|Description||Install: Oscar (Flair Software) http://whdload.de/games/Oscar.html|
GameVersion: english,pal,2 disks
SlaveVersion: 1.0 from 20.05.2000
Oscar AGA still has problems with gfx glitches in the underwater level... using OSEmu or fake kickstart in a new slave wouldn't be possible to solve all these problems? The original and the HD-install by Thomas Kessler (but doesn't quit to WB) do not show these problems... Or maybe a new slave for the HD version by Kessler (it includes password bypass) to make it more simple ;-)
Same question for Jim Power: an OSemu version wouldn't automatically fix the gfx bug in the 1st level?

Ask JOTD ;-)
This installers doesn't quit back to WB :-( but removes protection, load the game from HD with best caches even on my 060
and has no gfx bugs in the Horror-Underwater levels...

Ok, I just thought the OSemu mode emulated a clean Amiga reset but that's not the case obviously. It's very hard to fix
the technical problem behind gfx error in jim power's very 1st level?

Ok, no flashes, but it's quite slow without CACHE with 060. With CACHE it's always silky smooth and sprites and scrolling
is refreshed 1\50 sec. Much better.
>BJ the sprite wobble is normal i would say, doesnt that happen under jst?
Not at all, and not even loading Oscar from floppies... When there is the bubble-breath sound your sprite trembles

Subject: [WHDLoad] Oscar AGA and underwater flickerings
am I the only one to see a gfx bug in Oscar AGA, underwater (horror) level?
Don't move your sprite underwater and every time there's the bubble sound Oscar will flicker up&down...
Can't see this bug running it from floppy or using the installer by T.Kessler:

Bug still unsolved.
Was present on real A1200 and now on WinUAE... :(
When underwater (Horror level), when the bubbles sound occurs, your sprite will tremble up/down with a minimal gfx corruption.
|Could you test if this still happens with the updated install?|
Seems to work fine and I can't see the glitch anymore (WinUAE 4.2.3beta + WHDLoad 18.5).
Wepl, just a question about cheats and potential gameplay improvements:
Would it be possible to implement 1 hit = death for enemies (it's 3 in the original game)? And maybe add a "no respawn" (or much longer at least) option after you kill them?
This game was technically quite cool with crisp gfx and nice AGA effects (water etc.), a real pleasure to see, but gameplay has always been killed by that stupid respawn system and enemies to be hit 3 times to die... Very bad game design ideas that made it boring and uninteresting/frustrating IMHO.
JOTD made the last change to this install. Maybe him.
I have not time for that ATM.
Argh! I was wrong about the underwater bug with vertical-rattling sprite at bubble sound:
With these tootlypes under WinUAE I can't see it:
ExecutePostDisk=uae-configuration cachesize 512 immediate_blits true cpu_speed real cpu_compatible true cpu_throttle -200
But is still reproducible using these:
ExecutePostDisk=uae-configuration cachesize 0 cpu_compatible false cpu_cycle_exact true immediate_blits false
could it be a blitter error? going to check with WinUAE blitter debug option.
Apart from that: the new version of the slave implements the "1 hit kill" on enemies if some option is on. I didn't remove the respawn though. But with this option, the game is already less tedious. Good suggestion!
Unrelated: Jim Power graphical glitches are completely unrelated. And game doesn't use the OS. Stingray is having another look right now.
If possible would be great the no-respawn option too... ;)

I can confirm this glitch: when the bubble sound plays, a few horizontal pixels appear and the character "jumps".
It's a sprite data issue. The first line is probably the last line of the character or some other irrelevant data. Coupled with the sound replay routine WTF :)
The sprite glitch issue even happens on quickstart A500 with ECS version unless "cycle exact (full)" is ticked.
It's a beam/sync sprite refresh issue.
