Preppie!, Preppie! 2, Sea Dragon source code!

Recommended Posts

From Russ Wetmore to me to you

 

Source code is attached and at https://archive.org/details/@savetz?and[]=russ%20wetmore

 

All the disks were 100% readable.

 

Here's my interview with Russ:

In the interview, he mentioned that there are some easter eggs in the games, something involving putting paddle controllers in ports 3 and 4. I don't know if those cheats are generally known. He could not remember the details but . . . we've got the source now.

 

Happy new year,

Kevin

Cool.

 

I seem to remember there was a cheat for Sea Dragon involving controllers in port 3 and/or 4, so would only work on 400/800.

Fairly sure it allowed you to start on any level.

We really appreciate your help for the community. Will add this to the atariwiki, too.

 

Thanks again Kevin, another big hit! I really liked Sea Dragon in the 80's, was a little hard to play, but I could finish it.

 

What a start in the new year. Many things will follow. :-)

Really enjoyed the podcast Kevin and you may just have spurred Russ in to writing for the Atari (even as fun) which is great to hear..

 

What is he doing these days?

Cool interview. I did not realize that Russ was the one that gave 3 bucks to some kid that pirated his game. For some reason I was thinking it was the author of Rainbow walker.

 

Was looking back through your archives trying to find the podcast for the author of action and I noticed a nice little link to atarixlbox for the xbox. That was kind of cool to see. I'm the maintainer of that port and it was fun watching back over that old youtube video I made. :lol: More recent versions of atarixlbox can be picked up at my usual hangout emuxtras.

Did he give you the source code for Sea Dragon for the TRS-80 as well as other systems? I hope we weren't only Atari focused.

 

I'm an idiot. I, for some reason, thought Russ was involved in those other ports. My bad.

I asked him anyway.

 

"Hey, Kevin. I don’t think so, but I’ll look. I think I have some hard copy of some stuff I wrote, but the disks would have been long gone by the time I got around to the Atari. I’ll let you know."

Thx Kevin! Any chance to save a piece of this history is worth asking for. Besides, getting access to the source could help others make games of their own.

This is fantastic! I love to look at how these games were made. Thank you Russ and Savetz.

I took a look at the Preppie source code. Disk 1 compiles fine and is what looks like an early demo version of the game. Was there a mistake with Preppie disks 2 and 3? They have identical source code that looks like it is in the process of having features added to it, but it's incomplete and is missing quite a few definitions.
