Default Dave - My turn?

I'm preparing a complete package for Turrican II - The Final Fight
  • Archive: I uploaded the ISO months ago into the cellar, but a preinstalled version was needed to solve few problems. I've added details into the review. If possible I would like you to test if it works correctly.
  • Review: already into Grammar forums, there are so many Engrish obscenities
  • Music: I have the soundtrack in midi files, but we should check if Chris Huelsbeck (the author) still sells the CD. [edit]It seems still supported http://www.huelsbeck.com/ [/edit]
  • Boxshots: I have them, but few are missed, considering the rarity of the Dos version I would like to upload one taken from the net years ago (in German). Actually I don't remember where I took it, but probably the site is dead, can't find it anymore to ask for permission.
  • Manual: I have an amatorial .pdf convertion of the original manual, made by a certain T.R.Schmidt. There are credits on it, so it shouldn't be a problem to add, if added we could substitute it later with an original one. Let me know what you think.
  • Screenshots: I have done them, but I'm having problems with the resolution, don't know why but DosBox creates them with a resolution of 304x228 pixels instead of the default 320x200, do you know how can I solve this? I can modify them with Gimp/Photoshop but the result is not so nice...

FTP folder created and Archive uploaded as .zip file.

I've found the source of those rare boxshots, I'll send a mail for permissions.

P.s. can you test if the archive works for you?


*How to run the game* (Taken from review)
Quote:
This is a pre-installed version for DOSBox, so just follow these steps and you shouldn't have any problems.

You need to extract the archive into your DOSBox mounted C: folder.

Run DOSBox, and while you are at C:\> type TURRICAN to start.
You'll see a setup screen and invisible texts. From here, just press enter and the game will start.

In case you prefer the drag and drop system just use the TURRICAN.bat which you can find in the TURRICAN folder.

Configuration:
5000 cycles or more is enough.

I had a really positive answer about those extras from Mr. T.R.Smith, administrator of the site and author of the manual

I'll add credits to the review

I've just prepared the Intro video for YouTube, but I'm having problems with FTP, for unknown reasons I can't upload files.
Are you having similar problems?

The funny thing is that I'm using the main admin account, it worked for last updates, I guess it's something related to server change
I'll try using the common procedure.

Uncutted version of the Intro uploaded into YouTube folder.

It's a 24,4MB .zip file, around 5,36. It can be refined a bit.

Now I want to understand why the upload doesn't work with a full permission profile

I've modified screenshots manually because DosBox captured them with a resolution of 304x228 pixels instead of the default 320x200 pixels.
  • Archive   
  • Review   
  • Music   
  • Boxshots   
  • Manual

Remember to add this under the review:

A big thank you to Mr. T.R.Smith who gave us the permission to host rare extras!
