Exclamation Who knows Amiga Pang inside out?

I just wanted to ask you guys on which is the earliest level the "helper monsters" (crab, bird etc) start appearing, as I wish to determine which Pangs in the TOSEC database are based on the beta and which are based on the final.


I appreciate your help in all ways possible!

simple, the final version has the pets flying or appearing on screen, when the
BETA has not them.

That's what I meant in the first place - but I was asking do these monsters not appear until a certain level? Level 3? Level 16?

Hey MethodGit,

These posts were taken from the EAB/Lemon Super League General Discussion thread:

In a nutshell, the old cracked version was a walk in the park easy, compared to this version i loaded up tonight, so in making this clear, i think we should all be playing the same version of the game to make it fair

( maybe im wrong and my memory is failing me, or maybe i just had a really really bad cracked version all those years ago!? )

I will up it to the Zone and PM you about it too in case you dont get this message.
I believe this version was the only one in TOSEC found that had the "helper monsters" enabled... Unfortunately though, I can't remember exactly which version it is that blade002 uploaded and we used for the competition. I'm actually in Singapore at the moment (and will be for the next 2 months) so cannot check my USB HDD with The Zone! uploads...

Hopefully blade002 can shed some light when he's online

Oh, and from memory the "helper monsters" start appearing from level 3. Could be wrong though as the competition was quite some time ago now.

The proper version is Cracked by Proj Inc. and has a +4 trainer
Which you would know if you used GameBase Amiga...

Proj Inc. had 2 cracked versions w/ + 4 (really +5 if you count the PAL/NTSC option). Be sure to look for the 100% one that has the later date.

If someone was really clever, they could freshly crack a Pang original and allow it to be written in ADF format, hence a clean ADF!

The Proj. Inc version works perfectly with all the "helper monster" enabled.

I also completed this version during the EAB Games League so it's been tested 100%

Cheers for your help, everyone! Now I've just gotta let the PSPUAE guys know that their emulator appears to make Pang quit by itself during the second world every time....

you running Pang from ADF or are you running from the Save-state on site? (which is probably the JST version)


edit: my bad, there is no version on the website. my advices; try different settings (particulary cpu-chipset options) and / or try running the jst or whdload version from ram: !
