Noi problems either

the first fix also is vampire V4 related as far as I can remember

sometimes keyboard was lost after boot and that fix solved the issue

Thanks. Is there a way to confirm that first change is V4 specific? I see it was applied on AROS in the past and then reverted...

EDIT: Ok, I found comment in pull request - indeed only for V4 so I will remove it.

Hi,

Next ROM: https://axrt.org/development/aros-rom-20211125-2.zip

Contains two changes on top of previous:

Code: [Select]
4db0aecbc0 ("Update setchiprev.c", 2021-04-13)
d2e34179c9 ("Default AROS behavior is not AmigaOS-default and thus breaks compatibility", 2020-02-25)

Change 1) is supposed to make Deluxe Galaga AGA start on AROS (game should detect AGA correctly)
Change 2) is supposed to make "old applications requesting screen without mode id" work. The change does not say which applications it targets.
Also it has impact AROS behavious. So far if you had GFX card, it was automatically selected over Amiga Chipset. Now, the chipset mode will
be selected and you will have to select GFX mode manually in ScreenPrefs

Please validate 1) and let me know if 2) gives any real improvement.

Made some tests even if it was not easy, there are many versions 1.x and 2x of Deluxe Galaga ECS/AGA, in addition to WHDLoad versions.

In fact the last two ROMs improve and fix the graphic aspect, menus and windows are full screen, with the other ROMs they were narrow/cut, in the game there are no more graphic artifacts.

Remains the problem fire that does not work or remains enchanted,

Second should affect many Games and older Applications who expect Pal or ntsc and often got rtg

Thanks for the tests and confirmation. I have changes to joystick lined up next.

Can you describe how you test joystick? Do you connect real joysting or emulate it via keyboyard?
Can you give me names of 2-3 non-WHDLoad games that have joystick not working?

I enclose a HardFile with two games installed (last porting) for OS3, as a matter of space I have not added the audio tracks, the games work perfectly if I replace the "lowlevel.library" of the system.
 
 
I use Keyboard (I will make a test also with a USB JoyPad in the afternoon):

Blood:
- Enchanted Fire (fire button constantly pressed)
- Directional arrows, don't go back and forth

Exiting Blood Wanderer is frozen, no folders open.


Shadow Warrior:
The game can't start because the enter/fire key doesn't work in the menu, for the same keys you can't even exit the game anymore.

To me it seems sometimes fire button is constantly pressed or not recognized at all

Exhumed is not working too. I do not know what it causes. I will upload it and givr you a link, And also look if I find some games with problems.

Yes that's what happens on the game/porting Blood, I as said solved this problem by replacing the "lowlevel.library", see flooded video of Blood working on AROS One 68k.

Try it now, no need to be a Google user, I distribute all my files this way !

Now I see to find some game from Floppy that has the same problems, however it is better to test the games that I have sent you because they interest almost all the porting

I'm using your new ROMs

For me with WinUAE/AROS 68k ShadowWorrior and Blood work perfectly without JIT but are very slow (you have to wait a long time) "unplayable".

Many of these kinds of games require JIT and FPU.

There are plenty of ADF OCS/ECS/AGA games that don't work with AROS 68k, so it becomes difficult to find the ones that have keyboard/Joystik problems.

I'll try searching my archives, I haven't played a game in over 30 years :)

Thanks. If my ROMs work for you I'll just assume this this something FS-UAE related again and will use ShadowWarrior to test changes from Apollo team.
