The new music sample is cool, but the first part is *very* hot-mastered... stop to the loudness war!
t.r.schmidt  - 03.02.2011 - 09:17
And since Factor 5 lcc and GmbH are insolvent, they´ll have to sell the trademark, right?
t.r.schmidt  - 03.02.2011 - 09:15
If the gameplay is copyrighted, is it defined somewhere what "turrican-like" gameplay is like and who and for how long someone holds this copyright?
Slayer  - 03.02.2011 - 01:58
Music sounds way nicer than the initial previews.
Slayer  - 03.02.2011 - 01:57
I mean the look of the characters inc. the Turrican Assault Suite.

KATAKIS 2 - Music Preview... Another one: http://siebold.info/katakis2/sngprv1.mp3
Robert  - 02.02.2011 - 15:19
No, there is no patented Turrican-like gameplay. But there is copyrighted Turrican-like gameplay. And the name still has different owners in different countries.
poutsoklis  - 02.02.2011 - 15:12
the name of the character is not that important (after all most people know "him" as turrican). for us non-german speakers is there a link or something? is it true? THE MASTER RETURNS?
Slayer  - 02.02.2011 - 13:49
But who owns the right on the characters? What's worth a Turrican w/o Bren...
Metaphylopod  - 02.02.2011 - 13:42
There's no such thing as "patented Turrican-like gameplay", it's all about the name. F5 is no more, and THQ has missed the bus - way to go for Manfred.
Robert  - 02.02.2011 - 12:47
But the combination of game mechanics is not used in many other games.
t.r.schmidt  - 02.02.2011 - 10:47
Most of the games mechanics (e.g. the wheel) are used in many other games... and the artwork would be quite different if made today. Also, there is no protected Turrican-music-theme which is in all parts.
Slayer  - 02.02.2011 - 09:44
The game itself maybe.
t.r.schmidt  - 02.02.2011 - 09:27
@robert: what else might there be protected?
Slayer  - 02.02.2011 - 01:15
And another one http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a391/EyeofVogler/turrik2a.jpg
Slayer  - 02.02.2011 - 01:15
Just one link http://i15.photobucket.com/albums/a391/EyeofVogler/turrik.jpg
Slayer  - 01.02.2011 - 22:05
Und wir wissen alle wie's aussehen wird http://slayer.turricanforever.de/trenzican.png
Robert  - 01.02.2011 - 21:02
It's just the rights to the name, things might be even more complicated now.
Daniel  - 01.02.2011 - 19:17
exellent
Christian  - 01.02.2011 - 17:29
Das sind doch gute Nachrichten. Jetzt brauchen wir nur noch talentierte Jungs, und es kann losgehen (Unser eigenes Turrican)!
Metaphylopod  - 01.02.2011 - 09:41
The Master finally seizes the rights to the Turrican trademark... now, if that's not some good news, I don't know what is...! Too bad for F5, though, now that the company has been dissolved completely...
X-Wave  - 01.02.2011 - 07:14
Vielleicht eine gute News für alle hier :-) http://www.spielenutzen.de/?p=349
Chief  - 28.01.2011 - 13:51
Nice screens. And the ship looks a bit like a Viper from Battlestar Galactica, which is a bonus for me. Wonder what the system requirements are
t.r.schmidt  - 28.01.2011 - 08:59
I hope the playarea scrolls up and down a bit? The Sprite seems quite huge in comparison to the screen. Cool gfx, anyway
MS  - 28.01.2011 - 07:00
Well...
poutsoklis  - 27.01.2011 - 19:07

Please? Pretty please?
Chief  - 26.01.2011 - 17:50
We want more info now!
MS  - 26.01.2011 - 06:27
You´ll get more information about Katakis 2 very soon! PROMISED!!
Chief  - 25.01.2011 - 21:47
Will Katakis 2 also be released for Nintendo DS? Would love to have a good shooter on my handheld
Bronko  - 25.01.2011 - 11:04
One of the previews reminds me of UT99
MS  - 25.01.2011 - 07:31
Anybody who´s remembering Killerwat? -> http://www.siebold.org/mp3/siebold_killerwatt.mp3
MS  - 25.01.2011 - 06:36
Well, can´t spread any longer previews of the music, sorry!
Chief  - 24.01.2011 - 10:51
That anime pic is cool. Music samples sound nice as well, but a bit short.

