Summary0005307: Bugs in slave 3.0 (01.05.21)
DescriptionList of bugs for slave 3.0 (01.05.21) I can reproduce (yes, I know this game is a mess ;)):
1. with Cheats enabled after you press 2 times N to skip to first spider boss, the game will crash to WB, if you are playing with SFX (see in-game Options)
2. intro: left/right border issues. Looks like some pixels from left and right should be covered (let's say -20px left, -10px right) to hide some glitches: left boder has a ugly empty black bar where starfield scrolling ends prematurely, and on the right there is a glitch with starfield flitckering stars. I can hide right boder glitch using WinUAE Filter: Auto Integer Scaling but left "bar" where starfields ends prematurely will stay. Original game bugs I guess thgouh....
3. when using cheat keys if you press 0 for the most powerful weapon, than you can't press the other keys 1-9 anymore (= won't change weapon)
4. on my faaaast 060 WinUAE emulation the new option to fix background flickering does not work: still flickering even degrading cpu cycles or in cycle_exact mode music gets toos slow...But I found after MANY trial&errors a solution degrading emu with: "uae-configuration cachesize 0 cpu_memory_cycle_exact true blitter_cycle_exact true cycle_exact memory win32.cpu_idle 105 cpu_throttle -300". Might be WinUAE-related though...

Could you also increase delay from 5 secs to 8? ;)

Another issue of 3.0 slave: start a new game, quit the game with ESC. Now press Quitkey at main menu: it won't work. Will work only in-game.

Options: SFX/Music. If you select SFX, start a new game, then go back to Main menu and Options, audio will be reset to Music mode. The other options are ok and persistent.

Function 'resload_Decrunch' has failed to decrunch data.

This is a crash dump when you reach lev 3 (1st spider boss) with Sound: FX option enabled. To be exact I use: Normal + sound FX + advanced joystick + 2 button joystick options. Hope it can be useful.

Is also reachable in game directly by pressing 'P' (Pause) and then typing slowly MATTRESSISAMONSTER (original cheat mode), then in-game you can press '3' for the 1st boss level where the game will crash back to WB , when you're playing with sfx only.
