Willy's Weird Nightmare is definitely worth putting into the compilation disc.
I ve found the game it is F1 Licenceware and not public domain - I think what I will do is produce 2 cds - one for EAB forum upload only of all the full shareware games which PEter has got authors permission to distrbibute in this forum and one for outside distribution which contains the demo version of shareware games released on the Assassins disks / cds etc.

The Cd i am currently working on will probably be 180 - 200 disks - below is my current progress - there may be some games which might have to be removed for copyright permision as I am in the process of checking they are public domain demo versions of shareware games or later freeware releases .

I ve only tested in Winuae so far and will need to check on cd32 once all bugs have been removed.

You've got Starbase 13, but what about the other games in the series?

I wasn't aware of the other games - I do have Epsilon 9 downloaded from aminet but I am having difficulties getting that to work - are the other games all from the same series - Entity, Experiment, Lethal Formula.

If so I will have a go at trying to add them if they are of the same quality as Starbase 13.

The Experiment and Entity are a side series set in the same universe. Lethal Formula's a separate game, but it's my favourite of the GRAC games. There's also The Lost Prince by the same programmer:

I can get Starbase 13 and the Lost Prince to work with the following start scripts:

CD0:Games/thelostprince
lostprince

and

CDO:Games/Starbase13
starbase13

but I can't get the Experiment or Epsilon 9 to work - do you know which file I need to access in the second line - I am using the download from Aminet?

I am also having similar problems with Lord of Alcandria III which is also on Aminet - by a different team but also a good point and click game?

Both available Lord Of Alcandria games would be great additions I have them as HDF files, so I'll have a look tomorrow and upload archives that should work.

Thanks - that will be brilliant - I can get the intro to work on Lord of Alcandria but not the actual game - from the screenshots and reviews I ve seen these games seem quality and I would love to play them.

On a seperate issue I keep getting a common error on some games (Pokermania and Super Foul egg to name but two) The error is:

Program failed (error #80000003)
wait for disk activity to finish

Is there a common cause and a common solution to this or can it be caused by many factors?

Open the "Experiment" file and you'll find it's just a script. You should be able to modify that. For Epsilon 9, you need to run "Epsilon_9". Make sure you've either copied the libs and fonts to LIBS: and FONTS:, or reassign them the way the Experiment script does it.

Excellent idea, might I suggest that the special edition contain Gravity Power instead of Gravity Force 2, it has all the features of its prequel and then some.

Or maybe the original authors could be hunted down in order to get their permission to distribute it on the public release.

Well both I guess. It can be caused by many factors, but one common cause is the Amiga not being able to find a file that it's looking for.

Try putting ALL the standard workbench libraries (on the workbench disk) in the LIBS: directory and see if that makes a difference.

I think it will probably be the game is looking for a file and not finding it - I've now just cleared 150 games which work and will soon be coming to an end of adding new games and begin testing on a real cd32 - the disk will not be more than 180 games as it seems a good round number and the more games added the longer the toolkit takes to generate the cd - excluding the point and click adventure games which I will look at this weekend and others are helping with I am still having problems with the following games:

Atic Atac - version of spectrum game - doesn't load
Poker mania - card game Program failed (error #80000003)
Super Foul Egg - puzzle game Program failed (error #80000003)
Pucman Worlds - pacman clone - doesn't load
Santa and Rudolph - festive fun jetman type of game - doesn't load - problem locating fonts
Return to Earth- Elite clone - - doesn't load
18th Hole - Golf - - doesn't load

Out of the above I am keen to get Poker mania / Super Foul Egg and Santa and Rudolph to work and whilst I would be disappointed to give up on the others I don't think it would impact too much on the playing experinece of the collection.

All these games are available on one of the four Assassins Cds but it would be nice to have them all on one cd - can anyone help - I can send the files I am using to individuals if that makes it easier - or if you have them installed successfully on your hard drive and can send me those files that would be most useful.

UPDATE: Thanks to Ant512 - now have Experiment and Epsilon 9 and Lord of Alcandria II and III working.!!!

I have spoken to Jim Young (F8 or U4IA if you prefer) Jim has kindly agreed to letting us use his Amiga music in the creation of "amigapd's" Public Domain CD so long as no one makes any profit from it. I said that this is totally understood.

Jim has even suggested a couple of bits of music which would be good for menu's, info screens etc... I will hunt down and zone them when I get a minute.

Hope this helps.

One suggestion, replace Gravity Force 2 with Gravity Power.

Quote taken from the official Gravity Force 2 Homepage
Quote:
The final version of Gravity-Force 2, "Gravity POWER" was made for the magazine Amiga POWER. It has all the features of v1.10 (the registered version with serial link-up option) and some extra stuff & levels. As Amiga POWER doesn't seem to be around any more (sad but true), Gravity POWER can now be downloaded here.

Better late than never.... I stumbled across this thread on my android phone the other night. Congratulations on getting this compilation of excellent games on CD!

And it's an honour to see my game on there too! (Poker Mania). Cheers.

*EDIT* Just tried the CD32 CD via WinUAE and for some reason I'm getting Project X title music in the background of Poker Mania.