and the xbox controller is a bit expensive
Daniel  - 22.01.2011 - 15:33
have problems with the naomi emulator makaron!my keyboard dont work (can not start the rom) anyone knows how to handle this?
t.r.schmidt  - 22.01.2011 - 11:03
Stimmt wohl
Robert  - 21.01.2011 - 22:39
Schon zwei Leute, die in Physik nicht aufgepasst haben.
t.r.schmidt  - 21.01.2011 - 22:02
Alles ist relativ.
Robert  - 21.01.2011 - 16:36
Bewegung ist relativ.
t.r.schmidt  - 21.01.2011 - 12:18
Cool, sehr nah an Transplant! Mit den Hintergründen aber wirklich anstrengend anzuschauen, die gab es bei Transplant eben nicht
Bronko  - 20.01.2011 - 17:41
Auf Video wirklich komisch, gespielt aber wohl völlig ok. Trotzdem mal darüber nachgedacht das Schiff zu drehen, und nicht das Universum? Ist doch kein Futurama hier!
RuvF  - 20.01.2011 - 17:26
Bei der Kameraführung wird man ja Irre

Hat einer von euch schon mal Retaliation getestet ? http://www.indiepubgames.com/game/retaliation

t.r.schmidt  - 15.01.2011 - 18:59
@dark: changed super metroid to metroid series, good idea
t.r.schmidt  - 15.01.2011 - 18:41
I could need some help at collecting cheats, see here: http://www.turricanforever.de/setaforum?id=574
Robert  - 13.01.2011 - 19:31
Probably an old graphics chip, which does not support textures larger than 2048x2048. In that case use3d=0 might be faster anyway.
Bronko  - 13.01.2011 - 19:07
Smaller Tiles are a feature auf the "new" T2002F Editor only. As it always will be beta, it's propably just never gonna work...
RuvF  - 13.01.2011 - 18:28
Maybe you have to download a performance patch at pekaro.de (dd: http://pekaro.de/content/download/T2002_101.zip )
Christian  - 13.01.2011 - 18:09
You cant change the tilesetsize smaller if you have so many animations in it. But if you do that, all invisible sprites and tiles getting visible.
Christian  - 13.01.2011 - 18:07
That is correct. But I never knew what´s the problem with T2002. The mistake comes not often, but I had this one in FF 6 years ago, too.
RuvF  - 13.01.2011 - 17:43
Thats not correct. It works fine on every pc expecting from yours. I dunno whats up with your pc... Maybe the community knows an answer...
Christian  - 13.01.2011 - 15:02
The only way to solve the problem for us is to set the tileset to a max size of 640x1984.
Christian  - 13.01.2011 - 15:00
The problem that you cant see enemies and others has something to do with the level sizes. Pekaro programmed this, so I dont know how you can fix this.
RuvF  - 13.01.2011 - 13:28
Well fine Got an appcrash in the jetpack level or just die?
Chief  - 12.01.2011 - 23:30
Second time no crash, made it past the jetpack level. Really nice to play classic levels with the Turrican 2 type weapons.
Chief  - 12.01.2011 - 22:26
Well, played the first level, really cool, seeing this old Turrican 1 graphics. But the game now crashed at the first boss...
Chief  - 12.01.2011 - 22:08
@RuvF: In fact I did redownload it, to rule out the possibility of a corrupt download. Didn't work either. But I solved it, setting use3d=0 in the ini file worked! Strange, since the use3d=1 option works in other levelpacks, like MR 2.1
RuvF  - 12.01.2011 - 22:02
I saw that you didn't try to redownload T-All. Maybe you should try this...
RuvF  - 12.01.2011 - 21:48
It looks like that the Worldset won't be loaded sucessfully. Open the T-ALL_0 level with the leveleditor. Can you see there the level?
Chief  - 12.01.2011 - 20:21
This is it: http://www.imagebanana.com/view/g3sn79tf/TallProblem.JPG
RuvF  - 12.01.2011 - 19:06
We live in a world, where you can share your data :P Like here: http://www.imagebanana.com/
Chief  - 12.01.2011 - 19:03
@RuvF: I have the screenshot on my pc, hard to link to that...
Bronko  - 12.01.2011 - 18:28
I don't think, Gunstar Heroes feels very Turricanish.
Daniel  - 12.01.2011 - 17:39
2d action in 3d design......mmmmmmmmmh
Daniel  - 12.01.2011 - 17:38
i think treasure games are the best of all games(gunstar heroes, ikaruga, radiant silvergun, gradius 5 etc.
Daniel  - 12.01.2011 - 17:36
gunstar heroes is cool!!
RuvF  - 12.01.2011 - 12:08
@Chief: Just post the link here
Chief  - 12.01.2011 - 08:05
@RuvF: Where do I mail the screenshot to?
dark  - 12.01.2011 - 06:32
second what about Gunstar heroes? very liniar, but with great bosses, fast action, and awsome weapons much like Turrican.
dark  - 12.01.2011 - 06:31
Just a couple of points. first, you only list Super metroid, ---- now there are more 2D metroid games like fusion and zero mission shouldn't it go in as a series the way you've put in Contra and mega man?
dark  - 12.01.2011 - 06:28
Great to see the Turrican Seta get a facelift and to see more games in the Seta.
dark  - 12.01.2011 - 06:28

