There is funny bug in game when you just start. go to the left corner and shoot in left, bullet will stay forever
I hope that you will do slave for this game with source code and perhaps in future I will find some time to tweak the game
Hi,
If i have time, i will try to had VBL hack for winuae like SolNegro but for the moment sound are not correctly displayed on winaue (except 68000 config) while everything works fine on all my real Amiga

Love this.

Fingers crossed the rights and source code will be given over, seems this community are behind bringing a decent version of the game to the Amiga.

Just the rights would do, i could port the game in 3 months.
Nice big box, free digital download.
Lovely.

They have release shinobi in the uk/europe on the switch at long last. And as usual M2 done a cracking job. Portable shinobi, living the dream. The music just takes me bald to me being 8 or 9 and playing it in local cafe

I love Rolling Thunder and played it both on arcade and my C64.

From what I recall, I can say C64 was pretty good port, and it was pretty hard.
I never get far... but you know... you are never angry at the game (when you lost life), if the game have fair rules. So, my memory of C64 playing it, is a very fond memory.

I never played it on the Amiga, back in the day, but when I saw it on youtube few years a go.. OMG... how?! Just how?!

I think I read on some thread here where programmer discussed, like: How it's possible they have so bad framerate... even with bad port.. and all considered.. you really need to put effort to make it that slow and unresponsive...even with very beginners bad coding, it would be faster.. something like that

Wait a minute, this thread is starting to make it seem like Tiertex is still around. They're not... are they? No website...

it's actually very difficult to get a good framerate. But Tiertex sure never tried.

Just goes to show how much quality counts for when Tiertex are still around but so many companies that actually put effort into their games are not.


They were asked by publishers to pump out the ports with minimal effort and that's what they did and they have thrived because of that

Because alot of the decent small dev teams sold out and cashed in to larger publishers, i guess no-one wanted to buy them

Though tbf to them, their console ports are alot better than their Amiga ports, i guess they used different programmers, you can certainly tell the difference.

But going back to the link i posted, seems like they haven’t done anything since 2002-3 and theres only two people on their books.
