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



That would be too easy.  Much better to spend hundreds of dollars (maybe a cool grand) to play a port of a 10 year old PC game.

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

Definitely more job than porting, but it still has been done quite a few times.

DELETED - FAKE

Enjoy this piece of history ;-)

EDIT: Or not. Sorry for that. Had no clue that it was a fake.

It's a fake.

Libs/graphics.library is ixnet.library 46.1 (part of ixemul)

Libs/TombRaider.library is bullet.library 38.9 (part of AmigaOS)

Display/#?.driver files seem to be from SuperView.

xls/colorfix.cls is desttracker.library 1.4
xls/controls.xls is ixnet.library 46.1 (part of ixemul)
xls/display.xls is ixnet.library 46.1 (part of ixemul)
xls/Graphic.xls is amarquee.library 39.0
xls/sound.xls is arexx.class 40.36

Quick analysis of the "AmiTombRaider" binary shows that it opens three libraries: dos.library, utility.library and mathieeedoubbas.library. It has some code that outputs error claiming that your system doesn't have the required resources to run the game.

The main() of this "port" or "reimplementation" is

Code: [Select]

int main(void)
{
  printf("Amiga Tomb Raider - By Team Happy ©1997");
  printf("\n\nYour Amiga Has been evaluated and has");
  printf("\ncome up with the following:");
  printf("\nSorry, You Amiga Cannot run Tomb Raider\n");
  printf("\nbecuase of one of the following reasons:");
  printf("\n\nNo PowerPC Card Found");
  printf("\nNo 040 Processor Detected");
  printf("\n8 Megs Fast Ram not allocated");
  printf("\nGraphics Card Not Found");
  printf("\nPC Tomb Raider Files Not Found");
  printf("\nIf you have got this message then you");
  printf("\ncurrently cannot run Tomb Raider. Please");
  printf("\n\nTry And Resolve this by using one");
  printf("\nor more of the above. It does work!");

  return 0;
}


"It does work", indeed.


@Nickman

This is a rather poor fake, it gave itself away even before looking into the files. Better luck next time...

Any idea if the RTG version will work on MOS?

It works just fine, as it only outputs the error message. That's the only thing it will ever do, though.

Oh yeah right... You'd guess he was not producing a truly factual statement, then ;-)

Ahh :-(
Back in 97 i didn't have a PPC or GFX card or enough memory.. Forgot all about it long ago.
Well now we know though. But i have a strange recollection of seeing the opening cave in TR1 on my miggy :-? Could there be another REAL release ? or maybe it was on an old PC :idea:
My memory is not as good as before i guess  :lol:

Well, whatever.

But please edit out the link, as the archive contains AmigaOS files, and it's useless anyway...
