    Well, I for one can't talk, given how little progress I've made on Cubix. blush.gif smile.gif

    Wow!
    A Great remake of a good game, graphic and sound are fantastic.
    Its addictive to play, like it was with the C64 version.
    It plays perfect on my pc, but unfortunately not on my htpc system...

    I have a 40 " LCD that doesnt seem to like the resolution this game have.
    A crackling noise and green lines on the screen, i get the same when running
    dxdiag (ddraw fullscreen, d3d dx7 & d3d dx8) d3d dx9 is ok.
    I think my lcd dont support such low resolution.

    Is there a way to force wizball to use a specific resolution via "config.txt"
    or in some other way?

    It would be awesome to play on the big screen with my cordless rumblepad.

    Thank you for a great game!

    G'day!

    Wizball's one of my favourites so I was delighted to see that it was completed.

    However, I have tried installing it on three PCs & it only works on one of them. The other two it just becomes one of those Windows error boxed saying it has encountered an error (the one that always asks you if you want to "Send a Report").

    All three PCs are running WinXP.

    Can somebody please help?

    Thank you.

    Hello Neil,

    The three download choices are:

    * Wizball V1.00-1.02 PC Patch

    * Wizball V1.02 Mac Download

    * Wizball V1.02 PC Download

    So I downloaded the third one each time.

    I tried reinstalling DirectX & the Adobe Flash & Shockwave Players but that hasn't helped either. 8-(

    Absolutely fantastic

    We played this game as kids. Then my dad beat the game and for some reason it would never start again. sad.gif (twas only a amstrad 512K tongue.gif)

    I love this game and my high score is 555600 and i didn't get all of the levels out.

    Thanks for the remake - you made my decade.

    I use an NVIDIA graphics card & actually found a website that leads to a site that has an archive of all the old NVIDIA driver updates. I went down (starting from the newest) until I found one that would install. All works fine now.

    Hi guys. I've seen that there was also a linux version of wizball, but it's not on the download page. How can I obtain it?

    What a great homage to this fantastic game. I'm really enjoying this!

    However, I'm having difficulties getting very far now as back in the old days of Commodore 64. Is there SOME way of cheating? :)

    Thanks for making this game.

    Worked my way through red and green, but some of those enemies have a surprisingly good aim... I'd just like to see the whole game some day before I die.

    I have just had a great Wizball session. Thanks so much for re-making this game. You've done a sterling job.

    Well done for coming through on what sounds like a drunken brag :)

    I'd like to see you take it further. The unofficial Wizball 2? Sensi never made it. Perhaps you can.

    Am I the only one having problems getting on the score list? I just managed to get 92300 points but to no avail... :-(
    It probably has something to do with the fact that whenever I loose, the "Game over" screen is the only thing that happens. In order to play the game again, I have to quit the application and start over. Also, I'm having problems with the game itself, which seems programming relatad. Aren't you supposed to go to the Wizards place when you gather enough color? It happens with red and blue and when I gather enough for the mix, but not with green... Is it supposed to be like that?

    Walkthrough, anyone?

    Outstanding remake! Plays as pefect as the C64 original, if not even smoother, but good gods, I wish you'd left the WIZBORE trick in. This game is a real bear once the burst bullets start flying everywhere.

    so yeah, cheating.. err.. I tried changing WIZBALL_START_LIVES in data.dat, but I guess you don't really use that value, do ya?

    Belting game - a fitting tribute to its 20th anniversary. Hope Krix & Jops approve.

    Downloaded this last night and have spent hours playing. Fantastic job on this guys. Smooth scrolling, sound as great (if not better) as the original, the diffculty level is as tough as I remember. Have managed to complete the first two levels before the guitar solo kicks in.

    Well done again.

    are you sposed to get a computer generated code to enter? i didnt get one....

  29. It should have given you a code, regardless of the score. Check the directory and you'll probably find a file there containing it.

    Unfortunately I get a big problem playing it. It launches fine, and I can see the options menus, etc. However, once I start a game, the play area is black (I can see the icons at the bottom of the screen). Anyone else run into this? I'm have a nVidia 8800 GTS with latest drivers.

    Regards,

    P.
