Unofficial CD32 Release - Star Wars Trilogy CD32

Ok it may not be May the 4th, but its never too late to enjoy some Star Wars action! Now CD32 owners get the chance to play these arcade ports from the 1980's!
  • Star Wars
  • The Empire Strikes Back
  • Return of the Jedi

Intro Animation

I thought i can't just include the 3 arcade games, so as a bonus to all Star Wars fans I've included all the Star Wars related Amiga Animations and Music on the same disc, that includes classic animations Amy Vs Walker, Battle Of Hoth, Last Stand Of Hoth and both Walker Demos, 21 Animations in total spanning over 55 megs of data! As well as that lot, I've included the classic demo of Star Woids the never completed PD game!

Menu Selection Screen

As usual thanks to these guys for the WHDLoad files;

Star Wars - John Girvin / The Empire Strikes Back - Codetapper / Return of the Jedi - Bored Seal

Other credits, game controls (important info!) and cover art are included in the game download.


Download is on the eab server uploads/cd32 folder*

How about some watermarks to avoid selling your work?

We did talk about this a little while ago when someone had one of earoks packs on ebay, a few complaints and he soon removed them, i haven't personally seen any for sale on ebay since i started mine in Feb, so i don't feel there's any need to add watermark/warning screen.

Ok, well keep any eye out, if anyone starts selling mine then I'll whack a disclaimer screen on startup, until then i'll keep it annoying screen free.

While I appreciate the work done on these releases and the value they bring I must say I find the part about profiting from other people's work a bit weird given that the compilation is based on someone else's paid work.

I agree wholeheartedly that Earok's intent (as AmigaJay and others) is respectable and that he is not making money but that is nevertheless based on an enormous amount of work which belongs to other people, so the complaint sounds weird. The real fair way to bring these releases to the public would be to obtain official permission, something which I do not think should be that hard for someone with determination and a bit of courage.

In any case, keep up the good work (and hopefully, go legit!)!

Not sure why you find it weird that me and earok don't want people making money from them, as we are just doing them for fans of the CD32, yes it would be different and totally wrong if we ourselves were profiting, heck we credit everyone who's work we use in the compilations, i don't really get your bug with our disks, its no different to someone making a whdload loader and distributing it online with the game, i'm sure you haven't a bug to bear with everyone of those!

Btw i did make contact with a couple of IP owners regarding a blessing of use and they straight up said either no or they wanted money.

That's where no doubt differ on these replies, for one, its for a 23 year old piece of hardware, its not a remake for android, ios or too make a profit from, two there's not enough amiga users let alone CD32 owners to justify getting my money back on doing an 'official' release. Their decision of course, but i feel they are only cashing in on the retro gaming scene of late, had i asked 10 years ago i think they answer would have been different.

This might sound harsh, but sorry these guys made their money on the original releases, i personally find it annoying and greedy of them to ask for money this many years after, they certainly don't have any "community spirit" in that regard. And I'm sure Disney would have no problem giving me a free license for the Star Wars name to sell 10 copies! (sarc)

If people want me to stop making them i have no problem with that, its tiresome to argue the same points over regarding the rights and wrongs.

That wasn't my point at all and I took care to nention I was not talking about right or wrong.

I will take care to elaborate more precisely tonight.
