14th August 1988

Dear Tony,

       On this disk is everything you'll need for protecting Eliminator.

The files are as follows:

     ELIMINAT.JMP      - game code (300k)

     ELIMINAT.NEO      - title screen

     AUTO/JMPBOOT.PRG- my demo booter

     JMPBOOT.S      - source for above

Other details:

-- The game calls TRAP#15 before each level, my booter puts a
   dummy rte here

-- You can put your protection code above the screen at $7FD00

-- There is a 16K table at address $8E02..$9E01 which you can re-use for
   your protection buffer since it is re-generated before
each level

-- The game code should be loaded at $13000. Call $13008 to run.
   Note that the game should be called in supervisor mode with interrupts
   off, this is all detailed in JMPBOOT.S


     Hope that's clear. Good luck !!


                 Yours Sincerely

                       John M Phillips

The new tetris (N64)

Quote:
********************START MARTIST RANT************************** I must say, this was a fun time coming down to San Francisco to do The New Tetris. Allthough there were a few problems. First of all being our producer.. D*N, my god.. is this guy useless or what?? I don't hate you D*N.. but you SUCK, and I mean SUCK as a producer. You should go back to testing video games, but I doubt you could even manage that properly. I feel sorry for you. During this project you just sat around and played video games.. starcraft and everquest. Don't even deny that.. when you WERE working, it was making stupid Excel (tm) spreadsheets to try and tell me how many bugs I had left to fix on a graph.. like WTF is that??? who cares.. I have the bug list in front of me, like I need to see it in freaking technicolor. So D*N, I must say this.. hold onto, and fake your job while you can, because once they find out how truely useless you are, you will be out of a job. I cannot think of any skillset you would fit into in this industry, so you better hold on tight. (This guy thought I could save a name in 8.4 BITS.. like umm.. .4 BITS?? WTF is .4 BITS?? its either ON or OFF, not in between... anyhow, Enough about you though. To Nintendo.. It has been nice working with you.. Alot of you are great or were great. Tom 'Snoop Dog' Hertzog - you were great.. one of the nicest people I have ever met at Nintendo. You and your crews bug testing was outstanding and I commend you for the excellent work. Erich Waas - You know we have been friends a long time, but I must say this. After you had accepted the ART form for The New Tetris, and later on your higher ups said it was not UNISEX enough, you slapped the blame on H2O, Chris Bretz in particular. You did not have the balls to accept blame for your mistake, and stuck our entire team under IMMENSE stress and FRENZY. This to save your A$$ from getting in trouble at Nintendo. I still like you Erich, which is more than I can say for the rest of the team that you screwed because of this. But I guess your standing at Nintendo is more important than the friendships you had here. You always knew we had telent and you recognized that. I know you wanted to work with us again one day maybe outside of Nintendo, I think you screwed up those chances though. While I am screaming.. I might as well say this: Niel Voss.. your music is freaking KICK A$$.. you are one really damn talented boy. BUT, you are one of the laziest music guys I think there is  You could go far if you wanted to, but you just lack the GO for it. It is a shame. I wish you all the luck and would reccomend you to ANYBODY just because even though everything is last minute, and like pulling teeth, the end result is AMAZING. I am leaving H2O after this project to work at 3DO. I hope this will be a good move for me. I love H2O, As amazingly disorganized of a company it is. I LOVE the people, I have so many good friends there. It will be hard to move on. Of course they will stay my friends. They were more than just co-workers.. they were FRIENDS. They were the people I lived with, spent my days and nights with.. went to bars with, camped with, drank with (alot), did other bad things with (wont elaborate ). They are true great friends, and I love them all and will miss them dearly. Allthough Vancouver is only a 2 hour flight away, I hope I can visit often. My best friends would include. Ross, Max, Scott, Jake, Bretz, Roland, Johnny, Sarah.. these are the people I love the most. And I wish you success. My 4.5 years at H2O were basically, making games.. drinking alot, playing pool alot, going to bars and raves and dancing while really screwed up in the head. THAT HAS TO BE THE MOST FUN I HAVE EVER HAD, and probably ever will. The good old days. These guys are in Vancouver right now because I got stuck finishing this project in San Francisco (Which by all means I LOVE and am staying (hence 3DO)) Well boys and girls, I just thought I would immortalize some thoughts I have at the moment into a rom which will be burned forever. This game sucks. The music is great but the game itself is not how we wanted it unfortunately. I mean, it is a good game, but some things could be polished, as well as sped up. Could use another month to finish this thing off AFTER all the bugs are fixed. oh well, woh is me. I would love to give special loves and kisses to the following. My Girlfriend Amy Bond, My Family (Joy, Allyson, Jon Pridie, Brant Sangster), My really really best old friends Selim Arikan, Cory Haberly, Jason Vasilash, Alfred Huger, Oliver Friedrichs. Goodbye H2O, it was a blast, and I mean that with all my heart. (C) 1999 July 1 David Pridie If you are reading this, you can obviously see this disclaimer. All this material belongs to David Pridie. If you find it and want to post it in ANY media format, you must get my permission or feel my wrath . This text if it is ever read, is intended to be read by hackers whom have dumped the contents of this rom and viewed it. That is ALL it is for. And maybe some of them will remember me from the C64 and PC days, Martial Artist of PE/TDT/RAZOR 1911/INC/FLT/TRN/FBR, I was in them all.. and I made trainers and intros mostly. I thank that scene for teaching me how to program, because without it I don't think I would be where I am today. Well that does it 4.5 years and Two games later (Tetrisphere and New Tetris).

