From what I can tell you probably don't need the YM music file as that is already incorporated inside the ST game. All you need is the emulator and where to patch the existing music routine which would have written to the YM registers.




Not much to go on, I'll ask for some more details if you like?
That binary is there, but there's no doc to explain how to implement it

This is easy, you can check Wanted Team page, custom module section, if you need music.

Well if you have a binary I can include thats simple enough to implement, then i'll be happy to use it and credit you.

Someone is doing me a Protracker module for the game, as a standard A500 has absolutely no chance of running the game and playing a YM emulation of the original music and playing it all at a decent enough speed, so selectable music would be nice to have a mod or the ST original.

If you can help with that, that would be appreciated.

MyST author Nicolas is looking for the details. He's asked Phil Graham (Grazey/Showaddywaddy of Dbug) if he still has it, being the only other person who's ever really used it.

Thanks for that, if it can be used as a player for Eagle Player, it must be able to be converted to run as a simple included binary calling a few offsets to activate, and ta dah, instant ST version included.

There are no info/docs in any aminet release but thanks for looking. Nicolas, who published MyST confirms he never sent developer info to anyone ( that he can remember) other than Phil Graham

Dunno if this is of any interest to you but Ocean Software employees have been going through their attic and found beta/demo versions of WTSS.

Nice. My version is nearly done now, just final playtesting, it 'might' be ready by the end of this weekend

Basic intro done, ingame options working for different display modes and music, just need to jiggle some stuff around to enable it to fit on one disk! :/

It was an ST demo they found, not Amiga.

All stuff that loads and displays and plays before the game now works properly on AGA or OCS/ECS.

Just a few minor bugs left in the game to sort out and its nearly done.

Might well add a save routine to save options ingame.

Finally managed to do some rejigging to get everything in that I wanted with only 25k left spare on the disk.

Haven't decided if i'm going to keep it fileloading or do it as sector loading, especially as it'll be converted to run through WHDLoad in no time at all.

Nearly done folks

Do you have idea which one should be converted? I think exclusives are mostly average and it's not worth someone's work.

Depends entirely how the game is coded. If its a similar written game, i.e. it dumps the Atari ST system right from boot up, its easier for me to tackle it, whereas most of the conversions Meynaf has done have been very ST system intensive games.

I have an idea on the next game, but don't want to say anything until this one is actually finally done.

Just had it running on UAE4DROID on my Android Tablet, and other than one screen scroll effect, it all ran as it should do.

In game music now works as it should, just need to get the selector and graphics options to work properly and we're nearly there.

WTSS was released on the ST, it's not a demo.

If you have a look on Facebook, you can clearly see that it's a demo version of WTSS for the ST. From Facebook:

Here's the demo for 'Where Time Stood Still'. Not sure if there's much difference here compared to the released version (other than it's unfinished). Still, at least it's another disc that works.
