Blackest Crypt - 5 new maps for Black Crypt

Hello.
Some time ago I create maps for Black Crypt for fun, and because game is 30 years old, so ideal time to release first ever addon.
5 maps is just a demo, but 3 hours gameplay. Some gameplay changes, see readme first.

https://id909.prv.pl/BlackCrypt/BlackestCrypt011.lha

Cheers.

I'm surprised more people aren't playing this..

Black Crypt is right up there with DM & EOB as one of the finest rpgs on Amiga, and its an exclusive.

I'm glad I got to finish it on real hardware when the original was released...

Dungeon Master was my first love, but Black Crypt first finished crawler. That same, on real hardware.

"Illusionary walls now renders on automap as normal walls,
so harder to find."


Does this mean the only way to figure out an illusional wall is to walk into every wall and hope to walk through it?

Don't you lose health if you bang into a standard wall anyway?

Yes, must walk into. Health stay, its not DM
I have mixed feelings to implement that. Original visible on automap is too easy, so like DM style to must touch. But in long term its boring i know. This is map hack so old visible and invisible illusions on map can be present at same time.

I think the appropriate term is "wall licking"

Or nose cracking.

Maybe someone play on real hardware and can check these pits?

Would be cool if you document how the levels are laid out in the data file, some one could write a tool to help people edit the levels.

Im not programmer so only a simple tutorial how data works, not professional technical document. And of course not completly decoded (change data and see what happened), but enought to make maps.

I am a programmer and I'm forever in awe by how people do these kind of reverse engineering tricks, I'll never be able to do that. Don't undervalue what you have achieved here.
