hello !

 

Dr Floyd from French Homebrewer Dr Floyd :) Here is my new freeware game !

Cosmos: The Secret Melody is a sci-fi role-playing RPG (PC Windows) tribute to the precursor of modern RPG, Ultima (Richard GARRIOTT), but also to the cult-science early 80's: Elite (David Braben), Star Flight and especially Sundog (Bruce Webster). It is completely freeware. It was designed for fun, and to be shared

The game is an hardcore Ultima/Starflight/Frontier (when it comes to the size of its universe) type of game. You only have one save and can't go back to change some of your choices. Like in real life.

Well at least the main menu is already in english, c'est déjà ça de fait ! ;)

Good luck with the translation. Looks like Richard Garriot is waiting for it. ;-)

I would like to see this guy get in touch with Philip Price to code a new version for the Atari. Maybe they could code a new Alternate Reality for both the PC and Atari.

 

 

Edit: If you edit your Dropbox link to say dl=1 at the end, then it will be almost like a direct link to the file. There are other ways as well to make it a real direct link to the file. this requires changing it to dropboxusercontent.com/s/[dropbox code] ONLY. Take everything off the end after the filename. No ?dl= stuff at all.

 

I use this in my Filelinked Android app store. That is how I display the icons. Code: 61177517.

 

:)

Is this compiled to run under XP32? I am getting error in MSVCRT.DLL when I try to run it.

 

Please fix.

 

Thanks
