Summary0002315: I couldn't type in a new name of savegames, it's like no keyboard accessed. And
DescriptionGameVersion: german, pal,3 disks, made from "AmigaPlus-CD Sonderheft 9"
SlaveVersion: 1.0 from 20.05.2000

I couldn't type in a new name of savegames, it's like no keyboard accessed. And on saving the screen first get blank, then flickers (savegame-screen appears and disappears), but saving is OK.
It runs all OK on direct install from CD (but then i must type in the copy-protection).

JOTD (developer)

typing something in the save window does something (loads the savegame list)
but you're right it's not possible to enter save names

These bugs are most probably protection related, the game STILL(!) hasn't been cracked correctly in the WHDLoad patch, I checked JOTD's source, there are quite a few checksum checks missed! I'll update the patch.

Keyboard problems are interrupt related (nothing to do with missed checksums as I first thought), I'm working on a fix.

note ~0002917

StingRay (developer)

Keyboard problems are fixed, entering level codes and names for the save games works fine now. Approach to crack the game also changed, any missed checksums will not matter anymore and it will also be much easier to support any other version of the game since my approach to crack the game consists of 2 small modifications. Will add my changes in JOTD's source and create updated patch in the next days.

Fixed in v1.6 of the patch.
