hehe, just the icon


Sorry. I picked this up from somewhere years ago and have it in a "How To" textfile...

Code:
      To archive all the files in the "RAM:DrawerName/" drawer simply type:

         lha -r a RAM:ArchiveName.LHA RAM:DrawerName/*

      and all files found in the "RAM:DrawerName/" drawer will be compacted
      into an LHA file called "RAM:ArchiveName.LHA".
This works with LhA 1.38 (25.8.92), which is the version I have.

Downloaded directly into my Amiga, unpacked and now I am going to try.

EDIT:
Just completed it on easy level and I just cant believe my own eyes (and especially ears) how much the game was improved!!! Once fantastic game is now AWESOME!!!!!!!! All those sounds, even the battle trousers has its own. Rain, blood leaking and dropping, screen shakes while big explosions and many other improvements. Torture screen is pure genius. And the rocket launcher - ha ha. Now with all those trophys the game is a big big challenge, and although I loved the original version, this is much much better. I noticed you slightly altered level design in some screens - I found stairs and bridges where they werent before and you also changed pallette and at least one screen (close to the car) completelly.

I am amazed.

BIG THANK YOU!!!!

Would like to echo Predseda's comments. This is really quite excellent and the attention to detail and replay value is outstanding. I've also donated, however if you released this and your other updated games in a pack for a small fee, I don't think anybody would have begrudged you a penny so a big thanks for releasing them for free - and a small donation is the least I could do!

I just played the new improved AFF (much later than I had anticipated) and I second Predseda's comments. This great game, is definately now awesome.

I only played through on Easy, but I loved every second of it. Tomorrow I'll play it on Medium and see if I can still make it through to the end of the game.

Just completed the game on Medium level. Some more achievements reached, too.

BUGREPORT:


After looking through the achievemenst menu / table and returning to main menu, if I press Esc here, the game crashes instead of returning to the workbench.

I seem to be so unlucky with bonuses (see attached picture)!

Does anyone know what "Ok" means when it appears onscreen on level 1. I thought it was because I did the level 1 achievement - despite having 4 icons left to collect! I did not get the achievement.(NB: Was playing on Easy)


possible bug:

I used the bazooka (hold down fire button to launch shot) at the last screen (missile) and was able to blast a hole in it without blowing up the missile!!!
I was then able to jump through said hole (thanks to little platform that sticks up) to the other side, but unable to jump back through (it was too high up).

I tried using the high jump trick and ended up stood ontop of the tip of the missile when the game suddenly cut to the ending. Not sure if it ended because the missile was "destroyed" or because I ended up going into the screen (if there is one) above the missile screen.

I thought it just indicated when you have collected enough of those items to complete the level, as opposed to collecting all of them to get the achievement.

Indeed, it indicates you have enough triatoms.

Nice try to use bazooka to the missile It is probably bug, yes, I dont think there is another secret behind it. David will tell us.

I couldn't find any secrets, I was just shocked when I saw the ending without actually seeing the missile fall apart/blow up as you normally do.

Hats off to the one that made this game. Looks great i never saw it before!
And from that youtube video, the music sounds amazing, it really gives a good "atmosphere" to the game.

hmmm, not sure if I've had that, all fine with my PC emulator. All I can say is don't press the ESC key when in the achievements menu. I will see if there is anything a foot.

Ah yes, that bonus is from that dead Green Blobs head. When you shoot them, their heads pop up so fast they sometimes get stuck in the ceiling. Then the bonus letter comes out and that is stuck too out of reach. I really needed to fix that sorry. It happens once in million. With you being the 1 in a million unlucky person, you get the 1 in the million every time you play . All I can say is don't put the lotto on, you will be wasting your money

Ha ha , That would have made a great Achievement. I wish I have had thought of that . Achievement name "STOOD ALOFT A MISSILE" . No secret screen above the missile, but there is one below it however.

Thanks for the nice comments. Hope I don't disappoint you too much, but the music on that Youtube video was added to the video by the guy that made the video (ScHlAuChi). It's not in fact in my game. Reading the read me to his video says it's from Nightmare Creatures Playstation Game. I agree that music has great atmosphere, and all should play it while playing my game.

No, 2001 a space odyssey.

I've been spreading your holy word, but ironically, nobody on the Amiga.org or the Amiga sites on Facebook have left a single comment. What the hell is wrong with these people?!?!?

I still swear that this is the BEST Amiga Homebrew EVER!

I don't think it will be me. I am still missing a couple of trophies hidden in some of the levels and need to find 0.2 of a second to beat the target fall time. Overall I have 40% achievements so far.

You just need 3 bombs and enough energy. I also dont know what the star trekking is, but mountain climbing imho should something to do with the mount in the first screen of that level. I am able to climb high, but not enough high probably.
