There is a similar thread on www.bitfellas.org, but since their forum is only visible through registration, I'll post what I've posted there right here.

Right, that (to quote my Line Of Fire Startup-Sequence) is that over with!








********************************************************************************
*
*You May Not Read Further If You Are Under 14 or Have A Datel Action Replay Mk.I*
*(The Mk.II one's ok cos the software's much better)*****************************
*****************************************************








Yes kids, It's *PROGRAMMER'S EGO* time!








Other games I've written: (the list gets longer!)
Double Dragon I (Amiga,ST,Amstrad CPC)
Double Dragon II (Amiga,ST,Amstrad) (Aargh! Endless beat-em-ups!)
Shinobi (Amstrad)
Block Racer (Amiga,ST)
ESWAT (Spectrum!)
Line Of Fire (Amiga,ST)
Rotox (Amiga,ST)
Fly Spy (Amstrad)
The Islands of Dr.Destructo (64)
U.C.M. (64) (barf)

Utilities,etc:
Zap (Amiga)
Cyclone (Amiga)
TimeWarp turbo loader (Amstrad)
Invade-a-load (64)
+various other bits'n'pieces & in-house stuff.


Right, that's the programography over with, now the customary rubbish that
I sometimes put in the startup-sequence to amuse you pirates before you get
down to the 5-minute job of cracking the game (see also Line of Fire!)

Incidentally, I gave up protecting games seriously after I spent a week
doing the protection for Shinobi and Double Dragon II on the Amiga, which
was (and I say so myself), pretty bloody good.. even if Weetabix did
eventually crack DD2 (by the way, I never did find out how long it took
you!)

The way I look at it, the better the protection, the greater the challenge,
and although it would be fun if protection could adapt itself to what the
cracker is doing (like a game of chess), as it is the whole game is a bit
one-sided. I mean, whatever I do for protection, once I've done it, it's
cast in stone, and as it is impossible to cover every one of the bizarre
things you lot will try, eventually a game will get cracked, so why bother
in the first place? I don't agree with piracy, but as in-game protection
is just providing you lot with some amusement over a boring weekend, I
don't bother much any more..

I daresay some people still think that it's possible to do 'pirate-proof'
protection, but personally, after DD2 (which really did have some bloody
neat ideas in it), I don't!

Another problem is that when I do a really neat disk format, that, say,
gives you 6.5k a track and is well hard to copy, the *$#?**!ing duplicators
can't duplicate it! Kind of defeats the object really!


Any road up, on this game I'm reasonably pleased with the interrupt-driven
disk loader; everyone else did it ages ago - so did I, but that sort of
loading is not really suitable for most types of games: you need dynamic
memory-allocation and multi-tasking uncrunch routines for a start, and then
you run into all sorts of problems with ram fragmentation, and eventually
you end up spending more time sorting out the problems caused by the system
than it solves, but I thought I might as well use it in Final Fight, just
so that Ronald McDonald at the Sales Curve would shut up! (Sorry Ronald!)

Oh yeah.. the real-time x/y-flipping and decompressing sprite-routine is
alright too.. but a tad slow. Ah well, the Line of Fire real-time scaling
sprite routine was slightly neat as well, and look how slow that game was!

The main problem with this game is the amount of time & memory used up by
all the massive sprites.. I ripped all the graphics out of the arcade
board's roms, and I really didn't want to have to shrink them or anything,
so we end up with what you see here.. bloody huge sprites!



Tum te tum.. what next..? I know! It's..

The arcade machine's specs:

(The standard CapCom board- as used on everything from Ghouls'n'Ghosts
to Strider and Dynasty Wars)

68000 running at about 10Mhz
Z80 driving the sound chip (standard Yamaha 6-voice FM chip) and sample-
playback hardware
1.5Mb of program and data roms (aargh!)
2Mb of sprite & character graphic roms (double aargh!) - there's space on the
board for 16Mb!
256k of sample/music rom
Triple playfield screen, with a rather interesting method of displaying
data (see later)
Loads of 128x128 hardware sprites with hardware X & Y flipping (bog standard)
64k of video ram
64k of processor ram

The screen displays are quite interesting.. the 3 overlayed playfields are
made up differently.. but they are all character-mapped, not bitmapped.
Naturally they all have independant hardware scroll! There's also no
practical limit on the number of characters you can access at any one time
with a screen - all the character map screens use 16-bit character numbers!

