Post A somewhat geeky trip through CyberPunks main source code file (circa 1993) in Devpac

Amiga 68000 main game source code restored and pulled from old Mutation Software server archives.

CyberPunks.zip

Uploaded for historical archive purposes.

Enjoy, if that's actually possible

caches_off at 0:14 seems to be a nice trick, is/was that a common approach?

Common trick, back when UAE wasn't as mature as today I used this trick to detect the emulator.

The "blitter_wait" macro which only consists of nops will fail on faster CPU's anyway. If the memory check didn't crash the machine already.

Can we enjoy it with the original file or do we have to stick with the video ?

You could always manually re-type it from the video

Or export the video to PNG frames, then use OCR software? (The lazy person in me has spoken).

Don't worry, I've done that exact procedure before

....and it's not about being lazy; it's being clever and making the most of technology

I think many of the text overlap's in the frames, so it would need a lot of cleaning.
So, the smartest thing to do ( ) , is to ask uploaded to make another video, with page by page scrolling...

Or perhaps ask him to read the source code out line by line (like an audio book)

That's an awesome idea!
If he reads clearly, then the software might recognize 95% of the texts.

If not, we can ask him to hire professional voice over.

LOL many comedians here it seems hehe, well calm your tits people and behold... the silly video be gone and replaced with the main source file

I say 'main' because this was lovingly and originally restored from an old Quarterback HD archive and some of the other includes and stuff are missing in action on further looking
It won't be of much actual use other than a extra bit of Amiga history for those interested to peruse perhaps.

I also somehow locked myself out of this board, which shows how much I post here I guess and couldn't respond to this thread on mobile overnight either.

Anyway there you have it at the top of this updated thread.

Peace and Amigas,

Adrian

Thank you very much for the file
I will not understand everything for sure, but will have a look at it as a part of my learning (still so much to understand )
Regarding the DropBox place, you have enough post to access the "The Zone!" and upload it there. Another solution could be to upload it on the FTP.

Thank you. I have since uploaded it to The Zone as totally forgot I could do that myself.

Cheers,

Sadly this is all I have now of this project apart from bits of the original graphics in .lbm format.

Has other material from your Amiga works survived? I'd be especially interested in Tin Toy because I think this is technically very impressive and a really fun game. Unfortunately, it came too late so it didn't get the attention it deserved It must have been an incredible load of work to get this as polished as it is...

Why not appending them in the zip file in TheZone! ?
Preservation is more than wished in our days...
