I'm sorry but neither myself or starwindz are still attached to the project, starwindz who is the programming genius behind the gamepack is an incredibly busy guy in South Korea with an very demanding job so its unlikely there will be any updates in the future.

 

Sorry...You may want to look at the Gamebases forum incase anyone has ported them..

 

http://www.gamebase64.com/

 

There's also a much bigger Windows based gamebase which covers a huge number of titles

 

https://mega.nz/#F!l...dt2M24DZLMnD0Tg

 

Mega has a 4-6 gig at one time limit, so you can either if you have a floating IP reconnect your internet connection and return with a new IP or just wait 4 hours and return..

 

Its a wonderful gamebase with a hell of a lot of hard work in it, obviously ours is better ;)

 

Seriously Mark the guy who made it is a friend and I've helped a tiny bit bit on his (and I do mean tiny), he's put 112- 15 years into maintaining it, if you 

 

There's also a small update with a hundred plus new games and extras her

 

http://www.datafilehost.com/d/18fd4722

 

Have fun,

 

Paul

 

Oh, just incase, if your games are in the gamebase and you want them out just let me know..

Just get a lockup on Wine on MacOS X.The initial dialog box does come up and says I have three options which are Update & Start Game pack, Cancel and Official Forum. When I select Update & Start Game Pack I just get a sand timer and it locks.

I'm sorry but the programmer no longer updates the program and rarely ever visits the forums due to a very  very busy job.

 

I wish I could help but he was the brains, I did all the Altirra related stuff..

 

Just thought of one possible fix..

 

Go to gamepack\ini\baseinforall.ini and delete that ini file, re run the gamepack exe and it will rebuild that ini file and hopefully work?

I wen't ahead and disconnected my internet connection. It got past the update dialog but then it crashes on the Mac. I tried the same thing on an old Windows XP laptop and it did the same lockup when trying to update. I suspect my firewall is blocking and the app can not handle that gracefully? With no internet connection on the XP box, I got the program to come up and run.It is a shame the program is not being updated, you can see it is a real labor of love.

It was but life for me and Starwindz changed in very different ways, we both became very busy for reason mentioned in the thread...

 

There's also a thing called Gamebase Atari by Mark Hardnman which is a bigger thing with all sorts of titles on it where ours was a best of.

There's a post from me about 5 previous to this with much more details..

Its a mistake in many ways, its actually a hack that had not been removed at that point, the plan was for me to go through the whole item when it got to a point and preen the hacks out of it, some of the stuff was added before I'd had a chance to explore it all so the odd hack made it in...

 

I've added the disk just so you can have a look but its nothing official and certainly NOT Mr Robot 3..

 

Be aware that sometimes over the course of many computers the hackers created new screens and modified versions of man games and they got named as if they were real follow ups when they were hacks..

 

See Sidewinder 2, its nothing to do with the game Sidewinder or the team involved but its out there and we look at it in the way of, better to have than not :)

 

So...its NOT MR Robot 3......ever...never, ever....

Hi tane, you would be better to move this announcement to the main forum as the Gampepack is now defunct, neither of us can maintain it now so its been shutdown a while now....(There are things like the Gamebase that still get worked on by Hardnman with torrent links etc out there, if you search my posts you will see the last gamebase links for his one in here and I think they still work.

 

Also, its great to see new levels, who is doing this, you, is there a sate to go to a mani forum where its maintained, it would be worth adding any of this info in the thread I suggest you make and if there's no main site then use the thread as a place people can find any updates..

 

They will be very welcomed..

 

Paul..

 

Just had a play, the second screen you can get to with the climbable rope allows you to enter into the score panel and basically get stuck which leads to a crash when the lives run out....Just a test?

 

Are you using a custom editor?

 

MODS, move if possible to main forum..

 

Cheers, Paul..

All the information and link are in the video comments. It seems that at this time is a promising demo.

Yes, looks nice but they will have to remove the bits where you can crash the game or it will lead to it getting called all sorts of not so nice names...As a demo, really promising....A new set of levels would be amazing as long as half way through you cannot get terribly stuck :)
