Meh... I'm not convinced theres a big difference between DD and HD disks. When DD disks were cheaper, I used to buy those and drill holes in them to save money :laughing

The music is a great rendition of the arcade tune, very faithful to the original but also adds a bit of Amiga personality to it.

I also quickly lost interest in the game after the first level.

FFPlayer as suggested above should handle those formats. As also said above, you'll need an extremely powerful "Amiga" with an RTG setup.

With a bit of luck someone may even have a dead monitor they'd be willing to give/sell to you cheaply that you could use to replace the case of yours.

A 1V Zener Diode would be another option. Would certainly be better regulated, but that's not necessary for this application.

Victoria (and Australia) didn't even exist in the 13th century. What a stupid game. Honestly, how unbelievably inaccurate it is really pisses me off.

I've just had a very quick look at the file. It's crunched so we would need to find something capable of decrunching it before we can do anything.

A competent product? Look at the framerate for gods sake. It's a direct conversion from the ST that makes no use of the Amiga hardware, and it's a pile of shit as a result.

I doubt it's the same engine. Different coders, and the engine is so much better that it would likely have required a complete rewrite.

Difficult to answer your question when we don't know what you actually use your Amiga for and whether you have any fast ram.

Is it worth upgrading to 2MB just for games? Probably not.
