Traders is a round-based game where a repeating set of phases occur. For example, the phases include building, sending rocket ships, buying, selling, and paying rent.
During the phase of sending rocket ships, there is a small chance the game will be unresponsive and freeze. For testing, I've left the game overnight to see what would happen and the game remains stuck. Because the game could be 20 rounds, the small chance adds up and it seems about half the time the game freezes and cannot be finished.
I recall this same problem occurring with my original A500 and A1200, so I guess the emulator is very accurate!
I was very excited to see the progress on the WHDload for Traders! I completed the process and the game starts normally but still has the intermittent freezing issue during the rocket ship phase.
I've used multiple save-states to capture the issue before it occurs. I've also confirmed that if I load a state that is 2-rounds prior to the crash, the crash can be avoided.
Is this a type of issue that you would be kind enough to investigate? If so, I'll be happy to provide any assistance I can along with any logs, screenshots, or captures. It does not seem to be an easy task so I understand if this is a lost cause.
