AmigaOne X5000 platform specific issues.

Spencer 1.0 and audio

Postby ssolie » Sat Oct 06, 2018 2:06 am

I just installed Spencer on my X5000 and it guru'd on first try. No happiness. I sent a bug report to the authors.

Then I took a chance and tried installing an audio card.

After the audio card was installed then Spencer worked without issue.

Great little game by the way. Easily worth the moola.

You don't have a sound card installed in your X5000 as a standard?

So u could say that having a Soundcard is a Spencer 1.0 requirement :-)
AmigaOne X5000 -> 2GHz / 16GB RAM / Radeon R7 250 / M-Audio 5.1 -> AmigaOS 4.1 FE
Amiga 1200 -> Recapped / 68ec020 ACA 1221ec / RetroNET connected to the world

Having the VOID driver (equivalent of >NIL: for AHI basically) available would probably be a good idea for systems with no usable sound card installed. Unfortunately it is not included with the OS yet IIRC.

Yeppers. Not a big issue for most I'm sure.

Anyway, the bug has been fixed since I posted and I assume and updated Spencer will be made available to all.
