I enjoy the coding challenge.

Thats the only reason needed. Why do people read books, why do people paint, why do people spend their time on a forum dedicated to a computer that the rest of the world nearly has forgotten about. Answer: Because they like it. Who's to judge what's a waste of time and what's not.

excuse my ignorance....

but WHY THE HELL would anyone want to play a game you can download from the internet
with dosbox and play it, all in about 2 minutes of work and for free?
only to see how crap it looks and turn it off?

your a legend mate, but i really think your wasting your time...BIG TIME.

That's a very short sighted viewpoint.  Why do so many programmers port Linux to every imaginable CPU on the planet?  Because it's a challenge and they enjoy it.  That's why.  Same goes for guys who write application software and games.

I agree - I tend to think that people just enjoy the challenge, it's no different from doing a puzzle - keeps the mind going, helps you remember old skills. The other aspect is that it is creative whether you are creating some new or modifying some old. I have not got Nova's skills but I can imagine the pleasure in seeing something work for the first time. Having written a few PC game, I also enjoy getting e-mails or comments on my game - both positive and negative.
 
And to be frank if your opinion is how crap it looks then I don't think you get the whole retro thing?  I love my PS Vita and have had many happy days on my PS1/2/3 (and no doubt sometime in the future, 4) but I am also increasing having fun with my Amiga 1200.  I would have died to play Wolf 3D back in the day (enjoyed may Doom sessions with Doom Atack on my old 040/40 tower) and ofcourse there a little part of all of us Amy fans who think if what Novacoder is doing now was done then, perhaps we'd still have a Commodore today!  
 
Everyone is entitled to their comments but in this case:

This is a pretty good answer: http://www.amiga.org/forums/showthread.php?p=741022#post741022 ;)

Yeah you be pretty hard pressed to find forums  users 10 years on, on most forums these days. Yet most of us have  endured! why? who knows.

I see My Amiga500 as a platform. That has limitations, The limitations imposed are what give
it personality!.. those 4096 colors I'm sure we have all seen hundreds  of times. in fact alot of us can probably give out the hex code to a  color we see on the screen lol!

The Amiga has something other computers don't. And its not because I was  using one when I was 14. Now that I'm 33 i don't think its a nostalgia  thing. But then again who knows how ones mind works...

The Amiga will never rise again as a new platform, simply because it doesn't need one.
The platform it filled is still there.

(ps i think this is my longest post in 10 years lol)

Another user has confirmed that CGX-AGA is not compatible with AmiWolf.
Coming back to this, I've searched through all my startup-sequences and system folders, and there's no sign of CGX-AGA or CyberBugfix; I dunno if they don't come with ClassicWB Lite, or if the guy who set it up for me removed them, but they don't seem to be present. Any further ideas on what might be causing this issue? ScummVM-AGA-030 is also hanging when I try to launch it...

Hiya,

It's very hard to debug this online :(

Have you tried it under WinUAE?   If you can get it working under WinUAE it does at least prove that you've got the correct data files.

Another thing you can try is to boot from a 3.0 WB disk and see if that lets you start it from WB (keep the disk in obviously).

For reference I'm running OS 3.9 with BB1 & BB2 and hardly any other patches/hacks (only Blizkick, FBlit and CopyMem060).

This game does seems to be very 'fussy', not sure why.   I know there are 3 different versions of the retail game data files and my port only supports 1 of them.

A few people noticed that my AmiWolf ports had stopped working recently (it turns out that they had an expiry date!).

I've managed to find the time to update all of these 3 ports to fix the time bug.

v1.18 of AGA/ECS and Spear of Destiny (AGA only) uploaded to AmiNet, I'll whack them in the Zone on EAB too :)

Have a play with enabling the new 'priority' tool type, might help performance slightly for some users.

Over in the 'Zone' on EAB Dlfrsilver has just converted some really nice MIDI files to make them compatible with AmiWolf/AmiSpear.   I've given them a try myself and can confirm that they sound much better than the original ones :)

Some user's were telling me that the mouse control wasn't working properly so I've now fixed it up and uploaded new versions to AmiNet (ECS/AGA/RTG) and also AmiSpear AGA.

Seems much smoother now and very playable  8)

Thanks Novacoder. I saw Amiwolf pop up as a recent upload on Aminet last week and played it over the weekend. I am very impressed.

Can you give any more detail about which versions of the original game work best? The description in the readme is a bit cryptic. I'm happy with how it runs for me (and it works with a demo version I found) but anything to get some further performance is of interest.

Thank you.
