Post subject:  eidolon and koronis rift, and ATR's from workbooks question

Hi

I can't seem to get The Eidolon or Koronis Rift to run on a real 800XL (pal, 8mbit atarimax flash carts). Though I have at least got the Eidolon running in atari800winplus when previewed from the studio it crashes on load on the XL.

Are there known good ATR's or xexs for these games please, I'm sure Ive seen then in another workbook.. I have abvious inking these are originally multi disk thoigh ive tried every version and single disk version i can find.

Hopefully this is an obvious issue?

Second question, hopefully also often asked is if I find a working game in another .mcw, rather then just modify that workbook, substituting my other games into that one etc, how can I extract/save select ATR's etc from that workbook?


thank you!

Iain

ps example .mcw attached.

Both titles use their own replacement SIO routine and so the redirection done by the standard Flash-Kit doesn't cater for this. Secondly, both load data during the game and Koronis Rift can even save position to disk.

There are specific 1Mbit cart images available over on AtariAge:

(use the images on the last two posts for Koronis Rift)

The attached ATR does contain a version of the Eidolon, presumably with the extra data written into extended memory and then loaded in as required.

I have an ATR of The Eidolon that works with my 800XL.
It does not require additional memory as in a 130XE or upgraded 800XL.
I have never got it to work with MyIDE.
But I have been able to make a disk of it and load and play it through my sio2pc interface with it stored on my laptop using aspeqt or Ape on the PC.

The disk works via sio2pc due to the nature of the replacement I/O routines they use making equivalent Serial Byte requests directly on the port which are interpreted by the attached drive appropriately and sends Serial Bytes back. These are picked up by their own handle to put the bytes into a block and then transfer that to memory.

This can be check in an emulator as setting a breakpoint on the CIO or SIO O/S entry point does not cause a break.
