So long this one works on my SAM, not like Hyperions gear, EG. Heretic 2, Shogo and Freespace Descent.

Nice work, will consider looking into it.

Cheers

@Gebrochen

Freespace 1 also works on SAM. You can download a OS4 version from Hyperion's website.
Shogo should work, too, when started from command line but here, I'm not sure if i have played it on AOS4/Pegasos2 or AOS4/Sam440ep.

What's EG?

regards,
nexus

its free software !!!!
and freespace 1 from hp is working great on my micro...
the other games works aswell in uae but's its to slow there is an bounty for jit in uae,so you can take action if you want to change things. anyway i hope the bounty will be remade to cover just a "new version" not the gui but the enigne itself, and with faster hardware comming up it will be good anuf i hope

@author

i see that crediting people for their work is starting to be a forgotten habbit. at least add a note where you took the installation script from.

For a while I thought this was a port of Descent 2, but of course it is actually a port of Freespace 2. Not sure why "Descent" is in the title at all???

I would guess in the context of the sentence it would be this:

Quote:
exempli gratia (e.g.) for the sake of example Usually shortened in English to 'for example' (see citation signal). Often confused with id est (i.e.).[3] Exempli gratia, 'for example', is commonly abbreviated 'e.g.'; in this usage it is sometimes followed by a comma, depending on style.[4]

Sorry Nexus

There is no way - I repeat No way that Freespace or Heretic II works with OS4.1 Update 2

Have you tried it recently?

I think that's what he is talking about. IIRC it wasn't finished and didn't seem to work that well when I tried. I think we went back to the original version which wasn't perfect but worked better! Both would crash in the end I'd say.

Sorry to say, Mikey is right, Freespace hasn't worked since Update 2.

For Freespace 2 follow this link below.

There's a version of Freespace 2 that can run Freespace 1 data files with the new engine, maybe someone could port that?

After Freespace 2 it should be easy. Kiero ported it to MorphOS around the same time Freespace 2 was done (5 years ago or-so)

Although not sure if that works with amiga version datafiles...

I thought the same thing at first. Also thought the screenshot looked a bit advanced for Descent 2. Then I finally got it after a few minutes of having decided not to care. :)

EG meant for example.

AND

I have the full version of Freespace, with the downloads from Hyperions website.

I have the full version of shogo, with the CD fix written, but shogo kicks me out after 1 minute or 15 minute gameplay.
Then I have to restart the game.

Heretic 2, is worse for wear, hard to get this title to stay in game moreso then Shogo.

I only wish one of my games from Hyperion worked so I could play it.

Cheers
