Toki - CPC development game project-
 
 This game should be 100% finished and come out for the 30th years arcade game birthday.
 
 This Toki CPC version should be supported on CPC+ and GX4000’s platform.
 
 To be continued...
Cyrille Gouret:
 
Authors still “mysterious “ as only know it’s a French group of 3 or 4 people named GGP. Who discovered the Amstrad CPC in 80’s. And now want to restart to program as a challenge.
 About GX4000 and CPC+ platform , it is due to the modes and colors palette possibilities.
 I guess more info will come soon

This is one of my favs, used to finish it on the Amiga and arcades.
I was in deep pain that it wasn't released for my beloved Z80.

If the Ocean version had come out that would have been Plus/GX4000 only.

Loved the game as a kid although I found it very hard after a while. I'm sure it's a very difficult conversion, so I can only hold my breath :)

Yes, but we all know that it was somekind of agreement with amstrad to do only cpc+ games (pang, navyseals, toki...)
and because of this bad move, us (users of cpc classic), lost some interesting games, 99% amstrad users can't buy this games (only 1% cpc+, maybe they lost 99,50% of sales with this thing, not a smart move eh?)
I know that this i'm going to say are hard words... just wish the amstrad cpc+ didn't exist ever. with that total failiure, better have this games on cpc classic and then the same end... not more games from Ocean.

I have a plus machine and many "original".
I wish this works with the old machines but if the coder can do it only on a plus machine then it's OK.

As I recall the first level was complete but the memory usage was so high it would have required a larger cartridge to fit all of the game into. Ocean said no and ditched the game.

In the pic it seems that the sprites are HUGE!
it's going to perform smooth on a cpc classic? I hope so!!

I don't think that sprite is huge. I think screen is small...

Sprite looks 6 x 3 mode 1 chars big, with screen width <30 chars wide but could be wrong  :P

Looks good, uses a pseudo scroll will that annoy people?
Title: Re: Toki conversion for CPC+ [ WIP ]
Post by: fgbrain on 14:32, 09 September 18
I agree. Sprites look big and colourful but the scroll seems a bit jerky...


And they promised a plus version as welll which they didnt show in the video..


Still it seems to be a decent conversion.... We' ll see!!!

Guys, this is software. What did you expect from a CPC? You've been watching demos and CPC+ game too much.


This looks good and playable to me, and very colorful, so the game should be great.


If you want 50hz scrolling and sprites, wait for a CPC+ version.

Totally agree here, the game looks perfect and moves perfect, too much demos and game concepts can make forget some crappy games that we had in 80/90's!

"We are neither professional developers nor demo makers"


I think that was clear from the beginning, so we must appreciate with what we have (and looks gorgeous ;) )

As the first post said, the + version will "only" add differents colors

Doesn't annoy me.  If you want smooth scrolling go play the arcade game (via MAME) or one of the 16 bit ports.  I'm not a big fan of the game but this version looks to capture it's gameplay well from what I can see in the video.

I've not played it but the scrolling looks fine to me, it reminded me a bit of green beret and I know peeps got funny about that.  It would be good to see a plus version that brings the colours, sprites and scrolling but even if this doesn't materialise this version looks to be coming on good.

Oh, this seems to be a CPC conversion. On Cartridge the scrolling is smooth and sprites are bigger. Thank's a lot for sharing the video.  :)

lack of smooth scrolling wasn't what annoyed me about Green Beret. Being a crap game was what annoyed me about it.

We have background gfx. Look at the c64 -cartridge- release. The game isn't finished and that's full of promise.

Just to remind of some nice cpc titles...
When the developers showed pic of their "first version of 1992" the first closest game that came into my mind was Sly Spy Secret Agent. Which has great colorfull sprites and good scrolling on a big screen..


But dont get me wrong ...
The job done looks awesome esp. for a  homebrew game!!!
Keep up the effort guys...
