Summary0005394: Genesia Crash after Config screen
DescriptionGame crashes after config when attempting to start game. Last screen says, "Configuration Finished, The game will now start, Please wait". Music stops and game crashes. Also tried launching directly from game start icon.
Steps To ReproduceEnter config. Select defaults. AAAAA for check. Select No for hard-drive (yes fails too). Says, testing performance, then finished, then crash trying to start game.
Additional InformationCrashes on real A2000 and WinUAE. Tried NTSC and PAL. Amazing how may games work when adding PAL tooltype.

Also, if you need someone to test. I am happy to help.

Did QuitKey work after "Configuration Finished" message? If not then run the config again with NoWriteCache option. The game crashes if the configuration doesn't save properly.

QuitKey does not work. I thought about the game being able to save the config. Where is it trying to save it? For a test, I tried answering "Yes" to the hard-disk question and I get a prompt asking me where the save game file is located. I noticed that it would not accept anything other than dh0: so I move the game files from dh3: to dh0:genesia. This did work but the game crashes anyway as soon as I proceed to the next screen. I tried the NoWriteCache option and that did not seem to make a difference.

Okay, I followed advice to quit game before "loading game" screen within config. It took me several tries but it works now. the timing is very important. There is a purple screen, followed by a black screen. This is where I quit. Too soon and it fails.
I am happy to play this game...thanks!
