WormsDC Slowdowns/freeze

Cego 1200

Hi there!

I am using the latest core on my V1200 and wanted to play a few rounds of WormsDC, but the game behaves strangely.

Without "Cache" tooltype set, the game has a lot of slowdowns. Especially when there are explosions/particles involved.

With "Cache" tooltype enabled the game will freeze sooner or later and completely lock up the system.

I tried CHKINTS in the tooltypes, also deactivating Superskalar in advance, but didnt help. I am running OS3.2 without any patches, WHDLoad version 18.5.5948
Network and other stuff is disabled of course.

Can somebody test and verify this behaviour?

Thank you!

Jens Weichert

I can confirm the freezes and slowdowns. These effects also all parts of Worms include ECS and CD32 versions.
