Summary0005548: illegal instruction $10 at $c38
DescriptionAfter going through the first six levels, I get to the warp sequence. When I lose my last ship there and im quit game F10 to Amiga OS3.9 gets Exception illegal instruction $ 10 at $ c38.
Only restarting the password in the game menu (clear password) and starting a new game helps. Then you can exit the game without any error.

I am sending the file with the code to be placed in the data folder. It allows you to start the game from the above-mentioned warp sequence level.
Steps To ReproduceAdvance the first 6 levels and try exiting the game to the system in warp sequence.

One more thing. Pressing the spacebar or the second button on the controller will open the weapon selection menu. If we turn them on at least once, a graphic error will be displayed at the start of the level (large orange rectangle).
Neither of these problems exist in version 1.4 of the installer.

The crash is a bug in the game code: the game installs a level 2 interrupt when entering the tunnel sequence, once the tunnel sequence ends, the interrupt vector will not be cleared/reset, but the code it points to will be trashed. Once the quitkey is pressed, the level 2 interrupt is triggered and the illegal instruction error occurs.

Graphics glitch was caused by incorrectly setting copperlist 1 instead of copperlist 2 when applying Bplcon0 color bit fixes.

Well spotted! Both problems (crash and graphics glitch) have been fixed, updated patch will be available shortly. Thanks for very good bug report!

Updated patch is now available.

"DOS-Error #218 error (device (or volume) is not mounted)" error requester pops up.

DATA=data tool type "fixes" it.

Well, all all good things come in threes, updated version with corrected data directory path is now available. Thanks again for reporting.
