Re: What is the best version? What are the diffrences?

I looked at the results of my earlier accuracy tests: http://forum.princed.org/viewtopic.php?p=14140#p14140 There is an interesting thing if we separate consoles and computers: Computers: Of the 14 versions, 8 pass and 6 fail. (57% pass) Or if we ignore the unofficial ports (ATM Turbo, C64, Enterpri...

Re: Best version to play this???

So I'm currently playing this on the Snes. And for some reason I'm not feeling it. Feel like a lot of cheap deaths. This normal? Also the music is horrible... The SNES port of PoP2 is horrible indeed. See "The reasons why the SNES version sucks" here: http://popuw.com/pop2snes.html If not it the pc...

Re: Forum spam

Therefore I think spammers should not only be blocked by IP, email address and hostname. Their accounts, including all posts attached to them, should also be removed. How do I do that? Can moderators even do that, or only admins? EDIT: By the way, it seems that the user profile page does not show w...

Re: Apple II port to BBC Master computer

I am currently working on the flickers. Unfortunately I cannot (currently) afford to double-buffer the screen as I'm using a 15K 4bpp buffer whilst the original Apple II used 2x 8K buffers. I could drop down to 2x 2bpp buffers but it would be nice to have a more colourful screen in lieu of the reso...

Editing guard's voices

I got this PM: Hey, I am currently working on a mod for PoP on Snes and I am using your tool wich I really like a lot. There is a request however i would like to ask: In the hacks setting, you offer the option to choose the voice type of guards. But is it actually possible to make it the other way a...

Further developments:
Ryan marked it as a duplicate, but my bug is still present.
So I attached a recording and some analysis.

Re: Apple II port to BBC Master computer

Ah, another new PoP port for old hardware! (after the Commodore 64 version) I tried this. It plays like the original except for the flickers. I guess you already know, but the hit points are missing from the screen. (it will crash if you trigger an unimplemented gameplay feature) I found a crash on ...

Re: Runen (1996)

I tried the game. Lots of things to write about... General: The game is quite slow-paced (especially when climbing), so in DOSBox, you should configure a single key to the fast-forward function. The default Alt+F12 is quite hard to press while playing, and if you press Alt while running, the "prince...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VyhmbEjs9A I like what he says at 2:03-2:13: It used to be the privilege of computer graphics researchers to play video games during work hours. But apparently, scientists in machine learning also caught up in this regard. Way to go! :) From the paper : To our knowl...

@printsofpersia: You can try this yourself with this level editor: https://www.popot.org/level_editors.php?editor=Pr1SnesLevEd There are similar level designs on level 9 (before the shadow), on level 11 (the first pit you meet), and on level 12.

Re: Forum spam

It looks like it's also possible to ban by hostname. To specify several different IPs or hostnames enter each on a new line. To specify a range of IP addresses separate the start and end with a hyphen (-), to specify a wildcard use “*”. I tried to ban node-*-*-*-*.alliancebroadband.in because the IP...

Re: PoP videos / images

Sword fighting is supposedly by "E. Matskevich". Mentioned here and here , among other places. The (other) black and white drawings are by Kozlik Mozlik a.k.a. Сергей Козлов. Are these all illustrations or covers of the "Prince of Central Planning" novel? ~~~ PoP also at about 0:29 in this YT video...

Re: Forum spam

Assuming the spammers have a finite number of IP addresses, maybe this forum becomes a less interesting target if they see IP addresses are being banned. The question is, do they see that their IP address is banned? They register a new account from a new IP address for every post. They might also b...
