Thank you everybody for this. Can't wait to play this game on my 1200.

Galahad, you are speaking of a CD32 version. If it happens will it be only released on System 3 website also ?

Another question : System 3 want the game only to be downloaded via their website. Is it in order to "test" the Amiga market ?

Thanks for all anyway, really !

You surely enjoyed to posts like if you didn't knew about the release while you had the disks !
Perhaps we shouldn't share it on real amiga disks too.
I hope everybody will respect the rules : not spread the game, no ftp, no links on eab etc... Please show the world that the amiga community grows and we are no more childish. Keep in mind that if all goes well perhaps others compagny will do it, and perhaps system 3 still have amiga games demos or else. This point is really important.

I don't know in honesty, I was thinking of doing it as a complimentary release.

The limitation on where to download the adds will be lifted in the new year, its just so System 3 can gauge just how much interest there was in it after all this time and demand.

What a great Xmas gift! Thanks System3 and Galahad!

Some questions to Galahad:

1) You mentioned that there were binaries in the archive given to you by System3. So was the version that was sent to all the magazines back in 1994 in that archive?

2) For all the John Twiddy fans out there: Can you provide some trivia on the code? Like:
a) How many lines is the code?
b) Is it well commented or are there rarely any comments?
c) Is it all in a single file or spread across multiple files?
d) What was the newest timestamp in the archive you were given? I.e. when was Putty Squad touched last? Were there any changes later than 1994?

3) Were there any signs of plans for a Mega Drive (Genesis) version of the game? e.g. abstraction of some routines for the Mega Drive (which also uses a 68000). A Mega Drive prototype of Putty Squad has recently surfaced on ebay... see here:
http://www.assemblergames.com/forums...wed-up-at-Ebay

4) Any signs for the IBM PC version in the code?

@Codetapper:
Now that contact to John Twiddy has been established, maybe you can do an interview with him about all his Amiga work for your site?

@all:
By the way, why is Twiddy not credited for First Samurai at http://hol.abime.net/563 ?

Was intended as NDOS or could it have been made ADOS with files?

It was originally an AmigaDOS format but with the added protection where key parts of disk ID would not be duplicated on a DOS or nibble copy.

All that had to be removed, but as originally intended, a directory tool would not have been able to display a root directory or files if that's what you're asking.

Thanks, just curious as to why it wasn't made a standard AmigaDOS disk with files, so just like SPS the disk is as close to how it was originally intended!

Not an entry that I filled but:


At 3:05 in this longplay he does not appear in the game credits:
[ Show youtube player ]

He appears in the hi-score table. He is also in the manual but only credited for "System Utilities" (3rd PDF "page"):
http://hol.abime.net/563/manual

It is very likely that he is behind the "Vivid Image" that is credited for Game Design (both in-game and also in the manual).

However, there is nothing official in those that states that he should be among the "main credits", hence why he is not credited in the entry.
