It's the 68k AHI build. Back in the day, this is the only way I could get the game to run on MorphOS/Pegasos, though it does mention in the thread that there's an incompatibility with the videos which might require files to be renamed.
It isn't meant for OS4, if that's what you're trying it on.
No, runs on my PowerBook 5,8 and MOS 3.15, and it was the same on my PB5,2 with older versions of MOS. Don't remember needing the AHI patched exec.
Maybe it was for older MOS versions before I got my first MOS system?
Maybe, but I think it's more likely that it was patched again at a later date. This AHI version is from 2003 - check the version on your exe.
As far as I remember, original CD I got had WarpOS and 68k versions that punched straight through to Paula (which would not
work on any version of MorphOS, on any machine), and used cdplayer.library for CDDA which barely worked even at the time. It doesn't crash on MorphOS, but doesn't play CD music either.
However there was also a mission pack cd with an updated exe as well.
Hard for me to remember. I never really played the game on MorphOS, though I had gotten it to run. It had ran on my PPC Amiga well enough, and it wasn't all that great. The low res and limited scrollfield are very old fashioned, and like Napalm and a hundred other C&C clones, it had a difficulty curve that usually gave you three easy levels and then the next nearly impossible. Bought it on GoG for next to nothing years ago, but it had aged too badly to be worth a replay - much like Knights and Merchants.
