the big work is done, but there is some details to do

rb+ has converted perfectly his long and wonderful music theme ( with C button ingame )

(this .abs file is optimized for skunkboard. with emulators, the tempo of music can be wrong)

Hi F.L.

 

Just wondering, are you "working" with Mr K. Hawken, a.k.a The Laird / Mr Kizza / LynxGod and his new alias "Epyx" ? As he is claiming your port is the basis for a release of Barbarian.

yes , i have been contacted by epyx to do a new version with new ehanced gfx of barbarian for jaguar.

they are using my opensource codes for doing the game on DC and megadrive too

i dont knew them before. i hope they are serious.

for the moment the work they are doing is serious and respect the original game. cool

anyway, i will follow little step by little step the port my old versions to jaguar 100% faithful to the 1987's originals.
if i found free time of course. this weekend, no time to finish c64 version, maybe next week !

i'm still learning rb+; each version make me mastering more it

for a next step, i think you are all waiting the st version, isn't it ? ;)

stay tuned :D

Wow. Posts just keep going missing in here....

 

FL, you should be warned about "Epyx" - Kieren Hawken / The Laird / LynxGod / Mr Kizza... he has a history of burning people. I'd suggest you do a forum search for him, or just generally ask in the main forum regarding his questionable background.

 

Also, you should know he was very vocal regarding the 'shitty version from aa' - referencing your work. I'm sure he'll spin you a different story, but he won't be able to substantiate any of it.

 

If you do decide to work with him, I remind you of the licensing and logo requirements for a release using RAPTOR and U235.

Since I didn't get through to everyone yet:

 

Last warning - keep the jaguar retarded dramaz away from this subforum. This is not the place to do this. PMs exist for a reason. I don't even care who's right or wrong. Just keep all this shit out of here.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

Hi F.L, two questions for you:

 

1) You published the source a while back - would you mind if I added it to the rb+ repository?

2) Did you use some sort of assembly->basic converter for the game logic? As a lot of it looks tool generated.

hello ggn

no problem, you can add my source. all my remakes are opensource :thumbsup:

yu can found all the sources and ressources of the differents versions on my little website :

http://barbarian.1987.free.fr/indexEN.htm

(all is in "download" . i must update it my the jaguar rom)

i dont use any tool/converter to make my code. i have started from a blank page in 2012 in basic with qb64.

it's always the same source that i have translated for many devices and many langagues ( basic > html5 > C , windows > megadrive > pcengine > jaguar )

my coding is a little strange because i have learn coding myself when i was teenager on my amstrad cpc 6128.

for example, i never use functions and i use too much IF...ELSE, GOTO and labels

but it works :D

if i found free time, i will make all the 7 versions of the game.

but at this moment , my job take me too much time. today i took a few hours to continue the c64 version

see ya !

Hello

Today is a great day for the remake of barbarian on jaguar ! :thumbsup:

I have finished the Atari ST version !

Everything is good working, i'm proud of this one because it's the most beautiful version of this game !

Here is the link to the rom :

https://www.dropbox.com/s/nqjg7mubpdani4p/barbarianATARIjaguar.zip?dl=0

For having the best speed of game and sfx, there is three roms in the zip :

One for cartridges

One for skunkboard

One for emulators

PT emulator is recommanded (included in the zip)

I hope you will enjoy to have this atari version on jaguar

See ya for the next version (amiga)

At this point all I could say is that you should consider teaming up with a graphic artist so you can create the ultimate version: better backgrounds, better sprites, more animation frames etc :)

Exactly what I was thinking GGN, if there's someone out there to tween those frames and make it super-slick, or if there's a remake somewhere with assets available, could be that the Jaguar might be blessed with the best one possible :)

Jaguar could easily use the graphics and music of "tdb soft" 2009 remake. I dont know if they are copyright.

When i will finish the 7 originals i could contact them to know if it's possible

If my evil schemes come into fruition, it won't be just the jaguar ;)

hello !

i have found free time to finish the amiga version :thumbsup:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2fXw8dImcI

it's the most coloured of the originals of 1988

i hope you will enjoy it

here is the link to dowload :

https://www.dropbox.com/s/gslm5dnmclfujkx/barbarianAMIGAjaguar.zip?dl=1

important : i have updated all the zip of the precedent links because windows had a warning when you download all files in one.

it was because of the .exe inside the folder (the emulator)

now, the emulator is inside a zip, so no more warning of windows :grin:

i recommand to always playing the roms with this emulator (PT.exe) because with virtualjaguar, the sfx are too quick and the game is too slow

now, 4/7 version are done.

the next will be the PC-CGA version in a few days (easy to do)

see ya !

Yes. You have 4 channels, and since your game doesn't have music, that means up to 4 sound effects at the same time.

The channel is the first number of the command line ?
