Then you didn't install the game on a real Amiga. The file name contains a space at the end and if you got a preinstalled version from somewhere and extracted it in Windows environment, the file will not be read correctly. Please extract on a real Amiga (or emulated environment) and the problem should be solved.

You can extract this file (LHA) in the data sub directory

@Pascal De Maeseneire could you please share this file again? I'm trying to run the game in retroarch but puae doesn't see the renamed sfx file.

I can tell You that it works on my real A500 ACA500Plus and my real A1200 too.

Really Strange.

Try to transfert a full installed games in RAM : and try it in RAM disk to excluse an error on Your HDD.

@Pascal De Maeseneire
In Winuae you can easily edit this file and it works. However, when I try to run it under Retroarch, the system does not see SFX with a space.
A fix is needed because the game does not work properly on systems other than real Amiga or Winuae.
The 512k version works fine.

There is NO fix needed and I will NOT "fix" anything for broken/alien file systems which can't handle Amiga files! Install in the emulated environment and there will be no problems, if you refuse to do so, you are on your own!
