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

You've waited this long, you can wait a bit more <3

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.

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
