This one was requested a few days ago on EAB and since I had
nothing better to do I made the patch.
Game had a few problems on fast machines, these were mainly
24-bit and timing related. Game did not run properly on
32 bit CPU's because it used the sign bit (31) in the address
registers which of course caused an access fault.
It was also much too fast on anything else than a plain 68000
machine. I have fixed these problems of course.
I have also added an option to skip the rather boring intro, you
can skip the intro with CUSTOM1=1.
Not much more to say, game is not really playable in my opinion
but enjoy the patch anyway.
Had a look at this patch again today and added a blitter wait, this
should fix any graphics problems that might have occured on fast
While testing I noticed that the game is very dark and checked the
palette entries, turns out that all the color values in the palettes
are the original 3-bit Atari-ST values hence the game is very dark.
I have now fixed this and converted the palette values to proper 4-bit
Amiga values to the game looks OK now. If you don't like the correct
Amiga palettes you can disable the palette fix with CUSTOM2.
The game is still not playable at all but at least it's not too dark
