No crashes here yet.

I need more practice, I can barely get to the end of a song.

Unfortunately Sound just died on my A4000 - so I need to test it on another Amiga.

Hard is insane. I'm just using the keyboard though.

Pretty awesome. Thanks for the release.

(is that some x1000 advertising I see in the background )

Just played this for the 1st time. Very good. I will have to load up some mods of songs I know - makes it easier to get in the groove.

The highscore table was the only confusing bit for me, after setting the first letter, I couldn't seem to successfully move to the next letter and select one.

Also, is it something I am doing or after the first play, selecting another track brings up the highscore table again BEFORE even playing that round!

Apart from that the game is attractive, responsive and addictive - what else could you want?

Yep it's great to see a new AGA game released in 2010....17 years after the chipset was released, how's that for long legs?

I could only get this to work when booting without startup (not enough chipram I assume). Anyway, nice game and looking forward to the final release!

Just tried this on my 1200 using the keyboard and I like it. Lotus 2 soundtrack would be awesome. I like track 5 best!! Great work, well done!!

I'm glad you like the game. BTW, Lotus 2 main theme is already supported, you just need to copy the mod into any of the song folders. Make sure the name is the same than the dat file in the datas folder :)

Thats good news about Lotus 2. Not quite sure what you mean with regard to getting the music onto TrackerHero though as I am abit of a novice. Any help, walkthrough of how to do it would be great. Again though, cheers for the great game and looking forward to more versions. Cheers!!

Ok, not that much of a novice in that I managed to get Lotus 2 going. I have a few questions though!

1. After copying the Lotus 2 music into the easy folder and medium folder I loaded the mod in the editor from the easy level folder and it started playing and all these numbers started coming up in the current instrument box? What is happening here?

2. When the track had finished playing I saved it to the mod.lotus2.dat data file. I carried out the same procedure for the medium level folder too. When playing the mod back on easy and medium both difficulties/notes to play etc seem to be the same across both levels. Why is this?

3. When loading a mod into the editor there is a box with calculate high score? What is this?

4. Finally, when playing Lotus 2 on easy and medium, not only do they seem identical, there seems to be a while at the start and then in the middle where there are no notes to play at all. Is this the way it is supposed to be?

If I am doing anything wrong, or if anyone can offer advice it would be much appreciated. But I do like the game. Hard playing it on the keyboard though!

Hi,

you did too much, just copying the mod file to the folder should work

The white space at the start and middle is normal with this mod, don't worry

-Error screen added, the song wont load if thre isn't enough
Chip RAM available.
-Menu option selection improved.
