[a1200] Stepfive final freeware version released

hi

More than 10 years after the 'first' final shareware version of stepfive, a tetris-like game, we have released the real final version.
Yes, we've decided to correct some bugs and released it as a freeware

So play it, Give us feedback
You can download the game, see some of our a500 demos screens, download 2 demos released on powermac 4400 in 1998/1999 here :

see you

Eric

ps : I hope I'm in the right place

*** Below post quoted from another News thread "Stepfive final, debugged and freeware ...". Thought I'd only quote, not merge to leave the game author's post at the top ***

The previous version, dated 1996, has got a big bug when the player came to level 8.

This last version had :

- Some old bugs corrected.
- Less difficulties.
- Improvement of the code (ASM).

With the links, you can see some old productions during 90's years made with Nightlight Team (sorry for the French site only) :

- Screenshots and demos made on Amiga 500. See the Sonic the Hedgehog demo for amiga !!!.

- 2 Demos made on powermac 4400/200

http://ericmcolleco.free.fr/index.ph...mationpowermac

- Stepfive Game, on the part "amiga1200"

The authors are curious to see if some feedback will be made for their old products and wish you a good fun with Step Five.

Mrod.

hello,

this game has been made around 10 years ago, for 68020 and AGA and PAL. The game need AGA and PAL to be used.

I will release a whdload generic slave on a lha archive for the game soon who will use a whdload generic slave to launch the game from amiga like 68060/voodoo3 (but will allways need a PAL screen).

the slave will simulate a 68020 with no caches/.... and will launch the game on a PAL screen with a whdload generic slave, from a Hardrive.

hope your problem will be solved with this stepfive version who use a whdload slave to be used on high/end amiga from HD (with whdload installed).

thanks for whdload.

@mrodfr: That would be great!!! Thank you.
At the moment I can only use the game from a disk with NOCACHE-option enabled during startup.

the nujack problem is maybe the game is crunched ???. Please ricco59, send me a no crunched version of stepfive for testing.

I have a great avatar, ricco59 ??!!?? :-)
