Bugs in T4f

Hello. I thougt it would be nice to start a topic on this great game from Dex, T4f. Now that more people are playing it, some bug may show, and here we can report them, so this great game can become even better!

I have found 1 bug. When you start the game, in the spaceship, first you see the Turrican sprite, then you see the "beam-in" effect, so another Turrican is put over the sprite allready there. Looks a bit weird. It only happens in the spaceship.

I had the same glitche. But I had it also in T2002, the first time I played it. Just once.

As I said before, it's not a bug, but a thing to midify in the engine : a better centering of the character by the "camera", to see the ground (and the holes). This problem is from T2002's engine, but I'm sure someone can fix it. It could be VERY appreciable.

Ps : Sorry for mistakes.

Even stranger is this: I have replaced the T4f sprite with the Amiga-sprite, but when I start the game, and begin in the spaceship, I first see the T4f sprite and then the Amiga sprite "beams in". And this only happens in the spaceship. It almost seems that the T4f-sprite that appears first, is part of the text that appears underneath it, which indicates the name of the level.

The text that appears is "prelude" and when this disappears, the T4f sprite also disappears. Coincedence?

Another small thing. Just after you exit the spaceship, there is a bonus block far left, and a one-up. But half of the items that come from the bonus-block go too far to the left, so you can't pick them up. Maybe the block should be a little more to the right, so you can collect all the items that come from it.

Copy the full link of the file to your download program, it will work (I use NetAnts).

I'm also under a 56k, and it takes 4 hours to download it.

I've been playing T4 Funeral for a while, and I als have some comments. But I think that most of them are due to the engine:

- I cannot read any text in the images that appear before the main menu (the credits), I see just random pixels. Then, when the main menu appears, everything goes fine again (I use Win ME with an ATI RADEON MOBILITY graphics card)

- The items should never go outside the playable area (that happens in the bonus block to the left of the starting point), they should remain inside the screen where the player can pick them up.

- The collision of the bullets with the ground is not very precise, and sometimes it is very difficult to kill a creature that you have very near if the ground is not flat (this is the most anoying thing I've found in the game)

- Moreover, when you are killed because you have fallen, you appear just in the edge of the last platform where you have stood, and sometimes it is very difficult not to fall again from there!

atherwise than that, the game is great! and I hope to finish it this weekend!!! THANX DEX FOR THIS IMPRESSIVE GAME!!!

@Eponymous >>

Oddly, the full link available on the seta didn't work with a download manager program (NetAnts, GetRight etc.). I used to get the link from softgames.de. I clicked on the link to download it, then IE ask me to download, I decline, and copy the full link to NetAnts. It has worked, but not with the link on the seta... I dunnot understand, it's the same !

Those of you who have a slow connection, why don't simply go to an internet cafe (with a high-speed line) and download it there? then just carry it home using a USB-pendrive. The server where T4 funeral is is quite fast, I've downloaded it at my work at an average of 150KB/sec! So it just takes 5-6 minutes.

Simply because USB keys are too many expensive to save 60 Mo...

so, about the issue with the main sprite standing in the ship at the beginning it is only the assault suit! turrican "switches it on" it is too hard to explain - just look at his eyes - you can see that they are off at the start - and then they are on when the game starts of course this is only in the first level - because turrican is already IN the ship, i thought it would be useless if he "beams" into the ship he came from

@Dex. Is it possible to replace the switched-off Turrican-suit with the original sprite? I like to play with the original sprite, so I have replaced the file, but that doesn't alter the switched-off Turrican offcourse. Can you please make a switched-off suit with the original Turrican, for old-skool junkies like me...

Hello again.I've managed to download the game using getright but i must say it was pretty tricky.You must be fast enough to copy the link shown right after you klick the game download button.The game is very nice but one thing that really annoyed me(it might be a bug,i dont know)is the hitting point of the first boss of the game.I could only damaged him when shooting from left to right.Odd isn't it?

@Dex:

Ich hab noch einen Bug...ich hab nämlich einfach zu lange gebraucht es durchzuspielen und dann war es für den Spass, den ich hatte einfach zu kurz *grins*

Und dann noch ein deprimierendes Ende...wo war denn das Anime-Girl das ich retten wollte?

War gut, bin auch nichtmehr rausgeflogen nachdem ich 3D ausgeschaltet hatte. Und ich hab es aufmich genommen UP doch auf einen Button zu legen, das treibt einen zwar im Wasserlevel zum Wahnsinn, dafür konnte ich aber in den anderen präziser Springen.

Übrigens coole Abkürzung im ersten Level, wenn man da einfach mal rechts ins leere springt wo man nach links gehen soll...

to get the download with getright go to the download page, load Getright, and hold ctrl+alt+left mouse button and Getright will capture the link.

When I say left mouse button I mean click on the download link (ctrl+alt+leftmouseclick on download link).

I've found a liitle, annoying bug: when you're fighting against the first boss, when you want to shoot him from right side, it's impossible. The shoots will hit only if you're shooting from right side. It's very annoying, but rest is absolutely khool.