Playfield 1:
The back parallax layer consists of 32x32 character blocks, with each block
having a selectable pallette (of 16 colours) from a set of 32 different
pallettes.. (that's up to 512 colours on this screen alone!)
Playfield 2:
The main playing area.. Uses 16x16 character blocks, each with a 16 colour
pallette selected from another bank of 32!
Playfield 3:
The top layer for scores, text,etc. Uses 8x8 characters, 16 colours, from
yet another bank of 16 pallettes.

All characters can be individually X and Y flipped, and the playfield 2
characters can be set to appear in front of or behind (or both) any
sprites!

Each sprite is up to 128x128 pixels, and is character mapped too! Only 16
colours in any one sprite, but the sprite pallette is selected from yet
another set of 32 different ones! Naturally, the sprite can be flipped in
either direction by just setting a bit! I don't know how many sprites you
get, but I suspect 64!

Right, so that give you a grand total of 1280 colours on screen, not
counting the sprites, without even using raster-splits! Don't you just
want to BURN your amiga?

Can you believe what you could do with this board? EVERYTHING is done in
hardware, and you've got a 10Mhz 68000 just do change a few registers with!
It doesn't even have to drive the sound chip.. the Z80 does that!

(This board is considered to be old technology and is not really used by
Capcom much any more!!)



...Can I have one for Christmas, Santa?


If you think that's good.. you should have seen the hardware on Line Of
Fire that I converted before! Two 12Mhz 68000s and a Z80 all
co-processing!

Oh yeah, if any other companies want to hire me to extract graphics and
data from arcade boards they're converting, get in touch..




Ah well, back to the real world..


(Short bit about me, 'cos *I* wrote this game and *I* feel like it!) :-]

I'm 21, tall, and with boundless enthusiasm (and far less talent) for music,
playing pool and drinking alcohol.
.. oh yeah.. I'm half Australian too (not that that helps!)


Written in my slum at our Bristol office, on a meagre:
A500 with 2.5mb, A590, Cygnus ED, Genim2 and DPaint3 (ArgAsm's bugged to hell!)
A500 with 1mb (to download to)
Poxy 1040ST in the corner covered in junk
Comfy chair (noooooobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!)
Loud stereo & millions of albums
Video Walkman (+ all of BlackAdder II/III/IV & the Young Ones)
GameBoy (with Tetris superglued into it)
U.S. Robotics HST 9600 baud modem (for rapping with the artists in Whitby!)
Final Fight board (connected to crappy joystick and Commodore monitor!)
Some custom rom-reading hardware
Filter coffee machine, Microwave and endless copies of The Independant.
..That's it! No PDS, no SNASM, no nothing! C'est la vie!

For light relief at my flat, I've wasted huge amounts of money on;
Amiga A1000+2mb etc,etc
Casio FZ1 sampler
Roland D110 synth
Korg M1R synth
Cheetah MS6 analogue synth (and MkV II keyboard gathering dust)
Alesis Quadraverb digital effects processor (hours of fun!)
Alesis SR16 drum machine
Yamaha TX7 synth
Desktech 8-Channel mixer (now redundant)
Fender Strat (cheapo clone) guitar
CryBaby WahWah pedal (so I can sound like all the other crappy Manchester bands!)
A couple of el cheapo distortion/compression pedals
Fostex B16 16-track reel-to-reel tape recorder (wooo!)
SoundTracks 16:8:16 mixer (double woo!)
Yamaha FSK sync converter (crappy - not even SMPTE compatible!)
...and no, you can't come round and burgle me!

Actually, the CDTV has just come out, and does look rather sexy (I saw a
preview at the Software Developer's Conf. in Bournemouth a while back, and
it was well impressive) - maybe that's next on the 'expensive toys' list..?

...and thingy (your name's slipped my mind - you know who you are!)
.....and finally, all the various crowd I know from parties, shows,etc,etc!

Dubious substances (and late-night parties) supplied by JW Inc!

Ha ha! Neil Tennant's going GREY! I've just seen an interview in NME, and
he is looking a tad oldish - never mind, amazing music nonetheless. I'm
seeing the PSBs live at the NEC soon, and if this game is still under
development then, I'll give you an update.

