I will release the source code but won't be straight away. Its currently got all the z80 interweaved as comments which doesn't make it a great read but makes it much easier to debug problems.

Anyway.... its release day tomorrow

I hope people appreciate this new Spanish text for this game, since the old one was absolutely TERRIBLE!
Massive kudos to Hoffman for being able to rework the "remix" text hack to be able to also accommodate Spanish using it.

I had lots of fun working and testing this one and am looking forward to the release tomorrow!

I remember that the msx version could be translated into different languages via patch, I translated it into mine in ITALIAN, can it also be done with the AMIGA version?

As explained before, it's not that simple.
Without getting techy, it wouldn't be the same as just hacking a ROM, where this text was available as "plain text".

And Hoffman already said there's no more RAM available. This is running on 512KB Chip + 512KB Fast.

Don't worry, I promise I'll play it in Spanish on the first go just for you Akira! Even though I only know 'muchos gracias'.

Much appreciated young man! Waiting for this release with baited breath! And hoping for an AGA 256 colour rework one day.
