Thank you for your Christmas gift :cheers:
I tested your preview and it's very promising.
Everything is almost perfect, good frame rate, beautiful graphics, digitized sounds and superb intro :thumbs:
The ST version has aged a lot :lol:
I am excited to see the game completed :D

Ditto, don't feel bad - pulling 12.5 hrs right now - but I'm off the next 3 days. Opening
presents when I get home in the morning, 3 hrs sleep, up and off to the parents for
Christmas dinner/fun! Must find isolated corner after eating for hibernation mode. :)

Can't wait to try this as well. :cheers:

Great presentation and gameplay! Smooth and looks very promising :D
I like that there are sfx when the old version only had music.

Will there be jagpad support?

Bod: Does it work on Falcon too or do I have to dig out my STE?

I tried it in hatari with falcon specs and it wouldn't run. Hopefully the next version will run on falcon too.

Well done bod! Looking forward to the next version!

Though I never played the original R-Type, I like this preview a lot! Very nice work, Bod.

I hope to see a final version some day soon!

Just to let everyone know the next release will be a fully playable demo of the first stage and then after that if all goes well the completed game.

As for jagpad support - not at this stage of development but I'll look into it and it maybe supported in the next demo release or the full completed game.

And I'm still on the lookout for someone to compose the ingame music as stated in the text-file. If your interested just compose it and send it to me.
Maxymiser or music-mod preferred.

Bloody hell this is fantastic! Shame it lacks a re-definable keys option for people like myself, who are no good with joysticks or hand controllers. I was surprised by how good the audio quality was too. Really looking forward to the final completed version, whenever that may be. :cheers:

Really great work, it looks, plays, and sounds (on title screen) excellent.
I will gladly work in re-conversion/re-arrangement of the original arcade music to YM, if needed.

Nice one dma.

Just compose them and send them too me. I'll look forward to hearing them. :D

Just one point - make sure the music doesn't need to use timer b for an effect. Would love to heard the sid-voice though.

Thx for the great gift! I don't have a real 1040 STe yet (the game does not run on Mega STe's too) but it works like a charm in Hatari with STe specs. I hope the next version will work on Megas and Falcons too.

Out of interest those of you who haven't got it to work on Falcon/Mega STE are you getting some text saying it's being run an the wrong type of machine specs, corrupt graphics, complete crash or does the screen turn red?

This is what i get

Code: Select all

r-type deluxe requires an 8mhz ste
with 1mb+ ram and color monitor.

sorry, you don't have the required
specs to run this game.

also turn off your computer and remove
any cartridges from the cartridge port.


Mega Ste is a 4MB Mega Ste with a TV (set to 8mhz). Falcon is with 14 mb st ram. No matter if the ct63 is enabled or not.

That's what your supposed to see if it's not running on a standard 1MB+ STE so I now know my checks work fine on machine's I wasn't able to test it on. :D
