Hey everyone... most of you probably already know but if you don't venture in the other sub-forums then you can get hold of my Bomb Jack Beer Edition game and source here.

Enjoy!

Thanks for this. Much, much better than the pile of shit Amiga owners had to put up with back in the day.

There's a file called 'how_to_assemble.txt' in the root of the source.

Code:
Use VASM compiled with MC68000 support

Example....

$ vasm -nosym -opt-allbra -opt-brajmp -opt-clr -opt-lsl -opt-movem -opt-mul -opt-div -opt-pea -opt-speed -I .\BombJack\Include -Fhunkexe -o .\bombjack.exe .\BombJack\main.asm

Run the exe on your Amiga.
It should also compile in Devpac 3.02+ but you'll need to have a fair amount of memory (like 1mb Chip + 1mb Fast)

This is the greatest thing ever! I have been a massive BJ (fnar fnar) fan for years. So today I played it on my emulated Amiga on my arcade cab and it ran beautifully! Very impressed indeed. How did Elite get away with their port, I'll never know.

Tried it several times on my A1200/60 last night, and unfortunately I was never able to even pass stage 2, since the game always got stuck when collecting either a B coin or an enemy turned coin, or simply before displaying the bonus screen.
A real shame, since it's surely an impressive port and really feels almost like the arcade game (the most glaring difference being the P power up not switching the full colours palette and therefore the difference in points given to the player).
I really hope someone eventually makes a WHDLoad slave, this game surely deserves it: amazing work nevertheless, Graeme!

Interestingly, I've just tried again to make the game crash under emulation and I can!!! Specifically when I lose a life and it goes to setting up the round again - I get a black screen.

I'll try and see what is going on when I get time later this weekend.

Thanks for the kind words Funk.

Edit - Pretty sure I've fixed this now. Rather than release another version of the game I'd prefer it if people just contact me via PM and I'll give them a private fix.
