Giana Sisters, please read

It's not that I'm unable to find the Game. I even found different versions, but they all have some sort of error.
The Red Sector crack for example has a broken Level 21. One Skyline version has a level where the blocks are invisible. I still had an another Skyline version on disk, but there the flamesprites are broken.

SO ! Is a FULLY working version of Giana Sisters out there ?

BTW: I heard there is an (inofficial) sequel to Giana Sisters. What was the name ? Rock'n'Roll ? I don't think so. Ahhhh, me stupid...

Hard and Heavy freakin rocked. Not to mention the music which was another Huselbeck masterpiece.

Yes, there is a fully working version of the game out there! An image of the original disk in fact.

But you will have to wait for it to be released.

(ithat may be sooner than you think...)

I have a red sector cracked version of Giana sisters on my Amiga, that one has a corrupted level 31 though where you seem to see a lot of blocks but you can walk through them, and then there are the blocks you can walk on but not see.

I seem to recall someone posting a supposedly fully working version to the zone though.

Isn't it that the invisible blocks in that certain level (must be in the upper 20's) are invisible on purpose?


Hard 'n Heavy sucked like hell

Must me something new for the Amiga version then. I completed the C64 version several times without seeing any invisible ones.

Hmm I have a lot of disk images lying around which I haven't burned off to CD. Normally I wouldn't bother with it if it wasn't because there was some significant difference from the version I already have burned off on CD. Could be the version you uploaded Retro. Should I try posting it to the zone?

Damnit. This version also has a bug. Damn, I'm a perfectionist. Every little graphics glitch distubes me .

Well, seems as If I'll have to wait for the C.A.P.S. release.
Or does anybody else have a FULL woking copy ?

BTW: Here is a screenshot of the error. It's the version Drake posted in the zone, cracked and trained by TheLightforce.
I tried it with WinFELLOW043b1 and WinUAE08.14.r3.

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL HUMANITY, PLEASE TRY THE LATEST VERSION TO SEE IF THERE ARE STILL GFX ERRORS.

Even if your PC can't use it properly. 0.8.14 really do suck, it suck real bad (Compared to what I like to call "The Toni releases")

This is not a WinUAE bug.

I remember this one on my real Amiga.

There are some more non-WinUAE bugs, for instance:

If you jump up from your level starting position, the wall will turn into a rock but the rock does not fall down. It simply can't fall down because the "gravity routine" does not recognize the level starting point as space. I don't remember the level number but I can find it out.

Not quite. Cracked by SKYLINE, trained by the Lightforce.

By the way, this is a NON-TOSEC version, please add.

HQC crack with visible clouds is in the zone.
Please playtest it.
