#11140 source code for JSW

Posted by Spider on 21 June 2019 - 01:59 PM

Just seen and approved it, thanks Norman. :)

 

Its generated its own 'support/comments' topic as most downloads submissions do, so we can either use this topic here you've started or that auto generated one if you prefer. I'll just simply close the unused one to prevent duplication/confusion.

#11062 New tune

Posted by Spider on 19 May 2019 - 10:37 AM

Correct! Hip hop hip Hooray!!

:) I thought about posting an erm 'sky body' and an 'item of clothing' but figured that might give the game away a bit too soon.

 

Its a very good rendition. :thumbsup:

Has no-one spotted this yet?

I remember looking at the time. :) There are so many unique and innovative features in this game (which need more promoting imo!) that it is difficult to say exactly. :unsure:




#10923 Vote for your favourite JSW mod

Topic on World Of Spectrum:
 

As part of the 35th anniversary of Jet Set Willy event at this year’s Play Expo in Manchester on Saturday May 4th, there will be an audience vote to decide their favourite mod of the game. Paolo, the director of the film Willy: 48k About a Legend which will be screened on the day has shortlisted the following 5. As this forum is full of informed JSW gamers, plenty of whom will hopefully be at the event, I wanted to put this up here so maybe you can be having a think. Cheers. Please share as you see fit!

#10894 [File] Manic Miner: A ten-cavern challenge

Posted by Spider on 22 April 2019 - 07:31 PM

File Name: Manic Miner: A ten-cavern challenge

File Submitter: Spider

File Submitted: 20 Apr 2019

File Category: JSWMM Releases

System: Sinclair
Original Author(s): M.Smith
Third Party Author(s): Andy Ford

 

The initial idea of this game was to take a different twist on the release of the "Manic Miner - Hi-Score Challenge" game, which, although was reasonably successful in itself, did have some quite limiting factors, namely being forced to either POKE or reload to change the cavern, which meant multiple cavern completion times were not possible.

 

With this in mind, Andy decided to make a cut-down version of “Manic Miner”, featuring a mere ten caverns. For the sake of traditionalism the first and last caverns, (those obviously being “Central Cavern” and “The Final Barrier”) were kept.

 

It was decided to simply create two other, new versions of it based on what we had, so we would have a total of three games. The new ones being an ”easy” version and a ”hard” version. The thoughts here were to make the ”easy” version a little bit more player- friendly than the original and the hard version slightly more trouble for the player.

 

More details of the changes and details between each version amongst other things are in the readme file.

 

The download .zip contains a standard .tap file of the game as well as a more detailed readme.txt file

 

We hope you enjoy this game as much as we did putting it together and look forward to seeing your high-scores, reading any comments and/or feedback on it. We feel it is an interesting slight twist to the original in offering the choice of skill levels to play at.

File Name: Jet Set Willy 25-100

File Submitter: Spider

File Submitted: 20 Apr 2019

System: Sinclair
Original Author(s): M.Smith
Third Party Author(s): Andy Ford

 

The initial idea of this small game occurred to Andy one boring weekend afternoon. It was to make a mini "25 items and 25 rooms" variant of JSW, but after trying this out, in reality it did not seem that much fun. Thoughts then turned to have a grand total of 100 items spread around 25 modified rooms. This involved much demolition and rebuilding of Willy's original mansion to accomplish sensibly!

 

Some of the conventional paths to reach certain items are slightly altered, although the game room layouts are (broadly speaking at least) not too far from the original game.

 

The download .zip contains a standard .tap file of the game as well as a more detailed readme.txt file

 

We hope you enjoy this game as much as we did putting it together and look forward to reading any comments and/or feedback on it.

#10847 JSW German Release

Posted by Spider on 19 April 2019 - 10:01 AM

The game code block is identical to the English release, the CRC confirms this when looking at just the raw 32768 length block of code. It matches the later (proper) release of JSW, the one with the in-game tune of "If I Were a Rich Man" , whereas the early (first preproduction almost) release of JSW had the MM in-game tune of "In the Hall of the Mountain King"

 

Its interesting the way the .tzx was saved actually as it was sampled directly from the tape without the usual tools hence when you view it in ZXE it shows as raw data rather than tapefiles themselves. :)

 

In summary the 'difference' is limited to the actual inlay language/wording itself then, the tape 'content' is the same. :) This is not to diss it in any way, it is very much worth preserving! I would not mind one for my collection simply as is different, the same way I have a 'multiformat' Amstrad/Spectrum JSW2 tape. :thumbsup:




#10846 Super Spectrum World - JSW remake incorporating lots of games

Posted by Spider on 18 April 2019 - 07:56 PM

At lease twice now. :)

 

Creating an offline version was very kind.  Thank you.

 

Sometimes I travel and don't have internet access.  I like to have quick-access games on my laptop for just such occasions.

 

Thanks again.

 

I concur, similar for me but I do not currently have myself connected 24/7 (As currently I have to pay per GB) , so I tend to work offline then connect as and when I need to. Having it available and running without outbound connections being required is excellent.




#10845 JSW German Release

Posted by Spider on 18 April 2019 - 07:48 PM

Vielen Dank :)

 

EDIT... I think the game is the same the text is too, the 'redundant' code at the end may be different but I've not had chance to look into this yet.

 

^ Please don't make me try to remember how to post that in German! :( :D
