A bunch of great tunes with GZH #32 and #33!

July 23, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image Grazey of PHF doesn't want to stop his brilliant work. So he is just coming to produce two new disks at the same time, that contains 282 SNDH files! SNDH files are a unified format of ST musics, that can be played with SND Player (ST/Falcon), DeliPlayer (PC), WinJam (PC), Audio Overload (MacOSX).

On both disks you will find following composers:
• 505 • Mate • Stax • Tangens • Tao • Taylor • Tebirod • Techno • Thomas • Tinman • Titan • Tonge • Toodeloo • Tyan • Ultimatum • Viking

More exciting directory is problaby the one with TAO tunes (but also Stax, who composed a lot of great tunes). According to Grazey:
137 marvellous Tao compositions cram this disk. From the tiny 900 byte tunes to the massive 20 minute UMD 8730 epic. Quite a few of these tunes have been modified to fit in with the SNDH standard. Just Buggin tunes all used nasty shadow regs. Tao's sample drum songs also needed to be changed to use other MFP timers.

So don't wait! Grab both disks on the official PHF website.

News illustration image According to Leonard, here are the new features of the emulator:

* MFP emulation core totally re-written ! Now support cycle accurate reading ( Overscan Demos by Paulo Simoes )
* "Line disabling" technic emulated ( Overscan demos by Paulo Simoes )
* "StopLine" fixed ( B.I.G demo by TEX low border fixed )

* SainT does not take 99% of CPU when running in background in windowed mode.
* Fixed cycle timing when reading in FC00 ( thanks to Paulo Simoes )
* Low border adds now 45 graphics lines instead of 43


We have tested the Overscan Demos, they work fine! Also the music of Braindamage sounds very good, despite of some issues with the display.

Go to Leonard website to get SainT v1.70.

DragonFlight is here!

July 16, 2004 by Brume

News illustration image DragonFlight is a mythic game made by Thalion (the first one!). Until today, it was unplayable with emulator because of the protection used. Also it has never been cracked, so only the lucky owner of the original game could play it.

The game has been finally published on Thalion group! This version has been redone by Udo Fischer, the main coder of the game, also known under the nickname of -me- into the famous crew The EXceptions. Thanks to him! Only both intros seems to be missing (the one with the Thalion logo, and the other with the red dragon). All other parts of the game are here.
DragonFlight now works with Steem 3.1 and 2MB of RAM. Use following instruction to run the game:

How to play this version with Steem:
- install Steem V3.1 or higher (if available)
- use a TOS version 1.04 or higher
- select at least 2 MB memory!
- select colour monitor
- unzip the file to a folder of your name
- mount this folder as drive E: inside of Steem
- select DRAGON_D.PRG (deutsch/german), DRAGON_E.PRG (english) or DRAGON_F.PRG (francais/french) to start playing


. Download [url=../newsattach/Dragonflight]DragonFlight for Steem 3.1[/url] (may work with a real machine).
. Visit Thalion webshrine for more information about the game.
. Discuss on the forum about installation issues and various topics.

Random review

Disc really is something else! I had never heard of this game before, but after reading some comments at the LGD I gave it a shot! Well, this is one of the best "futuristic sport" games on the ST. Those French guys did it again!
