Re: (My) Interview with John Croudy (A8 Druid).

Thanks. It was nice to hear those again. I wouldn't mind if the games themselves got released too. I never thought any of that would ever be seen by anyone except me and my friends.

Re: (My) Interview with John Croudy (A8 Druid).

John: I wonder... there are a couple of chipmusics in the ASMA Atari 8bit music archive... they are credited to you with a questionmark... can you confirm that you did these musics too? Asteroidz and Munching Mandy Oh my God! Those were private projects that I did at home in 1983-1984 before I had ...

Re: (My) Interview with John Croudy (A8 Druid).

Thanks for your work on those games conversions, it seems i played to all those you took part in. Especially Silkworm, with its great and indeed arcade faithful gameplay. Also someone who built a homemade analog synth is automatically a great person. ;) Ha ha -- a crazy person more like. Thanks for...

Re: (My) Interview with John Croudy (A8 Druid).

Thanks :) No, I didn't work on the ST version of SWIV. I think by that time I was working on Indy Heat for the Amiga. I did write the end-of-game reactor explosion sequence for SWIV. I think the same code may have been used in both versions.

Re: (My) Interview with John Croudy (A8 Druid).

Thanks guys. I got pretty depressed last night mulling over that blasted blitter :oops: Anyway, I don't have anything left of the ST. No machine, no disks, no printouts. As for the Atari 800, my sister, until recently, had all my equipment and disks, but she sold the lot on eBay about a year ago. Ho...

Re: (My) Interview with John Croudy (A8 Druid).

I'm devastated! My apologies for letting the Atari community down. I had no idea that my games could have been so much faster. Looks like I really messed up there. Perhaps I should have made more effort to get proper docs. On that day when I decided the blitter wasn't worth the trouble, I did wonder...

Re: (My) Interview with John Croudy (A8 Druid).

Hello everyone, I just thought I'd respond to the comments about my attitude towards the ST and its blitter. First, I'd like to mention that the operating system was never involved in any of my games on the 8 or 16 bit Ataris. The first few lines of code in the game switched the OS off and took over...