* (- 11th June - Yep! Saw them last monday in Birmingham!
Were they good? - Is the Pope Catholic? The best live show I've ever seen!)

Hey! I've just been mugged! (21st May) Some b**tard came up behind me
when I was coming home from a club last night and hit me over the head
bloody hard with something - I don't know what, I was do busy being knocked
unconcious. I woke up in the gutter some time later, in a pool of blood (mine)
with some nice police lady calling me an ambulance (I don't know why, my name
is Richard, after all - ho ho ho). After about 6 stiches in my head courtesy of
the Bristol Royal Infirmary (and a tetanus jab), all I have to show for my
night of fun is a small bald patch with blue stiches in on the back of my
head, and the most amazingly coloured bruises you have ever seen. Who
says you can't have fun in Bristol any more? Anyway, thanks to the nice
police woman and the staff of the B.R.I. in casualty that
night, and no bloody thanks at all to whoever hit me!


Oh yeah - Hi to all the plebs who crowd into the Virgin Games Centre in
Bristol every Saturday morning and consistently refuse to recognise me
or Tim, even when we talk loudly about all the games we have written!!!!
- hellos also to the regulars at the White Hart (+nice student barmaid)
and Sportsman pubs in Bristol!


Ah well, it looks like I'll be doing some Super Famicon, MegaDrive, or
Master System work now, if our SNASM system ever turns up!!

By the way, hope you like the cheat mode! (very silly)

See you on the next one! Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Luv and Irony,
Richard Aplin.


P.S. All you young and impressionable people who think programmers make
loads of money.. well, most of us don't! (Mind you, the hours are good!)

P.P.S. Good Startup-Sequence eh?

P.P.P.S. Update: My next game(s) are: 'GodFather III' (U.S. Gold)
and 'Creatures' (Thalamus) on 68000!

Type 'Fenny' (shift+f) while palying the tunnel sequence in Interphase and you get an interactive hidden screen with a slideshow of all 3D objects and the following text:

Quote:
CONGRATULATIONS

You have found a totally pointless bit of Interphase.

There now follows a selection of some of the objects in this game.  I hope you enjoy them.

While I'm here, I'd like to thank:
Dean Lester, Danny Emmett, Simon Knight, Martin Day, John Cook, Mark Coleman, John Dale, and Realtime Games.

Fenny, by the way, is my cat.

3D Pool

Maltese Joe plays 3D-Pool.  Designed & Programmed by Orlando  (lucky geezer, eh?) 
I know this should be a scrolling message, but, well, times are hard. Please don't pirate this game - my last three games bombead out and I'm on the breadline, paying off debts. "Millionaire whizz coder prangs Porsche" - HA!
no chance of that! I don't even own a pushbike, let alone a car. This is my first 16-bit game: if you rip it off, it'll be my
last. For what it's worth though, I hope you really enjoy the game - I've been working on it for a year now, and I still love it.
Before I disappear, some quick 'thank you'sύ.r Thanks to Colin Fuidge, and Joe 'Big Q' Bonar for all their support and encouragement during gestation (I s'pose).
Also, ta Gary Liddon for his 'specialist' knowledge (without him the world would be an emptier place). Generally, thanks to all at TelecomSoft (as was) - it's the end of an era, folks. Thanks to MicroProse - let's take it from here.
Biggest thanks goes to a certain small furry animal. (I'll see you laterώ)e Many thanks to all the people who shelled out money for this - you're the people this is really for.
Stop reading this! go back and play the game!!
There is no cheat-mode!!

To protect a program using a Copylock Key Disk:

1. INCBIN the binary file KEYDISK.OBJ, or INCLUDE the source file KEYDISK.S

   into the program code to be protected. When called from supervisor mode

   the serial number of the Key Disk will be returned in register D0.L and

   in the trace vector, address $00000024.

2. Copy all files onto the Key Disk, using the normal file copy method.

   If specific sectors of the Key Disk are to be written to do not over-

   write any sectors on track 0, with the exception of the boot sector.

   Do not re-format any of the tracks, doing so would render the disk

   useless as a Key Disk.