DVDs have actually become MORE expensive than when they first came out.52] Nintendo and everything about them.53] Old people who clog up the sidewalk walking super slow when you want to get somewhere.54] Looking at demo-reels at work that are so incredibly bad, that I just vant to call them up and tell them to go f*ck their demo reel and to never EVER send another one out to anybody. EVER.55] Spiders. All spiders. Everyone of them.56] How on the Nintendo 64 game machine, half the damn titles for it are called 'miscvidgame 64'. Why not come up with a real name?

Super Gridrunner

Quote:
gridrunner
additional information:
firstly, thanks for buying this copy of gridrunner. that is, assuming you did buy it... if you ripped it off, I have the following message for you:
may the fleas of 1000 camels infest all your hairy bits forever; may your swonnicles become painfully enlarged, your system be infested with particularly virulent viruses, your teeth and hair drop out and all your interfacing be unsuccessful, for as long as you continue your verminous and destructive existence, you slimebag, you pool of festering scum, you talentless nerd.
anyway, i`m glad you have the game. i hope you enjoy the blasting.  if you enjoy this game (totally crass and naff advertising) try our other st release andes attack. if you`re into the `defender` style of game, andes attack will be right up your street.  the graphics are ok, but where the game really shines is in the gameplay department.  if you enjoyed this you`ll love it.
yak reviews the reviewers
i have been interested to see the various reviews for `andes attack` which have appeared just recently. i expected mixed reviews, and that`s what i got.  i hoped that reviews would fall into two distinct categories - written by those who value gameplay on the one hand, and those who are impressed only by flashy graphics on the other.  i was not disappointed.....

the review to which i attached the most significance was that by julian rignall in c&vg.  i`m not being sycophantic or anything like that; in fact as anyone who had a commodore a few years ago and read `zzap` will realise, me and j.r. haven`t always seen eye-to-eye.  nonetheless, i know that j.r. is a fan of williams arcade games, and in fact used to own a stargate machine.  as such, he would know whether andes attack, itself based on stargate, captured the essence of the classic williams game.  i am releived to say that he loved it...

atari user also liked the game, interestingly enough they also raved about the graphics as well as the gameplay.  now i`m obsessed with getting good gameplay into every game i write.  i`m not a graphic artist, and the rates they charge, i can`t afford to employ one.  nonetheless, i believe that the term `graphics` covers not only the individual pixels which define the game elements, but also the way they move.  the dynamics of andes attack graphics (the explosions especially) like the dynamics of the williams original, are especially pleasing.

