I haven't been in contact with the MDDClone author since 2006/2007, and since then, all my MDDClone contributions (performance feedback about SDL-MDDClone, Mercenary 3 Italian translation) were done through Enjo.
The MDDClone author never even replied to my email when I sent him the Mercenary 3 translation, which is why I had to send it to Enjo, so that he, and not the MDDClone author, would compile a new version.

    Hi Enjo. Would DevilMaster be in regular contact with tge MDDCLONE author? How would I get hold of him? 5 months later I am still trying to get in contact with MDDClone author for source code but... more

        Thanks for the reply Simone. To be honest, I have given up waiting and decided to do it all over myself. I've been disassembling Amiga Escape from Targ for the past few weeks and I think I nearly... more

          Maybe this isn't the reply you're expecting, but I don't know much about the inner workings of the games, except for: 1) a data table I received from the MDDClone author in 2002 that details... more

            "2) actions that are strictly related to the visualization of text (e.g. which flag triggers the output of which phrase, which objects in the world are considered inventory objects)" If you are happy ... more

              It's not up to me to decide. I'll ask Enjo if I can share the part of the source that I got for the translation.

                I understand Simone, thanks. If its MDDClone source code snippets, don't worry about it. Enjo is rather busy at the moment so there's no rush. Besides, once I start disassembling Damocles I'll have... more

                  I emailed Enjo, who explained the copyright issues about sharing even part of the MDDClone source code. He then added that, because I am the holder of the files I used for the Italian translation,... more

                    That's OK Simone. Its probably best for me to go-it-alone anyway and that way there's certainty that any artifacts I produce are entirely from the Amiga and not MDDClone.

            Thanks for the reply Simone. Sorry, I was hoping that you may have tinkered with the Amiga or Atari ST game code yourself. What I was hoping for was to be able to share memory indices and formats etc ... more
