Arctic Moves

Having revisited Navy Moves recently, there was mention of an upcoming sequel called Arctic Moves. Dinamic dissolved and the game was never released until 1995, where it appeared on the PC. Apparently, the Atari ST version surfaced circa 2001 via Luis Mariano Garcia. I think this would be a great item for the aGTW team to pursue.

From the two Spanish links below, it seems that the Amiga version was 90% done.

(I had to use a language translator, so maybe I'm missing some vital information.)

Well, i have read the wholw thing, and basically, he says that the Amiga version was a little bit done, but atari ST version weas 90% , so a couple of years later the programmer finished it.
I cant get in touch with them (i speak spanish), and try to see if we can trace this game, in Amiga version, what do you think?
Cheers!

Sebastian,

It would be great if someone contacted the programmer. Not sure if CodyJarrett had any luck tracking him down, but perhaps you can contact the guys at computeremuzone.com to see if they have Luis Mariano Garcia Corral's email? It might be good to point them to aGTW's website, and tell them that the Amiga community wants to preserve the Amiga version. I'm sure if the Amiga version is only 90% done, someone like CFOU! would be able to finish the rest -- especially if we can obtain the source code and we already have the Atari ST version available.

I found this addr, luism@recoletos.es , but I doubt it's the same guy.

Please update us on any progress.

Cheers!

Hey, that'll be great. I wasn't able to get far with this, but it'll probably help if I knew Spanish. When Gavilan last checked, the webmaster of http://computeremuzone.com had lost the author's email info.

Not a big deal, but here's your PM from 05 May 2006 which read:

I will try to hunt down them, to see if we can get at least what was done of arcti Move before it vanishes

Cheers & have a nice weekend

So the Atari ST version is 100% complete judging from the above post?

Also, Atarimania list the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish

Can one confirm both of the above are true?

Finally, no luck with getting the Amiga version so I guess the only way we would be able to play this on the Amiga is for someone to port the Atari ST or DOS version?

Tests with Steem showed only spanish. Language menu had no effect.

...better than nothing I guess.

I watched a DOS video and even the title screen etc. seemed to be in Spanish.

Does anyone know what's supposed to happen when pressing the F1 key when in the menu part ?
(I checked on STeem, and... errh... i doubt what happened is a useful option to have...)

Our friend DamienD has successfully convinced me to strike again !
(Thanks for your incentive my friend )

This time the victim is Arctic Moves (obviously ).
Not really easy to do, but not so hard when you know how. Just took more time than it should.

Current version can be downloaded here.
Prerequisites are pretty much like any other of my game ports.

Just like with meynaf's other Atari ST ports; here is an .ADF version that extracts to "RAM:" and shows the "arctic.readme" file via "PPMore" before starting the game:







File is attached for anyone that wants it

****************************************************************************************************

UPDATE

Guys, you should use the new disk in
post #35 that doesn't need to be extracted to RAM...

The one attached to this post requires "2MB Chip & 1MB Fast RAM" and only works on an AGA Amiga.

Details of the new disk in
post #29.

****************************************************************************************************


I'll now also update the Ports / Conversions --> Amiga thread to include this new port
Attached Files
File Type: zip Arctic Moves (2017-02-23)(meynaf)[Atari ST conversion].zip (741.9 KB, 174 views)
