble upon updates.
Newest WHD is v1.3 and FS-UAE mentioned it in the status bar but this variant is not yet listed
I usually check for new WHDLoad installs during the weekend and mark updated ones via the variant notice to give Frode a hint there is changed slaves. sometimes it takes a bit until the appear (free time is a luxury ). But i personally think having a message for a few days is better then lagging behind with actual slaves for months or even longer xD.
Added variant WHDLoad, v2.2, 0677.
Added variant WHDLoad, v2.2, AGA, 0457.
Added variant WHDLoad, v1.3, 0065. @abuehler Yes, it seems that @thevoice have been quicker to mark the old slaves as oudated, than I have been in adding the new ones :p -But the new ones should be available now!
Added variant WHDLoad, v2.0-B, 2036.
Added WHDLoad v1.1 slave.
Added WHDLoad NTSC variant.
It seems that @thevoice did an update on particular WHD sets of Gobliiins, D/Generation & more. Now Launcher is stating that a newer version of the WHD game exits (which is true) but in the selection drop down the new version is not listed. Maybe something has been entered wrong regarding the new WHD package/versions.
@abuehler Oops, you are correct, thanks
Changed parent_uuid of this version to parent_uuid
1c18c2de-bad3-5eb4-9518-87b7a2af8d08 c24e64b0-d97c-5a04-83d3-28f324ff0d1c because this is the OCS version of Fly Harder and not Fly Fighter... therefore this one was assigned to the wrong game
the game is ecs/aga only. tho no benefit from aga. so amiga model need to be a600.
increased chipmem to 1024kb to cover the additional drives.. else loading will fail with returncode 20 after the cracktro.
this variant does not like slowmem. with slowmem the game just gurus before the mindscape logo.
Trivia: This Game was programmed by the main cracker of the original Quartex.
The author states that this game is (now) public domain:
Croak! was never placed in the public domain. Amiga Format solicited for coverdisk submissions and paid me a token amount for the right to publish it, but that’s as far as it went. So now I officially declare Croak! to be in the public domain and all you people who copied it can finally sleep at night! — http://hyperwares.com/2009/05/croak-the-amphibian-migration-simulation-for-the-amiga/
Yea, I agree, no worries. Regarding custom covers, I am glad you like them and the game entries looks more colourfull, not just sad, gray rectangle instead.
@levellord I rejected the IBM PC back cover edit to look like an Amiga cover. Even though OpenRetro.org is not an encyclopedia, I think it's best that people don't (easily) mistake covers for authentic. So, I think it would actually be better that the cover simply said IBM PC in this case. I don't feel that all game entries need a back cover, so if an authentic back cover cannot be found, it can safely be left out.
While speaking about covers, thank you very much for your effort in creating custom covers for game entries with missing front covers
Imported TOSEC variants.
Imported TOSEC variants.
Imported TOSEC variants.
Added Amiga cover.
this variant supports loading from df0: only. tosec have a floppy variants which is fixed to use more then 1 drive.
increased chip mem to 1024kb. with just 512kb the game hangs with a black screen right before the copy protection.
@sjuk Hi, and thanks for helping out
You added the change to the WHDLoad variant? Was that intentional? (I assume the WHDLoad entry saves to the HD?).
@thevoice Yes, the Launcher is actually a bit "clever" about this. If more than 8 MB fast RAM is added, the Launcher automatically selects a full 32-bit CPU (e.g. 68020 instead of the default 68ec020) and uses Zorro III fast RAM.
I changed fast memory to 64 MB to make it a power of two
@HungryHorace Yes, done
Added floppy_drive_count = 2 because game looks for save disk in df1.
is it acceptable to change the game name to: Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis [The Action Game] in the same way as Last Crusade?
This would make the accuracy of searching for one specific 'Fate of Atlantis' easier when handled by automation / scrapers?
