James Pond CD32 Collection


Vectordean / Millenium
Uses: MegaCDPlayer by Steven Ross, WHDLoad by Wepl, slaves by various authors as outlined below
Cover and selection screen: Steve
ISO Master: Earok

The complete collection of James Pond games on Amiga!
  • James Pond, Underwater Agent (Slave: JOTD)
  • James Pond 2: Robocod CD32
  • James Pond 3: Operation Starfi5h CD32
  • The Aquatic Games (Slave: CFOU!)
We've also included all of the FMVs that came with the CD32 games, including the "Underwater Agent" cartoon that serves as a prequel to James Pond 3.

There's also a special new feature with this one that will also be included with selected future games (and probably in updates of previous games) - Jukebox mode! You can listen to the CD quality soundtrack for James Pond 2, and the Mega Drive soundtracks for James Pond 1 and 3. You should also be able to listen to these in a standard CD player.

Unfortunately I couldn't get the track title database working correctly so they're not displayed in the Jukebox. Here they are for your reference:

Make sure you burn the .cue file rather than the .iso in order to get the audio. Also note that "The Aquatic Games" has a very long initial load time, but after that it's fine.

  2. Nice compilation but it lacks the JAMES POND 3 commercial cartoon included in the CD32 original CD of JAMES POND 2. This cartoon should probably be used on the JAMES POND 3 CD but there was a mistake in choosing the CDXL file at Millenium. This would explain why we have to see the introduction of JAMES POND 2 before starting "OPERATION STARFI5H". But nice work for CD32 gamers ;-)

  3. Oups, sorry, I was misled by the thumbnail showing a picture of the James Pond 2 intro, not one from James Pond 3 video :-)

  4. I'm not sure who will see this.. but it's worth a go. I'm having problems burning this. If I burn the .cue file, the CD32 doesn't seem to recognise the game. It doesn't even seem to recognise it as a music CD but if I burn the ISO file, the game works (albeit without music).

    Has anyone got any advice? I'm using Imgburn and the CDs I've used seem fine with other games.
