Rainbow Islands Update

Hi Guys

After chatting with Horace for a bit he has rekindled my asm and I have decided to add a trainer, and support for a 2nd button/cd32 to rainbow islands!

I have already discovered quite a bit, and training it will be easy, I just wanna know what you wanna see added.

I can already train lives, add all upgrades (shoes, 2,3,4 rainbows and fast rainbows) and I can collect the diamonds, and I think in the correct order too

So tell me

You don't want much then eh

If I can figure the game out properly including the mapping, enemy ai etc then I suppose it's possible.. Too ambitious right now tho :P

a quick update. I've trained lives and credits so far.

I can also force 1,2,3 or 4 rainbows as well as fast feet and rainbows. I can also change the frequency that specials are dropped. It is set to 3 by default. I can also change or force certain items to be revealed from the ground.

Also i have written a routine that forces any gem dropped to be the next gem needed. I still haven't figured out what i need to do to force the game to show the secret room. Not figured out the times yet for water. It's proving to be a bitch. Any idea's or anyone knows where the routine is please give me a shout.

When water hits you, you die..
Try tracking what routine is taking 1 life from you. Then see what calls this routine, and keep tracking back, that might help you.. ?

All bonus counters are found and mapped, and can be changed

Working on "Forcing" a bonus of users choice

I personally love this game to bits, I don't normally use any trainers to be honest (I never get very far) but I'm sure I would if there were that level of choice!

I'm certainly interested! Although more in the two-button support than anything else. More Amiga games should be re-hacked to add extra button support imo
