Battleships with speech ADF

There should be a battleship version with speech (new version cracked by access) but I can not find this ADF anywhere. Anyone has it or another cracked version of battleships with the speech option ?Looking forward to any ResponseChris

Very interesting christianlucio

Unfortunately all .ADFs in TOSEC don't contain speech...

This .IPF does though: Battleships (1990)(Encore)[budget][3003].zip

Tried copying to .ADF but it must use non-standard tracks... guess we need one of the EAB coders / crackers to make an .ADF out of this

It's using an Atari ST like disk format (10 sectors per track) similar to Hunter and Goldrunner (disk name is, funnily enough, Goldrunner). I have just adapted my Hunter imager to support Battleships and might create a standard Amiga DOS version of that very game if time allows.

crack

There is a cracktro by access for this version so they must have cracked this second version also; but it seems the crack itself is nowhere.

So none of the Axxess cracks of Battleships on the FTP server have the speech in it?

None of those have the "speech" option; do you really think I didn't test all TOSEC version available before posting (as mentioned)?

Come on Carlo, you should know me better than that...

Well, you said you checked all the ones in TOSEC....but on the FTP server there is an upload by Niobyte for an Axxess crack that has been labelled "not in TOSEC". I'm sure you know that not everything that's been upped to the FTP server has made it into TOSEC for one reason or another. Besides, it doesn't hurt to ask the OP if he checked all the Axxess cracks, does it??!!

In any case, I'm glad that mai came through for the OP!

Yes, I checked through all files currently in TOSEC; and there was a new release two days ago: TOSEC Release (2019-05-10)

"Battleships (speech).adf" hardly says "Axxess" crack does it now...

Let me get this straight, so you expect me to go through the 1000s of files on the "EAB File Server" that aren't named correctly???

So after my investigation and finding the .IPF, this was clearly useless... I'll just shut up... not sure why I bother at times...

Anyway, even after the latest findings, I'll be using the non-hacked / unchanged text .IPF

To finish it off; everyone on here has the same access to resources that I do.

...so Prof Bong; before you think it's cool to have a pop at me for trying to be helpful, shouldn't you be pointing your smartarse comments towards the OP???

Anyway... next time you want me to purchase / ship rare Amiga stuff available only to EU countries over to Australia, which I've done numerous times for free; look elsewhere and don't bother asking me

You clearly are not reading and understanding what I posted! I'll give it one more crack at explaining, though. The FTP server link I posted contained an Axxess crack that was labelled as non-TOSEC by Niobyte. Given that this may not have made it into in TOSEC, I simply asked the OP if that non-TOSEC crack or any of the other Axxess cracks on the FTP server were what he was looking for.

Given that the OP hadn't mentioned what cracks he had searched through and that you indicated that you'd only checked the TOSEC cracks (and no others), it's a fair question isn't it?

Who has had a go at you in this thread exactly??? My first post was to the OP and no-one else. I'm really at a loss as to why you're being so hostile.

The version of Battleships in the Premier Collection 3 has what I know to be RNC Hidden Sectors (like on F-29 Retaliator), this also has speech! The budget version I own, however, has no RNC!

I looked at the Encore budget, just the usual Steve Bak Atari ST MFM disk format.

Complete waste of time as the entire game single files to a 158K executable.
