A new version is available on Aminet (v0.96).

http://aminet.net/package/game/misc/TrackerHeroAGA

Feature list of the new build:
-New song dat cache system. Only each first song loading will be slow.
-Load/Saving data files reimplemented (needed for A600 port),
hoping not to break anything.
-FadeIns and FadeOuts added between game screens.
-Ingame speed improved, using less bitplanes for some blits.
-Error screen added, the song wont load if thre isn't enough
Chip RAM available.
-Menu option selection improved.
-Tooltip to close Workbench at startup to save Chip memory.
-Tooltip to force the NTSC mode.

The game doesn't seem synchronised with the music at all, or am I missing something?

I've tested the game a while ago, seems to be synchronised very well in my A1200.

I think the new version runs also on ECS Amigas.

EDIT: Not yet.

I don't think so, as TrackerHero is around 3-4MB uncompressed.

Tracker Hero ECS is under development, it will take a while because the target is it can run on an unexpanded A600, and this is quite hard to achieve. The problems I'm facing aren't related to ECS chipset but to the Motorola 68000.



If anybody is having problems with song/game synchronization please contact me. I need to know version of the game, Amiga model and if it's PAL or NTSC.

An adf doesn't exist at the moment, it would require a custom adf file size. I know it is possible to do them but I don't know how. Maybe someone at the forum knows how to.

Finally, I would like to remind you that new songs can be added easily with the editor, sharing the small .dat is enough but very few people are adding new songs or at least they aren't sharing them. It's a pity because I'm not a musician and someone with more knowledge of the mod format than me could create better and faster .dat files. There is no need to create new songs, moreover, pre 90s songs are the easiest to do.

I remember something about ECS, probably I read that on your "ToDo" list.

One meg is enough, but some mods will require more memory to load them

I wouldn't even bother to try and support the 68000, thanks to the ACA you can target an 68030 instead for the ECS version (that's what I do).

Yes, but you can have both. TrackerHeroECS running on an A600 with an ACA accelerator.

The game is already running on M68000 but there is still a lot of work to do. Now the problem is mainly memory, let's see

I'm pleased to announce that the first version of Tracker Hero for ECS is ready.

It requires a 68020+ machine.
