Summary0005169: 9Fingers hangs at startup
DescriptionHi, i installed 9fingers using the adf files from tosec, here the sha1:
567206f0e49ebd11a03ed6ce3691d01a455d5790 9 Fingers (1993-12-29)(Spaceballs)(Disk 1 of 2)[TP3#4].adf
52d914a1ccf191a453abef0712574d89c64d8f97 9 Fingers (1993-12-29)(Spaceballs)(Disk 2 of 2)[TP3#4].adf
i have an A600 with kickstart 40.63 with only a 4mb fastram expansion (the one from sukkopera).
When i start whdload, the screen goes black and it stays this way indefinitely, and F10 doesn't work, i have to reboot.
The demo works correctly when run from floppy (well, from a gotek).
I tried also with NoCache, PAL, NoAutoVec, and at last NoResInt, but to no avail.

note ~0010113

StingRay (developer)

@Wepl: please move to demos/9 Fingers.

If you don't have time to work on this issue, you can assign it to me, I'll have a look then assuming you can provide the slave source.

note ~0010114

Wepl (manager)

You may try the attached slave, don't remember why this one has never been released.
@StingRay: source attached, feel free to fix :)

note ~0010116

StingRay (developer)

Thanks for the source, I'll take care of this issue.:)

Please try the attached 9Fingers_V13.slave and report if you still get the black screen with that one. Should you receive an "unsupported version" error message from WHDLoad, please attach the disk images you're using.

For reference, following changes have been done:
- version check added
- FMODE and BPLCON3 accesses disabled
- BLTCON0 settings fixed in all line drawing routines
- chip memory requirements changed to 512k, fast memory requirements changed to 900k
- year of release corrected (1990 -> 1993) :)

note ~0010120

darkpand (reporter)

whdload took a couple of seconds more to load (because of the preload), went to a black screen and soon gave the "unsupported version/damaged disk" error.
I attached here the memory dump, i cannot attach the disk images (they are bigger than 150k), here they are:

But they are the ones from a recent tosec, you can find the sha1 in this bug report.

note ~0010121

StingRay (developer)

I've compared the disk images, that's exactly the same version I've been using to update the patch. If you get a "unsupported version" message, you either have a file system problem or did not extract the disk images correctly.

Try extracting the disk images to RAM: and start the patch then. You should not get any error message and the patch should work. If that is the case, you need to check your MaxTransfer settings!

note ~0010122

darkpand (reporter)

oops! Sorry.
I fixed my maxtransfer on the cf card and now works flawlessly. The strange thing is that i tried installing on the ramdisk and it stuttered a little, on the cf card works perfectly.
