Summary0004903: Original game bug probably: when you ESC and quit the game to return to main
DescriptionGameVersion: english,pal
SlaveVersion: 2.1 (10.12.17)

Original game bug probably: when you ESC and quit the game to return to main menu joystick settings get reset to default.
Repro steps:
1. set Joystick 2 buttons
2. play the game
3. quit the game with ESC key
BTW, this game has some timing issues on fast emulated Amiga through WinUAE 4.4.0+ (060 AGA+RTG...): background parallax or sprites flickering. Have to degrade emulator like this to make it work fine:
ExecuteStartup=
  ExecutePostDisk=uae-configuration cachesize 0 finegrain_cpu_speed 0 cpu_speed real cpu_throttle -850
  Cache
TagsNo tags attached.

Not sure if a bug or a design decision (code does set options to defaults intentionally) but it isn't very convenient. For this reason I have just improved the option handling, joy type (normal/advanced, one/two button) and difficulty are restored to the settings which have been set before when returning to the main menu after playing a game.

The graphics bugs on fast machines have been fixed as well.

Updated patch will be available on the WHDLoad site in a few days.
