Good!

If this game worked in older versions, etc etc

It seems this won't work until cpu and blitter timing is perfect. I don't want to do any random tweaks because they will break other programs. etc etc

Fortunately there is nice blitter trick that can be used to "trace" cpu's memory accesses without any extra hardware. Unfortunately this is ultra-boring, in theory all 40000+ instructions needs to be checked..


Well, as you pointed us many times, the only way to get perfect timings for cpu, chipsets and blitter in a sane way is using extra hw. Can you describe us what kind of hardware will be needed to achieve this result? With the appropriate financing ( https://www.paypal.com/cgi/webscr?cmd=_xclick&no_shipping=1&currency_code=EUR&business=twilen%40winuae.net&item_name=Support+WinUAE/UAE+development ) could it be a viable task? Would you need hw experts to help you?

And, yes... i'd like to help you in some way =)