RuvF  - 11.01.2011 - 23:35
Strange... Please send a screenshoot.
Chief  - 11.01.2011 - 23:19
Did reinstall of T2002, with E update. Even tried simply copying the T-all files into a working T2002 install. Same result
Chief  - 11.01.2011 - 23:18
I have problems with T-All. Unpacked it into the Bonus folder, I do get the altered title screen and music, but no graphics ingame, except a starry background. Other levelpacks like Morgul Returns work fine
RuvF  - 10.01.2011 - 16:15
Aber nicht bei jedem Levelpack? Bekomme noch bei X Levelpacks nen appcrash.
Bronko  - 10.01.2011 - 15:57
Och, der alte bonus war lustiger, da konnte man die Teile mit der Maus in die andere Richtung ziehen. Aber heil ist auch gut.
Christian  - 10.01.2011 - 15:06
Ich hab auch Win7. Und die Fehler bei mir wurden ja alle berichtigt.
RuvF  - 10.01.2011 - 14:47
Vermutlich haste Win7. Da gibt fast jedes Level ein App crash am Levelexit. Um das zu lösen müsste man alle anpassen, aber ich glaube darauf hat keiner Nerv ^^
Slayer  - 10.01.2011 - 14:15
Haha... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDkNNt9qJLs&feature=rec-exp_fresh+div-1f-10-HM
Chief  - 09.01.2011 - 23:35
Secret bonus, is that the skies going to scrolling when you click a certain sprite?
Chief  - 09.01.2011 - 23:01
I got a Logitech F310 gamepad, and after getting a little used to it, I''m almost as good as with the keys. Btw, really like the latest version of Morgul Returns. Great music, and the levels are looking pretty and challenging.
Christian  - 09.01.2011 - 21:25
Vermutlich liegt das wieder am Spriteproblem. Am besten, du installierst T2002 komplett neu.
Turrican   - 09.01.2011 - 21:10
Ich brauche keine Cheats ich wollte wissen warum der tstarter abstürtzt mal bei level 1 mal bei 3 dann wder bei level 8 und soweiter egal was für ein lavelpack
RuvF  - 09.01.2011 - 19:59
Cheater sind nur diejenigen, die es dann benutzen xD
Bronko  - 09.01.2011 - 18:44
Pfui, das ist doch kein T-Cheater!
RuvF  - 09.01.2011 - 15:56
Wäre ja ein Toller Feature vom TStarter, wenn man den Start Level eingeben kann (also automatische Anpassung der Level ini)
Bronko  - 09.01.2011 - 14:46
Man kann es aufgeben auf die Savefunktion von T2002 zu vertrauen.
