Help wanted for VirusZ and xvs.library

Help wanted for VirusZ and xvs.library

George Wittmann (formerly Hörmann) would like to make the source code of VirusZ and the xvs.library freely accessible as open source and asks for help from users of all new generation Amiga systems of the newer generation. As Georg writes in Aminet, he has done absolutely nothing on his Amiga for 15 years, but during that time he was asked again and again whether he would like to take the step that he has now decided to take.

Before that happens, VirusZ and the xvs.library for AmigaOS 4.x, AROS and MorphOS should be cleaned up and prepared. However, since he does not have any of these systems, he asks to run a small tool called MAA4SIC on the respective systems, which collects information about the users system. The output can be redirected to a file that should be sent manually to Georg via email. The email address can be found on Aminet, in the corresponding description of MAA4SIC:

King's Valley remake for the Amiga

Published 31.03.2021 - 11:47 by osz

No plans for the Easter holidays?

MA Software has created a remake, programmed in Blitz Basic, of the Konami classic King's Valley, published in 1985 for the MSX system and MS DOS, for the Amiga. The game belongs to the puzzle platformer genre.

The player the adventurer Vick through the maze of a pyramid, who is always on the lookout for hostile mummies and in search of jewels. He collects extras with which he can temporarily turn off his opponents but mummies are creepy stubborn, because they appear back after a short time. Thanks to the tools we can collect, our adventurer can dig his way through the maze to move forward. But be careful: Vick cannot always jump with full hands when danger threatens. The level is over, when the last jewel has been collected, then Vick can disappear through a door. There are a total of 15 pyramids to explore. [...]

Amiga Mouse Switch: An automatic mouse-/joystick-switch

Published 29.03.2021 - 10:43 by osz

The GitHub user Tebl recently published his solution for an automatic switch between a joystick and a mouse in his GitHub repository. Tebl describes the problem that many of us will be familiar with: You want to play a game with two people, but the mouse is often required in the first port during the boot process so that you can only change the plug later, after the boot process. If you then want to start another game with two players, the mess of cables starts all over again.

His approach provides for an adapter connected to port 1, to which the joystick and mouse are connected. The respective device is activated when the joystick or mouse button is pressed. No more mess of cables, it's that simple. The case is also elegantly resolved, provided that one can speak of a case here. An extra circuit board is manufactured in the same size, but without any conductor tracks, which is then fixed over the electronic components using nylon screws, nuts and spacers.

Super Delivery Boy is making progress

Published 28.03.2021 - 21:03 by osz

For some time now there has been a new Amiga game to be admired on, which is still under development, and Neeso Games, the developer of this game, allows everyone to participate in its progress. The title is called Super Delivery Boy. This platformer game is developed with the Scorpion Engine with pretty cute graphics that are a bit reminiscent of the Nintendo world and have a Japanese touch.

The game itself should run on an Amiga 500 with 1 MB RAM, but a slightly faster or accelerated Amiga is recommended.

A new version has been published yesterday (March 27, 2021), which contains many innovations, but of course also numerous bugs, because the game is still in development, as mentioned. More about the progress on the page. If you like, you can support the author there with a small, self-chosen donation and thus promote the development of the game. [...]
