Awesome, I thought this was just gonna stay a demo but I'm thrilled you actually competed a game with it.

Looks extremely nice. I just have to figure out which of the three controls is the best option for me. Have to get used to it, it´s a bit tricky. But plays very smooth.

Wow... massive hi-res sprites, and tons of color. Looks like an Amiga, ST, or VBXE game. Nice job!

 

Edit: I just took a screenshot of the first level; it's 50 colors. And just so people don't think most of it's in the background "rainbow"; I removed the background, and the color count is still 34!

if it isn't NTSC I can't comment, it doesn't exist for my Atari.. The posted pictures and videos look great though

Excellent - can't wait to test this.  I remember seeing the original demo videos, thought it was for VBXE.

 

OK - been trying to find the download link for the past 10 minutes now.  Online page translation is not working for anything I try.

 

LOL - found it.  "stąd."

For some reason, I feel like the jump doesn't respect the law of gravity 1:1.

But it´s totally normal to change the direction instantly inflight. :)

Another request for NTSC version. (While your at it, fix Crownland for NTSC ;P ).

Awesome job, looks great.

Funny thing is, in the case of bomb jack, it's just the end of game screen... just a couple lines to big? vbi too great?  that's usually what that looks like on screen for those issues..

Pang works..

you lose some sound or something... it would require a less cpu intensive playing routine... we may have that today... or a re distribution of the code..  but I play PANG and Bomb Jack just fine. with those adjustments..

Not sure what you mean here. Bomb Jack fails on NTSC.

are there duplicate games and I know them wrong? Pang works I tell you.. Unless it did and then it got broke for final release? Why don't you toggle some sounds like I said?

As I don’t follow much Atari scene for 2 years I first thought it’s VBXE… hehe… kudos.

Don't tell my Atari that

 

I don't know anything about your specific Atari; but it's a known issue for both of these games that they will not run properly on an NTSC Atari with only memory upgraded.

Early versions (pre-release, demo) of Pang worked on NTSC. The final version does not.

I ran it without issue on an NTSC 320XE by toggling sounds... Plays just fine everything else is stock... Peterson Antic following XE

don't know why it would get broken but whatever..

I too recall a version of bomb jack that worked on NTSC but my memory is not what it used to be. I do have a PAL Atari in the closet so I could be confused but I was certain I played bomb jack successfully on an NTSC machine.

How do you toggle sounds on real hardware?

It's a choice in the games options.. I only use real hardware... except when I am asked to test something for another specifically in or from Altirra(it's OS or drivers etc.) I compare them running in a real machines vs on Altirra

that and a black box etc...

handy monitors, task masters etc.

but still real hardware
