The rights to Warhawk belong jointly to Myself, Ian (Badtoad) and andrew betts (Carter).. so that is ok..

Horace in the Mystic Woods returned to me several years ago (as did Stigma).. So, I do not own the rights to Horace, but.. I own the rights to the game HTM.

It is all a bit confusing to be honest?

The iPhones resolution would be perfect for Horace (or any Psion 3 game for that matter) but I think Horace would be too hard to control. Not all games are equally well suited to the hardware but perhaps it's possible with the right approach. I haven't tried that many games yet so I haven't seen so many ways of doing things.

Anyway, congrats on a 3rd place, although beaten by a music game and a painting game?...that sucks. :-/

Actually, that sounds quite good, meaning that you guys basically have the rights to push the title on different platform. As for Horace, I don't understand, the rights for the  Mystic Wood returned to you or what?

And yes, Iphone would be perfect for Horace, I took quite a liking for the weird fluffy monster lately for no obvious reason, hmm. As for controls, trust me-speed run with Horace on Iphone would be far more suitable than with arcade controls. Reason for it is that your fingers wouldn't hurt.  Tongue

Well the HITMW game belongs to me, but.. the Horace character and ip still belongs to Beam software.. so... The Horace game is still possible?

Perhaps!

Kay, well..Beam software doesn't exist in that way anymore, they point to Melbourne House and MH is now Krome Studios? Horace copyright will be in W. Tang's hands regardless of whether Beam exists anymore. It could be (or could be not) that they somehow merged with MH and © willingly transferred to them (as possible by law). Then again, that's not important as Horace is not a trademarked character and © can easily be attributed to Mr. Tang. I'm confused as to how and what kind of rights you have for the Mystic Woods? Is it just a title or usage of the character or ONLY and exclusively for the Psion platform? I'm sure that you hold all the credits in regard to making it though but that's different.

Now, in order to make it clear, please answer these questions as clear as possible, failure to do so is punishable by spanking.
So, how did it happen, did you just woke up one day and decided to make it on Psion or was there any conversation between you and Beam/MH to bring it to the Psion? I know you mention somewhere that Psion folks asked for..something, Horace in particular or any title you want? Did you ever had any contact with Beam/MH at all about MysticWoods?
Did you actually designed the whole bloody thing and the idea is yours?

You have until Tuesday to answer all this.  Cool

Ok,

I was contacted by Psion PLC to do a Horace game for the psion. The actual idea of the game (minus the character) is mine and Psion had no involvement in the design or execution. I then sold the game to Psion and the contract of sale was (i believe) 3 years.
So, where does that leave it now? Mr. Tang (we believe) passed on. Psion is no longer a software publisher, and I have a strange rash on my testicles. Hmmm

So, the gameplay and design is still owned by Proteus Developments? The Horace character belongs to? Who?

I just got the Warhawk DS to work on my new green Nintendo DS Lite, so I see the game in first time on the real DS  Smiley. I do need to have the card formatted with SDFormatter before the 8GB Micro-SD card got work.

The speaker do missing some bass, but have not tried to use headphone now as well, but still sound really nice on the real hw.

Thanks to include the SF logo on start-up (only why I re downloaded it again). It was not in because I did not create one when the game first got released :-D. I do still got credited by text on title screen.

Bronze for all homebrew is really really nice, and for games this was the top game in the competition.

EDIT: Spelling on the news: Warhwk?

Ok, for the rash, take a saguaro cactus and hold it in your underwear for a week, the indian chief told me that is the only cure for otherwise abnormal condition.

Mystic Woods belongs to you, Horace belongs to me and all your bases are be...wait, let's not.

Anyway I updated Warhawk the other day to include the new intro graphics made for MMLL. And it also includes the Space Fractal logo now so you might want to download this one for your flash card.

Link? Can't find it on http://headsoft.com.au/ website... or is it 1.02 again?

Yes, it is the same version.

Did not really warrant a version change just for a couple of altererd intro graphics really..

Wow!!! I love reading this thread!

Reminds me of a collaboration between me and my artist friend in which we used a forum to develop a game.

http://www.shmup-dev.com/forum/index.php/topic,884.0.html

BTW, we didn't win an the game was very "unbalanced".

I love this board!!

It is quite nice to show the dev via a forum, though we did fall a little foul of it when the sites started posting our very early demos, a bit embarrassing.
Did not really learn by the mistake and the same think happened with the early manic miner builds as well.

Still, it is once to look back on now and again.
