klapauzius.net is online

Postby Klapauzius » Tue Jan 01, 2008 2:58 am

Hi all,

Finally found some time over the Christmas holidays to do what I wanted to do for a very long time: build a little web site for all the Atari ST stuff that runs under the Klapauzius label. You will find some hard disk/Falcon/etc. patched games as well as some of my old and dusty menus I did many years ago. As many of you will know, I'm also a member of the Atari Legend team. The stuff you will find on the new site doesn't fit on the Atari Legend website for one reason or another, so rather than keeping it for myself, I decided to give it its own home.

A few patched/trained/etc. games are already online, as well as the first release of menu #10, which was 'finished' many years ago, but not made public yet.

Enjoy - and a (slightly belated) happy new year to everyone! :-)

Excellent. I really like it. Plus, I found a very nice crack of Last Duel so thanks for that.

Good work - especially the "exit back to GEM" function.

One of my personal all time favourites has now been reconditioned to work on newer Atari machines and from hard disk:

Arkanoid

This version also has some additional goodies like new levels and a few nice trainer options. Download it here and enjoy! :-)

Amazing what you can squeeze into a 48K .ZIP file these days :)

Nice one Klaz .. especially the old DMA add-on levels. Only thing missing is the version done by The Exceptions which had a "proper" conversion of the old C64 title music :)

Great! I love it!

The only thing I should ask for is to be able to stop this annoying "music" every time a new life starts...
(speaking about Arkanoid, of course).

Yeah, the music is a bit of an ear-bleeder, but I for one would miss it if it wasn't there. Gives me that warm nostalgic feeling... ;-)

Maybe offer an option to switch off the horrid XBIOS(32) tunes :)

Aaawww...... and that after I had to implement my own XBIOS(32) routine to make the game independent of its environment.... ;-)

Maybe one day... :-)

I was just thinking of you forcing in a few NOPs here and there to stop them playing :)

Well, the last couple of days at work were quite slow, so slow in fact that I even could fire up good old Steem debugger on a PC and do a bit of hacking. So here is another HD/Falcon/etc. fixed title that also appears with a trainer for the first time:
Mickey Mouse by Gremlin.
You might well need the trainer, because even when it looks a bit like a kid's game, it isn't that easy to beat all four towers. ;-)

Get it here. :-)

Great work Klaz - it's nice to see the golden oldies fixed.

One request would be (for asthetic reasons) to address the oncreen flashing whilst the games are depacking - D-Bug have been doing this with their cracks and it looks so much better.

(For example, Zynaps does it briefly upon loading)

After chatting with GGN about it, I think it only requires a small change to the code; something to do with choosing another palette colour I think. GGN helped me fix my copy of Awesome by changing two hex values - I did it with him via MSN, so I can't imagine it causing a pro like you any problems! ;)

Well, actually I like depacker flashing and I tried to make it not to look too obtrusive. It even took some effort to get the flashing to look like it does now on the various machines - each 'flash' is exactly one screen line wide. ;-)

Perhaps I should make it an optional feature? :-)

There are also situations when you load and depack from a ramdisk (if the program has been launched from HD), where you might get the impression that the program has frozen (no floppy or HD LED activity, no reaction to keys, etc.). In this case, the flashing shows that the program is still alive. Black Sect is a good example for that.

I know it's nothing of real importance, but I would like to learn what you all think about this.... :-)

Hey Klaz,

I completely understand the usefulness of the flashing during the process of cracking of a game (to see if it freezes/crashes, etc.), but I personally think that when finished, tested and finally released the flashing should be removed (as D-Bug do with their cracks).

This is just a personal feeling (I like to play games from my HD but still to look as good as the originals when loading), so no worries. After all, these are your cracks so it's totally up to you.

Anyway, please continue with the great work you are doing with these.

Personal preference is to have the flashing on .. or maybe the LED light flashing if on-screen flashing is annoying. However the LED flashing might incur paranoia in others that "something else is going wrong" :)
