Summary0004219: Eye Of The Beholder 1, 2 AGA fix?
DescriptionEOB 1,2 AGA WHDLoads are incomplete since CFou interrupted support…

There are these known issues yet to be fixed:
(from http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=1270950&postcount=32 )

"cfou kindly uploaded the sources etc. of EOB1,2 AGA in The Zone… or you can download sources here:

https://1drv.ms/u/s!ApMUGr0cuN39gbwLw81WLMQV6L9hbg?e=lIKAuh
 
Is someone interested in finishing the work fixing the few bugs in the WHDLoad installer and the game?

Currently confirmed known bugs:
- EOB1,2 AGA crash Exiting the game from Settings menu in-game after you opened at least once the new auto-map (won't crash using WHDLoad quitkey though)
- EOB1 AGA crashes after end-sequence beating the game if you open automap first

Possible extra features to be added:
- WASDQE as alternative movement keys
- RMB on compass to open/close automap (acting like TAB)"
Additional InformationWondered if someone among currently still active WHD developers could be interested… It's an amazing work by CFou that only need a pair of fixes in the slaves in some circumstances.

Would be also great if someone wanted to add the afore mentioned improvements:
- WASDQE as alternative movement keys
- RMB on compass to open/close automap (acting like TAB)"

Hi,

Currently confirmed known bugs:
- EOB1,2 AGA crash Exiting the game from Settings menu in-game after you opened at least once the new auto-map (won't crash using WHDLoad quitkey though)
- EOB1 AGA crashes after end-sequence beating the game if you open automap first

In both case it must be a bug in allocMem/freemen code.
No enought time to fix it.

But i'll planned to clean 'a bit' source code before to release it.

In the meanwhile I'll look for a savegame at the end of EOB 1 AGA to test the crash...

Here a savegame -attached- before Xanathar (The End): just 1 hit left to kill it! It's useful for testing BUG 2 (EOB1 AGA crashes after end-sequence beating the game if you open automap first).

CFOU (developer)

Thanks.

Is not full source codes (never released), just whdload's slave src code.

When i'll free time (perhaps soon), i will try to clean-up src code of EOB1&2 AGA perhaps fix known bugs, optimize automap codes (badly coded because in first it was used just for debug) and release full src code.

Regards,

Small gfx corruption after you close auto-map in EOB1:

BUG 3:
both games have some issue with keyboard shortcuts: C opens Camp menu, then R to Rest etc. and upper left keyboard key "\" (or ' son some keyboards) (0x00) if kept pressed seem to casue input freezes where only mouse movement is allowed and no LMB or RMB do work anymore after you play a bit with keyboard in Camp menu... Possibly keyboard interrupt issue?

News?

I see now beta slave 0.3 won't crash anymore on "Quit the Game" from Options menu after you opened at least once automap (TAB).
It now resets the WHDLoad sandbox restarting from beginning (intro etc.) if you already opened the map (TAB), or will cleanly quit to WB if you didn't open the map before.

Details about previously reported bugs
======================================
BUG3 (7132): it seems to happen with EOB I AGA only, when pressing numpad numbers (e.g. 8=up...).

EOB I AGA gfx corruption (7131): confirmed it happens only after you open the automap at least once. Immediately after Loading game there is no corruption.

I also just noticed is still possible to switch front screen with AmigaOS combination LAMIGA+N or M. It should be removed (confusing!).

"Extra features" idea would still be a great addition... ;)
a) modern WASDQE as alternative movement keys (CUSTOMx ttype?). NOTE: the remap, in case, should be disabled when opening Camp menu or some keys will act as numpad up/down instead of shortcuts for submenus (R=Restore party, S=Memorize spells, etc.).
b) RMB on compass to open/close automap (just like TAB key)
