Summary0003549: Clown'o'mania: Very old slave, gfx and sound problems
DescriptionThe slave for this game dates back to 1998, an update would be appreciated. :)

The SoundFx music-replayer doesn't work very well on faster systems (missing notes etc.). SFX get trashed at times. The scrolling is a bit jerky and the sprites flicker.

Thanks in advance!

You're welcome. :) I have checked and didn't encounter any problems, music and sound effects are replayed correctly, no sprite flickering either. I have, however, found one possible problem with the DMA wait routine used in the replayer and sample player, try attached slave, do the sound problems still occur on your machine?

You're right, for some reason the gfx-problems did not occur again. I guess it must've been my machine being weird or the blizzard card getting too hot. :/

I've tried your new slave: Sound seems to work perfectly fine now. No missing notes or trashed sounds. Thanks for that! :)

Excellent, thanks for testing, I'll create the updated install package then. :)
