Overview: Amiga 68k port of Exult. As computers evolve, we risk losing classic games from the not-so-distant past. One of these, Ultima 7, an RPG from the early 1990's, still has a huge following, and many consider it to be one of the most immersive games ever produced. Exult is a project to recreate Ultima 7 for modern operating systems, using the game's original plot, data, and graphics files. Requirements: 1) An AGA Amiga with a fast 68060 processor 2) AHI installed (v4.18 recommended) 3) 3.1 ROMS (3.0 ROMS may cause it to run slowly) 4) A copy of the PC game data files Features: * AGA SDL port * MIDI support * AHI Sound support * OGG compressed audio support * Fullscreen and window mode support Configuration Options: The tooltype 'CLOSE_WB' can be used to close the Workbench (3.1 ROMS recommended). The tooltype 'DISPLAY_MODE' can be used to set your display mode (PAL or NTSC). You must run Exult from the WB, running from the Shell is not supported. The AHI device used will be the one configured in your AHI Prefs (Unit 0). You will need to install the CAMD library if you want to use an external MIDI device. The default game data install directories are 'Work:Exult/serpentisle' and 'Work:Exult/blackgate'. If you decide to use different game data directories then you'll need to update the 'exult.cfg' file to match. You can set the thread priority of both the AHI device and the MIDI device using the 'exult.cfg' file. Performance Considerations: 1) If you have a Blizzard/Apollo you should really be using BlizKick/RemApollo to get most speed out of your Amiga. 2) Fast File System is actually not, use PFS3 instead. 3) Stick with v4.18 of AHI as the later versions without the 'FAST' modes are slower. 4) Running in a window will be very slow (use fullscreen modes instead). 5) OGG compressed audio is very demanding, MIDI will be much faster and sound better. Limitations: 1) None Links: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?p=1048849 (Exult thread on EAB) http://exult.sourceforge.net/index.php (Exult site) Thanks and acknowledgements: Exult team!
