Port of IK from the ST

Done porting International Karate

Needed config is similar as my other game ports. Someone knowing well the original version is very welcome to thoroughly test that port.

This one wasn't so easy. It mixed TOS accesses (and many !) with absolute addressing (loading its data right at absolute addresses, yuck).
Having a few samples played on top of the regular YM2149 stuff didn't help either.
But, hey, now it's done. Another one bites the dust heheh

Note: If you're a skilled musician and want to show your appreciation for this new port, I have other projects needing your help. Just PM me.

I'm curious, what are requirement that you can do Amiga port from Atari version?

There are some atari falcon games that could be nice with accelerated A1200

Another great conversion. But i think even with 3=slow it's way too fast on an Amiga 1200+ACA 1230@28MHz. Any chance that you can make it a bit slower?

Edit: I get a freeze in Demo mode after a few minutes.

IK finally on Amiga. Working great - this is huge.

Didn't know this game also has a 2 players vs 1 cpu opponent mode (F4).

Nothing wrong, I tink IK+ is based on IK so it's nice to have both games on Amiga, that's all.

I just tried this on my 020 A600 and it's working fine, although it's slightly slow and i did have 1 random freeze!

Thanks Meynaf!

IK+ is great, but only has 3-player mode (with either 1 or 2 human-controlled characters).
IK is 1vs1. (With an additional 3-player mode.)

1) Be a skilled 68K programmer.
2) Have good knowledge of the Atari ST's OS and hardware.
3) Have good knowledge of the Amiga's OS and hardware.

This is sadly not a trivial job at all.

Rather than porting individual games, would it be possible to create a "universal" ST library capable of converting all library calls/direct hardware calls? Like a Amiga version of Wine (STine?)

For the OS this should be possible, Shapeshifter does it for Mac OS. The hardware will require some sort of emulation layer. In the end you'd probably end up with an Atarri ST emulator
