note ~0006129

Wepl (manager)

Do you have quit the game properly via the Quit-Key?
WHDLoad caches write operations and will write changes on exit.

note ~0006130

Tim Felgentreff (reporter)

That would explain it. Quit with the key does not work for me on the 68000 CPU. I have read this is a known issue with whdload on that CPU, and that it might work with a newer CPU. I'll have to upgrade my hardware to try.

note ~0006131

Wepl (manager)

You can set option NoWriteCache to force an immediate write operation.

note ~0006136

Tim Felgentreff (reporter)

Setting the NoWriteCache option causes the game to exit with an invalid write exception. I can provide a core dump, if that would be useful. The slave itself does not support a quit-key for the 68000, but using a 68010 I can quit the game using the quit key and then the write is flushed to disk and I can resume the game at the saved position correctly.

Since this is a pretty old slave, if no one has time to update it, I would appreciate if a note could be added to the page saying that it requires a 68010 or better to work.

note ~0006137

Wepl (manager)

Can you please make a dump with the invalid write exception and NoWriteCache and attach the .whdl_register file here to this issue?

note ~0006139

Tim Felgentreff (reporter)

Sorry for the delay, here is the whdl_register file. I have the whdl_dump and whdl_memory files, too, if needed.

note ~0006140

StingRay (developer)

I have updated the patch, RawDIC is now used to create the files, 68000 quitkey support has been added and a few other things have been fixed too. Updated patch can be found on the WHDLoad site.

note ~0006142

Tim Felgentreff (reporter)

Thanks, I just tried with the new patch, works like a charm now.

note ~0006143

StingRay (developer)

I'll close this ticket then. :)
