Summary0006398: I/O error while using options SavePath=RAM: NoWriteCache and WHDload v18.7+
DescriptionWHDLoad versions 18.7 and above give problems on the game Ambermoon while using SavePath=RAM: NoWriteCache options.

Tested with slave versions v2.0 and v2.3 with same results, so I am placing this as a WHDload v18.7 v18.8 v18.9 v19.0.6626 issue.
Steps To ReproduceSave to RAM: while using both options: SavePath=RAM: NoWriteCache

Click left mouse button to skip intro screens, select "START NEW QUEST", click "OK" on the character creation screen and "YES".

This will result in I/O Error from the game itself (included screenshot)
Additional InformationWorks with combined options: SavePath=DH1: NoWriteCache
I save to RAM: because I use save states in FS-UAE and this is the way to make them portable/reliable by including any saved game data.
TagsNo tags attached.

Just forgot to mention, the options works fine with older WHDload v18.6 and v18.5

I work around this for now without using NoWriteCache

I can't reproduce your problem.
Which Ambermoon version do you use? Maybe you can email or upload it to me?
Between 18.6 and 18.7 were a lot of changes.
Can you check which build breaks?
I uploaded intermediate builds here: https://whdload.de/whdload/whd167.lha

The one I have was downloaded from whdownload which includes slave v2.0 and a patch too.. I replaced the slave to 2.3 but problem is on both.. also tried with WinUAE v3.30 (old version) and FS-UAE 3.2.11

Confirmed it works with WHDload 19.0.6739
Will be updating all my configurations next weekend with this version and see how it works with other games too.

Thanks Wepl for all your work and on resolving this!
