Missing games on NVG

Missing games on NVG

Post by Nich Campbel » Mon, 17 Jun 2002 03:37:56



I've managed to compile a list of games that are missing on the NVG games
archive, and which despite my best efforts, I cannot find for love nor
money. I was hoping that someone in this group may own at least one of
these games (either on cassette or disc), so I thought I'd give it a try
in my desperation. I'll upload this file to NVG soon. Any suggestions for
updating this file are welcome, too! (By the way - if a game is marked
with an asterisk (*), it means I'm not sure if it was released on the
Amstrad CPC.)

I certainally got a copy of that. I transfered it to disk too, but my
copy of it is so messy (I'm not sure if I've transfered it over to my
PC though!).

However I would still have the covertape for which it was on, if
nobody else comes foward about this then I'll just have to try to find
it.

However if someone does have a copy already running for Nich, then do
send it in to him.

If you'd like I'd also still have a copy of the cheat mode
(somewhere!), but I think there was also a cheat mode in the game
itself too.

Regards,
Ross.

Actually, I have Penguins, and the cheat mode, on disc as well - I just
can't transfer it to a DSK file right now. I also have Who's Afraid of the
Balrog? transferred to disc, but for some really stupid reason, the
program just won't run properly when I save it as an individual file,
which is not run from the standard Amstrad Action covertape menu. I saved
it with start address &40, length &whatever, execution address &1F2C
(which is standard for all GAC adventures), and it doesn't work. Ho hum.

Anyway, I'm more interested in getting hold of the missing Codemasters and
Alternative games...

Yes, well I've in pretty much the same position about transferning
Penguins to DSK as well. I've got the Amstrad setup with the approate
drives, but will need to work on one of my PC's with the 5 1/4" drive
before I start transferning stuff.

It's a pity too, because I came so close to getting Captain Dynamo, DJ
Puff Volcanic Eruption & Steg the Slug. I placed them as alternitive
titles way back when I made a mail order at O.J. Software.

Ross.

If I recall correctly, they weren't available on any of Codemasters'
Quattro compilations, although one of the titles I am looking for (Wacky
Darts) may only be available on the Quattro Fantastic compilation.

As far as I know they didn't. I would of being just orderning them as
individual games at the time (out of their catalogue).

Hi,
Thanks to the guy who put Dynamite Dan on ftp NVG, I was finally able to
beat the game after nearly 5 years of playing it.

Could someone please upload Shogun (by Virgin) to NVG cause I realy miss
this game.

I have an Amstrad Web Page now , although it's not much at the moment.

Thanks, See ya,

Mex
