Re: Places where you can get stuck

Fun idea. Well, this is certainly an unintended usage of the game! :) Someone on the PoPUW forum once compared PoP to chess. You know, with many variations from only a few pieces. Then trying to get stuck on purpose is somewhat like a Fairy chess problem ? :) Another "useless but amusing"...

Re: Integer overflow bug

I was testing this , when... The guard died on the button and then slipped on the edge and fell into the wall ! :shock: As you can see, the button on which he died is still stuck. What. I should record a video of this, if I can ever do this again... where is the guard.png EDIT: I could do it again. ...

Re: PoP1 SEGA Genesis cheat codes

It unpauses the game with (certain?) hits though, so it's primarily useful to do a general check whether it reacts to anything. When the game recognizes a valid code, it unpauses itself. Except in two cases: * "kill guard" will not close the paused menu if there is no guard to kill. * &qu...

Places where you can get stuck

I was searching for places in PoP1 DOS where you *need* Ctrl+A, i.e. you can't finish the level, and can't die either. Just to clarify, this does not really have any practical value. It's only for amusement. :) I looked only at the original levels, and without using cheats. Otherwise it would be too...

Re: PoP1 SEGA Genesis cheat codes

I've used a script to check the US version for all combinations. It doesn't react to any of them. Oh, yes, xdotool. I remember you already used it here: http://forum.princed.org/viewtopic.php?p=12072#p12072 (Just to be sure, did you also check that the Europe version does react?) Again we see how d...

Re: How to activate Amiga cheats?

I *might* have found why do many sources say that level skip is "Caps Lock+L". Here: http://popuw.com/images/magazines/amigacomputing/095.jpg (bottom right) It says "hold down Caps Shift and press L". (Caps Shift, not Caps Lock.) Now, the ZX Spectrum really did have a "Caps ...

Re: PR on GitHub

Some instructions to compile?? and no build solution files? I used Dev-C++: https://sourceforge.net/projects/orwelldevcpp/ With Dev-C++ you need to open this file: src\dev-cpp\pr.dev . If you use another IDE then you'll need to create a new project and add all the *.c and *.h files to the project b...

Re: Various

I recently realized that the PoP1 for SNES ending animations, after the ending text, are customly generated in real-time, using the mod's rooms. For instance, with Hell of a Palace , the prince drinks a potion instead of picking up a sword. I haven't checked, but I guess this means some mods might ...

Re: PoP1 SEGA Genesis cheat codes

In case the ROM hides these, I could manually try combinations. If it's the same as the EU version, there are only (3^8=) 6561 combinations possible, right? :) "only" eh? You could, but it would be quite long and boring... :) Instead I looked into the disassembly. (Europe version) I found...

Re: Various

Found a bit of info about an old PoP fan website. [...] The website was hosted by GameSpy, accessible via Poplegacy.com, and the last version that was online is at Archive.org . That site has some fun oddities: The poll on the left (on every page) is the same as one of the past polls of PoPUW: http...

Nice! :)
I see there can be different torches in the background, and the mods page has some "banners".

Re: there is a way to extract pop2 resource??

Moved topic to PR forum. After that I get an "XML parsing error (-14)", but maybe this is also related to paths (didn't look into it yet)? That's because the XML parser of PR can't parse opening tags without attributes. In pop2.xml there is a <folder> tag. If I put a space before the "...

Re: there is a way to extract pop2 resource??

In the Makefile, Linux requires some \ to be /, namely for .bitfield.o 5x and for .text.o 6x. Thanks, I fixed it now (in my copy). After that I get an "XML parsing error (-14)", but maybe this is also related to paths (didn't look into it yet)? I'll look into that. About uploading to GitH...
