Quick question....how did you choose which Mac games to include?

Prince of Persia 2 plays really well, I had the old DOS version and this looks and sounds so much better (and smoother)

They were game / MAC OS .HFVs made by wairnair; see this thread: Mac titles for CD32 via Shapeshifter?

I then took these HFVs; created my own .HDFs with ShapeShifter installed, modified to my liking, sometimes adjusted customised controls for joypad (CD32 setup), and finally created SaveStates for POP & POP2 after the protection screens.

Top stuff, really really impressed with these Mac versions, even prefer the original PoP.

Great stuff on the customisations. The gift that keeps giving this collection fella.

Some notes from that thread about "POP" and "POP 2":


POP:

The game can now be started using the CD32 controller; you press "Reverse" and then "Forward".

Finally, as the "Green" button pauses the game, I've mapped the "Yellow" button to "<ESC>" to unpause.

Download from here and just extract into "C:\WinUAE"

POP 2:

  • When playing and you die there is not "Press any key to continue" (or whatever the message should be).
  • The cutscene after finishing stage 1 never plays; will probably be the same for others but haven't got that far as yet.

When you jump onto the ship and the game just sits there; don't press the <Left Mouse Button> in the menu to continue as it will then skip the intro.

Instead press the <MAC Command + M> keys (<Menu + M> keys in Windows); which toggles "Ambient Music On" off / on). Wait for a second and press the <MAC Command + M> keys again

Edit: this <MAC Command + M> keys trick also works if the intro gets stuck.

With Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and The Flame I might also map "<Right Amiga> --> Reverse" and "<M> --> <Forward>" so I can use the CD32 controller to get past frozen cut scenes

Just by random chance; I took a look at a patch website DrBong posted this afternoon: https://www.patches-scrolls.com/sear...form=3&cnt=100

Went through the list, and noticed something for Sixth Sense Investigations AGA.

Downloaded and looked at the ReadMe:

Code:
SIXTH SENSE INVESTIGATIONS
==========================

English DISK release. (NO VOICES INCLUDED)
------------------------------------------

PATCH 
+++++


We're very sorry for this missing file from the first English disc
distribution of the game; thank you a lot for taking this free patch,
please just extract the archieve in the game directory.

Check that the file cell.init.cmp exists in the directory rooms/robocell.


CineTech and Epic wish you the best time with this game !
Please report us any comments and other problems !


  Vittorio Ferrari, project manager of CineTech

  (Vittorio.Ferrari@unifr.ch)
Checked my .HDF which was installed from the disks; and sure enough it was missing "cell.init.cmp"...

Have now copied this file to my .HDF

So, just download / extract this file into "C:\WinUAE".

Mightily impressed. I'm chuffed if I get an old game to work in DosBox. This is a whole other level. Respect

Not sure I follow what you mean malko?

The date and time "24/12/1996 11:32PM" is what occurs after files are run through TOSEC DATs.

The original file in your collection had a date of (1987) in the filename. The one in the pack has a date of (1989).
After checking on the web, it seems indeed that the date of (1989) is correct.
Movie is from 1987 (date as visible on the title screen of the game) but the Amiga game has been released in 1989 by Ocean.
I thought the date on the title screen was the one of the game release, but no, sorry...
