Atari Legends Dragon's Lair (Readysoft) intro locks up "M" models
In another thread ( viewtopic.php?f=86&t=21128
) I was complaining that Readysoft Dragon's Lair cracked by Atari Legends locked up my 1meg 520 STM computer. After double clicking the PRG file to start them game, the screen changes and music starts playing. This is the where they give info on the group responsible for the crack.
Playing the same disks on two separate 1040 STf computers everything works fine.
Yesterday I received from Best Electronics in California, a brand new 1040 STfm mother board. After putting everything together very nicely, one of the 1st things I tried was to play Dragon's Lair.....
It locks up at the intro exactly the same as the 1meg 520STM. I can only assume the reason being is the RF modulator.
Both 1040STf work 100% fine. Both M computers , 520STM and 1040STfm lockup. Also, all 4 of these ST computers are NTSC. That may possibly have something to do with it. (?)
So, anyone with a NTSC M model ST confirm this? How about someone with a PAL M ST? The files can be found at Climatics / Hang Loose ( http://www.climatics.com/downloads.php
) Sorted, Games, D, Dragons Lair.
Not that it is all that important, but I had just started collecting and playing with ST hardware when I 1st tried this and it had me scratching my head for hours, swapping chips between machines, trying to figure out if I had a bad 520 computer. (it did eventually die!
