 Turrican 3 - Reviewers? Diaries    
Turrican 3 - Reviewers DiaryAEG's T3 is a game of great scale and depth and probably the game event of the year. doesn't want to bring you a review based just on a few levels' experience, so check the progress of our main reviewer Wotnau burning the midnight oil at the game in this T3 diary, parallelly with Vip, adding his experience in the discussion section. The review is now available, enjoy!

It's done! Game completed, diaries are finished, the review is published. Wotnau dedicates his victory over Morgul II to Womana/Studio Style and ThunderBlade/Protovision (recently married).

Level 5 - Home again
Level 4 - Great Gianna's Brother
Level 3 - Enforcecan, Canakis and T3can
Level 2 - Return of the Dungeon
Level 1 - Welcome home

I’m sure there will be some C64 game with bulettime animations (although I would rather see John Woo jumps (tm)) sooner or later. ;-)

@_V_: Hopefully, you’ve got it in the mail.

now that the v1.1 is released, please update your diaries accordingly to the current status of the game.

Seems (from the .txt) mostly about small bugfixes, like some enemies not giving score. No word of the lockup bugs. But it did prove me wrong that there wasn’t going to be a fix from the author.. hope he fixes the rest too :)

[56] : 15. Sep 2004 13:26   
@_V_: I’ll try to check out the fix tonight and if it works out, I’ll do some last-minute corrections to the review when I get it from you. :) Anyway, judging by AEG writes in the text, the major bugs are still there. We’ll see.

@diary lover: Of course, we will change the header of our diaries to Turrican 3 v1.0 ;)

[58] : 16. Sep 2004 15:43   
Hmm, from the .txt file, I’d say my portion of the diary is unaffected, safe for the bonus block fix in world 4. Mwoah, ’s okay. As for Wotnau’s review, I received it yesterday after fixing my internet, which was down for a couple of days =(. Will send my part tonight or tomorrow morning.

[59] : 16. Sep 2004 18:27   
@_V_: Owkee dowkee, I’ll take some screenshooooots in the meantime.

[60] : 17. Sep 2004 12:36   
@Wotnau: Gurrrr.... I’m 50% complete, but got really tired around 2am, so I’ll have to finish it this evening. I’m sorry, Wotnau. =/

[61] : 17. Sep 2004 13:20   
@_V_: I’ll stay tuned. But please keep in mind that tomorrow morning I’m leaving for holidays. :> If you don’t make it, I’ll mail you the screenshots and it will be up to you to finalize the whole thing ;)

Hi, just a small update: I have sent the Turrican 3 review to CreamD for finalisation. Apologies for the delay are in order - the main problem was that we still needed to do screenshots for World 4 and 5. That task was mine, and the idea was to use WinVICE’s recording capabilities to record progress through those two Worlds, then make the screenshots. In theory, this was going to be a piece of cake.

In practise, this was a nightmare. I found out that (a) it’s best to record only one level at a time, as recording malfunctions may appear after about 10 minutes (b) The ’do not die while going up in 5-1’ bug likes to pop up unexpectedly and (c) yours truly had to learn the difference between the words ’recording’ and ’playback’ the hard way.

Again, I’m sorry, but I hope that the review will make up for it. Wotnau promised you an extensive review, and an extensive review it is. =)

Back from my holidays. I’m really curious about the final outcome, as it’s been a long time since I was a part of the reviewing process. ;)

[64] : 28. Sep 2004 18:37   
It’s now in the hands me and maccie. Patience pleze.

So, when will you Turrican masters create a nice "longplay" for us who aren’t as skilled? :)
