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 within the Amiga (or Atari) versions of code - bits, bytes, address offsets etc.

Originally (Xmas 2014) I had planned to simply port whatever was done for MDDClone onto iOS/Android but I've been having far too much fun figuring out how the Amiga version of Escape from Targ works that I'm going to continue heading down this path - which will result in me writing an engine of my own (something I've always wanted to do anyway). I'm also keen on publishing the game save format for the games in the hope that somebody may have a go at creating a modded/own version of Escape from Targ or Damocles. I really enjoyed playing The Second City and would love to play a Third City or whatever.

    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

        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.
