Afternoon all,

I've just been looking on the EAB file server and have noticed that Willy's Weird Nightmare's not in there.

I'm sure I've got this (unfortunately, not the full version) kicking around somewhere, as it was released on a magazine coverdisk. You could then register for the full version.

Does anyone have the full version of this they could make available?

If not, I'll start digging and see what I can come up with.

Hi Rob, if you mean this game.... http://hol.abime.net/4685

Try here on the server...

Home /Collection/PD/F1 Licenseware Software

I uploaded a few other F1 titles there, also there is an F1 CD image on the server as well.

I can't access HOL at work (our network blocks it as it's in the 'games' category), but am pretty sure that's the one, as it was indeed F1 Licenseware.

Will download it this evening and give it a go.

A lovely game.

I've asked this question several times here, with no result, but I'll ask again just in case I get lucky this time.

Does anyone have the full version of Hydrozone by Skull Army Software?
And NO, the version which appeared on the Assassins disks, and on Amiga Action is NOT the full version, it's a three level demo.

The full version supposedly comes with source code also, according to the victory text, which I'm also interested in getting my hands on.

Funny Willy's Weirdy Nightmare being mentioned. I was thinking of that yesterday after reading this thread because I wrote an article about it for my blog a couple of years ago and, on downloading what I thought was the demo copy from the internet, discovered it was the registered version. Last year, the game's author left a comment about the article I wrote. I'll see if there's an email address and if he's cool with the registered version being made available.

I hope so because it's a brilliant Jet Set Willy-type game, excellent graphics and sound and well-designed rooms.

UPDATE: Found an email address attached to the comment so I've sent a message off to check if it's the same person.

Interesting blog article - I enjoyed reading that - thanks... I guess with the game now technically owned by F1 and us having the permission of F1 to share the game amongst our members makes Willy's Weird Nightmare OK to share...

@AnakiRob - I will take a look at the Shareware details of Hydrozone and see what I can dig up - I think it's safe to assume that no one has the full version - this is assuming a full version was actually released... it was written by the same guy who wrote Alien Fish Finger by the looks of it...

Ok... I could have some news on Hydrozone... it should be good news...!
I am now in contact with the author so watch this space.... will update soon...

I hope you enjoy the extra bits I added such as the map scans and notes for Numpty (along with the 'sampler' disk), and the registration letter for Beetle.

I'm just pleased that I'm getting some use out of my Amiga again, and that these disks and their accompanying documentation have a chance at being preserved.
Finally got around to playing a bit more of Beetle today and it's a great game - really need to get this entered into the Hall of Light I feel - I will make some notes as to game details and ask Cody (very nicely of course) to get some screen shots - the additional info that Rob has provided will also add some interest to the entry. Great stuff - Thanks again Rob!!

I need more time to play these games and do these things!!!

Sorry. Have been a bit busy this weekend, so only had time to nadger my Workbench installation up (thankfully fixed by Thomas!).

Will get it up and running on my 1200 this week.

If you have some notes (you should know what's needed ), I could help out with the screenshots if Cody is busy. Just post in this thread and we'll see who picks it up first

I don't... I wonder if Rob might know...?
I will try to find out...

Anyone who hasn't tried Beetle yet should take a look at this little video someone has uploaded to Youtube....
