it's a general limitation of the t2002 engine

last time I checked, the .sav format saves the last level played in one bit of one byte, but in a bit-field manner (thus, instead of 0-255 level you end up with 0-7 level that can be saved)

Yeah! Like Mine , Personally I never noticed that problem.

Is it normal that "Continue" from the main menu only til level 7 or 8 works ? ( some maps have 10+ levels).

Chris Hülsbecks Turrican Podcast on BitJam
Quote from http://www.bitfellas.org/:
"Am kommenden Sonntag, den 13.05.2012, verwandeln die Jungs von BitFellas.org den Muttertag zum Turrican-Tag. Dann wird der BitJam-Podcast #151 veröffentlicht, der sich voll und ganz der Musik aus der Welt der Turrican-Spiele widmet.

Chris Hülsbeck selbst hat diesen gemeinsam mit Jan Zottmann (Produzent der Turrican Soundtrack Anthology und Immortal 4 CDs) und Thomas Böcker (Initiator der "Symphonic"-Konzerte) zusammengestellt. Die Playlist umfasst dabei nicht nur Remixe der Musik aus den Spielen der Turrican-Reihe von Chris Hülsbeck selbst, sondern auch zwei bislang unveröfffentlichte Titel, die von Jan Zottmann und Fabian del Priore komponiert wurden. Weiterhin haben Chris, Jan und Thomas ihre persönlichen Highlights aus der Remix-Szene ausgewählt, die von BitFellas-Soundspezialist und Demoszene-Musiker Vincenzo zusammengemischt wurden. Chris selbst meldet sich im Mix mit einer persönlichen Grußbotschaft an seine Fans zu Wort.

Der BitJam Podcast #151: Turrican Special wird im Laufe des kommenden Sonntags zum kostenlosen Download im MP3-Format erhältlich sein."

Turrican Soundtrack Anthology by Chris Huelsbeck
Chris Huelsbeck wants to produce a new Turrican-Soundtrack-Album and startet a fundraiser on kickstarter.com!

"Almost 20 years have passed since the last game in the series was released, but Chris has big plans to bring »Turrican« back from retirement –at least musically– with the production of the »Turrican Soundtrack Anthology«: The idea behind this is an epic limited edition box set of at least three CDs, which will feature almost every melody from the saga in newly arranged and recorded versions (including titles like »Concerto for Laser and Enemies«, »Metal Stars«, »Hall of Heroes«, as well as full length versions of all main titles and end-credits!). While this box set is bound to please every synthesizer music fan out there, new bonus recordings with the WDR Radio Orchestra are also lined up for the project, to be realised in the context of a new symphonic game music concert in November and supervised by the producers of the acclaimed »Symphonic Shades – Huelsbeck in Concert« event and album.

In order to realize these ambitious plans, a budget of at least 75,000 US-Dollars (about 58,000 Euro) has to be secured. To achieve this, Chris Huelsbeck is now asking his fans to support him in a Kickstarter campaign to make the »Turrican Soundtrack Anthology« become a reality. »My first Turrican album has sold roughly 10.000 units over the years«, Huelsbeck says. »I know that the games still have a following, too. This project is a personal dream of mine and I hope that together with all the fans, we can make this happen!«"

So, if you want this to happen, spend some money at kickstarter.com!



Unbelievable:
878 people already payed $56,755 of the needed $75,000 goal!
