Spheres of Chaos

Post by tlsa1 »

Spheres of Chaos is available from the author at http://www.spheresofchaos.com/p/download.php

That release isn't 32-bit compatible. Is it a good candidate for working with ADFFS? Or perhaps it could be recompiled for native support of modern machines?

I've not spoken to the author to see if they purchased the rights, if not, as it was previously a commercial release permission will need to be given by the rights holder before we can release a floppy image.

That said, I believe I allocated an ID for the newer version so it may be possible to implement a boot script to get it running under ADFFS and provide instructions on how to use it. I'll take a look later in the week and let you know.

OK, cool.

The best would be if the author still has the source so a clean 32-bit version can be produced. :)

I've taken a look, it uses SharedCLib which has yet to be implemented. I need to resume coding APCS support, so will make a start soon.

EDIT: Actually it's not going to work, the JIT supports 8mb of RAM max and the version of this game for download requires 11mb.

EDIT2: As of ADFFS 2.72 the version of Spheres of Chaos that requires 11mb of RAM is supported
