This page will host all of my saved game editors that I created on the Atari ST. Slowly but surely I will be revisiting them all (some haven’t been touched in over 25 years!) and recompiling them using the latest version of GFA BASIC – the ‘upgraded compiler revision with loads of bugs fixed’ by Lonny Pursell, that is – and update the really old ones to use some of the functions that I had added to the later variants.
In the old days, it got to a point where it would only take me an evening to take the code ‘shell’ from the last saved game editor that I had coded, and turn it around to work for another game.
It would be nice to get back to that kind of productivity, but rearranged for my older (and occasionally wiser) self; maybe one a month, or three 🙂
Current WIP status
My first new saved game editor in a loooong time is for ‘Legend Of The Sword’. It is near enough complete and the main core GFA code has been updated to use SNDH music replay instead of the old methods that I used to use. I just need to set up my GFA BASIC environment so that it uses the latest (bug-fixed) compiler by Lonny Pursell and recompile it.
Once the above one has been sorted out and released, then I can start back-tracking through all of my older editors (some are almost 30 years old!) and bring them up to date. Maybe (!!) get them all re-released on a few special disks as a 30th Anniversary set 🙂
