Apollo Team would like to share the first results from an internal project we started a few months ago.
This project is an experimental exercise to explore the possibilities and limitations of Apollo V4 Series.
We took upon ourselves the challenge to make a port of “Robin Hood - Legend of Sherwood” (RHLOS).

RHLOS is a great RPG Game from SpellBound released in 2002 and intended for Pentium PC’s (233Mhz/64Mb).

Current stage of the project is that we have succeeded in getting the Game somewhat up-and-running on V4.
The FPS is obviously not on the level that we would like it to be, but basic gameplay is already possible . . .

For Compiling we used the ApolloCrossDev setup for Linux which is another (beta) project from Apollo Team.
Graphics routines are changed from SDL based API’s to native Apollo Blit and Scroll routines, partly in ASM.
Sound routines are also rewritten and our now using Apollo Arne instead of the SDL routines.
There is still some work to be done on the mixer and effect routines, but we are confident to make that work also.

There is still a lot of work te be done to get RHLOS up to a level where it could be released in any form or shape.
But we share this first results with you with the intention to raise interests within the Amiga (development) community.
If you feel you have the skills and time to help us in this project, we are looking for you to join us !!! (please PM me on Discord @WillemDrijver).

And wouldn't it have been better to make a more modest and possible port?

No, it won’t, he is not using P96/CGX, and he is removing SDL.
this is rewrite to bang Vampire hardware. This is Vampire software, not Amiga software.
and it probably won’t be system friendly, most hardware banging software is not.
(Perhaps Amos is, and we know how well that works on AmigaONE.)

if is open source, there can be some load and save routine that can be usable.
