I have experienced the same problem when playing Subwar2050 CD32 WHD version
on a real Amiga 4000 (060).
When launching the game, there is message: "Save blocks available: 0" or something like that; even if I have plenty of free storage space available.
It's very annoying to play the game without save option;
you must re-complete all the training missions etc.
I personally prefer this CD32 version of Subwar to the Aga one;
because of the cool animations and the option to use real Cd32 pad controller.
I really wish this issue could be solved.

Ok, tested with the modified slave;
now there seems to be (!?) enough Save blocks available
( = about 10000 ??!) and the modified game Options
are saved succesfully.
However, creating (=naming) a new pilot doesn't seem to be saved.
Should it be saved only after succesfully completing a mission..?!?
