Summary0005334: Original Megaball executable has tooltypes to map mod. music paths to various
DescriptionGameVersion: english,ntsc,3 disks
SlaveVersion: 1.0 from 20.05.2000

Original Megaball executable has tooltypes to map mod. music paths to various tooltype variables. How can this be done with the slave?
Turning music on/off during play with keyboard shortcut "m" is not working. Music is always off during play. I'm thinking this is because the tooltypes options are not enabled when Megaball is starting and so reason why no music is available.
When started with slave, Megaball notifies that 4/5 songs have been preloaded and so also showing that all songs are not getting loaded.

Thank you for reporting this problem, the tooltypes parsing required icon.library which is not included with the game. I have updated the patch and added tooltype parsing without icon.library which was an interesting coding exercise.

Text in v1.03 OCS slaves is messed up.
I copied diskfont.library from Workbench 1.3, as you can see in the two attached screenshots, it looks quite funky.

It's strange... OCS slave 1.03 version tested on my both Amiga A500ACA500Plus and my A1200 and text is seems to be ok.

I downloaded both games (OCS & AGA) from WHDOwnload and just replace with the latest Slave version.
Best Regards,

For AGA version maybe put a restriction about the chip into the AGA slave because it seems to start on my A500ACA500plus but a message error come.

Exception "Illegal Instruction" ($E010)
at$9F7994 (TRask Exec.library , Expmen $3D994) occured.

For myself Restriction = Do not start the AGA game without ACA Chip

Best regards,

Yes, please disregard my "bug report".
I just realised I didn't test it in cycle-exact mode in UAE, that's what made OCS version look off.
All's well.
