@mothra DAT importer script fixed, new multi-CD variants imported
@mothra The importer got confused about how TOSEC/Redump catalog multi-CD games. So basically, each CD got their own variant. You can see that on the edit section for this game. I've disabled those invalid variants, and will either tweak the importer, or manually create proper two-disc variants for the (few) games where this is an issue!
(I put a TODO-comment here earlier so I wouldn't forget)
Trivia Pursuit CDTV:
There is still no TOSEC Variant anymore.
Database Bug or on purpose?
Redump: CD32 per forum link! Redump: CDTV....No, only if Redump.org is online again, there are server troubles at the moment.
Tosec...are everywhere to find
If have 100.000 Roms and Images for any kind of system, i know where to find them. FSUAE is the best thing for Amiga out there, i was waiting for such a front-end/Emulator .... many years! No to sound rude but...
Humans 3 & Heroquest II CD32 are still missing EXISTING REDUMP Variants (I HAVE) in the FSUAE Database! I only want to point that out!
not to sound rude or something. but tosec and redump is by far the easiest to obtain collections on the web.
Trivial Pursuit CDTV: TOSEC Variant is gone!
... la la la MISSING CD32 in FSUAE: - Humans 3 - Evolution - Lost in Time. (Europe) = Redump Version, there is no TOSEC! - HeroQuest II - Legacy of Sorasil (Europe) (En,Fr,De) = Redump Version, there is no TOSEC!
credits for screen 1&5 goes to @thundercato
TODO: Created merged variants for the two discs, not one variant per disc.
These mentioned Games are just a personal wishlist for missing games in the Database! I can't do something against that ... they randomly spawned in. :o)
I'm currently updating my CD32 Images... and then I will look through Database again to check the download links. Ok i will edit the variants.
@mothra Also, please consider adding questions or information regarding a specific game to the correct game page. That will help make discussions easier to follow
(PS: I'm not sure what your last list of games meant, "I Ludicrus", etc... ??)
@mothra And thank you for contributing
If you find dead links to downloadable games, please make an edit and set
download_page = (nothing) or to a valid link, if the link has changed!
BTTR has indeed been dead for a while (https://oagd.net/2015/02/21/removed-back2roots-org-download-links).
If there are variants with disks not found in TOSEC or from other available sources, feel free to edit the variant and set
publish = 0. Please also leave a comment in the discuss page for the game
Yes, the Cinemaware downloads are unfortunately gone
@mothra Game entry marked as disabled until there are valid variants.
Thank you for your hard work!
Xenon 2 Megablast CDTV: Broken Game Variants/ Version reported! If there is no working CD Image (The Boss's Version, Omega's Version, Tosec?!?) then put it out from the Database. If you scroll down the Game Selection will jump to the beginning again cause of broken Game info in Xenon 2 CDTV.
And another Thing:
Questions, Questions! 95 % Game Variants are complete in my Game Selection! As a completist its a no go! :o)
Keep it rolling!
I Ludicrus (1989)(Actual Screenshots),Computer Third Reich (1992)(Avalon Hill), Bismarck (1988)(PSS), SQRXZ II (Retro Guru) (v1.0), SQRXZ III (Retro Guru) (v1.0), Thunderboy (1988)(Rainbow Arts), Warlock the Avenger (1991)(Millennium)
@mothra Thanks, turns out to be a bug in FS-UAE Launcher. Model is not currently set to CDTV when game platform is CDTV. I'll fix this for the next versions
TODO: According to Toni Wilen:
If I remember correctly, this game only works with CDTV infrared remote control set in mouse mode (dpad moves the mouse). It can't be controlled using joystick or normal mouse.
TODO: The Ten of Ten version needs the "Comms & Networking" CD from this compilation as a "boot" CD for Team Yankee. http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=318342&postcount=3
It´s Works with Team Yankee T01 Mode1 2048 (CDTV)
Can't start this game with various CDTV settings. Maybe someone else can have a look?
I received a different image from Retro-Nerd and will have another look tomorrow
Real cover just appeared yesterday on HOL
It's listed under S because 'Die' is like the English 'The'.
Why this game isn't in alfabetical list of CDTV title?
I've tried more config, swap port but control in this game is problematic. See this discussion
Credits for the last two screenshots goes to Retro-Nerd
No idea how to control this game Any hints welcome
Fixed viewport and uploaded new screenshots
Uploaded the Global Chaos cover. Unless somebody finds a better scan.
There was 16-pixel black bar on bottom of every screenshot which I cropped away. I tried with viewport= * * 400 = * * 384 but then the title screens were cropped too. What would be correct way to set it up? Or is that black bar intended and does it have any function?
TODO: Automatic viewport is too wide.
It does? Hmm, truth be told, I haven't looked into CDTV controls properly. Perhaps the remote really simply sends numpad key events somehow (or perhaps this game simply supports both for convenience while developing it )
Wow, it seems numpad 3 works for picking up and numpad 2 for dropping items. And numpad 1 for pulling items. So it is playable after all
TODO: It seems you need the CDTV remote with the numeric pad to perform many actions (http://hol.abime.net/1186/manual). FS-UAE does not support this properly yet, so only CDTV games which can use simple joystick / mouse will work properly
(The button for picking up stuff is button '3' on the controller it seems).
I should be able to pick up objects on this game, but what is the key for that?
Thanks for the mapping Didn't work here for A and B though, but the mystery what is needed is solved anyway.
For CD32 controller, use the keys C, X, D, S (also Z, A and Return). Right ctrl is an alias to C (red).
What are the default keyboard mappings for the other 3 buttons? Can't find it in the docs.
I discused this some time ago with Frode. As workaround you can set the game controller type to CD32 joypad.
How can I map the 'A' and 'B' button on the CDTV remote controller ( http://www.richardlagendijk.nl/foto/cip/joystick_cdtv_remote_01.jpg )?
I would say 640x622 is barely good enough!
Better cover uploaded, but it's still only 640x622 pixels.
You doesn't must do all byself! Have fun with the games
Must crop screen grabs and fix viewport later. I am playing through some games with my mate, so don't want to spend time in photoshop right now :O)
I recropped to remove black border on right side. Also added viewport configuration key to fix centering/cropping when playing.
TODO: Well, the HOL entry suggested that the game was available in multiple languages, so I moved the language setting to the specific variant instead of the game entry (in case other variants for other languages are added later). But it is also possible that this TOSEC disc also supports several languages (must find out how to save the CDTV language in the CDTV menu and I'll check).
This game was never seperately released. HOL: This special, graphically identical version is available on GLOBAL CHAOS CDTV compilation ONLY.
Find a better cover.
Hi lomdav. I repaired your cover a little bit
Non-ASCII character problem is fixed.
Problems with special characters in the database...
