Yeah, things have really slowed down this year due to the lack of decent games left to add

...maybe by the 2 year mark I would have completed Update Pack 30, meaning 600 new games since the public base release

Here is 26.1.
Was difficult to choose as I never played any of the proposed games. Gave them a go and finally have chosen "Crash Garrett". A really interesting one
(ps: press Enter to start the game - at first thought it hang as it was not responding to mouse & joystick button press )


Reinstall script not yet available. Before, will add support to update 26.2 & 27.

I added the walkthrough that I found somewhere; in this they say that the Amiga version (even the original disk) has numerous bugs and can't be finished

I haven't played through / verified though...

I wonder if the WHDLoad has these bugs fixed and is finishable?

Upon further reflection; I'm now in two minds about adding in the rest of the Simulmondo "action adventure" games i.e: I mean, the graphics / music are decent enough but considering that they are only in Italian... I can't really follow what's going on storywise, and this for me is quite important.

So, besides any Italian members that have my collection as they would obviously say yes.

Do you think it's really worth adding these in?

(could have been one shot, but let's follow the packs numbers)

26.2 :


27 :


Reinstall script updated

The game is multi-language, that's ! I have read that the first game is a good one but, more the series goes, more the game tend to be "difficult for nothing", thus frustrating and less interesting.
Personally, after having a quick go to the first one, I know the game has to be played with music turned off
Edit: By the way Damien. Do you know it these games are HD installable ? Maybe the waiting between the screens (screen transition) could be cut down if we were able to play it from HD ?

HOL "HD notes" for one of the Time Runners games says "Copy the game folder to your HD."

There are also WHDLoad versions of all the games in the Time Runners series; plus solutions (which I really should add).

I just noticed that for some reason the "___Title.png" for the following games were one pixel higher than the rest in the series; even though the exact same conditions were set when taking the screenshots
  • Time Runners 03 - The Big Run
  • Time Runners 06 - The Bewitched Forest
  • Time Runners 08 - The Impregnable Fortress
For me this was quite noticeable when scrolling through the series in my collection, have a look before applying the below.

Anyway now fixed, so just extract the attached into "C:\WinUAE"

Yeah I see that OCD Higher Pixel images

The problematic 3 images actually look sharper or brighter then the rest. You notice it on the Title Screen - 2nd person face from the left..

Definitely fixed 100% now though

I know it seems a little pedantic / OCD but I've spent sooooo many years (over 14 now) perfecting my collection... everything has to be right

I did look at Little Computer People: House-On-A-Disk some time ago and even configured / took screenshots... but thought it was a bit dull and boring to play.

I guess it's a classic for some people so may well reverse my decision
