Got this far quite quickly...

This took far more work than I thought it would...

But then here was just a case of killing a few interupts...

 

g2-c.png

 

Which lead to this....

And then it was just working out the acia interupt to get to this...

Don't ask for 4 player support. I don't own a team tap.

Oh man CJ, what a sweet surprise this could be as its a really cool and fun game to try to get running on the Jag. A Very nice choice man!!! I think everybody likes Guantlet II, I used to play the coin-op in the eighties a lot at a local bowling alley. If you can get this running, it would be amazing, and bring back a lot of fond memories, and for some reason, that I can't quite define - playing it on the Jag would just be reaaally cool. You don't have to share anything with us, but I'm sure glad when you do. Thanks for showing us your work here.

Thanks, Oval ;)

 

It's already running.  I've just got to fix up the sample player and it should be good to go.  I played a few levels earlier, seems pretty stable.

Were you able to support 2 player?

 

Nice work - this is a great game on any platform.

If someone (possibly me) were to send you one, would you be open to adding 4P support?  It would be worth the trouble for sure. 4P Gauntlet is where its at!!

Oooh, talk about an Atari killer app...

 

I can lend you my team tap as long as everyone can wait the 1.5 years for shipping.

Wow! Not there is a big surprise and very much welcome too.  Was a great multiplayer game but as a single player game not so much.

Well, just to show this isn't a wind up.

 

This one is a bit of a bitch to patch up, there are literally hundreds of changes needed. Might have been easier to re-write it :P

 

Just some notes on this so far...

  • Initial release for testing
  • Only partial sound effects working
  • Only single player working
  • Strip of graphics down the left of the screen is the wrong colour
  • Cannot yet use magic (Keyboard intercept not enabled)
  • 'Conjuring a character' screen not displaying 

Anyway... have fun ;)

 

to be updated... when I update it.

Based on the overwhelming response from the 7 people who downloaded this, here's an update:

  • Most sound effects working.
  • Welcome [red/green/blue/yellow] [wizard/elf/valkyrie/warrior] working!
  • Exit level chime working.
  • Treasure room music working.
  • MAGIC keys working! (DIE Death, DIE!)  [button c]
  • Oh yeah, Player 2 working.
  • Fixed the scrolling in single player. (the game thought 4 players were on screen so wasn't centering around Player 1)
  • Conjuring a character screen displaying. (needs more work)
  • Fixed the strip of GFX down left edge (This is hidden on the ST by the border colour=col0, on the Jaguar, border is a different register)

Still a bit of work left to do, but it's mostly done now. Many thanks to SCPCD for speeding up the screen conversion routine again!

What's needed to speed up slow skunkboard connections again? USB hub? PCI card with usb connectors?

Gauntlet on Jaguar? Somebody pinch me I must be dreaming!!

 

Not that any was solicited, but here is a little feedback-

 

-Sound a bit scratchy in places

-Would love 4P eventually, Gauntlet rocks in 2-4p and the Jag doesn't have enough games that are 4p

-Anyway to get rid of the border for full screen? (I'm stretching here...)

 

These are MINOR issues, all in all i'm happy as a clam right now.  Have this in flash slot one, Rick D in flash slot two, its going to be a long night!

 

THANK YOU