The game requires a lot of fastmem for preload. - 1.8 MB ChipMem and 3 MB OtherMem (+34 MB OtherMem for preload option) as the whdload readme says. i have set fastmem to 40960kb idk if this is correct as i couldnt find a z3_fastmem entry on the web frontend. anyway with just 8mb fastmem the animation sequences stutter hardcore.
whoever thought to charge money for this game back in time needs to get shot
the disk is kick 2.0 formatted so we need kick 2.x moel else echo command fails.
Thanks Frode, that make sense.
@levellord If the variant is not found on your system, the most likely explanation is one of:
The launcher looks for disks by checking the contents on the file (calculating the checksum). For this variant, a disk with the following SHA-1 checksum is needed:
HI! Just want to report that variant
Space Harrier II (1990)(Grandslam)[cr CLS - Zelnik][t +4 CLS - Zelnik] is not scraping at all. Thanks!
@der.judge Sorry for the delay, publish status approved!
@frode this on can be disabled i think as the game requires the snes mouse.
@frode i think this one can be disabled as it depends on the snes mouse.
with enabled slowmem the game gurus just after start to load from disk 2.
the game supports loading only from df0:
set the amiga model to a1200. with just 68000 cpu the game is so slow its next to unplayable.
@mothra DAT importer script fixed, new multi-CD variants imported
@frode out of curiosity i did a clean reinstalll with the bobo.lha from whdload.de and sps1951. the resulting disk.1 image is checksum different then the one from the installed version over at eab fileserver.
@thevoice It could be that the slave itself was not recompiled/updated, and only the installer script for installing data files was changed (the WHDLoad page mentions a script update).
TOSEC variants imported
@frode this whdload is indeed a bit "strange. loading it up cleaarly mentions v1.0 in the whdload splash made in january 2002 while the readme already mentions a v1.0b slave made in february 2002 .
TODO: WHDLoad 1.0b version? http://www.whdload.de/games/Bobo.html
@SiO2y @mothra Variants are available now, game entry is published
@mothra Humans 3 was marked as unpublished earlier because there were no variant for it then. There is a redump variant now, and I've just marked the game as published
@mothra The importer got confused about how TOSEC/Redump catalog multi-CD games. So basically, each CD got their own variant. You can see that on the edit section for this game. I've disabled those invalid variants, and will either tweak the importer, or manually create proper two-disc variants for the (few) games where this is an issue!
(I put a TODO-comment here earlier so I wouldn't forget)
the game supports loading only from df0:
WHDload variants asking for at least 020 cpu.
Trivia Pursuit CDTV:
There is still no TOSEC Variant anymore.
Database Bug or on purpose?
Redump: CD32 per forum link! Redump: CDTV....No, only if Redump.org is online again, there are server troubles at the moment.
Tosec...are everywhere to find
If have 100.000 Roms and Images for any kind of system, i know where to find them. FSUAE is the best thing for Amiga out there, i was waiting for such a front-end/Emulator .... many years! No to sound rude but...
Humans 3 & Heroquest II CD32 are still missing EXISTING REDUMP Variants (I HAVE) in the FSUAE Database! I only want to point that out!
Both gunforce are the very same titles just no intro named them different.
not to sound rude or something. but tosec and redump is by far the easiest to obtain collections on the web.
Trivial Pursuit CDTV: TOSEC Variant is gone!
... la la la MISSING CD32 in FSUAE: - Humans 3 - Evolution - Lost in Time. (Europe) = Redump Version, there is no TOSEC! - HeroQuest II - Legacy of Sorasil (Europe) (En,Fr,De) = Redump Version, there is no TOSEC!
@Arnie Added [Special Edition '92] to game name
@frode ah, ok if i stumble over another title like this i put it into description instead .
The game does not have a title screen.
@thevoice I moved the "game notice" to description instead. I prefer not to put stuff in game/variant/notice/warning/error unless there is something users wanting to start the game should see.
