Heart of the Alien Redux
« on: January 30, 2012, 03:28:25 am »
Hello guys, here's a port of  Heart of the Alien Redux for Dingux

Installation
You'll need the original Sega CD game files. The script "hota.dge" is ready to run the game iso + mp3 format. For that, just copy the iso file and all files in mp3 format of the game to the "hota" folder, same folder where the script "hota.dge" is located. Now just run the file "hota.dge" with your favorite application launcher.
If necessary, edit the script "hota.dge" according to your needs, see the options available in the README.

Controls
Y - Shoot, hold to run
B - Use the whip
A - Jump
L - Quicksave (1 slot)
R - Quickload
X - Speed up the game
Select - Quit game or jump animation

Thanks for your great work shin-nil.
But when I launch hota.dge, it results in a crash and there's written (in the terminal) : "can't find game2.bin".
What's my problem?

Did you copy the Sega CD game files (iso + mp3) to the hota folder? You'll need this files once Hota Redux is only a interpreter for it ;)

Thanks Shin-NiL! A frustrating game, but nice to see running on the Dingoo!

Did you read the doc? Your .iso and .mp3 files must have the "Heart of the Alien (U)" and be stored in the same folder as hota.dge.

the name of my iso is "Out of this World 2 - Heart of the Alien.iso" and the mp3 files are "Out of this World 2 - Heart of the Alien xx.mp3".
with the same files the game runs (very slowly, but runs) with picodrive.

As Pingouin said, try to rename your files with the prefix "Heart of the Alien (U)".

Heart of the Alien (U).iso
Heart of the Alien (U) 02.mp3
Heart of the Alien (U) 03.mp3
Heart of the Alien (U) xx.mp3

...

Does not work With Dingoo A380. Renamed the files accordingly but the game will not start.
