CD32: Your Recommendations

I now have my first CD32... So what are your software recommendations?

Could be games, pd collections, demo discs, what the hell could even be slideshows...

Looks pretty good..

How about official pd collections and more serious software?

Or games that have anything more/better than their floppy counterpart?

Don't think there's any serious software ON the CD32.. unless you count colouring books, lack of mouse and keyboard. 95% of the software is shovelware from 1200 with PC recorded midi tracks. I get the most from my cd32 when I stop trying to get it to be an a1200 and just see it as a simple and pure games machine.

The best/serious software is the CD32devkit / CD creation tools. LennonLives did a nice package and instructions. http://eabmobile.abime.net/showthread.php?t=40027

There's also a WB3.1 CD on the eab file server, really well done...just more nostalgia then useful. Can be a good starting point for further installs though.

What you do get is:
  • Really nostalgic psygnosis demo CD with planetside animation and lemmigs. This one was in all the stores, I love it [ Show youtube player ].
  • Two+ buttons, one for jump!
  • Nice whdload collections (cd200, cd888, team 17 anthology) Check the EAB file server.
  • Really nice WHDload patches (Two+ buttons, this time it really works!)
  • No disk swapping
  • Unlimited free storage (well in amiga terms, cost of a CD)
  • Some extra intro animations on a1200 games, (chaos engine non 3d render is nice)
  • Sound FX won't interrupt music tracks.

I think the only real system exclusive was (not counting PC)
microcosm
[ Show youtube player ]

Guardian and pinball illusions had some pretty music

I agree, the simcd32 tool is a nifty bit of sotware in that package.
It lets you mount any CD32 iso on your HDD and boot it like a real CD32.

I would have to go with Alien Breed: Tower Assault. The intro is so cheesy it's actually pretty entertaining.

Checked the flink on eab fs and that works without the odd problems... am i right in thinking that by pressing a button on the pad it toggles between pal/ntsc?

AB: TA is awesome! I have the floppy version and indeed the cd32 version has the cheesiest acting in any game, sewer shark comes a close 2nd

I have noticed the sitting in the lounge playing on a large tv is so much more enjoyable... I got pretty far on Qwak on my first go....
