Oh, I loved this game on the C64! I'll have a go.

I had to use the tooltypes NOAUTOVEC and NOVBRMOVE with WHDLoad on my A1200/030, or the game would randomly crash on the first level.

Are we using the auto-fire option (A key)? So far it seems no different to holding the button down.

You're allowed to if you want.

Thanks for the tooltype-tipps!

Decided to start using KGC on scoreboard as ties in with my forum name.
I am getting some bad slowdown on areas of the second level.

It was very difficult to get exactly same score twice! ;)

Saint Dragon 1.4 ADF
===============

I managed to squeeze the 1.4 WHDLoad version onto an ADF. Real Amiga users can use transadf to put this on to a real floppy disk and play it. Hopefully we all now get to play the bug fixed version. :)

n.b. Requires 2mb 020 ks2.04+ to run.

Download here.

There's a lot more subtely to the tail than I first realised. It can pop enemies and absorb quite a few bullets if you curl up just right.

Stage 3 is super fun but I hardly get to practice it as I still haven't got stage 2 down. :p

This game doesn't seem to make any use of the Amiga's qualities. Poor music and sound fx, low framerate and only 16 colors. But it still works due to the well drawn graphics, well chosen color palette (almost on Bitmap Brothers level) and fine playability. Good fun.

Welcome to the competition arcanist! Nice to have players from all continents.

Yeah, it could have been a better port. The arcade version (below) is a thing of beauty. I think it still works because the gameplay fits the Amiga/C64/... so well. Add a tail that follows you around and turn on collision detection. It was such a simple idea it sparked Dragon Breed as well. I remember young me really enjoying those two games.

Glad to be on board! Any excuse to heat up the Amiga chipset is a good one.

That's a whole different level. Way more colors, transparency effects and stable 60 fps. The difference between the Arcade and Amiga-versions looks like between SNES and NES-games.

Slight improvement:

To be honest, if this was a 16 colour Tiertex conversion, the graphics would be half their size, very blocky and chunky and would lose 95% of their detail, like a NES game. The background would be solid back, like an 8-bit game, as they couldnt even get the background into R-Type 1 on the Amiga. This conversion feels like a SNES conversion - but still far from the arcade original. Considering Ninja Gaiden 2 on the Amiga, I'd say this conversion isnt bad.

The scrolling is because it was timed to the track-loader of the disk image, as it used spare CPU cycles to load new graphics. But this is not as smooth as SWIV which did the same thing. The new 1.4 version loads from memory, but the FPS still judders when that game was supposed to be loading stuff, and is hard coded this way.

Interesting, thanks for the infos Dan.

The last level is easy, it is short and we harvest a lot of lives but I lost them against the boss ...

john4p 11 May 2018 11:11

Damn that means you can focus solely on Paradroid now. ;)
