Dragon Ninja ATARI ST - Rare Version !

Postby catmando » Wed Oct 30, 2013 8:51 am

Hi, I am after a rare cracked version of Dragon Ninja for the Atari ST. I think from memory it was cracked and trained by Pompey Pirates or by Alien alone (though I could be wrong).

The version is unique and can be identified because the two different Drangon Ninja characters had white and blue trousers as opposed to the original ST version (and all other cracked versions) where they had white trousers and a slightly lighter grey pair.

Does anybody have this disk they could image for me, I had it once but that was long time ago and was almost certainly overwritten.

I originally put this post up on AtariAge forum back in 2005 (no responses now or since), so just thought I'd resume the hunt now that a decent amount of time has passed and more rare menus and games have come out of the woodwork.

cheers

I sifted through my collection and found several Dragon Ninja versions. I have not checked them but you can find them in the same download location we used last time. Credentials are the same.

Hth. Cheers,
T.

Compare the arcade version (above) to the Atari ST version (below), see both players have white/grey trousers

Here's the Atari versions I've tried where both players have white/grey trousers on so far:

Original (Uncracked Imagine version)
Replicants (Cracked by Dom)
V8 (Cracked by Yoda)
Automation Menu 340

If anyone knows any other menus please let me know, thanks

Hi,

Could you check something ?
When you do the spinning kick, do you go forward or not ?

It's diagonal up+fire.

St version, of course :)

I vaguely remember the story that there were 2 versions of DN for ST, one had a "static" spin kick, on the other one you went forward when doing it. Made Level 2 much more easier.

Can't you do that on the normal version by holding in a direction after you do the kick?

Edit: Hmm after reading the other thread on here it seems I have a short memory! Ignore that question.. :roll:

Ok, Dragon Ninja on ST exists in 2 releases : The first one, the retail version, had a bug for jumping, making the level 2 uselessly difficult to pass.

This bug has been corrected in the compilations 'Les Justiciers' as well as the 'Ninja Collection'.

This new version has a correct jump implemented, however, there's no changes on the trousers :)

Yep, I know this, but there was definitely a hacked version with blue trousers though.
