Unofficial CD32 Release - The Ultimate Amiga Dizzy Collection CD32
 
Two unofficial CD32 releases in one day, i know, I'm good to you guys!
I mostly put this one together over the weekend, and got the final game working today, and I'm away over the next couple of evenings so thought I'd chuck it out there this evening.

This release contains all 11 Dizzy related games that were released on the Amiga;

Fast Food
Spellbound Dizzy
Crystal Kingdom Dizzy
Fantastic Dizzy
Fantasy World Dizzy
Magicland Dizzy
Prince Of The Yolkfolk
Treasure Island Dizzy
Bubble Dizzy
Dizzy Panic
Kwiksnax

Controls have been enhanced where available, but I've left 'up' as jump because if one game really suits it its Dizzy, but other than that pause has been added to most games and a couple of games have more buttons, but all the controls for each game are in the readme file.

?You have been credited in the readme file, i'm sure those wishing to know how each game is loaded can easily open up the startup file!

Amazing stuff. I do wonder how trivial it would be to implement support for PSX adapters?

This may sound like a silly question, but is there any particular advantage to using the WHDized floppy versions of Magicland, Spellbound, Yolkfolk and Fantastic over the actual, 1-filed CD³² versions from The Big Six?

If they work under cd32load then the controls can be enhanced for the cd32 pad, though mainly i think i used them because i couldnt get them all running directly from the cd.

Sorry for the peak of need for recognition! Of course CD32Load is part of your OS now.

You might get away with adding "Dizzy The Ultimate Cartoon Adventure" I remember there was a pretty fast ZX Spectrum emulator on aminet that could run a 020.

Sadly the first game never got ported to the Amiga/ST

yeah i did think about that, though i doubt i have the skills to archive such a thing, plus I've run out of buttons on the menu system, it would have to be on one of those 'hold down red etc' on boot to load.

Plus there is of course the two NES Dizzy games that would be great if they got ported in the future that could be added also. Obviously alot of work to port those in the same way Solomans Key was.

Don't forget about the more-recently unearthed NES game Wonderland Dizzy in that case! :crazy

@AmigaJay have a button on the main menu for the "Big Six", and then use the original CD32 launcher program for those games ;)

Has anyone given thought to using the Reality Engine for a remake of Dizzy 1 etc? I'm not sure how flexible it is but I know it has a module specifically for Dizzy clones.

Yeah i did originally think that, but a couple of things why i didn't, i wanted them to be able to load them individually from the main menu, not load another menu to pick from one of the 'big 6' titles.

Secondly, Fantastic Dizzy has CD audio, without having more technical skills it played in silence, so i went with the OCS version.

Oh another thing was one or two CD32 versions of Dizzy used blue for jump, whilst it would have been ok for one title on another disc, i wanted all Dizzy games to play the same and have the original 'up' for jump.

So I'm happy with the final disc, it is what the title says 'the ultimate amiga dizzy collection' if we add spectrum and nes versions it would need renaming and a new cover...maybe a sequel disc if/when the nes games are doable.:)

:great fair enough!

Regarding CD Audio, ImgBurn is a great tool for making CUE files (just drag your ISO on to the wizard, and then the MP3/WAV files, and then you're set).

Yeah i use ImgBurn for all my discs anyway, i did originally try having the CD32 version of Fantastic Dizzy with the CD audio, but of course the data track won't be the same as the original and no audio plays at all, (i burned with the iso renamed to that of the big 6 to match the cue file) that's the part i won't be able to do.
In the future it would be cool to have multiple CD32 games that have cd audio (1 or 2 tracks) on one disc in the way the Grandslam Collection has collected them together. :spin

Hi.
While I fully welcome the conversion of the Dizzy series to CD32.
Have you credited myself as the creator of the images you have used for the menu?
They have more than a striking resemblance to http://yolkfolk.com/playdizzy/

Many Thanks

Andrew.
