Very, very preliminary version, but you can start it and fly around...

 

The frame rate is very nice - this one is going to be fun! 68000 3D POWA!

Got the colours sorted out - 3 nice Timer B raster splits to emulate FUN FUN FUN!

 

Working on the control scheme now... think I've settled on:

 

; C - Select Weapon (Shift)
; B - Fire
; +UP - Faster
; +DW - Slower
; A - Tractor Beam On/off (T)
;
; 1 - Stardrive on/off (D)
; 2 - Identify Object under crosshairs (I)
; 3 - Audio Analysis of nearest object (A)
; 4 - Status Report ®
; 5 - Inventry Mode (I)
; 6 - Give Object (G)
; 7 - Rotate tractor object left (<)
; 8 - Pull tractor object (M)
; 9 - Rotate tractor object right (>)
; 0 - Collect tractor object ©
;
; PAUSE - Pause (Backspace)
; OPTION - Exit Inventry Mode (E)
; * - Jettison object (J)
; # - save game (F10)
; *+# - abort (ESC)
Had to dump all the viewport keys and stuff, not enough buttons!
I'll probably have the game check the MT for a save when it starts and ask if you want to load it. (Once I get save/load working, that is)

Not enough buttons for this one, but that's cool you are able to get it running on Jag regardless, also nice that it will be able to save to MT too once the .abs is put on a CD(right?) :)

Should be able to, yes. Just getting a working version ready at the moment.

Also, fixed up the raster splits so the colours are correct:

Off topic (then again, this is the Jag forum), but I never had an ST growing up, nor knew anyone that did, but I feel like I really missed out on some amazing games.

never mind was going to ask about two controllers, but someone beat me to it.

For me of course its the ST game conversion itself I'm more impressed with, although the box art is very nice! I have to still go through all of CJ's ST threads and make sure I haven't missed anything lol.

I'm sure there are reasons for this. 

I felt it didn't work well with DPAD so just shoved it aside. Also the YM sounds are not 'effect driven' - the game directly drives the registers on the chip to warble and pitch effects.

 

With mouse and new techniques neither are insurmountable these days, but after 6 years it would probably be better to just start again - and right now, no time or inclination for this one.

I really enjoy how this game looks, I went and got the dos version so I could check it out on my PC.  Man, the sounds in the dos version are terrible (pc speaker only, no main menu music), and the controls are very difficult to figure out without the manual!  I had to do some internet sleuthing in order to find out how to up the throttle, as this is the first 3d spaceship game I've ever played that didn't increase throttle with a single button (it involved holding the right mouse button while moving the mouse forward).  The draw distance makes it pretty difficult to engage enemy space pirates... nevertheless, considering this game came out in, what, 1988? 1989?  The graphics are mind blowing!
