I have an A600 with the standard 68000 cpu. I get the error "Needs 68020" when trying to run Sidewinder.
I think there is an issue in the coding as this game shouldn't require this CPU. Any time to fix this?

Might quitkey option need this.

please try attached slave, should work fine on 68000 now

a fixed install has been released today

I have tried the new install, but I am now getting a graphical glitch as shown below:


You mention something about it only working on v3 of sidewinder? Where do I get this version? I used my own original disk to install but not sure if this is v1 etc and therefore causing the wrong graphics.

note ~0001687

Wepl (manager)

Yes that is one of the unsupported versions, sorry but I have no time to analyse/fix that.
You should be able to get the working version from http://www.whdownload.com/

Vikingex - Daniel (reporter)

I have tried that also - installing the Sidewinder 1.0 from the pre-installed pack, then copying the new slave into place - that's correct way right?

That results in the intro coming up (afaik it says California on the title), but then crashing to blue screen + restarting once any key is pressed. I will now try on my real amiga, and try another sidewinder disk I have to see if that'll work.

Vikingex - Daniel (reporter)

It definitely says California on the title using the whdownload version, and has corrupt graphics when playing it on real amiga :(

Any news?

note ~0001701

Wepl (manager)

it seems I've found the reason for the gfx corruption, please try the attached slave

note ~0001704

Vikingex - Daniel (reporter)

Thanks, I tried the attached slave but I am still getting the same gfx corruption - can't take an image i'm afraid as it is on my real amiga, but it looks sortof like this


I tried other games just to make sure my Amiga isn't dying, but they work fine.

How are you testing this btw, WinUAE? What are your settings? Also, please can you zip your working Sidewinder folder, to be completely sure I can replicate the issue with your data files also.

note ~0001709

Wepl (manager)

I tested only on real Amiga.
Your screenshot looks very strange.
Maybe you have a WinUAE problem?
The images from whdownload.com are made from the sps release and should work fine.

Please test it on real hardware.

note ~0001710

Vikingex - Daniel (reporter)

Yes sorry I think you misunderstand - I have been testing on my real Amiga, and this is where the problems are. I am testing on my Amiga 600 with 1MB trapdoor expansion and 4MB card ram. I get the graphics corruption as in the screenshot above, everything has strange lines in it.

I use the image from whdownload also.

Take camera and make photo straight from your TV ;)

note ~0001712

Vikingex - Daniel (reporter)

Yeah lol I will do that tonight then :]

note ~0001713

Vikingex - Daniel (reporter)

Sorry for delay, here are the images. I also now noticed that I get a crash to workbench if I don't press a button after the title screen within like 10 seconds. Happens each time. I got two different error messages as shown below.

Also note the startup image on the game - is this the same as yours?

I do not understand why you wrote at 0002239:0001704 that you get the same gfx corruption, but the pictures are different (http://img130.imageshack.us/img130/1404/errormq.jpg against http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/9060/80771710.jpg )

was the same machine and the same game installation used?

note ~0001715

Vikingex - Daniel (reporter)

0002239:0001704 was just a random image from google, I was just trying to show you the type of corruption I am getting - I thought it looked similar to the problem I am getting.

Now though with haynors idea I took photos of my real Amiga, which I have been using all this time.

It seems you didn't understand what I mean and you didn't checked the pictures. They look very different to me.

note ~0001719

Vikingex - Daniel (reporter)

Ah ok sorry I just looked at post 1704. Yeah I have had 2 graphics problems, sorry I should have made that clear. The first is the "repeating graphics" problem which is now solved with your slave.

Then I have the problem of corruption in graphics as shown in my latest photos.
