Just purchased both and looking forward to them arriving in the UK - will be a nice Christmas present to myself - thought i would get them while you still have plenty in stock as I know people are still chasing 'Another World' after the limited run (400 in total I think) that was done on that one by RGC... So anyone on the fence about buying these I would recommend getting them as you will constantly read on here about people chasing after copies of Another World, and I think Defender of the Crown in particular might prove similar once they are all gone... You can pop the commission money in my paypal account Albert for the 'scared' surge of buying you may now see lol

Me too! I'm looking forward to the new Dizzy games. Hopefully they will have the save/load function.

It isn't really needed the other games in the series have lives.

Has anyone been able to beat Defender of The Crown on Jaguar? 

 

I lost a battle with 24 soldiers vs. 2 soldiers for opponent. 

 

Another battle I had 20 people vs. 0 and I lost 1 soldier in the battle.

A Saxon attached my home castle without even having an adjacent piece of land.  Something is wrong with this version of the game.

No, they do that.

 Another battle I had 20 people vs. 0 and I lost 1 soldier in the battle.


That is a feature of all versions of the game.

Johnny accidently took a plunge down the cliffside, not the game's fault.

Is Jaguar Defender of the Crown based on Amiga or Atari ST of the game?

 

How does one win at joust?

 

Raid (sword fight), I win, but it's slow, perhaps there is a faster method?  I block, then wait for the enemy to raise their non-sword hand twice then I strike and then go back to block. Repeat until you win.  The movement of the swordsmen left and right is so slow, but perhaps that is how it is on the original platform this was written for as well.

The ST version.  You unseat the other rider without killing his horse.

 Do you need to press button for joust or just aim?

 

I'm going to try the Amiga hint here next:

Screen shot below only happened once so far.  Anyone notice this during testing?

Not in several hundred hours testing, no.

 

I'd suspect you have one of the following.

 

1) dirty contacts on the cart

2) dirty contacts on the jag

3) a bad cart

 

Give it a clean and see if it happens again, if it does PM Albert.

Played about DotC around 50 times and only got that screen once. 

 

Beat game with all 4 Saxons.  Rules are slightly different than C64 version which is what I was use to, given that the game is still fun.  I don't think I'll ever figure out joust in this version, but no matter, one can win without that.

It took a while to work out joust, but I'm about 50% victory now :)

 

Winning is a lot easier if you start with 4095 Gold ;)

I had an interesting one today.  My army lost all soldiers while trying to take some land, I attacked the open land from another Saxon's castle.  So anyway, my army returned back to that Saxon castle, not my home castle.  From there I tried to return home but could not move due having zero soldiers, then I tried to transfer but not being at my home castle I could not transfer.

Game is very good even if it has a blemish or two.  Gives the game character :)  For $70 its well worth the purchase price.
