I found the demo for an Amiga game I worked on - can anyone help me get it to run?

Recommended Posts

Towards the end of the Amiga days, some friends and I made an Amiga game called Prototype, which was released by F1 Software. I've never found a copy of it online, but around 2006/7 I found a copy of the demo on Aminet. I got it to run back then, backed it up to an old hard drive and forgot all about it. I just found the drive last night, and tried to get it to run in WinUAE, but cannot for the life of me remember how I did it.


I set up WinUAE with the Kickstart 3.1 rom, and boot into Workbench 3.1 with the folder the game files are in set up as a hard drive. The readme that comes with demo says it needs to be installed to a hard drive. There are two icons in the folder, one to install to HD, one to run the game. If I run the installer, I get this :




If I try to run the game, I get this :




Here is the file structure of the folder I set up as a hard drive.




If anyone can help, that would be amazing. There is no information about the game seemingly anywhere on the internet. I'd like to be able to make a youtube video about it or something, or at least be able to see it running again. I can provide the files if you need them to try and get it running.

I'm super rusty on Amiga stuff but:


1). open the command line and try:


"Assign fonts df0:fonts"


where df0: is your floppy drive.


but if you've got a hard drive setup with workbench installed it's weird there isn't already a fonts volume set up so 2). Find the fonts folder on your hard drive and copy the contents of the game fonts folder into it.
