Slow speed problem. If the ball rolls on the green after first hit, the speed slows down. Also neer the hole (put) the same slow down. Maybe this is a similar problem what I read in the install readme:

I checked again this issue. The slow speed problem is still there. Playing in slow motion makes it unplayable (no fun).

I know this is a very old issue, but I just discovered it myself and wondered if there was a chance of getting it resolved? It only seems to happen on a real Amiga, not WinUAE, I have an Amiga A1200 with Blizzard 1230, 64mb Fast RAM. I am using the Kickstart ROMs from Amiga Forever 2012. I have WHDLoad 17.1

I have done some testing and have verified that it is a WHDLoad issue, as it does not happen when running from the floppy, either installing to hard drive or booting from the disk 1.

Does setting the WHDLoad CACHE options help?

Stellan (reporter)

Thanks for your hint what solved the slowdown problem (I have to remember the possibility to enable caches in the future). Here on 040 DCache and/or Cache did the trick.

BTW. Could there general problems if both (DCache/Cache) are set? I guess it doesn`t make sense but if accidental used.

Just got round to testing this and I can confirm that adding DCache to Tool Types does indeed fix this issue!! Many thanks to all. Everything is right with the world again!!

I think this bugreport can be closed. At least DCache fixed the slowdown problem.

DCACHE indeed solves the slowdowns. But then it causes some screen garbage on the menus. Maybe it's worth investigating.

At the risk of opening up old wounds, I was trying to play this tonight on and experienced slowdowns at the same places (in the game), and came here to see if it was a known issue.

The difference for me is that I'm not using an 040+ or anything; I'm on a PAL Amiga 500 with an ACA500+ (68000 CPU running at 42MHz).

I tried CACHE, DCACHE and NOCACHE via Tooltypes, to no effect, though I didn't really expect it to work. I installed the game to hard disk using the ADFs and it works perfectly. Running via WHDLoad, though, it crawls when the ball is on the green.

Obviously I can play the game now it's installed, but it would be nice to have the WHDLoad version sorted (I like being able to start it in NTSC mode automatically, for example).
