Between Dbug and PPera there is a lot of joy to be had. Too much to go through for the most part, so nothing to complain about. My stock Falcon probably gets used the most, next would be the 130XE.

 

Was Star Wars a MAME/ROM port?

 

And where did you find the Skunkboard, Mr Leech?

Someone posted the link earlier in this very thread :)

Oh and I thought it was a ST port of Star Wars Arcade, with the sound/music ripped from the MAME rom?

Aha, cheers. My eyesight is going to crap. Can't even solder without glasses any more.

 

I was hoping we'd get a Streetfighter arcade ROM conversion. icon_biggrinwink.gif

Ha, just thinking this is a Port Inception. Port from Arcade to ST to Jaguar!

Any chance for "Dogs of War"? I loved that on Amiga, especially two player mode! :)

Just going to throw it out there again...

 

If Ports 2.5 ever comes out... I would really, really, really appreciate the possibility that this game makes it to the final result, with mouse support.

 

 

 

For the record, I don't understand what the point of the crying dude in the beginning is for. I just chalk that up to cheesy late 80s / early 90s nonsense.

It's setting up the games story, a prince watching his deceased father, the king being immolated at sea.

He's in mourning,cue the tear, and his mourning is rewarded by the gods. He is struck by lightning, which forms and serpent in hands, an emblem of his right to rule the world.

So yes,classic 80's cheese :-))

Never played Realms, kind of looks like an easier to play version of Power Monger.

Hahah... that's right, I think I knew this at some point and forgot. Does it say it on the back of the box or somewhere? Maybe it even said it in the intro and I was so oblivious I just totally missed it.

It's a pretty decent game. I would say it's not complicated, and as far as strategy games go... it's pretty simplistic. Basically, you start off with a city. You can improve it by buying a few buildings which allow you to produce more (usual thing). You levy taxes, and have a basic concept of keeping them happy. Like... 1/10th what you'd have to deal with in Sim City. You also then have to conquer other lands and other cities. You win when all the land is under your control. The territory can change too... I think there's a few options.

 

It's similar to Warlords for the PC, but perhaps a bit more in-depth, and with no heroes, and no mini-quests.

Yup, you can stop throwing it out there again and again now ;)

I had a look, it'd be possible, but it is a fairly complicated game to port and I don't have the time now or in the near future to put into it (Plus, err.. Populous looks much better)

Monkey Island came out for the ST?

I didn't even realize Ghosts and Goblins came out for it.

Elite had the home conversion rights for Ghosts n Goblins, but it took something like 3 years for it to arrive on the ST.

Somewhat ironically, US Gold had released Ghouls N Ghosts on the ST a few months before Elite finally released Ghosts n Goblins, so Elite's efforts looked dated in comparison.

Haha, yeah there weren't even all that many hard drive runnable games until the last few years of 'life'. Seemed for some reason the ST developers, after the initial years that it was in the lead of the Amiga, just did mostly lazy ports and most were not big enough to warrant even making them work from a hard drive.

It would be difficult for me to even think of some games that were not solely playable from disk, until patched many years later.

When I was into the Atari ST "back in the day", not many people had hard drives.  I eventually got one, I think maybe a Supra Drive.  I now have a Mega ST and a Megafile drive, but I've never hooked them up.  :D  But hard drives weren't that common here in the US for people who had STs, except for the more hardcore enthusiasts who could outlay the cash for one.

I suppose he meant "multi-floppy games".
But even if it's possible, a point-and-click game like Monkey Island is not very fun to play without a mouse, so it would only appeal to people who have the mouse adapter.
