An arcade perfect version of Gauntlet would be very easy to do, hell even a straight port over (with hardware sound sample playback routines replacing the ST original software method) would be nice and smooth and still only inferior to one other release of that game (Sega MD Gauntlet 4). Every computer from VIC-20 to Sharp X68000 NEEDS Gauntlet :)

Ha, wouldn't a port of Gauntlet 4 rock? Gauntlet is one of my favorite games ever, and I have seriously considered buying an arcade of it. At the very least it will probably be the most played game on the MAME machine I eventually build... wven the newer Gauntlets are awesome. Only 3 on the ST kind of stunk, and that one would be awesome with the TT030 or Falcon speeds!

Btw, there is no death sound in the DMA version (just checked).
edit : no sound can be heard in 16Mhz mode. In 8Mhz, it works. The sound plays faster too.

Hmm, can we get the Atari patching king in on this? I know he posted on his site that he wasn't getting enough testers, so was talking about stopping.
I believe even on the ST version, there are things missing that are on the Amiga. Like the Heartbeat, the war cry, etc.
