Req: Tanks 'n Stuff

Or was it Tanx n' Stuff? Either way, I remember having a demo of this game way back, with only two levels, one with tanks and one with boats, but even so I played it to death.

However, it doesn't seem to be in the TOSEC and I haven't been able to find it anywhere else, so I'm just hoping that someone might have it. ^_^

Tanx 'n Stuff *IS* in TOSEC, however, it's not available from planetemu.net because it was only recently added to the database.
In the zone.

wait wait wait... you mean tanx 'n' stuff the REGISTERED version is in tosec ????? I also had this 2 level demo, and it ROCKED, it was one of the best, if not THE best multiplayer game I ever played.

I've tried to contact the author, I searched the internet, I requested in every amiga board I ever went (I even requested it twice here), but could never find the registered version

Copied it to disk and played it like crazy on the Amiga. Does the full version of this game even exist?

Ben Campbell made Quick Money according to back2roots, no contact details though.

According to the docs in the demo version, when you register the game you were supposed to also get the games Battle Zone, Quick Money, and P.H.R.E.D.
Do you have these, as well?

I'm afraid the original disk corrupted a long time ago

I transferred T&S to HD before that happened, but didn't think to transfer the other games - that is, assuming they were on the disk. I don't recall to be honest.

Erm, btw, how do we use these files from tns_registered.zip with UAE? Don't you need the ADF file to make it run under UAE?

Please help!

Not really. It's just like any archive file for any system, really. Most WinUAE users think only in terms of adf files the same way old A500 users felt like they could only run software from standalone, bootable floppies. An adf could be made that would auto boot into this game, but this archive is simply the files needed to run this game, as opposed to whatever system files it may need. I'd offer to make an adf of it, but odds are someone else would get to the task before me. If I have time and nobody else beats me to the punch, I'll try to remember to make a bootable standalone disk. Then it will be TOSEC-ready, as well.

I made a bootable adf of the full game, made a zip file but uploaded the wrong file DOH!

So you have a full 880k to download, sorry

Anyway can someone see if I made any mistakes as I'm a bit rusty at making bootable adfs.

Well, the disk in the Zone now is the version from The One coverdisk, so it's not the right file. Up the one you made and I'll check it out.

Sorry, I haven't used ADFs in a long time, emulator or not. This can be unzipped to a configured Workbench and executed from there. Hardware config might need to be set rather basic, I don't remember how system friendly it was.

But that is the one I made from this file
http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~echo...registered.zip

There is a key file, maybe I should have put this in S: ?
