Amiga Online: VOTE: Jaguar XJ220 and Lotus Trilogy?
« on: December 30, 2007, 04:36:13 AM »

Fairly simple question, i would just like to know some other people's views.

Obviously the games are very similar, and pairing the likes of Indy Heat and Super-Off Road (despite having no actual connection) [WRONG!! - ed.] seems to have been popular, so perhaps rather than Jaguar XJ220 being all alone,  should it sit alongside the excellent Lotus games?

I would say so, they are almost identical in every way.

I voted for NO WAY!  Now, tbh I don`t feel as strongly as that implies, if there had been a "I ain't fussed, but I would suggest XJ220 deserves it's own pack" voting option, I would have chosen it. 

As for the argument that indy heat and Super Off Road have nothing in common, well thats simply not true.  The original coin-ops were both written/designed by Leland corporation coin ops.  The first, Super Off Road, was so succesful with its "spinner" (although I would call it a dial) control system that they rehashed the formula for Indy Heat and made twice the monkey off the same horse, er...if you see what I mean... :sly:

right, if the poll is to be taken as is, then for the Big Pack 4 release these will be bundled together.


>however<  it has come to my attention that Jaguar uses saves, which has been requested made usable by one of our site users.

I am pleased to report, that thanks to a 1999 whdload slave residing on my brother's A4000 HD (honestly, you cant make this up!) - this is now possible!  This slave allows you to save to DF0: rather than the HD disk image, making online saving functional. ( it may be possible to do it with the newer slave - but i am unfamiliar with it, and was only seeing what appeared to be a disk image marked as DF0: on the save function)

I would like this to be tested as a single game-pack before i merge the two. Anybody playing both jaguar and Lotus online, and who does use the save function, must be aware of the concequences of not keeping an identical save-disk as their opponent.
