Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

Short update: Blitter sprite compiler works. Time to integrate some sprites in the game. ;)

Re: The X68000 games porting experiment

Are pacmania, galaga 88 and other emulated games still available somewhere ? I can't find them. Oops. Thanks for the info! The binaries were obviously not collected at a secure place. So far I've found a link to the (latest) Pac-Mania version in a message but I definitely have to clean that up on m...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

A try in 16 colors for Atari STE Thanks. I guess that you reduced the whole sprite sheet to 16 colours or did you map the colours to a different palette? You need to be very careful with the resulting palette because the background tiles are not included. In fact it's very hard to find a good match...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

one question, can you put those tiles in the same order and format as the one given in mame in the original tile banks ? I suppose you mean the sprite "tile code"!? Yes, it has been preserved in the file name of each image. I need it later on to identify the appropriate Blitter sprite to ...

Re: Pack-Mania

Great work. IMHO, even with the rather slow decompressing it's more convenient than changing disks. Thanks!

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

Well all the sprites are at least flipped horizontally in ghouls'n'ghosts. What do you plan, keeping the routine which flip the sprite frames, or do you need to have the sprites already flipped ? When you're certain that you can sort out the tile/sprite usage of each stage than I'll try to include ...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

there's another thing : This game takes a lot of memory, because all the game is directly accessible. Are you planning to make the game loading only the needed parts for each level ? This will also allow to reduce seriously the amount of colors without making the graphics too much painful to conver...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

(Oh, maybe re-reading that, it sounds like MAME was used to disassemble the original ROM and then its source was modified, which is absolutely brilliant, though I also would think that any patches to the source could be distributed, just not the actual source, which would need to be disassembled by...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

Anima, do you plan to make the game code ressourced available ? Anyway that's a great idea :) How much ram do the game will need on STE ? 4mb of ram ? I think there are two issues making the source code public. First it's still not completely relocatable and (even more important) there are legal qu...

Re: Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

So actually the Final Fight CPS arcade board would be a better target for a conversion rather than the X68000 version, with some effort anyway. Interesting. Yes that's correct. Well, a CPS1 "MMU emulator" for the Falcon is actually a tempting idea on the first look. At least it's a way le...

Thanks! :cheers: Was this the reason why you gave up on the Final Fight (also a CPS1 game) Falcon port Anima? This rings a bell... Yes, but also having a decompression/decryption routine at start was a problem for a straight forward disassembling of Final Fight on the X68000. That's, in fact, a good...

Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE

Daimakaimura (Ghouls 'n Ghosts) for the Atari STE At first I would like to say that I am not sure if the Atari STE will be able to have the power for a good port. Considering that the CPS1 system is clocked at 10 MHz (even worse: the ported game source code runs on a 12 MHz machine). Anyway, at leas...

Re: New "secret" project status

A short update: JagPad support added and tested. So playing the game works. However, my gameplay skills in this game makes it hard to explore how far it will work.

The name of the game begins with a "D" and it's an arcade port.

This is an Amiga 500. ...and was degraded to a keyboard/mouse adapter. Same as Falcon +CT60+SuperVidel? No. All older accelerators like the CT60 are kind of an investment insurance so that you still have a "modern" machine while keeping all your important programs. Today this has changed ...
