tfishell: Valkyrie Fight and Valkyrie Fight Tag

http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/567325-valkyrie-fight says it was released in Japan. HOTU describes them as good games, but I'm not sure I want to even try getting in contact due to the presumed language barrier.. Anybody who happens to read/write Japanese and sees this wanna check it out?

SCPM: I don't think this one's gonna happen. Those are doujinshi fan games that use the likenesses of characters from Square Enix's Valkyrie Profile series. Though it'd be awesome to have Valkyrie Profile on PC.
Thanks for the info. I won't bother with them, then. (I have been making quite a few contact with other companies, just not posting them here. :P)

--------------------------------

Fire & Ice

http://www.homeoftheunderdogs.net/game.php?id=1900 looks like a decent platformer, but comparing the DOS vs. Amiga versions (at least on YouTube), I'll probably wait until GOG gets Amiga rights. So perhaps never.

--------------------------------

V2000

This game - http://www.homeoftheunderdogs.net/game.php?id=4073 - also looks good, but I'm worried about going after non-DOS games from the mid-to-late 90s, especially if I'm unsure there was Glide support or not.

EDIT: It looks good, though. May have to see what I can find. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-eWju2pPZA

I may have the disk in the cupboard - I could dig it out and see if it still works if you're really worried, I'm running 32-bit Win 7 though...

Yes, this was a decent enough platformer on the Amiga, and a pretty one. If the Amiga games ever make it out, I would really like to get the James Pond series on here. The full set would make a good addition to GOG, and each offers a different play style. I'm quite fond of RoboCod myself.

Phc7006: Imho, there was a single version, working under DOS or WIN 3.1. from what I could google around, the game could be packaged as an image file and mounted directly in Dosbox.

SCPM: - I didn't get a reply from Steve Moretzky, but he forwarded my message to Bob Bates, who wrote:
"Unfortunately, the legal rights to Legend’s games are in a very complicated situation. The rights to most of the games were acquired by Atari, which itself is going through bankruptcy. I have tried many times through the years to buy back the rights to the games, but I have not yet been successful. I still have not given up, but I am not hopeful."

tfishell: SCPM did actually find Karsten Köper's email address (although we don't know if it works), so I can PM that to you if you want.
avatar
SCPM: I used this site to verify that it does work:
http://verify-email.org/
But whether he reads it or not is another question. And I didn't realize, but the same address was posted earlier in this thread by Piranjade.
Legend came up again in another thread and I came back here to look up what was said before - this Bob Bates said he was trying to buy back the rights from Atari and none of the Legend Ent games turned up in the 'De Minimis Assets' list that Tommo acquired from the Atari auction - maybe worth checking back with him to see if he finally succeeded or at least could shed any light on why they may have been missing from the list?
Anyone got a link to that De Minimis Assests list?

Props to anyone who is willing enough to dig through these 24 pages to see what's changed. ;)

And yes, if you could see if V2000 might run with nGlide installed, I'd appreciate it.

One of the comments says, "I used to have this game for the PC. It was nearly the same, except for the intro," so the DOS release may have nearly as been as good as the Amiga version.
Im wondering if both GOG and Night Dive are scanning this thread now and then?

There wasn't much activity recently, but maybe some of the info has been helpful.

V2000 installed and ran just fine in D3D mode on my Radeon HD 4850, didn't have to use compatibility modes or even run as administrator or nuffin!
Its an interesting Isometric 'Defender' like thing, a bit like Wasteland Angel if you've ever played that only a bit more involved with slight RTS like features where you rescue men and have them work at your base to make weapons etc. Controls are fiddly but I could probably work on them in XPadder if I was going to start playing it properly
Its actually an early example of a HD remake of the 80's game 'Virus' (or 'Zarch' in its original Acorn version)

Very cool!

Asghan: The Dragon Slayer looks like another good one.

I sent an email to Scholastic, but fr.linkedin.com/pub/jérôme-gastaldi/2/73/175 mentions "GROLIER INTERACTIVE UK" being owned by Lagardère group, so I was considering sending off an email to them, too.

EDIT: What I edited out could have been construed badly.
