1. Hi there,

    I ported Another World to the Switch, based on the reverse engine made by Grégory Montoir:

    Good work! Another World is a classic, which I never managed to finish on the Amiga back in the day, but I did finish the anniversary edition on the 3DS more recently. I never played the sequel so will probably give it a go once I finally start running homebrew on my Switch (been waiting for Atmosphere, not sure whether to keep waiting).

    Very good, thank you fort the port of Heart of the Alien, I never play it.
    I see that you are a master of porting open source games ;-)
    Will you port "The Ur-Quan Masters" to the switch?
    It is the open source version of Star Control 2 game

    How would you want to do that? Then you will warp everything.

    Exact same thing here (except for the unfinished Amiga stuff, as my big brother finished it while I was at school). Still waiting for a stable CFW to get this one.

    This makes me think what an awesome pocket Amiga the Switch could be.

    The ultimate portable Amiga is the GPD Win in my opinion. A keyboard is very useful.
    Cpasjuste's Vita port of UAE4ALL is great too.

    I just wish Heart of the Alien got an official "Anniversary" port.

    Both not working on 3.0.0 (black screen then back to HBL menu). Maybe a problem (mine) with data folder name... i will re-test tomorrow.

    For those who have problems with Another World, did you transfer data files via FTP using Filezilla ?

    If so, be sure that the option "Treat files without extension as ASCII file" is unchecked. This option is in "Edit -> Settings -> Transfer -> File Types"

    I only have a switch in 4.1.0, so I can investigate that much why it doesn't work on 1.0, 3.0.0 or 5.1.0

    Edit: Working on 3.0.0 confirmed here
