thats nice i wish i had a flash cart + gba.

that port definately comprises mainly of the amiga version also, which imo was the ultimate release.
i wonder how long before heart of the alien or flashback is on the table...

heart of the alien never hit the amiga right? im pretty sure it didnt...

3DO version is the ultimate release, definitely. I'm attaching screenshots so you can compare Even the soundtrack was completely rearranged for this version, it's far better than in MegaCD Heart of Alien.

definately looks awesome but what of the sound and frame rate?
smooth as the amiga version?

the snes version slows down, the genesis version slows down, the pc version has inferior audio, the sega cd version is playable.
i've only ever played another world on my '030, does a stock a500 experience any chuggyness?

galu check pm...

If the game is freeware, like i have understood, why chahi has blocked the development of this engine??

AFAIK Heart of the Alien REDUX has a port to the Amiga.... you need the Sega Mega CD disc (or a copy) for it to work and the Amiga version of SDL.

This Another World doesnt work using a standard XG cart :-(

guess I'll have to keep mashing the emulator ... or just play the amiga

"Heart of the Alien Redux" ... do I hear a WHDLoad slave for it? :-)
