Title: Thundercats
Post by official ninja on 06.11.11 at 17:30:42
My MSTE (USA,tos2.06) No matter what combination of 16mhz / cache I use from the launcher the game crashes with a few bombs as soon as I jump and hit the 1st "golden cup" power up in the tree.

Also, I'd like Infinite lives.  :D

Interesting, I had this working fine in STEem. I'm sure the boys will look at it. :)

Well, I just tried it on my mste (tos 2.06uk) and it worked fine. Hell I got so far I even kicked Mum-ra's arse :).

So try the usual mumbo-jumbo, like booting the game from a clean system (no hard driver installed at all - hold alt), then hard driver with clean boot (no accs/prgs).

Just for reference I use hddriver with minimum caches (set all cache fields to 999).

K, I'll try it from floopy disk with a clean boot when I get a chance.

Also, I'm not using HDDriver. I'm using the old Atari driver.

Ok. Plays from floppy with clean boot.

Crashes with hard disk driver loaded. Again when I hit the 1st pickup. Crashes with three bombs that turn into four bombs after a few seconds.

My hard disk driver is:

Atari Hard Disk Driver
AHDI V4.02

I dont think I ever used AHDI.   I mainly used ICD and HDDRiver. See if you can reduce the memory used.

Just avoid perras driver and cecil - they're both utter shit :)

Hi CJ! I'm not too worried about Thundercats working with the driver, as I found another version on the net that runs from HDD with no issue. HDDriver is $60 to register I hear.  :-[

I'm glad to help test things with my system as is anyway. After all I am using the stock driver that ships with the system.  :)

Yes, well, the stock driver has been know to be terribly buggy and restricted. While we don't force anyone to use HDDriver, we sadly aren't in a position to support anything else.

You could try ICD pro which is "free". You can even test it without installing; just do a clean boot (hold 'alt' after the memory test) and load icd from a floppy. It should detect and use your partitions, so you can test if things are better, and then you can go ahead installing it.

Awesome. Thanks, GGN. I'll give that a try.

I use ICD Pro on my MSTE, and HDDriver on the falcons. Never had any problems with ICD, it's worth a shot.

I tried ICD Pro from a floppy. Thudercats didn't load. The screen went black and nothing happened after.

However, I found that if I deactivate a few control panel CPX I never use like sound and windows color Thundercats works well with the driver i'm using.

Whats the easiest way to see how much memory is free on a STE machine?

There must be a million programs that do this. Here's one.
