But I've just made a quick test. With the Ghosts'n Goblins STX, it
actually crashes at startup with a double Bus Error. So I'm glad I
didn't introduce it in this first Hatari overview.
STX format may need more accurate FDC. Nicolas?
yes, image of copy protected games (like STX or IPF) are most likely to
require accurate fdc timings, because some of the protections are based
on measuring the time it takes to read a sector (and the original sector
was written with specific HW to ensure is reads slower or faster than if
you copy the disk using the ST's FDC)
So, if a tutorial is about playing games using Hatari, then I think it's
better to not show the "faster fdc option" as sooner or later it will
cause some games to crash.
