ISO Master: Earok
Our biggest CD32 project ever! Including!
- A few of the blockbusters by Delphine, Psynosis, Team 17, Cinemaware, LucasArts and others.
- A wide range of genres - point and click adventure, platformer, racing, first person shooter, sports, fighting - something for everyone.
- Games spanning almost the entire life span of the 68k Amiga, including some of the recent demoscene games and unofficial Atari ST ports.
- A few highly eclectic selections, like ultra-violent Polish beat-em-ups, the "Resident Evil" demo and even FMV games.
- Would work in a stock CD32
- Didn't require a mouse or keyboard to play the basic game
- Where possible, were enhanced in some way to take advantage of the CD32 pad (using the latest and greatest WHDLoad slaves etc)
- With certain exceptions, didn't have an official release on the CD32
If I've included a game that doesn't work on a real CD32, and you report the issue to me first, I promise to either fix it, or replace it with a game of your choice (so long as your choice is appropriate for the collection).
There is some overlap between this and some of the smaller release we've done, however this doesn't have any of the bonus content the standalone releases do - control screens, selection screens, CDXL intros, soundtracks, 3rd party content and the like. In general, if there's a game you really like on this collection but we've done a standalone release, we recommend getting the standalone release.
UPDATE Posted another version which should fix a few issues. Also, if you hold down "Pause" while booting it'll disable pictures in the menu, which should make it a bit snappier.
Forgot to mention last time - these games can be "quickbooted" by holding down the appropriate button while the CD loads:
RED - Tiny Troops
BLUE - Worms Director's Cut
GREEN - Xtreme Racing
UP - Resident Evil Demo
LEFT - Wolfenstein 3D Shareware
FORWARD - Virtual Karting 2
REVERSE - Shadow of the Beast 3

So this brings us to the end of our utterly insane project to release one unofficial port a day for the entire month. It's been a hell of a ride, and I was blown away by the fantastic support shown by the Amiga community. I'd like to especially thank Neil, Ali and the IndieRetroNews guys for covering the project so extensively, Gaz for making A4 sized templates of the covers, all of the slave/patch/crack authors that made many of these conversions possible and all the EAB users and posters here who contributed support, testing or suggestions.
And of course, I'd like to make a shout out to my collaborator Steve. The original suggestion to work on these conversions was his, and the new covers and screens he spent massive hours making is what made the project stand out.
What next? Well, this isn't quite the end. Although we're certainly not going to continue at this pace, we're still planing to release a few more between now and Christmas, and also there were some great conversions done by other people that we're going to launch through the blog. Maybe there's also a possibility of a few "officially authorised" releases, we'll see.
But as for me and Steve, we really need a break. Seriously. So no more daily releases.
Did somebody say encore? Well... ;)
