Speedball 2 - crash?
« on: 20-10-2015, 16:32:53 »
Hi, thanks for putting all the hard drive-compatible games up for download.

I've been playing Speedball 2 on my 4MB STE (TOS 2.06) and it occasionally crashes at random during play. This is quite often when you are about to collect a power up from the pitch - although it happens at other points in a match too.

Has anyone else had this? And is it fixable? Thanks.

The only time I've had issues with PP's adapted games is when my STE boots up with auto folder apps or ACC's active.
So i tend to boot with a clean TOS 2.06 and then all is fine. hth + good luck : )

Thanks. I've checked and there isn't anything else running at boot apart from the main Ultrasatan driver. I've also installed a switcher for TOS 1.62/2.06 to test both and the same thing is happening: usually two or three bombs or a game freeze.

Fixed error, + solved ingame save/load to hard disk. Goal recording/replay works too.

I think I've spotted another problem. When a player gets injured, you hear the sirens and the 'injured' image is displayed but no substitute is made - the sirens go on and on and the game freezes. It happens in TOS 1.62 and TOS 2.06. Is this fixable?

Sorry, I missed it first time. Can you post somewhere snapshot of gamestate right before injury ? You need to press / on NumPad to save state, and then will have created file GS00.TOS - GSXX.TOS . May ZIP it and e-mail me - petari@8bitchip.info   .
