Diamond Caves II - Registered Version
 
Heya guys,

I've grabbed "Diamond Caves II" and all extra levels of Aminet.

It's the unregistered version though:

Doesn't anyone know where to a code to turn the game into the registered version from?

...don't worry, found a registration code and it works ;)

The freeware code is on the Aminet readme:

Thanks. Cool that the game lives on via STEAM.

Ok, so have now imported all 34 extra levels.

There were 3 duplicates that I skipped obviously i.e:
... "DC2-EM-BobbyLv.lha" is the same as "DC2Lvl-Bobby.lha"; kept the second official one.
... "DC2-EM-C64Lvl.lha" is the same as "DC2Lvl-C64.lha"; kept the second official one.
... "DC2-EM-GhostLv.lha" is the same as "DC2Lvl-Ghost.lha"; kept the second official one.
I've now completed the following:
  • Registered the game with code.
  • Set "Player 1 = Joystick 2" and "Player 2 = Joystick 1".
  • Added a new player named "Player".
  • Added in the "Classic" levels by "Peter Elzner" after the original "Tutorial Levels" and "Advanced Levels".
  • Renamed the "EmeraldMine2" set (DC2-EmerMine2.lha) to "EmeraldMine"; as there is another "EmeraldMine2" set (DC2Lvl-EMine2.lha).
  • Renamed the "ExpertMine1" set (DC2Lvl-Expert.lha) to "ExpertMine".
  • Renamed the "POI-PerOneMine" set (DC2PerOneMine1.lha) to "PerOneMine".
  • Renamed the "XmasMine" set (DC2Lvl-Xmas.lha) to "XmasMine1".
  • Added in the all extra levels in a nice order:

  • Deleted any highscore entries from level sets.
"DiamondCavesIIREG&ExtraLevels.lha" is now in The Zone! for any one that wants it ;)

Thank Damien :)

I've updated the registration code to be the "Amiga User" one.

Replaced .LHA file in The Zone!

Bah, I made one last change...

I've hacked Peter Elzner's "Classic" set to be named "Classic Levels"; just like "Tutorial Levels" and "Advanced Levels":

I can't be bothered to re-create the .LHA archive though; as this takes 1 and a half hours to archive up...

So, if you want this final change:
  • Extract the "DiamondCavesIIREG&ExtraLevels.lha" to your hard drive.
  • Extract the "DiamondCavesII_di.lha" (now in The Zone!) to your "DiamondCavesII/data/l" folder.
