Genetic Species - Language Packs Unavailable?

Have all Language packs from http://www.vulcan.co.uk/english/game...tics/fixes.htm been lost forever?

EDIT:

Found (thank you AMIGASYSTEM!):

btw,

Genetic species have a bug in level 4 where if you don't hit some switches in the correct order you can't complete the game because some doors they will not open

Has also bugs in 24bit mode (using the GSAddOn_Engine.lha ): your weapons are always off whatever you select (it should show/hide them), and HUD map won't show your position. In 256 colors these issues are not present…

EDIT:
List of bugs I've encountered (I'm using WinUAE 4.2.0):
- in 24bit mode weapons will always be off despite your on screen settings (Config Settings > Display Settings)
- in 24bit mode the map (press Caps Lock) will not show your cursor position
- when exiting the game back to WB, the CD audio track will not stop

I never know how to run this game in 24 bit mode since I only have 8 bit screens to select?

First of all you need to download the GSAddOn_Engine.lha and run at least once "True" which generates a TrueGenetic.24bit file.

With WinUAE I've had to set for Color modes:



This should enable 24bit mode selection when launching "Engine":

ok thanks for the explanation
but which is the difference between 24 bits and 8 bits ?
because I don't think this game will be different in true colors or it use a different pallete for 24 bits ?

The only real differences I can notice are:
- missing weapons on screen (bug) :-(
- missing cursor in HUD map (bug) :-(
- some better lighting (some yellowish lights, better blue halo around neon…)
- I'm not able to run the game in Picasso96 640x480x24bit (?). Only AGA mode or Picasso96 in 8bit open a 640x480 screen… but I'm unsure its a problem of my display (has no 640x480 native resolution) or Picasso emulation, or it was tested only with Cybergraphics

CORRUPT AUDIO TRACKS!

BTW, I've found the two .cue + .bin images available on EAB ftp have corrupt audio tracks (lots of clicks, e.g. 1st audio track at 00:00:10...).
I've found an old CD 700MB of mine that is clean (but not original: data track was customized including latest patched EXE and localization files). I will upload my .cue + .bin on EAB ftp ASAP…
Vangelis-like music in this game was incredibly good!

No, the version on Aminet is just the data files and not the audio tracks.

One final question about this game:
can you play in 640x480x24bit mode with Picasso96? Because on my PC it opens a small screen in the center of my 1080p 144Hz monitor (that has no native 640x480 resolutions… I could use CRU to force/add it…) with WinUAE.
Only in 8bit I can launch the game in 640x480...

I can't even get 640x480 full screen, just small screen in the center.
But I see thats because c2p I have, it says 320x200 *ONLY*
What c2p you have and where did you get it if you can get 640x480 full screen?

instead of downloading again, i'd like to check if i have downloaded a clean version back in 2014...
which tracks should i listen to, which time? where are corruptions to be expected on problematic image?

at least there is no problem at 1st audio track (track 2) for me, no click or anything else at 00:10...

On ISO-CD EAB ftp Track 2 Minute 00:10 there are two Click one on DX channel and one on SX channel, however, you can correct it by cutting the click.

I think this Nero Burning CDImage (NRG) is corrupted, it was probably burned the wrong way
