Wow cool news Raislin77it ;)

But now we need somebody who translate it. Looks promising. :great

lo! i forgot about that game... it was a tie in of a monthly (or weekly?) publication born on the hype for Lone wolf books and similia. it was that kind of publication that you see in the stores for 2 weeks then, if you want to collect it, you have to subscribe it.
the first issue landed in my house and i tryed to figure what the heck it was, there was no hint on how to play it (it was an interactive game booklet) or what the fun was supposed to be. however the illustrations were cool.
the game was sported in the tv ad, but supposedly it was a crap. i want to try it though, thanks for the finding!

It is crucial to have it translated. Otherwise it is quite unplayable for everyone who does not speak italian.

dlfrsilver 05 November 2007 19:47

The 4 disks CD32 SDK contains all the CDXL tools + ISOCD (to master on amiga
ORIGINAL cd32 or CDTV CDROMS !!!!

And most of all, all the needed details that Toni wilen needs to make a perfect emulation of CD32 drive emulation !!! Yeah !!!!

thor 05 November 2007 19:56

Nice find with the game.

CD32 SDK and Devcon disks are on the Developer CD, so that information was available already

Marcuz 05 November 2007 20:03

dlfsilver, that's very interesting, maybe toni will sort it out!

dlfrsilver 05 November 2007 20:21

i don't have the developpers CD :(

thor 05 November 2007 20:27

But Toni has, so that information is not new

Toni Wilen 05 November 2007 20:30

Repeating again: :)

There is NO PUBLIC CD32 or CDTV hardware documentation. (of course there must be "secret" internal hardware info but nobody has leaked it)

You guys might want to contact Old Games Italia.

They're an Italian translation group, they did a very professional job with my game (for free).

rkauer 05 November 2007 23:37

Incredible good site!:-D

Thanks!

Otherwise, if somebody provides me the text strings to translate I can try to give it a go.
But it must be done by somebody able to reverse engineer the game...

farenka 07 November 2007 00:11

Hi, I'm happy to read you are excited by "La Storia Ancestale". ;)

There's no need to make reverse Engineering, because I can provide the sources if someone is interested. I was the game designer and the programmer for the Amiga version. I own the sources of the MS-Dos version too.

The Amiga version was developed using AmigaE, and the PC version using Turbo Pascal.

Bye

Ahh wow! Very good news, and welcome to the board Farenka!!

dlfrsilver 07 November 2007 09:39

Well, I'm not an AmigaE programmer, but what if I directly translate the strings in the code and you try to rebuild it?

PS: How much text is there to be translated?

farenka 07 November 2007 19:16

Text is not very much, less than an A4 page.

But it's inside the code, into arrays, so the translator have to carefully modify the sources.

Really, I could do it if I'd enough time, but not at the moment.

To rebuild the sources will not be very easy too. We should find the correct version of AmigaE, and couple of parts are in ASM (probably developed using AsmOne).

I don't think it's impossibile, but we need someone with the right expertise and *A LOT OF TIME*.

Right now, I don't have time.
