State of the Art By Spaceballs - Dos It Run?

I am trying to get the Demo State of the Art by Spaceballs to run:
 
  EXTERNAL LINK 
  Both when I use the floppy version and the WHDLoad version (1.3) it halts just after the Spaceballs logo. Nothing more. Just black screen. I can exit with f10 on WHDload but that is it.
 
  Has anybody succeeded in getting it running on a Vampire?
 
  I am running A600 Vampire 2 with core 2.11 and the latest WHDLoad.

Ok. Thank you. I am running a 3.1.4.1 install. Maybe the version on CoffinOS is tweaked in some way or the OS is just more Vampire friendly. Will try and see If I can find a difference in the installs.

I think it is more likely the core that has been improved with regards to compatibility with horribly hacky old code that doesn't know or care about fast CPUs.

Do you mean 2.12 RC2? I do not think it is GOLD just yet.

And thank you! I will update and report back.

Updating to 2.12 RC2 did the trick :-)

Now the floppy version of State of the Art works. The WHDLoad version has the same issue but that is probably a WHDLoad related issue. Will fiddle around a little more with that.

Thank you very much to the Apollo team for the core update. Looking forward to the final version.
