Star Trek Judgment Rites Amiga port

Wikipedia says:

Quote:
Star Trek: Judgment Rites uses the same MS-DOS gaming engine as the earlier Star Trek: 25th Anniversary
Since we have Star Trek 25 Anniversary I was wondering if that engine could be used to run Judgment Rites, which wasn't released on the Amiga, on AGA Amigas? Anyone?

To me it seems that Judgment Rites is much better than 25th Anniversary. The engine is the same, but as game more complex.
Amiga version is very slow and many animations and graphics are cut from dos version, so JR could be much worse.

But is it the same engine? For example, for Monkey Island 2 and Indy IV the executable is 100% identical. Only data files are different. If this is the case with Judgment Rites as well, then it could easily be run on A1200!

@mc68060 : did you try to copy the JR PC's data to the Amiga 25th An. folder ?
(OK, may not be so simple, but did you gave it a try just to see if the game try to load ?)

I had a go at this as I have both ST games on CD for the pc and I can confirm that unsurprisingly this doesn't work! File sizes are different between 25th Anniversary on PC and Amiga so not the same data files and JR has loads more files. Also, there are all the voice samples so sadly this simple switch was never going to work.

Will need someone to go a bit deep I think...
