Gave the 1.1 a try, so far so good (ok, just the intro and the 1st room, I'm in the corridor :mrgreen: )

EDIT: episode 1 finished, all went fine! But of course, I played faster than the 1st time, and didn't try every action on every situation.

Hello,
Currently playing Blake 7th on my Atmos + Cumulus
Image

Well, atually, trying to play... I started to play on PC + Euphoric then I decided continue with the real thing.
Unfortunately, the disc is write protected, and I do not know, how to unprotect it with the Cumulus... Shame on me :oops:
By the way, I'm not very proud either of being stuck in episode one, being unable to find a way out of the city :D
That said, this is a great game that pushes far, far beyond the limits of our beloved orics !

Many many thanks to you Chema !

Patience, Dom. And if you need any help, just drop me a pm :)

About the protection thing... I am not sure what you mean. The dsk seems to be unprotected for cumulus, as it does not show the P at one side (that status is changed using one of the buttons at the right, I think the on in the middle). So either the SD card is protected, which can't be or you wouldn't be able to copy the image file, or the file itself is protected.

If it is the latter, use your OS to unprotect it, in Windows, that means right click and unmake read only if it is marked.

Dom, l'article du mag d'avril 2014 reprend le mode d'emploi du cumulus.

@ Didier: Thank you Didier, third button on the bottom right ... and the P disappears :)

@ Chema: thanks Chema, it seems that all the directories of the SD card were read-only. I modified this under windows.
As I did both I do not know what actually blocked automatic backup. But it does'nt matter, the fact is that now it works!
Regarding my exit from the city ... I'm going to send you a MP for a strong help :)

I finish episode one, thanks to Chema's help.
Episodes two and three seemed easier to me, and I could finish the game without additional help :) .

Playing this Wonderful game has been a fantastic oric experience !
Thanks again Chema !

Thanks Dom! And congratulations for finishing the game !

@jede...that is a beta version you are showing. It does not display the version number and 'loading game data' message, and somewhat the continue from saved game is not working...

Could you try the final 1.1 version?

I replayed version 1.1 directly from the episode 1 beginning until the end of episode three with the same or even more pleasure.
No bug to report.
I will also play a third time, in order to write down, for posterity, all the actions that must be done, when and where they must be done to win. Thus, Blake 7 will join my "little encyclopedia" of Oric adventure games solutions. :D
