Dizzy II. Treasure Island Dizzy (+2A/+3 fix)

Post by Ast A. Moore » Mon May 14, 2018 2:35 pm

I fixed Treasure Island Dizzy so that it (a) loads on a +2A/+3 in 128K mode and (b) the sampled speech doesn’t sound distorted. It is my understanding that the Andrew and Philip gave permission to SC (or any other site) to distribute their games.

Would SC like to add my fixed version to its DB, as well?

Reading your PM not particularly loud but very clear. Sending one back as well.

Good work, that's the best Dizzy of all in my excellent opinion.

I concur, but I’ll still give Dizzy III the same treatment, time permitting. (It has the opposite problem, the speech is distorted on the 128K/+2 but not on the +2A/+3.)
