Falcon Fighter II v0.93 (sf2_tc.tos for Falcon)

SF2 is a combat game which had a great success in the beginning of
90's, on the SNES, and then came his adaptation on all machines and a
huge number of derivatives and clones.
This is a straight binary. It's an old code, so it may dislike your
configuration. Commands are displayed. Press SPACE to play (wait a bit, it
needs to initialize sprites). The only available character is Chun li, for
both players (it takes less memory). To control the character, use standard
joysticks (plugged under the keyboard, berk).
Press SPACE to quit
The game runs in 320x200 16 colours (or merely gray-levels) mode,
because it was originally developped on STE. It easily runs at 50 frames
per second on a Falcon.
First try of game in Overscan (384x200) True Colour mode. It is
one of my first programs on Falcon. It has many bugs: no collision test,
no good sprites clipping, because sprites where converted to be displayed
for TC mode (there is no more planes). I think that a bit more work, it
would become a very good version compared to SNES one.
To play, just come closer to your opponent and press adequate keys
to hit him (standards joysticks have only one button, so I used the kbd).
When an opponent has no more energy, game is not finished, you can continue
Player 1 : joystick port 1
Low Middle High
Punch 7 8 9
Kick 4 5 6
Player 2 : joystick port 0 (mouse port)
Low Middle High
Punch A (Q) Z (W) E (E) azerty (qwerty)
Kick Q (A) S (S) D (D)
Have a look at:
- Blitter collision test (pixel precise test)
- Multi speed groud scrolling (bottom of screen)
- On-screen energy bars
- The use of blitter and hardware scrolling
All the background is hard scrolled, all other display (without
any exception) are blitter-done.
- Speed against US Gold's official release.
- Sound effects, badly sampled from the SNES (a bit shitty)
are played with the STE DMA.
- What STE games could have been with a minimal work.
