*Test all games to make sure they run on a stock CD32
*Test all games to make sure they run on a CD32 with FastRAM


All testers will have their pseudonym on the credits page as a way of thanks.

Anyone wishing to help can download v0.1 here.

Nice one Amigajay

...a lot of cool PD games in there; which I also have in my collection

Noticed you hadn't completed the series for these games though:

1) you've included A New Adventure: FaYoh 2 but left out the first one FaYoh.
2) you've included Renegades Deluxe but left out the first one; Renegades (PD).
3) you've included Sqrxz and Sqrxz 2: Two Seconds Until Death but left out the later ones; Sqrxz 3: Adventure For Love and Sqrxz 4: Cold Cash.

Finally, I noticed in your "10 Must-Play OCS PD Games" you've not added Thesius XII


Edit: regarding "Thesius XII", the game starts on level 3 and also the file used is v0.95.

There is a v0.97 .ADF available here: Thesius XII v0.97 (2003-09-15)(Underware Design)(FW).zip and also HD installable files.

Cheers Damien!

Yes i havent added alot of games yet, wanted to hit 100 then push out v0.1.
Last time i looked Sqrxz 3,4 were adfs i couldnt extract, will take another look.

The top 10 will change as other games are added, i guess it will always be subjective!

Thanks for Thesius XII 0.97 , will take a look at updating that

Yeah, they are "NDOS" so that's a no go unless you're a coder / programmer

If you use the HD installable files from the author's website, like I did with my Thesius XII - "HD install" --> "ADFs", then there's one version with "speech"

I'm going to test the homebrew disk because there are a lot of games I have not played on

Some games asks me to put a "LOCALE" disk from workbench loading screen.
Can it be because i've Workbench installed on my HDD with my SX32?
If i click on cancel, game continue to load fine, but if you haven't a mouse, you're stuck!

@Amigajay; can this not be fixed by making an assign like the following or something (unless it really requires files from the "Locale" disk to be installed somewhere):

Code:
Assign LOCALE: RAM:

I guess so, its not something I’ve encountered before and probably unique to SX-32 kind of setups.

@Rochabian if you can put a list of the games coming up with this i can change the start ups on these next update.

Test finished for CD32 + Fastram with SX32
See above for report

I've retested some games that are working now because my lens was a little bit used...

Some games really need to be played!
Nice

Thanks Rochabian, i can't promise to fix them all, but hopefully some will work better on the next update.

I've added to Assign "LOCALE: RAM:" to the first set of games, so hopefully this will sort the requester issue for those.

Though I've removed Hoi Remix and another game (not listed here) because i hate workbench and cli screens on a console setup, so have gone back to the blank system-config file to hide these screens and as such any games loading from a workbench icon/requester won't be included.

Parachute Joust seems to reset on whatever disc I've played it on even back in the day.
Aquanaut - should be fixed now.
Zombie Apocalypse II AGA is fixed now, didn't like fastram!

Some of the other glitches you may have to put up with, could be a number of things, i can't replicate any issues on stock or with fastram, maybe its your OS?

I'll include the new disc with my Anthology 3 set out 3rd December, will have 50 more games in v0.2.

Can't you just set this in the disc's "S/Startup-Sequence" instead of applying in each game script?

Can you not possibly use WBRun with these?
