Having spent a couple of minutes over the moon at finding Exile gas been
posted to this newsgroup, I was brought back down to Earth with a sickening
crunch when it refused to work on my RPC600. Having patched the emulator,
when I run !Exile, I just get a blank screen, followed by a lot of fishing
around the back of the machine for the reset button.

I've not been having a very good week, and this is just pure cruelty.

Please, please, please can someone tell me what the problem is? Am I going
to have to finally get round to sending for !GameOn?

Decode the following file, and run it (it's a BASIC program) before
MakeExile to make 65Host run on the RiscPC, and therefore, Exile.

No, it does work. Anyone who wants a working patched version of the game -
give me an email. Now if only someone could fix the emulator so that the break
key works...

Have you patched your copy of the *emulator* to work with the Risc PC yet?
If not, see the FAQ for the patch...

Cheers, Julian.
