This was always my choice as well, it's just so user-friendly, multi-tasking and smooth to use, I struggled whenever I tried to use any version of Protracker after that. Plus, it seems to fit more on...

Hm, Final Fight and Dragon Ninja (or 'Bad Dudes vs. Dragon Ninja') already exist for the Amiga, and so does Shinobi.

So they wouldn't be technically 'conversions', but more like 'improvements' or...

I distinctly remember playing 'Nemesis the Warlock' and some other C64 games on the Amiga, a long time ago. Maybe early 1990s or so.

However, I can't find that anywhere anymore for the Amiga. Did...

Come on, is this really an issue with modern Amigas? I have around 194 MB of RAM in my Amiga (chip RAM included). What do I care if a game takes 4 MB Fast RAM? Why would this matter, as long as the...

This looks pretty nice - too bad, if the project is dead. It's hard to keep a project alive after the first excitement dissipates and the hard reality of 'actually having to work hard' sets in. It's...

What do you mean by 'revised versions'?

There were many different versions of that game, even 160x200 (the C64-style resolution).

That's debatable.

I don't enjoy the MT-32 necessarily that much in Sierra games, but some people absolutely praise it.

I actually PREFER the OPL2 / OPL3 sound to MT-32, which can sound...

I disagree. I'd rather look at breathtakingly beautiful hand-pixelled graphics at 25 fps than look at ugly, rendered crapmess at 50 fps.

But maybe I am too 'artistical' that way.

It's fun to capture things from authentic sound chips, you get a bit more 'warmer' or 'alive' sound that way.
