The obvious one that springs to my mind is Phantasie 2. Unfortunately it's not on the list.

It completely baffles me why this was not ported to the Amiga, while the C64 got it !

The Amiga with its better graphics and sound capabilities would have been the logical platform to choose.

I know this game is not in the list, but would it be possible to port over to the Amiga?

Porting a game is a long and tremendous job. My port of HOMM2 isn't even finished, and people are already asking for HOMM3 and now others.

Do i have time to satisfy them all ? Assuredly not.

Perhaps i can take the time to port one game - if there is a reward

On second thought...

I don't have much time, but it does not cost too much to have a look. Some games are just too complex to port, but others may be easy enough.

However, i need suitable disk images to start something.
Emulator disk images may use a format that's not good for a port : what i want is just image of sectors in natural order. Protection does not matter. That is, same format as ADFs : just the data.

I have Gauntlet game already, but my version has errors, leading to bad gfx. After first look at the code, i think i can do a playable version in a reasonably small amount of time. Do anyone have it ? A 819200 bytes image is what i need, with sector at $CE400 having correct graphic data and not garbage (same value all long).

Also if you guys want Super Sprint (the most wanted game here ?) to be ported, i need a disk image of it (perhaps both disk images and game files, as i don't want to mess with FAT anymore).

So please put some disk images in the zone, or give me download link - and i'll try.

Never mind Lode Runner......my vote goes to Road Runner! Someone I know was working on an Ami conversion a few years back, and it was shaping up quite nicely the last I'd seen of it. Hope you're reading Ian and will return to it one day!!

I will surely donate to you if you produce an Amiga port of Super Sprint and I'm sure others will follow suit.

Would it be any easier task to port it to a WHDLoad version? as I think a lot of people would ask for this to be done anyway once an adf version is available.
I haven't got the first clue if this is difficult or not, I'm no programmer, but I'm pretty sure it's a very long and complicated process.

I just thought maybe it would be better to have a WHDLoad version than adf or no?

WhdLoad is NOT necessary to port games. Neither is adf.

Neither WhdLoad nor Adf. The final program will simply run under the operating system, launchable from WB and running in multitask.

You can download an Atari ST disc version of Super Sprint from planetemu.net. The files are easily copied from the disk image. Super Sprint would be a good choice because the ST version is actually quite playable.

I think I still have my disassembly of Super Sprint somewhere if you're interested.
I also know that the highscore was saved with a higher precision than the one displayed, and believe me we were very good at this game and we did some best laps that needed that precision. I even know a bug where you can earn many keys. To me it's a very playable game very enjoyable at 3 players, better than the arcade.

Atari ST was the only home 16-bit port.

That box scan is hideous! I can't believe that's the best shot they could get of the skateboarder - he looks like a retard with his mouth open like that!

Maybe that's why he needs to wear the helmet!
