Unofficial: Alien vs. Predator Gold - Switch Edition

220px-AvP1.jpg

This is an unofficial Nintendo Switch port of the Fox Interactive / Rebellion Developments game, Aliens Versus Predator Gold.

Note: Requires the full game (AvP Gold or AvP 2000), both GOG or Steam work.

If you use AvP 2000, go there https://icculus.org/avp/files/etc/ and download english.txt, rename it to language.txt and put it with the assets into the same Folder as the NRO.

A correct setup will look like this:


All folders (but FMVs) must be lower case, also every file in every dir must be lower case.
"+" is Escape, "-" is Enter

Strafing sucks balls so I currently only enabled it for not Alien.
This is the first iteration, expect bugs.

Don't forget to map joycon controls in the options, else you will not be able to do much ingame, also it currently renders in 1080p, so handheld text will look small.

Known bugs:
- Profile sometimes doesn't want to load properly, load another profile, then use the change profile option and it should work
- Exit Game does not work
- Some stuff requires keyboard input (for example gamma control, works via docked or USB OTG), but the game can be played without it! Swkbd support is planned when I find time.

This is amazing. I can't wait to get home and try this out. Great work @m4xw. I'm a huge fan of everything you've done with RetroArch on Switch, and this is just over the top.

The controls suck tho. Did the best I can without adding menu options or fixing strafe (tilts the character for whatever reason in the original game).
So that will be improved later on, maybe I will add control profiles, dunno yet.
I should fix mouse support too, since this supports keyboard.

Thanks works fine, btw there’s a click sound... I think the radar sound doesn’t make the correct effect, maybe I’m missing an audio file.

The tease you posted on twitter had me immediately hyped! One of my favourite games of all time and I'm looking forward to playing it on the go

Weird, the logo that plays when u start the game is a FMV, but i cant remember seeing the intro's either.
They def. work, but some cases might be bugged for whatever reason.

The FOX Interactive animated FMV logo doesn't show either for me (logos.bik)
100% works for me. Check your install.
Intro's on the other hand..
