It's not easy to get an original GGS disk.
Download the WHDload version from here
http://www.whdownload.com/games/Pack..._v1.3_2500.zip

Inside the Zip is a Disk image called Disk.1 this is made from an Origanal commercial release -There were two commercial versions the first one had a bug saveing the high scores.You can also get an image in IPF.

Yeah im sure ive read that the Red Sector version has bugs in later levels.

Ive been poking around a Little in GGS Only with the maps and graphics - :-( Im still riping graphics when I can they seem to be all different sizes.

Id be curious to have a look at the source and compiled version ,Please could I get a Copy.

Arrrgh! I should have known that before I started resourcing.
Maybe it's enough to extract the end-level...

I have all data as separate files. A problem might be that the graphics also include data: for example all masks are preceded by three words defining the width in words, width in pixels and height.

No problem. Just drop me a mail.

Amazing - only had a quick look
Bobing.data - has the main Sprite
MapIMG.data - main tiles
Have to look further but very impresive.

Ran perfect from HD and exited pressing ESC back to workbench

Same kind of list for PC DOS games, a bit off topic but could be interesting for porting those game to the Amiga eventually.

Added Feud.

First post can't be edited anymore (maybe it's too old).

Apologies if this is off topic, I'm attempting to make a very minor tweak to Test Drive 2 but haven't been able to disassemble it into something I can reassemble. IRA gives me this error:


Hunk...:00005734 NOT SUPPORTED.

Which file did you try to disassemble? Is it even a hunk-format executable at all (has to start with 0x00, 0x00, 0x03, 0xf3) ?

If not, you should try to disassemble in binary mode (-BINARY option). Otherwise, there may be a bug in IRA.

Test Drive 2 has overlay hunks IIRC. IRA does not like them a lot. D68K works rather well with them.
Well, I prefer IRA, but when I cannot use it, I fall back to D68K. You can even convert D68K code into IRA code using a proper "sed" command.

@phx it does indeed start with those four bytes.

@jotd I guess that's the problem! I haven't been able to assemble it with Phxass after putting it through D68K though. I don't know what switches to use, I figured NOPC and HexData switches were the logical ones but it results in a single error when attempting to assemble it:

Code:
JMP	L000C49(PC,D0.W)
36 Undefined symbol
in line 37766 (= line 37766 of duel.asm)
If I comment out that line it assembles (a few KB larger than the original) but doesn't run at all.

Btw I'm totally new to anything ASM related, so apologies for my ignorance

You're right! Overlay support is still missing. That explains it.
But also D68k doesn't explicitely mention Overlays in its documentation. At least it seems to read (or skip) those hunks correctly.

As far as I understand D68k generates code which is compatible with the A68k assembler. PhxAss should assemble A68k sources fine.

JMP    L000C49(PC,D0.W)

Did you see L000C49 anywhere else in the output source? If not this may be a bug in D68k.
This looks like a jump table, and the L000C49 label cannot be far from the JMP instruction (maximum 128 bytes before or 126 bytes after it).

LoadSeg() doesn't even want to load it? Or does it crash?
Maybe the overlay support is not perfect after all.

Nope, I didn't. One peculiarity with the labels, the label before that instruction is L000C48 and the one after was L000C4A. Peculiar that they mostly increase by iterations of 1 except for that big jump there.

Just gives Software Failure, program failed (error #8000000B)


It could be that d68k doesn't like it or I'm using a completely wrong combination of switches

Most likely a D68k bug.

Maybe the removed JMP is so important that it is executed early. So the program runs over the now missing jump into the data of the jump-table. Guru #8000000B means that the data starts with $fxxx, like an FPU instruction.

When you show me a few lines before and 10-20 lines after that JMP, we may be able to reconstruct the missing label.
