DescriptionGameVersion: SPS 1145, English, PAL, 1 Disk.
SlaveVersion: 1.4 from 16.08.2006

Well, it was discovered at the start of this year that Mr. Derek-Leigh Gilchrist left an obscure and hidden credits sequence inside this game with bonus tunes (eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=67246).
I suspected that neither Bored Seal or Abaddon would've been aware of this when working on the slave and, sure enough, attempting to access this screen will result in an access fault as the floppy loader for this part hadn't been patched out. Hopefully it won't be too difficult to fix this!
BTW, as another reported pointed out before it seems (mantis.whdload.de/view.php?id=2652), the attract mode wasn't tested for long enough to patch out the loader for the character pictures/cards that scroll across the screen one-by-one (after both the demo sequence and the little credit screen (not to be confused with the extended one mentioned above)). Nobody bit after the original report so it wouldn't hurt for me to mention it again. :)
Glad to be of help!

Crash in title part had nothing to do with a "loader that hasn't been patched out"! Anyway, fixed in 1.5 which also adds support for the hidden credits part.
