Yep! You could be right; the loading screen is actually from ATARI-ST & I can't find anything about an AMIGA version!
 
TEAM-17 recently said that we shouldn't rule-out a remake of SUPERFROG! That's a shame as I really didn't like SUPERFROG, I preferred WORMS & ALIEN BREED 3D & PROJECT X &... well, you get the idea!!

About Ranarama , this is the AYC version of the ST tune (same theme but far better) and the player from AY kit.
"NOP" is the perfect program : short , fast and (known) bug free

In this case is not the same, TFM, the Amiga version is an hyped shoot'em'up.

About Ranarama , this is the AYC version of the ST tune (same theme but far better) and the player from AY kit.
Mr. Rogers made his ST musics (Exolon, Zynaps and Ranarama) in his CPC, because that you can find them in CPC native format (more easy to patch the CPC games) in his Music Collection that i uploaded a few months ago here (it looks that you don't know what did i upload last summer ;D ;D ;D )

I was going to attach the JDR ST-version of the tune to the loading screen, but got tied up with Speedlock to get it done! Also, it might be nice to see if we could inject his ST music into the game itself.

@TFM:But the CPC is not so hyped :P

Serious mode on: Project X Amiga is an horizontal scroller, while the CPC game is a vertical scroller... but the really curious is that Project X CPC looks very similar at Wings of Death, an Amiga and st (Buuuu  :P ) game published by Thalion :D

@Fano: But we know that you employ your summer making to the CPC community a wonderful present, the Dream is going to be true in a few weeks ;)

- Next? Well, there are small games like TECHNICIAN TED & FANTASIA DIAMOND that only require crunching; they do not have funky loading screens or protection.
Actually, Technician Ted has a loading screen, and it's really cool as well - from a technical perspective. The screen is animated with ten Teds walking left and right, all while the game is loading from tape! :o You can download the CDT file for Technician Ted from CPC-POWER.

I've never examined the loading scheme, though, and I'm not sure I want to! I think it's called 'Multiload', and the same technique of animating the screen during loading has been used in several other games - most notably Deflektor.

You know, my original tape never had this loader back in the day as I think it was part of a compilation, but I watched it load today in awe! And when you consider this was written in 1984, it's simply incredible!
 
The loader code itself is pretty easy to follow and very easy to crack with WinAPE.

Wow, and this was a '84 title? Nice... and with a timer to boot!

Final screen version DSK (w/ and w/o title) and the nice AY tune.  :) 
EDIT: Add logos that you may reuse...

Great picture, do you have a download link for the updated Zynaps game? Or is it just a picture, actually not implemented in the game? Sorry for asking :)

I wanted to wait until you had released your final-version before I released my trump card. (Emphasis on the word "trump"!)

Now we need to patch the game, too! A 1:1 Spectrum conversation should do ;)

Or a BASIC conversation with sound effects from Roland on the ropes...
