Improve old games
« on: 13:42, 05 November 09 »
Hi all!

I begun to improve some old CPC games.
This means: I am making new sprites, gfx etc for these games and inject them into the game.

A work-in-progress you can see in my actual game: Cauldron 1 (German version: Hexenk├╝che)
Almost every sprite I changed here and they look smoother now.
I need more work on the witch to look better in the cave @ the graveyard. But the other sprites are already done.

Keys: CTRL = fire, arrow keys to move/fly

I attached 2 screenshots from the original game.

Could you do the same for some of the CPC's driving games, wec-le-mans and Outrun could do with a make over, as could Super Hang-on? Oh and Laser Squad.

Nothing too much wrong with Laser Squad as it is.  Although, CPC conversions of the Speccy expansion missions (which can be found at LaserSquad.co.uk) would be nice.

Sad, that Gryzor killed the forum attachments again...
I wanted to download my snapshot and it's corrupt!
But he knows he must upload everything in BINARY mode, not in ASCII!
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

This should be a BINARY snapshot.
But it's stored as ASCII on server.
So the sna is corrupt now, like all forum attachments without fileextension (encrypted)

Ah - I see what you mean. Ok, the backup is still on the server, so no harm done :) This was from the last upgrade, I thought it was related to the email I sent you...