@Mrvaya Does the WHDLoad variant need 4 MB chip memory? It does not like it, so I'm rejecting the change. If the change did something useful, please add it again and leave a comment here about why
@tempet02 Thank for contributing. Unfortunately, I had to reject the screenshot because it was scaled. The screens must be "pixel perfect" (i.e. not be stretched). Please see https://openretro.org/screenshots for more information.
Redump Versions (No-Intro Naming, Cue & Bin & per Audio Track .bin) Files are ALL "god thanks" still for EVERYONE avaliable/findable! Through a forum link from 2015.
Now everything is okay!
Auto-Select I know, but at least 2 different Versions per game is better to have. The Problem with Xenon is none of the 3 Variants were supported (SHA, CRC) and i still don't find the right one (Trurip Version)
Yes!!!! Thank you very much!
@mothra Warlock the Avenger is published now
@mothra Thunder Boy is published now
@mothra The Launcher (and Arcade) should only auto-select the highest-rated variant that you have. If not please file a bug report!
Also, if the database games setting is not changed from the default, the Launcher/Arcade will only show you games where you have at least one variant!
set slowmwm to 0 else the ackerlight cracktro wont show up and booting stops.
set floppy drives to 1. with 2 enabled drives the game guru right where it would ask for disk 2.
the vision factory cracktro does not like slowmwm. with enabled slowmem it crashes after exiting the cracktro.
the game have 2 different views sideways and vertical, thats why the screens have different width
This game is safe to be disabled. it requires a "pedal" hardware to simulate real biking while playing the game
No, i was very angry! Trying 3 variants of different formats for Xenon 2 CDTV for example ...non worked.
To answer your question: Cause the implementation happend AFTER the official Project Sites are down or other sites like 'UG' are gone, were the images 100% were. 2014 no problem!
There are other peoples also which start FSUAE with no files at all.
There are no obvious "borders" / edges as such on these screens, it's more like a surrounding border area. I think it'll look best to leave it as they are
the screens are unedited. im not entirely sure how to crop them properly.any ideas ?
Changed WHDLoad Amiga model to A600 due to comment about timing bug in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5VNsisdSJNI.
Good question. maybe dropping the overview screen is best. Don't think showing that mode is essential...
screen2 credits go to the ministry of truth
@mothra Of course they'll stay And when/if the TOSEC set is updated with new CDs, I'll add those as well.
I don't see the problem with having added the Redump variants to the database. Regardless of you having them or not, the variants can be useful to other people.
The Redump variants DO NOT replace other variants or prevent other variants from being added, so I don't really see how it is negative for you that information about them exist in the database!
WHDLoad, v1.2, 1327
changed model to a1200 because with a600 model the slave complains about some resload error via a requester.
Hopefully the TOSEC Variants stay! The TOSEC Versions are no Problem to get for everyone! I have completed them!
But: It's a difference between TOSEC, TRURIP and REDUMP. This are different Projects!
Now searching for hours for Images on the well known FTP and Search Engines...
REdump Official Site: Not Found
The requested URL /discs/system/cd32/dumper/haynor666/ was not found on this server.
This are the NEW Images/Variants we get now...?! AFTER the official Side and downloads are dead.
I'm sorry I'm a litte angry...
I do NOT expect download hints, but the variants should be reachable for everybody easy. (without for example: Torrent Tracker with registrations and Usenet Accounts/ alt.bin you know).
@mothra @thevoice What has happened is that the older TOSEC CUE+ISO variants have been replaced with new TOSEC ISO variants with cue sheet added to the variant itself (so the .cue file is not needed, the user must only have the .iso).
So you just tried this game at a "bad time", before the new variant had been connected to this game entry
(The old TOSEC CD variants has been marked as disabled and will no longer show up in the Launcher, etc)
I'm currently updating my CD32 Tosec collection!
And meanwhile, before completing them ... the currently working variants are on the "vacation"!
I started from Z to A... :O)
The 2nd entry for the redump variant should have the info that the version is the one with world cup teams.
game is AGA so it should have a model with aga chipset
