Already updated about 40 games with HAGA . But it sometimes goes slow. And especially when game works not on TT, Falcon. I want to make all compatible, but with some it is really hard (Voyager). You know, I must think on diverse users  :)
Blasteroids will be done soon, Invaders too, and Overscan Invaders as new title too ...

Both invaders and blasteroids work well. Thank you.

Operation Wolf is already done, some 3 years ago. But it needs update, since is RAMdisk based, and requires lot of RAM.
As I catch some time and strength, I will do it.
Yes, partitioner - I'm on it to solve problems related.

New adapt. is based on original STX images. But as I see it is not same game version as what I used in older one. In any case, I tested it until end some 5 times, and it is OK (after fixing bug at last level).  Despite some suspicious reviews, where they talk about high quality console conversion, I think that this is done poorly - code is very machine speed dependant - and slows down too much when is lot of on screen, + bugs.

I just tested most of your latest adaptations, they work very well! I merely noticed Elf did not have in-game music on my falcon, but it has some on your video!

I will check Elf on Falcon again. Often sound is worse and silencer on Falcon than on other Atari machines (not 100% compatible HW), so me with my old ears notice things not so good  :)

Many thanks for your awesome work.
You never keep motivation and work very hard to adapt all these games. Amazing  ;)
And moreover you are listening to all questions and request! it's something very rare.

I have to say too that your games are working well on my computer. It needed a long time for me to understand how to make them compatible, but now all the games that are supposed to work are working.

Hello there! Still in the adaptation mood as I can see  ;D

Simple question: so it seems you've been  're-working' your adaptations  so that they can run without any extra stuff, i'm actually  refering to Gamex and stuff like that.. (I remember i read something about that somewhere on your site).  Baal, which i've just downloaded (again), is currently playing on Steem (no gamex mode)... What is the purpose of it all ? is it to make things simpler for everyone  when they want to test your work ? I like the idea anyway..

 As for my question, i'd like to know if you plan to re-work all of your adaptations, is there an exhaustive list somewhere for games that no longer need the Gamex engine. I already know about baal. What about BAT 2, Warhead, Metal Master, Crazy Cars 2... Do they still need to be run under Gamex ?

thanks for carrying on your work

All latest adapts are made with HAGA - nimber is now about 100, including updates of old versions. It is easy to know - because of chronological order of table (default). Another clue: if DL page has light green BG color it is HAGA. Third hint: if there is RUNME.TOS instead START.TOS it is HAGA.
Intention is to make adapts. in form usable for more users - in first place Falcon users with 1GB partitions (what was not supported in old), then those unable or lazy to set Hddriver RAM usage. And not to forget people with some less popular hard disk drivers.
Old system has still some advantages - speed in first place , + is still more straight when game saves are in question etc. But nothing is perfect, or best in all aspects.  HAGA still has support for old disk access (only with my drivers), so not much is really lost.
And why I talk so much, when all above is described on site ...

Considering BAT 2, Warhead etc. If you'd read usage, you'd know the answer. Point is not in Gamex, but in files D15R...   .
Since Warhead uses not them, you can run it without mounted hard disk image on Steem.

OK, here is complete list of HAGA adapts:

Thank you very much for your detailed answer and taking time to make that list

I think i have all the clues regarding games that use the Haga mode (green bg in dl page, RUNME.TOS instead of START.TOS and of of course the list above). I think i'm glad of the choice you made, i.e making your adaptations easier for everyone to handle with, I'm not sure if i understand everything and if it was the original purpose of Haga, but result is the same, now running your games require less manipulations (no more need of an image file, create a specific hard drive partition etc..). The Gamex system was pretty good but somewhat a bit complicated (at least for me), plus this mode is more dedicated for people who have real hardware  if i'm not mistaken. Carry on this way  :)

And why I talk so much, when all above is described on site ...
Couldn't find the Haga page  ::) - Link plz  :)



Edit : found it   ::)
