DescriptionGameVersion: english,NTSC,1 disk
SlaveVersion: 1.0 from 20.05.2000

as I'm sure you know, Obliterator is a very slow running game. playing it on my amiga 1200 is awesome, but I have to play it from the original disk. playing it on the A2000 using the CACHE Setting make the game even more playable, but the keyboard stops functioning. I can't select the control panel to change weapons. the only thing I can do with the keyboard is press Ctrl+Amiga+Amiga to reset. It even locks out the quit key for the game in WHDLoad.
How you can help with this. it's one of my favorite games.

I created a new imager too. But don't understand how saving works in that game.
Can you explain me how to save and load a game?

you can save to a blank disk or to the game disk.

After starting a game, you can press the HELP Key to get into the Load/Save Menu.

Only one game can be saved per "save disk" or on the "game disk".

I see the load item after pressing Help. But where to save?
2014-07-16 23:16   
you can only save at re-charge stations or when you take one of the 4 pieces of the ship you're supposed to find to destroy the ship.

Example Here:

I have changed the savegame handling a bit to make the diskimages smaller.
Could you test if saving still works with the new Slave attached?

Saving is still working with the new slave.

It's a lot more fun with the DCACHE enabled.

thanks, have released the updated install package

Very Cool. I just tried to load in the new release, and it looks like my original disk of Obliterator is damaged now. (I probably Wore it out) I used to play this one non stop back in the day.

I guess the disk did pretty well considering that it is over 30 years old.

Let me know if you know someone that will sell me an extra copy of the game. =)

Thanks for the Fix.

does your disk make problems at the start or in the middle? not that the imager has a problem...

In the first few tracks. I tried booking the game normally on my Amiga 500 (OS1.3) And the beginning Graphics are corrupted and the game won't finish loading anymore. Like I said, I Probably just wore out my disk. =(

ok, sounds really like a weak disk.
