Sweet! Do you need 2 drives or how is the disk swapping with one?

Nice; just had the time to finish this.

What a rollercoaster ride of bliss!!! :bowdown :bowdown :bowdown

Viceroy 02 April 2018 18:53

Excellent!

earok 03 April 2018 00:41

:great cheers

I forgot there was a second April Fools day thing.. Alpine9000 suggested there was a C64 version on the way, so I quickly faked it (just C64 palette + double wide pixels)

If you would consider "Cliffhanger クリフハンガー" :p :D :bowdown

The icing on the cake would have been a nuvie showing some fake gameplay. :D

Getting a guru w/ AGA version on A1200 030 40
Going to try OCS

Predseda 03 April 2018 08:57

A technical notice: system is not closed up / locked when the game is launched from WB. It means if you are clicking with a mouse / pressing keys in the game, you also do the same in workbench behind. This could accidentally lead to some unexpected actions in your system. The same with TimeGal.

earok 03 April 2018 09:18

@powrslave could be a chipram free issue perhaps? Have you tried no startup-sequence?

@predseda eep, that's embarrasing. It's in a system friendly mode most of the time so it can constantly load data from the file system. I'll have to see what I can do about forbidding key access outside of the game.

Predseda 03 April 2018 11:11

Maybe just open the wholescreen empty CLI before the game starts?

Can others confirm this? When watching Road Avenger AGA, the intro, to it's end; Video and sound are synced. Running the intro for the second time and the video run's fine, but not the sound. It have problem to play the sound as it was the first time.

Maybe free chip ram is not enough.
Try to launch the game booting from shell without "startup-sequence".

Heya ma693541,

I know that you're using the .HDF from my collection ;)

Just tested, watched the complete intro twice and then started the game.

Couldn't see any sound sync issues.

Galahad/FLT 04 April 2018 21:40

Not my kind of game, but I appreciate the effort put into this to make it a fairly definitive version.

Great effort :)

ma693541 04 April 2018 22:15

DamienD, maybe I have a slow laptop then. I use latest WinUAE 32-bit on a DualCore 1.2 Ghz CPU.
Looks like turning off "Cycle-exact" in the configfile did the trick or my little CPU was very busy doing other things last time I tried it. Thank you. Wish I had a heavy gaming PC now.

Sounds like it.

...I mean, my laptop was purchased in late 2011 but was top of the range back then:

a) Intel Core i5-2410M 2.3Ghz with Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz
b) NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M
c) 8GB DDR3 memory.

Whatever you do, don't try Payback [AmigaCD] then as your laptop might melt :p

A500 04 April 2018 23:56

Seeing this kind of polished, pro-level releases appearing for the Amiga in 2018 is nothing short of amazing. Absolutely fantastic!

Are we allowed to ask about your potential future releases yet?

earok 05 April 2018 00:53

Cheers guys! @Damien thanks for following up the sync issue, I didn't have a clue myself what it could have been.

@A500 broadly speaking my plan for 2018 (touch wood) is

Q1: Road Avenger
Q2: AlarCity
Q3: Raid Over Moscow
Q4: [Unannounced Project]

For 2019, a final version of Highway Sprint is on the cards, maybe a port of The Kiwi's Tale.. we'll see

Yes ;) we had the crazy idea of "What if the New Zealand Story was actually made by New Zealanders?" for the Retro Remakes 2008 competition.. the judges derided it as having an Amiga PD quality to it :spin
