Ported games

Post by Duckula »

The team at Elwynor have been working hard to port existing games to the WG3.x platform, some of which include:

- Zone RAIDERS!
- Gin Rummy Card Game
- A beta of the unfinished ANSI RPG World of Darkness ported to NT for the first time
- Tele-Arena I
- GaltiTrek

Keep an eye out here for updates from Questman regarding testing/release schedules for these any more games coming soon!

Tele-Arena games are a collaboration between Elwynor Technologies and ArcticZone. We have a LOT of exciting plans coming there. More in the Tele-Arena forum.

GaltiTrek! can be downloaded on www.elwynor.com right now.

Nice ! I'll test it on WGNT.

Hmm, I see the description of the game here:
http://www.elwynor.com/elwynorwiki/display/elwynor/EntertainmentAddons

But there's no link and there's no "browse files" ftp-like link. Is it attached to a page?

PS: BTW thanks to all of you working on these ports, I know it's a lot of effort and time-consuming.

I'm really interested in Infinity Complex listed on the elwynor site. My friends and I played this game for days on end before the internet blew up and BBS's were still king.

IC is pretty close to release-ready, I'm told. I could use a little more hard playing of it.

Update on these plus Number Shuffle, Strategic War Games, CyberCards, etc.

Right after these posts - labor day weekend - I decided it was a good time to backup the brand new dev laptop that I was using to work all summer on this stuff. And unfortunately, WHILE BACKING UP, the brand new SSD up and died. I think it was a combination of a crap drive and Win10's SSD eating tendencies. I sent it to repair but nobody was able to get data off the chips.

The good news is that I've re-done about half of what I did last summer (2.5 months) in a short time since restarting and I'll get to all of these soon.

Plus there are some exciting developments with some games thought lost to time that have been found -- once I get to see their condition they may be able to be restored.
