Tau Ceti crashes on SD2IEC

Post by Starglider » Tue Apr 11, 2017 3:45 am

Hi, I've tried 5 different D64 and PRG variants, but each time Tau Ceti loads, it freezes after 5 seconds.

Any ideas?Image

Thanks!!



Thanks!

Odd... Unless there is some anti-cartridge/freezer code in there.

Could it be a fault in my machine? I do occasionally see some garbled text on screen in general in programs or BASIC, which seemed to be relieved by removing the joystick from its port.

That's the only thing that I think is up with my hardware.

Can anyone test on the SD2IEC?
Thanks!

@Starglider
Is it possible the software is designed to run on a PAL C64 and you have an NTSC machine ?

I do have an NTSC machine. Is there any way round the issue, like a poke or hack?
Thanks!

Can you run the software in WinVICE ?

Of course, just wanted to do it on the real machine that's all.
Thanks!

Well, when you run it in WinVICE is the emulator set to PAL or NTSC ?

Could it be that it requires an actual 1541? There was an NTSC release to USA and Canada by Thunder Mountain. Perhaps you just need that version.
