Software News : FREESPACE - THE GREAT WAR - NEW EXECUTABLE FOR OS4.1 Update 2
Posted by Mikey_C on 2010/11/15 19:08:19 (1714 reads) News by the same author

Hyperion Entertainment is pleased to announce the immediate availability for download of a substantially reworked AmigaOS 4.x version of Freepsace: The Great War courtesy of Peter Gordon. The file is available in our download section. Note that you must have registered Freespace copy in order to download the file.

EDIT - Does anyone know if there are any Amiga dealers who have stocks of this game left?

This is a must have game. If you've played any space combat sim in your life, I can tell you nothing comes close to this.

Worth EVERY PENNY!

(No, Hyperion are not paying me to say that!)

Glad to be of service!

If anyone is interested in what changed from the OS3.x/WarpOS version, its basically:

* Compiled for AmigaOS 4.1
* Changed joystick code for AmigaInput
* Brand new ReAction GUI and installer
* Video playback routines rewritten from scratch
* Quite a few bugfixes
* Some optimisations
* Included a stack cookie
* Fixed a bug in the software texturemapper

@Xeron

i haven't downloaded the update yet so, please, don't complain me for the question..

Still the game uses software render or it can start in hardware render?

Edit:

Tried, it runs very smooth in hw render!!! Thanks you did a very good job now i can play the first and the second episode

@Mickey_c

i totally agree with you

@Xeron

OT

have you had the time to check Quake II for that freeze that happened to me when playing?.. i sended you a GR about that problem..

I have only done the first few training missions but it seems to run fine and fairly responsive on my 533Mhz SAM.

 Re: FREESPACE - THE GREAT WAR - NEW EXECUTABLE FOR OS4.1 ...
Descent Freespace is no longer compatible with the latest Radeon, Warp3D, minigl and AOS4.1FE.

I get a DSI after the first movie and after clicking "ignore" sometimes the second movie from the intro plays till the end, and sometimes I get a freeze. It doesn't matter because right afterwards I get a blinking screen with nothing on it. Using software acceleration presents a game picture with completly distorted colors after the second intro movie. I also tried various configuration like no joystick or reduce memory for graphics and sound and this got me as far as the blinking game screen.

I'm using a X1000 with Radeon R9 270 (Southern Islands).
