Tanglewood - wrong coder

The coder of Tanglewood is the same as the designer. Ian Murray-Watson - I spoke to him about the game. Timothy M. Purves wasn't involved porting it according to creator Ian.

The game has been converted to the amiga by Timothy Purves. This guy is american, and was contracted by microdeal to port the games from ST to Amiga.

What Ian Murray Watson says is only valid for the ST release.

I asked Ian again, and he says that he, and no one else coded that - and Turbo Trax - http://hol.abime.net/1530 - for the Amiga. I would like to see the source that says that Timothy ported it? It doesn't say in the program, it doesn't say on the box, and the author/Ian himself denies it. I guess someone could also ask Timothy also - do you know his whereabouts?

Check the picture i did from the game manual.

Ian is the ST coder, and Timothy was charged by microdeal to port the game on the Amiga.

It's bad to loose memory

Haha - yes it does. I went and had a look in my manual, and it so it says there too. Hmm, either it is correct, or it could be an printing error. In other games T.P did the conversion for, he is named in the start screen - but that is not the case in Tanglewood. But.. Ian has dug out and sent me his amiga source code backup disk, so if it still is readable, then we will see for sure if it is ST or Ami. You don't have any clue as to where T.P could be found? I had a go at searching, but no luck.
