Return To Genesis - on TT

I'm playing Return to Genesis on my TT (no extra hardware). Works great until I get a highscore, when I press Enter to confirm the screen turns red and I can't get anywhere after that. I wonder if anyone else had this problem? I'm using dbug version running from diskette (my harddrive doesn't work). Could it be that it crashes because I use A: and it expects C:? Can anyone else with TT try? :angel:

It should work with floppy, and problem is most likely because they did not patch properly that part of code - highscore save.
There is certainly no hardcoded C, because it should work from any partition.

I'm not 100% sure that on TT it will work from floppy (don't have TT at moment) . Highscore is not saved, but will continue normally. With Haga statesaves is possible to save scores too, of course - that's not really for floppy, needs 500 KB free space for. There are some special trainer options too.

OK I tried that version, after the black copyright screen, the disk starts to load strangely and then there is the red screen of death like in the dbug version. Tried three different diskettes and all of them crashes at the same place.

According to this thread viewtopic.php?f=53&t=19954 it's a known issue with the dbug version, hiscore saving crash and also missing explosions. The problem is in the hack not the machine then, probably crashes all machines.

Well, then it just works not from the floppy on TT. TT without hard disk is not exactly something common. Best would be that you fix/replace hard disk, or get UltraSatan.

I will try with my Ultrasatan later and see how it works :)
