Hi guys,

 

  I started a Manic Miner conversion for the Acorn Atom but got stuck in the collision routines.

After a lot of unsuccessful attemps, I decided to stop this conversion for now.

 

However ... I do like converting games so I started to convert Jet Set Willy.

This is looking very promising and the game is already working.

There are still a few things to do like adding sound, and decent testing.

 

The animation is looking terrible on Youtube but is good on a real Atom

 

Greetings

Kees van Oss

That's looking quite good :) I'm impressed.

Good job, Kees! :) I am always impressed by people being able to do such things, as they are well beyond my abilities.

 

Two comments on the non-technical side. The spelling of "Jet Set Willy" at the very beginning of the scrolling message: "Jetset" - is this for any special reason? I've seen "Jet Set" spelled as two separate words, both starting with a capital letter, or "Jet-Set" with a hyphen, but not the way it is in your conversion.

 

The other thing is also about spelling. The first letter in the first word in room names seems to be always small, while the remaining words in room names begin with capitals. Is there any special reason for this?

 

Just thought I would give you some "constructive" feedback. Good luck with the development of "Jet Set Willy" and I hope one day you will be able to complete the "Manic Miner" conversion as well  :) .

 

And if you need someone for playtesting, let me know!

 

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

 

  I didn't change the original text so it probably is introduced in the Electron conversion, but this is easy to change.

 

 

Well ..... you spotted one of the TODO things on my list ;)

For some reason the first roomname letter is small in the Atom version while in the Electron version it is a capital.

Haven't found the bug yet but first I have to find out how the roomname encryption works to adjust this.

 

I will release this version soon for testing.

Thanks for the "constructive" feedback ... :)

 

Greetings

Kees

Hi guys,

 

  Jet Set Willy is ready and published on the Startsot site.

 

You can download an Atom emulator here: http://stardot.org.u...t=9518&p=120911 (Atomulator v1.24.zip)

And Jet Set Willy can be downloaded here: http://stardot.org.u...=10392&p=125555 (JSW.zip)

 

To get it running in Atomulator:
 
- Create a JSW directory in the MMC directory
- Upzip JSWRUN and JSWCODE into the JSW directory
- Start Atomulator
- Type: *CWD JSW and then *JSWRUN to start the game
 
Have fun!!!!!
 
Greetings
Kees
