Turrican 2 as a work in progress MS-DOS to AMIGA AGA conversion gets a new World 3 tease (HOT NEWS)

One other nice Amiga replace via Indie Retro Information on this very early Tuesday morning, as we have simply came upon via Saberman on Fb, that Muzza has simply launched a brand new demo world 3 for the work in progress MS-DOS to Amiga conversion of the basic motion shooter sport Turrican II. The second sport within the Turrican collection, which was initially developed by Issue 5 within the 90’s and launched on the Amiga, C64, CDTV, Atari ST, Amstrad CPC and ZX Spectrum, and later for DOS.

As we mentioned earlier than when the sport was beforehand introduced as the primary teaser. Not solely is that this model of Turrican 2 a piece in progress conversion of the MS-DOS launch which was created as a undertaking to be taught ASM, and far of written in C on the finish. However the sport is principally the identical because the Amiga model we all know and love nonetheless to at the present time, whereas that includes extra colours and better particulars just about as quickly as you begin enjoying the sport.

For these of you who need to know what’s completely different in comparison with the primary and second demo we tried some months again, it now options new enemy conduct, much less bitplanes over the earlier ranges as this degree makes use of much less colors than the primary world, a decreased blitter strain compensating for the added price of the parallax, all 3 ranges from World 3 (all of the spaceship ranges) are included, all of the enemies and managers are actually working, the participant can now die however has infinite lives, there could also be some balancing points, World 3-2 has a parallax layer which is improved from the MS-DOS model, in addition to different enhancements and options which have additionally been improved from the MS-DOS model.

Usually the sport has separate code modules, so the code that controls the enemies is barely in RAM for the degrees that want it. I’ve made the error of not testing on actual {hardware} lately and found at this time that one thing has damaged it (works fantastic underneath emulation). So this construct has the code modules turned off – the one distinction to the top person is the loading occasions and the way a lot Quick RAM it requires. However I do want to repair this subsequent and I am not significantly wanting ahead to painful debugging cycle of transferring information between PC and Amiga, working it, crashing it, rebooting, and so forth.

In case you learn one among my earlier posts, I had 95% of this demo prepared greater than a month in the past. So why has taken so lengthy? One motive is actual life getting in the best way – coping with legal professionals and a neighbor dispute has zapped plenty of time. The opposite motive is that I’ve made a big change to the best way I develop the sport. I had created a software that allowed you to vary all the pieces – you may redo all graphics, music, maps and enemy behaviour after which have it output a very completely different sport. I assumed this was a good suggestion once I began, however ultimately it resulted in spending 90% of my time engaged on the software, and the complexity was rising uncontrolled. So I’ve fully lower down the software to the fundamentals that I must get the sport finished and hopefully going ahead I can put 90% of my time into the sport and solely 10% into the software.
