New RO4 patches released

Posted by John Hoare on 17:52, 3/3/2003 | ,
 
Theo v/d Boogaert has announced that he's uploaded some new game patches to his website. Boogie Buggy, Dungeon, GBAhd, Olympics, Quazer, WarLocks and X-Fire can now be used on RISC OS 4! Yay!

There's also plenty of other patches on the site, including some for the StrongARM, so it's well worth checking out.

Unregistered user Why not try them and find out?

Warlocks does... (except for the screens at the end of the levels not seem to be working)

Unregistered user Yes, the article is slightly ambiguous (I haven't got the hardware to test it myself). I'd guess they all also work on a StrongARM, but I don't know.

Unregistered user Yes, they should work with RISC OS 4 and StrongArm machines.
I need to get hold of an un-mullered version of X-Fire to try that patch.
Mine has been messed about with to get it to work (well, sort of work) and so the patch doesn't work for me.
CJE here I come (when I get some money of course)
Cheers!

Unregistered user No, because they're copy protected, so I couldn't make a backup. :-(
Cheers!
