That patch applies to RocknRoll (c) 1989 Rainbow Arts, both original and
You will have to install it with that install to run it from hd.
That install needs WHDLoad and RawDIC in the path (eg in c:).
Fixed: Stackframe error.
Several dbf-delays replaced.
Crash after completion of the game (hopefully) fixed (Not tested
already, completing the game with the shortest way takes at
least 2.5 h and 2 times testplaying is enough to me).
Default quitkey is numerical *. You may change it in the icon with QUITKEY= .
Notes: Try COUNTRY or MAGIC MAP instead of your name, or the levelchoice
with RAINBOW ARTS . Magic number for levelchoice is aaxxbbbbxxcc.
Hereby is aa the level you want and cc the level backwards, and
sum of bbbb gives the levelnumber. Example: 25XX6667XX52.
Do not edit the highscorefile, or the game wont work anymore.
Additional note: There is one defective charge of that rerelease. I managed
to restore the defective data and included it (encrypted) in the
imager. If you have that charge too (it crashes in level 7 or 8) you
need to install your very original disk and not a backup, or the
defective track (#5) cant be recognized and will not be restored.
The install is tested with 2 MB on an A1200, and on an 18 MB 68030.
Since my installs are freeware, and although i try to make them as reliable
as possible, you use them wholly on your own risk.

Version 2.0 (24.02.2013) by Wepl
- new system friendly RawDIC imager
- extra imager included which is able to extract your highscores from
disk, even from a cracked disk because scores are saved on cylinder
80 in a non standard format in original and cracked releases;
just run "rawdic RocknRoll_HS.ISlave" and copy the created file 'rrhigh'
to the installed game data directory
- blitwaits in the intro added
- intro can be skipped via Custom1 tooltype
- highscores are divided by 10 to avoid overflow at 1000000 which is
easiley reached in a normal play through (via jumping back you can
get even higher scores, although I doubt that somebody will do because
of the time needed to)
- leading zeros in the highscore table removed
- title scrolling fixed
- button control on map display fixed
- disk loader optimized to require less resload calls (2 disk version)
- source and docs included
- new icons
