I received a few reports that Stupid Invaders, both EU and USA region versions, doesn’t work on GDEMU. It took a whole evening but I figured out what hangs it. I still have no idea why though. The “solution” for now would be to break an otherwise functional piece of code, which is simply unacceptable – so the actual issue must be something else. Perhaps it’s another timing problem, maybe GDEMU is returning data too fast and that confuses the game. It is Ubisoft title after all…
I’m going to investigate further, if I can’t find a proper solution soon I can always do that dirty fix. It shouldn’t affect other games, it’s not exactly a core functionality that needs to be changed.
In other news: Seems like US Postal Service gave me the middle finger – they no longer track my shipments. It might be a system glitch as they don’t show tracking for the codes that worked earlier, but the result is the same nonetheless – it’s broken, has been for days now, and doesn’t look like it’s going to be fixed soon.
On the bright side Australian post decided to stop being the odd one and now they do track international registered mail it seems. Or maybe it’s some sort of baton that got passed to USA now. Well done, except you could’ve picked somewhat less frequent shipping target maybe?
