I've decided to release my latest port, while waiting for the C4 results:

It's RAW, an interpreter for Another World (http://www.mobygames.com/game/dos/out-of-this-world) game data, so you can play it on your Sega Saturn.

This port is not part of the contest (i coded it in the last weeks), so i thought that releasing it would bring no harm :)


You can get it from here:

http://rapidshare.com/files/283189810/raw_saturn_beta.zip.html

Source code included.


Some notes:

* It doesn't include game files as it would be illegal redistributing them.

* I've tested it mostly on real hardware, so i cannot assure how well it beheaves on emulators

* Should work OK at 50hz, but 60hz is much much better imho :)

* It's BETA, even though the game seems to work pretty well.


UPDATE:

I've uploaded RAW for Saturn BETA2. Here are the news in this version:

Code:
* Sound mixing on slave SH cpu

* Vertical screen centering

* PAL/NTSC specifing timing fixes

You can download it from here.


Additional infos and notes in the included README, enjoy everyone!

Amazing job Hkz :bigthumb:

The games run really well on Saturn. Your Saturn specific source code looks great and could be reused on more ports.

Interesting release :)

I don't have the game, but I'll definitely take a look at the source code ...

I love Flashback :)

I spent countless hours on it when it came out ...

You're on the way to create something similar to ScummVM but on Saturn (and for Delphine games :biggrin:) that's great !

yeah, flashback is a great game imho.

Anyway i need to correct you: i just ported the engines, not written them :)

The original author (cyx) must get full credit for that!

He is the author of RAW too, and being REminiscence (the Flashback engine) structure very similar, i had an easy time adapting my code.

Woops, sorry about that ... I missed the whole 'port' part :owned:

Is "great port of a great software" sounding better ? :ninja:

I tried to locate the correct version of Another world with matching MD5 but with no success :( There are always bank01 and memlist.bin that have different MD5, and sometimes 2 or 3 more bank files.

I didn't try all the copies I found (17 in total) so maybe they will work, or we need the exact same copy than yours ?

They should work, probably those are just different revisions of the game.

The important thing is that the resources are not badly hacked :)

Hello people.


I can't download the beta 2, I have this message from rapidshare:



Error


This file is neither allocated to a Premium Account, or a Collector's Account, and can therefore only be downloaded 10 times.


This limit is reached.


To download this file, the uploader either needs to transfer this file into his/her Collector's Account, or upload the file again. The file can later be moved to a Collector's Account. The uploader just needs to click the delete link of the file to get further information.



Can you upload some other host like megaupload or mediafire for example?


I will make a mirror in my site too if you want.


Thank you, good work!

And this is why I hate rapidshare. It is not so rapid now is it.
