hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : Broken Sword II (OS 4)
   posted by amigakit on 14-Oct-2005 17:19:44 (3606 reads)
Enjoy Broken Sword II on your AmigaOne with this package put together for specifically for OS4 users.

Broken Sword II is a point and click adventure game created by Revolution Software. The game features more of the same puzzles as its predecessor. Now you can interact with over 60 characters and explore the colourful, highly detailed locations.



The original sealed game CD comes with an Amiga-specific Installer CDROM (V1.10). This allows quick and easy installation of the game and data files.

Game cut scenes are not included, but are available to download from the SCUMMVM website. Broken Sword is 1997 Revolution Software. SCUMMVM and the
Amiga Installer CD are not in any way affiliated with Revolution Software.

@severin
Thanks!

@Amigaz
On the A1200T here with BlizzardPPC/256Mb/Voodoo 5550 it crawls unfortunately otherwise Classic users would have been included on the install CD.

@amigakit

Monkey Island 3 works quite good here but the music in the cut scenes is terribly chopped up

This is a damn fine game. I've got both & eventually [Couch cough, yeah right] I'll play through BS1 then pick up the story on this one.

Cheers for setting up the package AmigaKit. Tidy setup.

Now that i have connected my CDRW and DVD to the Sii0680 ATA133 PCI-controller
also, and activated the maximum UDMA mode for the DVD-ROM, installing this
game from CD should go way faster! Looking forward to order this in
November

I bought this at BB3, but I haven't tried it yet.

I was thinking about setting up seperate 5gb games partition, any thoughts.

@Swoop

I have an 80gb hard drive with a 30Gb partition for games. I don't play too many games but since the size of game directories getting bigger I figure I'd need it.

Some stats:

ScummVM games: 4Gb
WHDLoad (Through UAE): 500mb (ish)
Loads of the SDL games we have from OS4Depot: 130mb
Beats of Rage: 63Mb
Earth 2140: 98mb
Freespace: 426Mb
Heretic 2: 280Mb
Quake: 140Mb (Including a few extras)
Quake 2: 607Mb
Shogo: 402Mb
Wipeout 2097: 73Mb

My total games partition is now 8.1Gb full. I've got emulators & 'eye candy' on the same partition too. I guess it really is down to the individual but that might help you a little.

FuZion.

Just a thought, but maybe its worthwhile doing a classic installer as well,... there's plenty of people using variations on uae with os3.x as thier main OS which would be fast enough to run these games. Also others using Amithlon (myself included), which is for the most part faster than any A1 if used on decent hardware, so obviously thats more than fast enough as well. Even classic bppc machines have a decent go at it and csppc based machines would probably be fast enough to run any scummvm games nigh on perfectly (well as perfect as scummvm is going to get). To be honest though Im surprised people are paying for this and not just finding a cheap copy of the games on ebay or similar, its not like scummvm is hard at all to configure,... heck there's even an idiot proof gui,... but seeing as people are then why not increase the potential "market" ??

Well, people like to support Amiga companies. And if I have understood right, AmigaKit sells "new copies" not 2nd hand ebay stuff.

All copies of the games are brand new and sealed/shrink wrapped.

I talk to many Amiga users every week and I will say that lots of Amiga users aren't experts and do not want the hassel of configuring SCUMMVM - the install CD is quite lengthy and literally does all the configuration so you can install and play.. In addition on the CD, there is Amiga specific PDF and game icons ready to go.

There are many experienced users here on AW.net who can fiddle around with SCUMMVM .cfg files - but its my belief that if the future OS4 market is to be accessible to outsiders, we need software that is accessible to all- just as it is in the Windows market.

Also making the games accessible is convenient and means you dont have to go around PC shops/ebay etc to find the software.

I have a very powerful Classic Amiga here and as I have said before - the games are too slow to be enjoyable. I take the point about Amithlon though. But I suppose if you have a PC, you will just boot the original game up in Windows anyway...

In hindsight I guess I was commenting from my personal situation (someone who is capable of doing the configuring himself and not working at the moment). I also wasnt aware exactly what additional effort had been put in, nor was I aware that they where new copies of the software, so I change my view from the last post to "Good Work,... keep it up" : )

@Mr_Capehill

Couldnt of said it any better myself,
I bought my copies off ebay but if they were available at Amigakit at the time I would have bought from them and supported the Miggy comunity.

Thats what its all about.

@AmigaKit

Excellent to see these games being released with installers.

Keep up the good work.

Btw your links to Joypad (Digital/Amiga) don't find the item.