of course, not all the reviews were good... i expected (correctly) that there would be a number of reviewers who judge a game purely on the strength of perceived graphics and totally ignore gameplay.  ace, for example, relegated the game to a small slot passed over in a distainful way (i guess because the game graphics, viewed statically in screenshots, aren`t spectacular enough) with hardly a mention of the gameplay. another, atari-specific magazine, proclaimed loudly that the gameplay was dated, and that even ten pounds was too much to pay for a `blast from the past`.  in one of those glorious examples of consistency unique to the fantasy world of the game reviewer, the very same reviewer a few pages later is seen extolling the virtues of a recent arcade conversion, based on an even more ancient idea than defender (involving large rocks and a spaceship). in this case, the reviewer has no qualms recommending that the reader pay twenty quid for the conversion. `but what about ten quid being too much for a blast from the past???` you ask....  well, if truth be told, it comes down to the fact that defender is hard, and asteroids is not so hard. our reviewer obviously never got to terms with defender, and so any defender-variant presented to him was bound to come out of the encounter badly.  mind you, in the same magazine, this reviewer was claiming that the control-method of `virus` was too difficult, and that `virus` itself had no lasting appeal....

i never heard so much tosh in my life. `virus` is the best shoot-em-up on the st, bar none, and recurs regularly like a bad case of glandular fever.  the thing which sets virus (and defender, and a lot of the williams games) apart is the fact that the enemies have autonomous intelligence. in modern games, like r-type and such, you have no freedom.  the scroll proceeds at a constant rate; the aliens appear from the same places at the same time.  you cannot choose to reverse your ship and fly wherever you want to; learning such a game is just a question of learning to be in a certain place at the right time and pumping the fire button.  the player has no choice.  in defender and virus, the player is given complete freedom to fly around a world occupied by enemies who have autonomous intelligence, discrete tasks to accomplish.  the response of the enemies is never identical on any two encounters, and the player must rely on wits, rather than rote learning of position, to succeed.

quite frankly, the art of good game design has been largely lost in these days of mega-graphics and pattern-oriented games.  r-type, nemesis, all these modern graphically-oriented games, are all just pattern-oriented scrollers with zero degrees of freedom and stupid opponents who fly the same flightpaths every time you play.  for all the graphics, such games are no more advanced in terms of game design than space invaders.  the defender design, when introduced, represented massive advances on gameplay- the first horizontally-scrolling playfield, the first scanner, the first intelligent opposition, the first smartbombs.... modern designs tend to give you power-up weapons and nothing else.  just scroll from one end of the game to the other, no degrees of freedom....

show me a reviewer who can score 100,000+ on defender and i will accept their criticism as valid. a lot of the guys working the review circuit these days weren`t around in the times when you couldn`t sell a game on the strength of pretty graphics because you just didn`t have the memory to implement them.  you relied on good game design to do the job.  i tell you, some of the guys around at the moment wouldn`t know a good game design from a twenty-quid graphics demo with zero gameplay and fifty thousand poundsworth of hype behind it.....

suffice to say, if you like defender, if you like virus, you will like andes attack, and should get it!

after all it is only a tenner (it amused me to see that, months after we released `andes` at a tenner, a certain large software hypecorporation was blowing its own trumpet over the fact that they finally reduced the price of their arcade conversions from twenty quid to fifteen... still 50 percent more than they should be)....

anyway, enough from me. i have some loud rock to listen to and an important pub to go to later, so get on with your blasting!

yak greets you and wishes you good luck with the conflict!

That Dynamite Dux code was something to do with the code "NUDE", But I can't remember how you set it off. I seem to recall you have to hold all four keys down though. :/

(Type "Cheat" on the title screen, That should do it. 1-6 selects level, and typing "nude" brings up the bonus screen)

I will post a screenshot at some point, Just for GG. Tongue

Bollocksed if I can get that kinky intro to appear now, Will work on it later, (Even if it means digging my old disk version out and pushing it through my STFM)
