@RetroMan_de and @ Saimo

firstly to RetroMan in Deutschland is it?

wel, if you really are a retro man, youll surely like this game. I got it today, and after 5 minutes, I was accidentally no longer working / training / or doing my much needed updates for BlitterWolf.

Basically, I loved the chaos engine, and games like this back in the day, Although this is different style totally, and nicer to play, I must say that for 12.50 euro, inclusive of packaging, cd quality, and ofcourse Saimo's time, this is cheap. Just in case, you didnt hear me

CHEAP COST!

So, If the Amiga community is to grow again, we should all, who can afford to, instead of buying a music cd, or dvd, buy something that supports the current amiga developers, or in saimos case, a dual developer that has taken into consideration that he would like the Amiga community to grow.

@ SAIMO

Dude, this game is awesome. Please PLease make another game. I like your ideas totally. Infact, Id go as far to say that there is only one thing that didnt appeal to me, and it wasnt even your fault or the game.

I picked it up from my local Post Office, only to find the dvd case wrecked, HOWEVER, luckily, what I had FEARED was not so. The ever most IMPORTANT part of the buy, was all perfect condition.

So I simply placed it into a spare empty dvd case, and now I have a quality product I can show off at the next amiga meet, which is tomorow

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I gotta add this to those that actually read this thread, and not skim it

I can confirm the whole packaging, manual, etc, is very, very well done. The cd printed graphics and logo, on the cd, are in itiself worth the buy.

I mean, It is really printed, I mean printed I tell you, professionally.

Comparison wise is simple, I believe it looks better print quality than crossfire 2 cd or to this effect.

the media itself well, I love crossfire 2 also, so, Im just wanted people to know, you dont get a crappy manual and crappy cd,like some media in the past from other dev's, it is very much so the Opposite.

QUALITY WISE for bang for buck, Id rate it at 9 out of 10.

Again

Thank you saimo, and a very fine product indeed.

I hope the future holds another fantastic game, perhaps even more obscure than this one. We need more unique games, to stay different from the NORM.

Cheers.

Keep up the good work.



EDIT : Fixed spelling mistake on Obscure

Man, I do not think you can imagine how happy it makes me to see that somebody else is really enjoying what I created with so much love and passion. Thanks a lot for your kind words and your support!

I wonder how they managed to break the case despite the padded envelope: have they thrown heavy metal boxes on top of it?!?

As regards future games: I have plenty of ideas for BOH 2 and other totally different games, but honestly I do not think I will be ever able to undertake a similar enterprise again. I am unemployed and making games whose sense most of the world does not even understand is not going to earn me a living. :(

I am sorry, but the game is not for 680x0.
The update will add the possibility of disabling interpolation for a great speedup that *maybe* will make the game playable on PPC accelerator boards, but 680x0 will still be of no use.

Thanks,

@saimo

thats ok, you can still develop another game or two, while having a day job, when you find one.

Why do you think things are taking their time and toll on even something like a porting of a game for us here at Blitterwolf.

Both my colleague and I are working during the day, and only get limited time to even do anything as important as amiga related stuff.

Id even go as far to say, this is the case for many Amigans out there creating stuff.

So it may be quiet a while before we can really see if we can do something nice for the Amiga Platform in the distant future.

But this is the price one pays when trying to sustain a living needs, not including other private life situations that may arise and take away potential Amiga time.

cheers

P.S. So whats planned for BOH 2??

I know that because BOH was developed mostly in those conditions. However, I was lucky because my last 2 jobs left me some time... but I could manage to wrap it all up only when I became totally unemployed. The point is that I cannot go on like this forever.

More kinds of passages, more kinds of enemies, more missions and an additional feature that will radically expand the gameplay
But, frankly, looking at how things are going right now, I don't think BOH 2 will ever see the light of the day

I can't say how well, but I can surely say I'm promoting as well as I can and interacting with lots of people around the world. F.ex., have a look here, where I posted my last reply just a few minutes ago. Moreover, I got the news to appear on IGN and lots of other places. The only thing I have not done yet is getting the Linux community involved because of these reasons:
* BOH does not support Linux directly (yet);
* Linux people is used to free stuff;
* Linux people is less interested in gaming (at least, that's my impression).

You are right, in fact I'm spending most of my time precisely for that

saimo

P.S. So, have you been at the meeting? I'm under the impression that the aussie Amiga scene is quite alive... is it so? What was the reaction about BOH?

Just ordered my copy (and I don't even runs OS4.1 yet) - so EVERYBODY, please support this developer - it's only 12,5 (ex. VAT) - less than the price of a family-size pizza in Denmark........

Hi again,

yersteday I improved the update by adding a button that allows the map to be zoomed/unzoomed on the fly; now, since the button is reconfigurable, I need a true-to-the-original translation to German, French and Spanish of this simple string: "map zoom" (the context is "left (key), fire (key), map zoom (key), etc."). Can anybody help me, please?

Thanks in advance!

saimo

I don't own the game, so can't say for sure it really sticks to the context, but "map zoom" can be translated to "zoomer la carte" but it also depends on how this key is supposed to work is it an on/off switch ? In this case you could use "carte agrandie"
(which could litteraly transled into english "zoomed map" or "big map").

First off, thanks for the response
You are right, I did not explain it well - post made in a hell of a hurry
That string appears in the joypad configuration page, where the program asks for buttons and then waits for the user to select the button to assign to any given function. F.ex.
1. "turn left:" appears;
2. the player chooses the button;
3. the program prints the button associated to "turn left";
4. "fire:" appears;
5. the player chooses the button;
6. the program prints the button associated to "fire";
7. "map zoom:" appears...

The key acts as a toggle that switches the map zoom on the fly between 1x and 2x.

Sorry for not explaining it properly before.

I agree - everybody wants new software for OS4, so support the developers.
