Using WHDLoad in an emulated A1200 setup!
Seems there is another version from the Super Heroes compilation that uses another form of copy protection (that's not Copylock) that needs supporting, nearly 22 years later :)
This one uses an IBM style longtrack on 79.0 / 79.1 (not sure if 79.1 is actually part of the protection check) and DIC will fail when reading Track 79 and abort the install!
In the bootblock is this text: This is only the Beta Test version of thisprotection you know, you're not that good. SMH '91SoftLock v0.9
Unfortunately my dump has a bad track 67.0 but there is an official IPF of this exact same dump: IPF #3093 which isn't bad but shows track 79.1 as a normal ADOS track, so can this version be supported please?
TagsNo tags attached.

Looks to be a very simple modification to make this version work so I'll have it finished soon.

My dump, although from the same compilation as IPF #3093, is different! Mine has a mastering error on track 67.0 and 79.1 is not ADOS like IPF #3093 as my dump shows it as a 9 sector MFM longtrack!

email me if you want this dump!

Yes please, send to my Gmail account. The IPF appears to be broken, as skipping levels crashes level 4 on the original running from disk. It would be good to compare with your version thanks!
