Another Jet Set Willy game

right, ive found another Jet Set Willy game for the amiga... one which i have never seen do the rounds, so i made an ADF of it (it was on an old HD) and upped it to the Zone for anyone interested.

it's simply entitled " Jet Set Willy 3" ... i guess the author didnt know about the unoffical speccy sequels at the time.


i think its not bad. It's an AMOS game, and there are a couple of bugs i've found, and to the hard-core JSW players out there its probably a triffle easy, but i dont think its badly done myself.

Upped to The Zone for all to enjoy!

(i will try to find the CD which i think had the original disk image on it, though no guarentees there)

I like the Atari ST version of JSW best

The programmers were NUTS!

Quote:
First of all, we disassembled the original Z80 code and reverse engineered it into C. We had no physical link between the computers - the disassembled code was listed on the Spectrum screen, and entered into the Atari by hand! Each screen's data was dumped as hex, and dictated to a typist who entered it into struct { } statements in the C program.

There are a couple of other good ones on the Amiga - Jet Set Willy 97 and Willy's Weirdy Nightmare are really good.

joking aside, i also found a few other the other JSW remixes i did around that time on the same HD.

"If i was a Rich Prick..."
"JSW Goes to Hell"

although atm i cant find the Manic Miner titles tune remix (sure i have it though) but fear i have lost my Moonlight Sonata remix forever

will upload if anyone is interested. they were intended for a JSW97 sequel as i recall.

I wouldn't mind listening to that music either. Also, do you have the registered version of JSW 97 (the one that allows you to save)? If you do would you mind putting that in the Zone as well please?

have upload to the Zone, the remixes - i even found the moonlite sonata one when i searched for the registered JSW97!... although there is a bit i did not think sounded right on Deliplayer, i also believe it to be the "lower quality sample version".... in fact, most of them seem to be this.

Have also upped a zip of the installed folder of JSW97 i have... which appears to include a save, and the registration file.

as a bonus, it seems "jsw97.amos" is in there too. The source code to the game.

maybe someone could fix the speed issues??



@whitegiant89

if you want it, im sure an ADF could be sorted for you. would only mean dropping in the files from the archive, and a couple of librarys.... and a startup sequence.

i've just looked at the source, and realised it uses a replacement titles music file (compared with the aminet version) - something which i had taken out of the Zip.

i've re-added it, and re-uploaded. sorry!

I think it's pretty good fun, though haven't got off level 1 yet

I haven't found any bugs as such yet, though it was being a bit erratic when I tried running it off my HD (or even from floppy from Workbench) - sometimes it would work and other times it crashed (one time the colour palette got messed up, strangely). Seems to work fine booting directly from floppy though.
