Still mess at home and will definitely be doing some indie stuff at some point whether for profit or not.

Homebrew for the Turbo?  :pray:

each project was 20 weeks...Just two [people] on each project.
I'm officially impressed. That's a new game roughly every 6 months.... Wow....
I never realized the development timelines were that short. I always figured a project per year...

there were no compilers back then. C wasn't really that big

And all in assembler.  Doubly impressive :)


Wlecome aboard the crazy train. Looking foward to anything you come up with :)

Hey, when you're getting paid to sit and do this, it's easier to crank stuff out! :D

Yeah, westwood, are you going to make some turbo stuff again? :D

We've got easier ways to make music now.   Way easier!

Just as a quick update, I have dug out the disks but cannot get anything to read at the moment. I do suspect however that this is not down to the disks but down the my knackered old 3.5 drive that is creaking away desperately..

I'm going to go to the local parts supplier this weekend to get a new one so hopefully things will go a lot better when I drag that out.

I think I will end up putting the data on a public section of my ftp site as I also have a lot of source code for other old systems to upload as well.

sweet.

Thanks for the update!

I was actually going to post to ask about how this was going, so you beat me to it.

If you're having issues finding a 3.5" drive, feel free to ask - there's lots of folks around here who could probably lend one.

Sounds like you are in the UK, if so and you still need a drive send me a PM with you details and  I  will get one out to you as I have a stack of these.

On a side-note:  Were Code Monkeys Ltd. not also involved in GunBoat / Turrican ?

Comrade thanks for the update and I enjoyed reading your responses to all those questions I bugged you with.

Good luck resurrecting the old floppies/drives.

'Tis the season for resurrection.

Hi All, well after much pain (and three broken floppy drives!). I now have the stuff I needed and will talk with the Internet Archive guys to get the source available on-line. If I have no luck I will probably just put them on my own website for the time being.

The two games for the pc engine were indeed Turrican/Gunboat so I have an archive for each. (Not to mention a lot of Gameboy source as well....now which is the best GB dev site I wonder..)

Cheers

Awesome news!  I'd be happy to mirror the files and I'm sure others here would be willing as well.

What about putting your code onto GitHub?  It would be a nice publicly-accessible backup, not to mention an easy way to clone or fork your code.
I'm not sorry about this, as I'm not sorry about ANY attack by the goverrats.

Very awesome news here, i just found this thread and would love to look at the source code for the old games! love that stuff.

Also to westwood68 if you need it I have a USB floppy drive I would be willing to load ya to read the disks if your having problems. Just an offer because your trying to help out the fans by giving the source code out it would be the least i could do.
