Jeanne d'Arc [French version]

Postby Brume » Fri Nov 17, 2017 2:47 pm

I've recently learnt that 'Jeanne d'Arc' by FIL was sold with a dongle (copy-protection). It was a big surprise because I remember well this game, I got it as soon as it was released in 1988, but well... I have never been interested in the original version. I played with the hacked version, my bad :oops:

Please note the dongle only concerns the French version. The English version 'Joan of Arc' wasn't sold with this dongle and the game doesn't need it to run.
So here is my request for Steven ;)
Is it possible to support this dongle in Steem SSE? It looks like that:

Is there something I can help (I have it, just in case...)?
Let me know. Thanks in advance ;)

A short precision: disk A loads fine and the intro works very well w/o the dongle. However the game is unplayable: it requests for disk B after the intro. When the dongle isn't inserted, it crashes and goes back to the desktop.

Downloaded the game at atarimania.
It doesn't crash, it leaves properly calling PTerm() and all :)
Not sure yet but this dongle looks more annoying than the others, it seems to constantly trigger interrupts under some conditions.
Emulating this is heavier than changing some port bit.
EDIT: heavier doesn't mean harder, it means it's more a load on the emulator.

Jeanne d'Arc is a game from Chip. I have already made an STX dump, but my original didn't had the protection dongle in the box. Good point if you can open it, and take pictures of it :)

The Amiga version use exactly the same :)

Apparently WinUAE doesn't support it... but the latest Steem beta does.

Wow, you rock Steven, that was fast!

I'm just coming to test my own dumps (CTR & SCP) and the game works fine now with latest beta of Steem SSE. Really happy to retrieve this great game, haven't played with it since many years. I know what i'll do next nights ;)

Thanks again!

No problem, it's interesting in itself and it gives me something to feature in v3.9.4.
