I've tried all the versions of the Swos HD installers I have found on Aminet.
None of them seems to work, I have the original v1.1 disks.
My screen turns black to; and after a while it tries to load from DF0:
if it fails to do so, the led starts blinking, and I have to reset.
If I insert disk1 into df0: after the screen blanks, it starts loading,
and the game starts without asking for disk2, so it looks like part of the
game is loaded from the HD.
In my case this should not be a memory problem, I have 2 + 8 MB RAM in my
Maybe all these installers I've tried are written for pirated versions only, cause
I know that there is a copy protection on disk1 ( one block that is longer/shorter
than amigados normally can handle,,, or something ) ????
I dont think it's my 040 thats causing the trouble, cause the game works like it
should form floppy ( although slower on the 040 than on the A500 ), and I've
tried to run Dtack, cache off, original chipset,,,, all combinations.
