@thevoice Thanks, I loaded several tables in a row and confirm that the fix seems to work.

@Nolendil i reduced fastmem to 2048kb for now to solve the issue you reported.

@thevoice Thank you.

There are a few issues left: the loading screen after selecting a table sometimes doesn't show the table panel in the middle of the screen and, when it does, the panel gets corrupted towards the end of the loading; and loading Speed Devils right after Stones'n'Bones corrupts all the graphics until you quit the game. However those are probably WHDLoad-related bugs, and might even occur on real Amigas. Indeed, these bugs also happen when using the WHDLoad version in WinUAE 4.4.0. While, on the other hand, the disk version (IPF 0025) works perfectly (tested in FS-UAE, with the default A500 config and with an A1200 with 8MB FastMem). The ReadMe of the WHDLoad installer also suggests that it is difficult to make this game work so it wouldn't be surprising if there are issues left. Anyway, not much can be done until a new version of WHDLoad fixes these problems, I guess.

EDIT: Actually, reducing the FastMem to 2 MB seems to fix the graphical corruption when switching from Stones'n'Bones to Speed Devils (both on WinUAE and on FS-UAE). Other glitches are still present but they have minor impact. It should be an improvement on the workaround to change the config to 2 MB of FastMem.

@Nolendil changed amiga model to a1200 for now as a workaround for the black screen.

Using "WHDLoad, v3.2, 0025" variant, after the intro, the ECS version of the game shows a black screen instead of the table selection.

The issue doesn't seem to occur with WinUAE 4.4.0 using a similar configuration (A600 model and 8 MB of Z2 fast mem).

As a workaround, changing the model to A1200 makes it work, although it shouldn't be necessary.

Screenshots are from the ECS version (different palette is used).

TODO: CHECK: Screenshots may be from the AGA version.

The database has been updated with configuration including information about empty directories. Also, title screenshot was changed with a less tightly cropped one.
