Heretic II , Problem!
« on: October 11, 2003, 12:23:38 PM »
ok , this is a weird one.

For old times sake i played trough heretic2 again (by hyperion) and i came to the last level and i had saved all the way troughout the game , then i got 256mb ram and i installed that in my machine (a1260/240) and now my save games wont work.

i saw this earlier on and i expected it to be that i needed the update , but this aint the problem, last time i played the game from start again, i hope i wont need to do this again.


anyway it seems when i change hw (memory , from 128 to 256 the game simply wont work anymore (save games only) .

i have tryed everything, i emailed hyperion about it sometime ago aswell (last time it happened) , but back then it wasn't really as "OH NO!" as now , so i just played it from start again.


thanx for any help!

If the old saves were stored using the previews version of Heretic 2, they won't work, iirc, as the
save game system changed a bit.
If that's not the case, it might have been memory
corruption or something, but it's unlikely. You'd
better contact Hans Jörg.

hi,
i did notice that the savegamecode doesnt seem to be fully fixed with the latest update.
a solution is often to delete the "current" savegame drawer. this will delete your current stats from the last levelchange or something.
give it a try, might help.

amigr: save games was made with LATEST update , and i am using LATEST update now , all that is changed is my memory.
(and i allready contacted hyperion about it once, and funny enough i got the same answer as you gave now , this was a while back and i wasnt sure if i had the latest upd on both old and new , so i just replayed all levels ... anyway NOW I AM SURE i use the latest version)


cojo: will try right away..., thanx for the tip!

cheers

Often an access fault or whatever...

That is pretty weird :-?

I wouldn't expect the saved game data to contain any data that depends on the memory config of your machine. Apart from having more RAM, any other changes? Drivers? Engine patches?

Why not just play the game on its native platform, the PC.  The PC version of Heretic II is a much better version then the Amiga version.  Play PC games on a PC and play Amiga games on an Amiga.     :roll:

doomy:... going for the babble trophy ?

anyway if heretic 2 is better on pc than on amiga then you really need to get your eye's checked!

on your milletary amiga 2000 it wont even run so i dont know why you even bothered to visit this thread...

also here is a clue magoo, this game doesnt even work on XP ... so hurrah!... nowait maybe there is an 180mb update you need to download, oh wait i dont even own a pc! , so how would i know if this game is on pc even? ...oh wait..wasn't RAVEN an amiga team ? ..oh yes they was... oh oh oh oh!

Heretic 2 was crap on the PC. Too much virtual memory thrashing, especially when you hit alt+tab to go back to your browser to find some decent servers to play on. *grind*...*grind* (watch the screen redraw line by line)...IE stops responding...*grind*...reload IE...*grind*...switch back to heretic II screen...*grind*...windows crashes.

Actually, it's the same for all Windows games no matter how much memory you have installed. Windows seems to stupidly allocate all memory for any running task. Wow, what fun - not.
