Should also add that "NOCACHE" makes no difference

Patch updated to v1.3, timing fixed, wrong DDFSTOP in one version fixed, new install script

Sorry...but the new version seems to have a different bug...

It installs fine and runs...but when the fire button is pressed, the music stops, the screen switches to the title screen, and a couple of seconds later crashes to Workbench with the error:

Exception "Illegal Instruction" ($10) at $12810 occured

New error - install now completely unplayable (see note for details)

Which version did you install? I have tested the new patch with SPS 15 and SPS 2038 and did not encounter any problems.

1.3 taken from http://www.whdload.de/games/Exolon.lha uploaded today.

I do not mean the patch. I need to know which version of the game you have installed. Can you attach your disk.1 file here?

note ~0005387

hamakei (reporter)

Oh, sorry. I've tried it with a couple of different images... I think they're different but to be honest I'm not sure.

Hmm....keeps saying the file is too big to upload, but it's only 156.4k in size...

It was from this - http://www.whdownload.com/games/Pack-E-2007-01-30/Exolon_v1.2_0015.zip

I tried just swapping the slaves over, but that didn't work so I thought I should reinstall the game so I grabbed an ADF from somewhere else and installed from scratch....same error. It's possible the ADF was the same version of the game used in that install from whdownload, but I couldn't tell.

Reinstalling is not necessary, just replacing the slave is enough. What does "did not work" mean exactly?

note ~0005389

hamakei (reporter)

Hmm...using that pre-packed install and overwriting the slave with the new version 1.3 seems to work fine.

Sorry about that - must have been a glitch when I was imaging the disk or something...

note ~0005390

StingRay (developer)

I will close this then as I have just checked the patch with the image you attached and it works fine.

note ~0005391

hamakei (reporter)

Thank you so much for taking the time to modify this years old patch... I really appreciate it!

My pleasure. :)
