Second try - why all these gurus?

Second try - why all these gurus?

Post by Ronald Park » Thu, 23 Jan 1992 05:13:34

Well, I haven't seen a reply to my first question, so I'll ask again in a
more specific manner:
Why can't I load Psygnosis games on my machine?  I have five of them, and not
a single one will load.  This is not a problem with the games themselves, as
they all load fine on other machines, but on my machine they bomb with guru
numbers 3 and 4.  Lemmings, for example, always bombs with guru 4:00000000
right after the "Psygnosis presents" screen.  I have removed all expansion of
any kind from my machine, and it still doesn't work.  I have a A500, Rev 5
motherboard, 1.2 ROM (KS 33.180, WB 34.28, though of course the WB doesn't
matter to Psygnosis stuff) and standard Fat Agnus.  I have tried reseating
all of the chips to no avail.  In the past, I have replaced both CIA chips,
the Paula chip, and the 75188 line driver chip.  What could be causing these
guru messages?  Do I have to replace Gary?  Should I just upgrade to the 1M
Agnus?  Please help.

I'm only a student.  That's why I'm allowed to say these things.  Staff can't.

1. Harpoon with OS 2.04 (Second Try!)

I bought Harpoon back in the dark ages of OS 1.3, and now that I've
installed OS 2.04 and the new roms, it's broken.  The specific symptom
is failure to update menu items (sensor range selections, etc.) while
the menu is displayed (although the updated do take effect), and
failure to display some information.  The cumulative effect is to make
the game unplayable.  I am running the game from a hard drive on an
Amiga 2000HD, but I still have the original floppy.  Am I making some
simple mistake, or do I need to shell out some bucks for an upgrade?

would be fine, unless you think there is general net.interest in this.
