Thank you for this and the other shareware games you are sharing with the community here. Awesome stuff.
That's great feedback!
Sounds excellent - would love to have seen a video of that meeting!
Really pleased that everyone loved Wired Chaos - your right, it is a great game.

I 2nd that, that sounded cool. It does take a bit of practice. I too found it a bit hard after 15 years of non play, but it does get easier after a short amount of time. Them maze levels were a bit tricky with the poo D-pad on my joypad.
What other multi-player games did you play at your meeting?

Just spent time playing it this evening (for reviewing purposes) - it's really good, very addictive, and I particularly like the number of different options. Shame there isn't an option to use a joystick adaptor though, fitting one player around a keyboard is no easy task let alone four...!

Get them to eat less Donuts .
Yes, it would have been nice. I never had one back in the day.
I guess if your using an emulator you could emulate the keys to joysticks/pads. I not tried that myself.

The thought of letting anyone actually touch my Amiga sends shivers down my spine...!

Never did find the full Amiga version of Psycheul and I lost contact with the author Ben James... shame really as I thought I was making real progress here... still never mind, cant win them all...

At least I am able to now play the PS1 version of the game, Psycon

I couldn't play the upload that Ben gave us the link to as I don't have a chipped PS1 but after searching for ages I finally found a copy of Playstation Magazine disk 42 that has the Net Yaroze Compilation on it... picture attached.

It's a good game - I like it, wish it were the Amiga version though!

After all these years, it's all gobbledygook to me!

Here's the source code: http://www.fileden.com/files/2008/11...44/psycheual.s

CD image to follow if it ever finishes uploading.

Reposting my request also here:

Bacman (1992) by Freddy Krysztofiak

The "PD" release is in fact a 1-level demo whereas the author promised a full 18-level release. Thanks for any reply.

I upped several items into the Zone. 3 are relevant to this topic's rules, so I will describe them in detail:

Bacman.adf -- the demo version I found online. Perhaps someone will have the full version?

BrainDead & BrainKiller -- two titles, but most likely, one game. BrainDead has no readme with it, BrainKiller has this:

Short: BrainKiller new 3D Shooter
Author: VirtualMadness
Uploader: TitanHB@vossnet.de
Type: game/Betarelease for test in Amiga Magazines

-- BrainKiller AGA TESTVERSION 1.2
-- Amazing 3D shooter
-- sales version supports all Amigas with 68020, 4MB Fast, mimimum
Graffiticard better AGA or Cybergraphix
-- This is AGA only demo at the moment
-- 15 huge levels to slove, with different enemies, weapons and
-- 256 colors on screen display
-- 10 MB of Harddisc space
-- better fun with 030 50Mhz or higher
-- 8 Channel bombastic sound which will blast your mind )
-- speaking sequences
-- Release July/August 1997
-- on floppy disc
-- new weapons and lighting effects added in version 1.2

LShift = launch mine LAmiga = fire LAlt = Kick
1 = fists 2 = plasma 6 = Machine gun
8 = rocket launcher o = mission m = motion tracker

** we develop to give the AMIGA a new future **
BrainDead is dated October 1996, whereas BrainKiller May 1997 (there are some newer files, but they are configs/readme/icons, not the actual game content, so May 1997 is the compilation date). Both are VirtualMadness titles and both have some similar files in their entrails so I assume they are actually one title that never got released. Anyone has any lead for VirtualMadness and/or its employees? Perhaps a full version or at least more levels (if it was cancelled) can be recovered.

Shouldn't this topic be pinned, by the way? It looks important enough
