Blast from the past: Bard's Tale III

Recommended Posts

Reading through the Wizardry conversion thread reminded me that once upon a time, I was determined to do a conversion of Bard's Tale I-III to the A8 (why didn't we get one? Oh yeah, it was from EA when they decided they didn't want to do any more Atari conversions :P). I did have a C64 at the time, but playing it on the C64 was an exercise in pain. It was slow, slow, slow. The disk access, that is.

 

At any rate, after transferring the disks over to my A8 via null modem and custom software on both ends, I managed to get the splash screen going but that's about it. Let's just say that at that point, life got in the way as it is wont to do. ;)

 

So here it is, a bit of nostalgia; an echo of what might have been. :)

Nice job. If I didn't have to live in the real world, I'd crank out A8 conversions night and day. It would be great to produce the stuff we never got and do it to the highest standards.

Bard's Tale III didn't make it to the Apple IIgs either even though it was mostly finished from what I hear. Thankfully the Apple IIe got all three (which is what I grew up with).

That's excellent, I think you're selling it a bit short with the description "splash screen" though ;-)

I forgot to mention that this requires an XL/XE. My most sincere apologies to all of you stuck with a 400/800. ;)
