Converting a few loading screens is one thing, to convert the full game is quite another. Why not shots of the actual game?


Time will tell. But we're used to big promises, a few screen shots, and then nothing happening sadly.
For some people yes. When has Rhino talked about something and never delivered?

EDIT: Removed "promised" and put "talked about".

Just maybe to keep the full surprise? Don't Know, but does it look clear ?

Is this being entered into the CPCretrodev contest?

If the can make it following the restrictions of the contest (64K, one single load), that would be extra-impressive :D

Considering Rhino did patch the original firmware on the fly in Batman Demo to access more space on the disk my educated guess is it's not likely.

No. There was no patching of firmware.
The disc used a custom disc format with more sectors.

Just for the record, a preview exist for C64, but they never finished it lol.


Somewhere I read that the Pinball Dreams project for C64 was because of a bet.
Well, after more than 10 years, I think that who believed he could do it on C64 should pay the bet.

I did nothing with the disc in BF nor Pinball Dreams, it was Arnoldemu.

As it was said in before, we are talking about Rhino here  :) I am really confident that he has something truly amazing to show us and it is not going to be vaporware!

I have one question : we've all seen the screens converted from the amiga in Perfect pix, but which mode will you use for the ingame ?


Will it be mode 0 or mode 1 with extended palette ?

I also want to propose if needed to post the Pinball Dreams graphic assets from the Amiga version :)

For some reason I doubt Rhino will share any details before the release; he likes to surprise :D
