Smile NEW AmigaOS 4.x game arriving soon!!

Hi everyone

Wanted to share a soon to be released game for AmigaOS 4.x. It is none other than the famed Amiga retro shooter Battle Squadron with all its glory and landing very soon.
I have enclosed the first ingame fullscreen screenshot in HD 1920*1080 also showing a real-time pixel blending technique used in the game.

(Note AOS4 screensize tested 1024*768)

Thanks,
There will be improvements, like ingame achievements, but I will wait on the press release to say what exactly those improvements are

Hi Torben
Wow, thanks for this I don,t own an OS4 capable machine (yet) but it's nonetheless a great news and commitments.
Will it be an online only download or do you plan to do a packaging like what does Psytronik or RGCD?

Please please please please please port it to MorphOS. I'll buy it, i'll even pay for a pre-order!

I already have bought the Android version twice for different devices (One for me and one for my 14yr old son) and it is excellent, plays even better than the original did on my A500 back in the day and triggers off so many great memories of that period of my life.

The Zipstick was designed for this game, without such a quality controller it falls down (didn't like the Sega version with pads nope not one bit)

Actually if we could have a budget packaging re-release on 3.5" disk for real Amigas that would be great, I'm not paying 100 bucks on ebay for a copy of the game...noooooooo way mr ebay

I'm afraid the words "budget" and "3.5" disk" will never be in the same sentence again. They don't make the things anymore so that makes them rare thus expensive, plus there probably are not many places where floppies can be written to and be packaged up either thus adding more cost.

True words about the ZipStick, I hammered mine to death and it took about 3yrs to eventually break. Would love a USB version with extra buttons that was built to the same or higher quality. I don't really play Amiga or PC games that much but with one of these I'd definitely start up again!

Hi Nicholas,
That's awesome support, thanks
In regards to a MorphOS version. I'll pass on your request but no promises at this time.

It's not too hard to get brand new DSDD disks. Just had a quick look on Google, and discounting EBay found this:
http://www.stenoworks.com/floppy-dis...5-with-labels/

They still make 5.25" disks so they may make dsdd disks too... not sure.

It shouldn't take very long to re-compile it for MorphOS, if you need any assistance send me a PM and I'll put you in touch with the proper people.

I think there are probably more active MorphOS users than there are OS4* too so it's a bigger market, or perhaps they have about equal number of users. Either way it will at least double your amount of potential customers at the very minimum when you combine both markets together.



*No sales figures available for OS4 but most AmigaONE/Teron motherboards have unfortunately died by now due to old age and bad build quality, that leaves the X1000 with "more than 200" owners, the unknown number of ACube SAM boards, and the Pegasos II which is a MorphOS machine that just happens to run OS4 too. I really don't want to start another "holy war" here, I'm just trying to put potential market figures out there for you to consider whether it's worth your time and money to port to MorphOS.

End of sales pitch/begging effort.

@ Nicholas

It must take time I'm sure and that's why other new recent commercial games like Huenison and M.A.C.E also unfortunately could not make a MorphOS port.

Too many wasted threads about having the same programs running on similar but yet different Amiga OS's here. The day will have to come when one United OS for Modern Amiga users will be here instead of all the wasted hours making the same program work on 3 different systems.

Well we can blame McBill and Benji's greed 13 years ago for that, but I think that at some point in the future both OS4 and MorphOS will eventually die leaving us with AROS and nice cheap commodity that is powerful.

And yes it will take time (not that much though tbh) that's why I tried to show the combined potential market. Torben is a businessman afterall, and figures are what businessmen need to base their decisions on.
