There's a lot of software out there that promises everything and delivers nothing. I felt more than a little dissapointed by some Sonic The Hedgehog demo on an Amiga emulation site. Looked like it was someone's first attempt on AMOS!

:-D

The good stuff usually uses a lot of Assembly language, C or even Blitz Basic.

With the Playstation 1 it only had a 33Mhz CPU, probably no more powerful than an '040 40Mhz. Really we should have had a 3D chip long before the Blizzard Vision PPC's Permedia 2.

One could always try mounting a tiny PSone motherboard into a 5.25" drive bay and genlock the output with the Amiga's. I wonder if you made your Workbench background a pure blue whether some sort of chromakey would allow you to have Tombraider running on Workbench without some expensive Picasso-IV TV-in combo...

or someone could make an iso view tombraider game

i started on a quake2 iso game engine that would take simple quake2 levels and convert them to iso levels. it was a bit too much though. the iso converter would have taken a really long time to render a level. i looked at doom sources and stuff once that might have worked a bit better...

hmmmm
Oh yeah?!?
Well your stupid bit is set,
and its read only!

I did play Tomb Raider on my Amiga, and I am not a liar.. :)

Using AmiBleem I was able to run it just fine.. But it was VERY slow, it did about 2fps or even less. I have some screenshots somewhere if someone is interested.

:lol:

Sounds like when I tried playing Doom and Quake on my old 030 with 16MB ram.

Very painful.

Sonic the Hedgehog was a successful attempt by japanese electronic firm to overcome Amiga, by creating killer characters they PROHIBITED all videogame makers to port it on Amiga.

Sonic is nothing but just Mickey Mouse painted in blue, with a smart bad guy smile, some fleecy thorns on its back, and drawn as here in Italy use to draw Mikey Mouse (smart big eyes) since the '70 years.



Here Mickey Mouse in Casablanca remake, drawn by Giorgio Cavazzano italian Disney artist.



Here is Sonic...

Really looks a Mickey Mouse with steroids and Genetically modified. Sonic is nothing but a bad OGM of Mickey.

And remember that on Amiga our programmers just demonstrated Amiga can do it more than the pityful Sonic the blue-pig-hog, because we created JAMES POND!



Too bad the Amiga videogames firms had not the same resources as japanese, to create a James Pond cartoon and full merchandise, to overcome Sonic the pidgeon!
 
:-D

For all other people.

There is a good Playstation 1 emulator called Bleem.

If I remember well it runs also on Amiga.

Check it, or just check for modern implementations of Playstation emulators.

Then also we could ask some programmers to create a loader, just as in "Earth 2410", or Quake, or Descent Freespace.

Surely the greatest video game character of all time has to be Professor Monkey For A Head (Earthworm Jim).

The evil character it is very impressive!  :-o  :crazy:  :-P





And regarding Playstation emulation I found also Amiga PPC version of it (AmigaOS 4.0).

It is called FPSE. Last version available seems to be 0.0.8 or 0.0.9.

Seems it was created on AmigaOS 3.x. So it runs also on it.

Here I found also evidences it runs on MorphOS.

Download sites:

(Warning! Some are dead! Why?)

http://www.geocities.co.jp/Playtown/2004/fpse.htm

http://fpse.emuunlim.com/

http://www.amidog.com/amiga/fpse/index.html

Search the web well to find valid download sites.

[EDIT]

Found a valid one:

http://os4depot.net/share/emulation/gamesystem/fpse.lha

[EDIT END]

I also hope that someone could contact AmiDog for continuing the porting of this emulator or I hope that someone could continue the developing from the source files.


P.S. I found also infos of the existence of SOPE Emulator for AmigaOS 3.x. It uses MINIGL.

About SOPE are surely available also the sources.

Is Amiga SOPE a real thing, or just another incomplete dead project?

Main site:

http://sope.sourceforge.net/

http://www.amidog.com/amiga/sope/index.html

(See download page).

I want to made for SOPE same consideration I made for FPSE: Could someone continue enhancing it?

FPSE works fine on AmigaOS 4 with the Warp3D plugin I played yesterday TOCA 2 and it's faster than the Non3D plugin which outputs uglier graphics anyway. Only problem I have with it is that the AmigaInput plugin is not released to the public so I had to steer the cars with Keyboard. Sadly only Tomb Raider 3 works on the emulator according to FPSE compatibility database,from the Tomb Raiders series, which I don't have anyway, but may buy it.

He works on it, although very slowly, probably lost motivation?

SOPE was much slower, less compatible and incomplete, it was abandoned in favour of FPSE which is better and have that great plugin functionality. But anyone can continue to work on SOPE it if he wants.

So this is where Tombraider has been spotted on Amiga? A PPC-based Playstation emulator?

:inquisitive:

If an emulator is written well it like original machine or better (see winuae, and the fact It could add more chipmem than original Amiga chipset)...

So a PPC based Playstation emulator running on new Amigas (which have enough horsepower) sounds it so odd to you?
