oracle_jedi: I appreciate your effort, but I'm afraid that it was little too much, and will confuse anime4ever (if he will come back here at all) .
Yes, there are many possibilities. What is sure is that this is not refresh rate error - so why talking about it here ?
It was obvious that it is without hard drive - from floppies - although I guess that would be much better to accent it in text, and not in videos
And worse, he said "almost every game I tried ...:" yet, you asking how many games he tried ....
Then, since I was mentioned with "cracked by ParanoidLittleMan" - seriously ? All you see in some hard disk adaptation (or may call it even patch) is crack ?
FYI - in most of cases (99%) copy protection is easy part, often takes only 5-10 minutes to remove it. And I need to remove it better than when it should run from floppies. Because there are many cracks which just change compare function somewhere, but do not deactivate whole code what accessing floppy to check WP. I need to completely remove all floppy access. And that may need + time.
The reason why I don't care for 60 Hz is that people not asked me for it. Only in very rare cases. Someone mailed me that Potsworth & Co. freezes at start, and he gave short description of his system, so was clear that it is 60 Hz. And I was able to test it in emulator in 1 minute. That game version just works not at 60 Hz. So, only way is to run at 50 Hz. - and I added switch to 50 Hz at very start. Stupid UK coders ! In many cases it works at 60 Hz too, but not so good - too fast music for instance, graphic errors ..
STE with 512KB RAM - that's was rare then, now is like winning on lottery - considering chances This games work with 512KB RAM.
