Tomb raider for the Amiga?
« on: March 12, 2006, 08:18:43 PM »
 I read some rumours that there was an Amiga port for the Tomb raider. Is this true? Where can i find it?
 I did a brief google search and i found only news items (in polish) about it but not the port itself.

Even if they were, it would not be legal.

There was a Trojan Virus, disguised as Tomb Raider (for the PPC)... avoid it.

Toombraider was made by ex Amiga users I think, some demo guys I think. Maybe that is what you heard and you thought it was made for the Amiga.

There was a clone announced, called Claws of the Devil, but it was never released.

Just buy a PS1 and hide it under your A1200, then you can pretend...

i saw a demo once just a bare 3d engine demo that had a laura croft 3dmesh running it was very basic with very simple textures but it ran on a base 1200.
nothing ever came of it though.
Oh yeah?!?

port anything you want it is legal but try to sell it and it isnt. they are porting windows to linux with wine etc. but it is all free and done in accordance with the law, same with aros

So Tomb Raider source code is available legally?

you dont neccisarily have to have the source code to port something, all you need to do it produce code that reproduces the functionality of the original.
if you made a game engine that could use all the same data files etc. as the original tomb raider it would effectively be a port. and potentially a legal one. some programmers made an executale for unreal tournament that ran on linux and used all the original data files that worked so well the game publishers actually recommended it for linux users, of course you had to buy the game to get the data files unless you only played mods
Oh yeah?!?

Yes you do, or else there is nothing to port.

That's no port, but reimplementation. And for something as complex as a game, and from scratch... Well good luck.

There's the official Linux Unreal Tournament port that is based on the original source code. Where is this reimplementation version? URL?

There is an open source reimplementation of TombRaider called OpenRaider. It just hasn't progressed much lately.
