Does this mean we're in for another 200 comment flamefest elsewhere ?

Congrats anyway. The more games the better.

Reminds me of how far we have come since wolfenstien, but great to have it running a window alongside other things.

Great work!
I never played it (my first FPS was Doom), but I know many people who are still fond of it.
Well, to say the truth I tought for a moment you were talking of RTCW so I was a bit disappointed in seeing the old Wolfy... but we know how to wait, isn't it?

PS: Hey! The clock in AmiDock is working!

We used to play Wolfenstien in Sixth Form College as it was the only thing (and I mean only software) that would run properly on the anchient 386 we had in the study. Sadly like all of ID's FPS it was a great engine, but had crap gameplay underneath, and levels just went on and on of the same thing over and over.

I wish that ID would release the Kommander Keen series under GPL, that was by far thier best games. It's sad really, back in the early 90's the PC had an amazing Shareware scene.

Yeah, me too. It would have been a nice New Years announcement anyway... But RtCW would mean that the Quake III engine was ported... I guess that would be asking too much.

Asking too much?
Oh man, Q3's engine is 4 years old! We should pretend these kind of portings.. otherwise AmigaOne will have a hard life, the videogaming scene is very important..

I happen to like the original and every once in a while still play it start to finish.

Thanks for porting it!

Plus I wanted there to be a comment saying "Thank you" for what has been done, not "I wanted this instead" which seems to be a common theme in the community.

I used to play that game on my old Tandy 2500XL. Was fun!

And I also thought it was RTCW for the Amiga. Maybe the caretakers of AW.net could rectify the situation and fix the title?

Btw has DOOM been ported to AmigaOS4?

Last note: I love the AmigaOS4 UI.

I also wonder where they have been hiding the Agnus and Denise chips on the A1. I have looked all over the motherboard, but couldn't find them.

From what I understand, Steven Fuller doesn't have any previous experience with AmigaOS development. I think it is really neat that Hyperion has hired people open minded enough to take on the challenge to port software from other platforms to an operating system they don't know.

Kudos, Hyperion!

And.... thanks Hyperion, thanks Steven Fuller

Yep, as stated in the Gorky17 news item comments (incidentally I've added the URL of a review of the PC version to that thread), he is new to Hyperion and a convert to AmigaOS, which is great and shows that AmigaOS still has the ability to woo people over to the platform.

Personally I've had it with these FPS games, they were somewhat interesting for a while but every other game released for the PC is one of these, and every other port to the Amiga also seems to be one of these. Gorky17 looks pretty good though. Oh, and can we have a full screen mode please, playing games in a window is fine if you're supposed to be working but most people don't have Amigas at work.

Chris
