• My Juiced.GS came with a floppy disk!

    From D Finnigan@21:1/5 to All on Sun Jan 2 03:11:44 2022
    I got my issue of Juiced.GS last week and was surprised to find a blue 3.5" floppy disk in the envelope too! It's a game for the Apple IIgs, and the magazine talks about it. Has anyone played this game yet?

    I don't have my Apple IIgs set up right now, but I should bring it out so I
    can play this game.

    It's called Passengers of the Wind. It was originally in French. You can
    guess who did the translation. ;-)

    Is it complete now? I thought the original prototype was playable but not finished.

    I don't know. Probably the Juiced.GS articles says, but I just skimmed over
    it; didn't read the whole thing. :-/

    Happy New Year!

    Les passagers du vent (Passengers on the wind) now:
    - is finished, you can fully play and discover the missing last picture,
    - uses the gfx from the Amiga version, more colors than the original Thomson gfx,
    - allows multiple load/save games, whereas the original was limited to one,
    - is multilingual, five languages when there were five different versions when it was really released,
    - plays a great MIDI Synth music, when the original music was using Note Synthesizer.

    In terms of gameplay, the game is the same, but you can finish it (before playing episode 2 ;-))

    Enjoy!
    Antoine

    A week later and still no one else has said anything about playing the game! How sad! :-(

    Well this morning I played it. I made a Disk Copy image of the disk using an SE/30, then copied the image to a Mac with a Sweet16 emulator to play.

    I read the manual too. What an exciting story! And so French. But I need to read volume 1 of the comic. Anyone know where I can find this? I will not
    spend the rest of my days in prison.
