Hi,
After multi tries, i found something who will interest You...
On my ACA500Plus, generaly I use standard speed for 68000(@14MHZ).
But with ACAC500PLUS You can configure CPU Speed at 7Mhz, 14MHz, 21 MHz,28 Mhz or 42 Mhz...
The Icomp constructor ask to use ACA500PLus system @14 Mhz for more stability...
But as Psygore told me today about LionHeart games problem about graphism glitch, Speed @14 Mhz is to small with LionHeart
(I resolved lionHeart problems with ToolType NOVBRMOVE as written into readme file).
But tonight, I decided to verify CPU speed with Platoon game... and My results are :
@ 7 MHZ same issue as my initial message with crash message... both platoon games PAL & US Versions
@ 14 MHZ same issue as my initial message with crash message... both platoon games PAL & US Versions
@ 21 MHZ same issue as my initial message with crash message... both platoon games PAL & US Versions
BUT @ 28 Mhz both Platon games (PAL & US Versions) works perfectly without any crash messages ....

But as Icomp.de wrote about CPU speed:

"Speed of the 68000 CPU. This value is limited by the respective setting in the global configuration (F8, above). 14MHz (the default) is considered safe and guaranteed. 21MHz and higher speeds are considered a bonus and are therefore not part of product support."

My question is can You change something in the slave to resolve ACAC500PLUS speed problems... to play with that game @ 14 MHZ without need to use a Big Overclock speed..

Sorry if my English is not perfect but I speak French...

Many thanks for Your attention,
Best Regards,
Pascal