*-------------------------------------------------------------------------*


filename: KEYDISK.OBJ

filetype: relocatable 68000 binary code. It contains no header, relocation

          or symbol information.

purpose:

To check for the presence of a Key Disk and return the Key Disk's serial

number. The Key Disk is assumed to be in drive A:. The file can be included

in the assembly of source code files. Use the directive INCBIN, when

assembling with HiSoft's DEVPAC. The code should not be called as a sub-

routine, as no RTS is performed on exit.

Usage:

on entry,
     
     DISK DRIVE HEAD MUST BE OVER TRACK 0

     processor must be in supervisor mode

on exit,

        d0.l contains the 32 bit serial number of the Key Disk

        d0.l returns 0 if no Key Disk is found.

        all other registers preserved

Example
-------

* must be in supervisor mode
     INCBIN      keydisk.obj            returns serial no. in d0.l
     move.l      d0,serialno            .. or 0 if not a Key Disk
* rest of program


After calling the code, program control continues at the address after the

binary code. An RTS is not performed. The code may be called as often as

required.

Welcome to Wayne's wonderful world of protection, how far can YOU get? This sector is pretty tame, its only text! It may still be of some significance though... who knows? Any of you into paintballing? If so, get in touch (address in sector 1), I'd love to shoot a few hackers! The site (Transcan) is near York, you have to be over 18. Finally, if you must hack this game, knock it out as a demo by only leaving a couple of levels in it, don't steal from me 'cos I can't afford it!    GOOD LUCK! - Wayne Smiley

HI TO MARK (GUIDO!), NEIL, OZZ, DMA, P.P. (DON'T RIP!)

WJS DESIGN, PARK MILL HOUSE, STANNINGLEY ROAD, LEEDS, LS12 3LR.      BOG OFF!

Hello, are you looking at this with a sector editor? If so, does it make any sense to you?... I thought not!!!

Favourite things: Harpo's Pizza, Cartoons (especially Road Runner), Steve Wright in the afternoon, Ferraris, Loud music, Coffee, Paintballing, Cinema, Computers (nah!), Hi-tec gadgets, Black Adder, The Jeans ad with the dog guarding them on the beach (burble burble). 

I've got a long green Phantom (on 0898....)

sussed yet? And when you have, what happens next? You'll have to re-write my loaders for a start, I use a 12x 510 byte sector format on some tracks! HAVE FUN!

Hi to Richard, Paul, and everyone else at the Leeds 16 bit club. Also to The Lost Boys who I met at last years PC Show, don't stick this on one of your menus guys!.... A WELL DONE to ST Action for bungling the ANARCHY/IT CANT BE DONE demo! (just kidding Jason!).

The Transcan Barbarians paintball team are here.....    GOD, DOING SECTORS IS BORING, BORING, BORING!    LUFC, going up!

Death Trap

Quote:
Hello Pirates, we all know you're going to crack this game, but it is so easy for you to hold it one or two months and it is so hard for me to to make sure you won't crack it that I thought you could hold it for me... Even better, as you might think i'm earning an awful lot of money on this game, you could hold it for the game itself.I think you surely recognise it is not the worst you've seen on st, and you should know it is an AMIGA port done in 3 WEEKS, where EVERYTHING is EMULATED from AMIGA (SoundFx,Maincode,Music).But as I Know you you will only laugh stupidly and say : We're gonna crack it anyway, because we owe you nothing... I know, but remember that one day you WILL write a game (because if you can crack it, it means that you surely can code 68000) like me and put all your hopes in it and see it cracked by a bunch of jerks like I was when I was younger... Then you'll remember this message. But that day, we will swap our roles.Signed : LORD BLITTER (Mr byte killer) ----------------Pour les francais, apprenez l'anglais et lisez plus haut C'est pas si dur, vous verrez...----------------

                                                   Tel: 07-555-3392

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.

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). Unfortunately I wont be working on Nomans Quest.. but oh well. HAPPY CANADA DAY. *****************************END MARTIAL ARTIST RANT ********************

Thats like calling your computers keyboard a 'feature'. Lame a$$ marketing people.51] DVD manufactureres that sell their DVDs for $40 and up, just because they know people will pay for it. 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? Why is everyone just slapping a 64 on all the games?************************************END LUPIN RANT************************

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)
