View Full Version : SSI Games

Here's an nice website which lists details of Amiga versions of SSI games:
Does anyone have the following Amiga versions?
Converted circa 1986. $39.95
Dungeon Masters Assistant, Vol. I: Encounters
1990 (late 1989?), $29.95
Dungeon Masters Assistant, Vol. 2: Characters & Treasures
1990 (late 1989?), $29.95
The information seems to be quite reliable, but doesn't mention this wargame:
Carrier Strike: South Pacific 1942-44
This probably doesn't exist, but does anyone have it?

Ok, Cody. You are talking to the resident war and Sim gamer here. Carrier Strike NEVER made it to the Amiga. How do I know? I know many grognards, the ones that eat, live and sleep this stuff. The kind of men who put my war gaming "devotion level" at "Super greenhorn " status.
Trust me, strike that andWestern Front of your MIA list. Please belive me on this, for I have looked far and wide, in detail, for a year regarding these 2 games.
Here is a link to the MS DOS version, from the venerable website Home of the Underdogs, which I am certain you know of.
Having played the PeeCee version for while, let me asure you, the game is vastly forgettable. Although I know its the completist in you that wants it!

Very useful site there!
Dungeon Masters Assistant Vol. I & II
OK, they are pretty hard to find, but I have seen them pop up every so often. I can't help you with the other games, but one of my friends from my Amiga group in the early 90's had originals of both and allowed me to copy them. I don't remember if they are manual look-up protected or not (I seem to recall that they were) and don't really recall whether we removed that protection or not, so you'll just have to check it out and see.
Fingers crossed that someone can dig up Computer Baseball and share it with us.

I've removed those SSI games from the MIA list now - thanks Fred.
Merci for the games Twistin'...

dumb question but:
is this Dungeon Master's Assistant stuff really a game?
Looked more than an add-on kit (also according to the name), therefore I didn't download it :scream;)
Nevertheless, don't bother if - it's OK.

I'm not big on RPG's and stuff, so it's not something that I have sat down and immersed myself in. I never cared for all of that dice rolling, character generating and party assigning. I would have to say that, no, it's not a game, but a util for RPG-types who play pencil/paper RPG's. It seems to do the dice rolling bit, generating characters and encounters, and all of that bit. For Volume II, it seems there are added features for later edition rulebooks with added extras not found in the standard set.
I still classify it under games, even if it's not really a game.
