StingRay (developer)

Can't reproduce this at all, does it also happen with the attached slave?

note ~0005318

hamakei (reporter)

Can confirm that the attached slave works perfectly as a drag-and-drop replacement for the packaged slave from http://www.whdload.de/demos/PygmyProjects_Extension.html

StingRay (developer)

Thanks for testing! Can you try the attached slave again, does it still work?

note ~0005322

hamakei (reporter)

The slave uploaded on 2016-09-02 does not work, and gives the same error - "Exception "Illegal Instruction" ($10) at $A occured"

note ~0005323

StingRay (developer)

Ok, so something is pretty strange, next test slave on Sunday.

note ~0005324

StingRay (developer)

New slave attached, please test and report if the problem still exists or not, thanks.

2016-09-04 slave does not work - crashes with the same error - "Exception "Illegal Instruction" ($10) at $A occured"

note ~0005326

StingRay (developer)

Attached a new slave, still crashing?

note ~0005327

hamakei (reporter)

Okay, that's very strange. The first time I ran it, it crashed with the usual error. The 2nd time, it ran fine. The 3rd, 4th and 5th times, it crashed with the usual error. The 6th time it ran fine. The 7th time it crashed.

There's something very strange going on here - in between the launches, I didn't change anything - didn't restart, didn't open or close any other programs, didn't open or close any windows....

This is the register dump produced by WHDLoad if it's any use:

http://pastebin.com/cBLCbHc9

I can supply .whdl_dump and .whdl_expmem if you require them

note ~0005329

StingRay (developer)

Thanks for the register dump, I think I found the reason for the crash, replayer enables level 6 interrupt without initialising it, if a level 6 interrupt occurs before the replayer finally uses one for the first time, demo will crash.

I have attached a new slave for you to test, does it work now?

note ~0005330

hamakei (reporter)

Hmm. Different problem this time, I'm afraid. When running the 2016-09-05 slave, the intro image appears, but then the screen goes blank and the Amiga locks up. The WHDLoad quitkey doesn't do anything, and a reset is required...

note ~0005331

StingRay (developer)

Attached a new slave, still the same problem?

note ~0005332

hamakei (reporter)

The 2016-09-05 09:12 slave appears to work fine - the demo started and ran correctly 7 times in a row.... thank you!

note ~0005333

StingRay (developer)

Excellent! :) Thanks for testing and the fast feedback, will create new install package now.

note ~0005334

StingRay (developer)

New install package available on the WHDLoad site now.
