Why can't we hack / improve Amiga Street Fighter II?

We have two versions of SF2 on the Amiga that have things going for them:

1) Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers AGA - The best playability

2) Super Streetfighter II Turbo CD32 - the best sound and graphics

Can't these two version be hacked together to create something decent?

A lone MegaDrive coder has achieved something beautiful recently on that platform!

@BigD

Well, with powerful enough "Amiga" you can emulate arcade versions in MAME. But that certainly is not what you had in mind.

Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers AGA was already enhanced (thanks to WHDLoad).

Try asking Galahad over at EAB very nicely.

Friend BigD I am always thinking of a similar idea. Always.

1) Lotus Esprite Turbo Challenge II - The best screeching tires fx

2) Eye of the Beholder II - The best stones thrown on pressure plates to keep gates open

Can't these two games be hacked together to create something memorable?

Who wouldn't, I ask myself out loud chasing shadows in the endless night of my mansion, want to see a Mindflayer drive a sportscar, or crash through the corridors of Temple Darkmoon pedal to the metal?

Sincerely Yours,
MRJM

Street Fighter II Tech Demo written in Blitz BASIC for Amiga 1200 computers.


Might as well redo Street Fighter II for Elf Mania/Shadow Fighter level graphics quality.

@Hammer

The main issue besides the lack of playability is the lack of frames in the animations.

@BigD

If we ignore the copyrights for the arts and graphics for a while.

Im sure this can be interesting coding challenge for someone.

Your question: "Why can't we hack"


My answer: "Maybe a lack of knowledge"

The recent Megadrive hack already had a great foundation from which to work on.
Although decent work, it's little more than a sound and graphics hack.

Completely different kettle of fish to merging 2 entirely different codebases.

Size of characters and speed penalties that imposes, along with increased color palette (ditto), RAM requirements and so on are huge considerations.

Would be easier to disassemble the actual Megadrive version and reassemble it with new graphics, sound and i/o code.

I have no doubt the Amiga could do something more accurate than what it has already, but to use the sound and graphics hack as a source of comparison is more than a little naive.

We have the sprites / backgrounds from the CD32 version and the gameplay / logic from the AGA disk version. Yes, it is a coding endeavour and the source code may not be available but less audio / graphics work is needed compared to the MegaDrive remaster and it's more about using the Richard Hazlewood, Shane Clark code to drive the SSF2T graphics and sound (with more frames of animation added). If you had the source code that sounds easier as you have all the resources already available to be recompiled and optimized! Prehaps I'm naive and prehaps the Blitz Basic 2 tech demo is an easier starting point for using the SSF2T assets?

Yes, very interesting especially the subtle use of the Copper to boost colours on OCS. Also, it shows how the parallax scrolling capabilities of the Amiga were criminally ignored on the Final Fight port in particular.

Afterwards I went on see an interview with richard, the guy who done Final Fight, he's still quite fond of amiga.
