colonial conquest for TT and Falcon

Postby atari_old_fan » 31 May 2010, 14:03

Hi all,
i am living in france.
:D i am, as some of you, an old fan of colonial conquest.
in the period 1987-1995 i made hundreds of games with it, sometime from friday evening till sunday.
I have bought the english atari ST version and after that the french atari ST version and still have the original boxes.

the french ST version was at the resolution 320*200.
i made a TT version that is 640*400 or 480 (i don't remenber).
so you were able to see all the map in height and half in length, and less scrolling.
for falcon i made a 1280*900 version, permitting to have the full map in full screen.
to display it, you were obliged to use non standard resolutions.

i also made 10 principals lands, adding to the six from original : spain , italy,...
are some of you interested by these versions (TT and FALCON) ?
all that work is from years 1987-1995 when i sold out my falcon.
the AI is from the 1.1 french version. So i have all the bugs mentionned by kroah.

:oops: my only disappointement : i have discovered this forum and community only yesterday.
i have played so many years alone and see that kroah made that i always wanted to do : a net version.

best regards.

Very interesting!
Did you tried your modification with the Hatari Emulator?
It can partially emulate TT/Falcon hardware.

I think all Colonial Conquest fans will be interested.

Can you post some screenshots? I know you've sold out your falcon, maybe one of your friend or the emulator can do it for you?

Of course, if you could share your disk images, or even some source codes, everyone will thank you for that.
Having myself struggled with the disassembled code of 4 different versions, every piece of code or information are welcomed.

If you want more feedbacks, i'll advise you to post a message on Atari-Forum.
There are a lot more people visiting the forum daily over there.

Cheers,
Kroah

I am very interested in these custom versions. Have they been contributed anywhere?

Unfortunately no.

Without explicit permission, it can't be posted on this forum.
You could try to send a PM to atari_old_fan, he may send you a working TT version.
