Give more search hits (e.g. 1000) because default is only 30.

I myself in the past contributed to alexh project with some fixes for the Eng texts causing crashes in some locations...



I know also a person who started Ambermoon -> Ita but never completed the project and I've lost contacts in the meanwhile...

So there are some "unofficial patches" for additional fixes as far as I can read here...?

This is one of the BEST RPG EVER IMHO, even today!
And at that time was really impressive (huge, technically good with Doom-like sections etc., nice gfx, gameplay, beautiful music).

P.S.
No need of WHDLoad version. It always worked fine from WB in my case (real A1200+B1260, or now WinUAE AGA 060 + Picasso emu). On real HW AGA A1200 it just required to switch to Low-Res mouse pointer, but for the rest it worked fine and WB was stable after it...

Eh, do not seem to have that option in my FTP client.

I put Ambermoon in the search box <enter> and get this message.......
Do you want to search in / recursively?
Press enter and get nothing.

I was unaware that I could do this and have just always used an FTP client, sorry to cause your frustration.

I have what I require, thank you

Your name is next to every fix you found and tested. Your help all those years ago very much appreciated.

There was also a French translation but that too was never finished.

All known patches I have documented, and cross-referenced to conversations here and on other forums plus emails between you, I and Metallic (guy who created the tools to patch the files). I'll make a page on the Thalion Webshrine live next week with full technical details of all bugs I know about. Including the diff files and all the tools. I've been sitting on all this for too long (in fear that there would be lots and lots of different versions floating around).

I don't know what is and what isn't in the Meynaf patch. I suspect most things are in.

For sure You can enter everywhere in Luminor Tower (and join Valdyn to party) and read all glass ball messages in Gala Temple. Also i didn't find any other bug during gameplay to finish. But i cannot say that there are no bugs at all. Meynaf should say more because i'm just user of his patch.

Full list of bugs and how to fix them is quite badly needed. It's about time we can build a unified fixed version containing everything.

I loved it, too, but even back in the day the lack of scrolling in the 2D sections sucked...

Thank you for your project alexh and your kind words...
Definitely. We got to merge all these fixes for a "definitive edition" patch.

@Washac

Game was playable to end even in old version (not patched), but You must ommit some places/actions, e.g. mentioned before in my post (in Luminor Tower and Gala Temple) and some other.

You must rename the files. It can't be played directly from CD...
