James Daniels writes: Apex Designs have posted the final status report on Payback. The game has now gone gold and should be ready to go on sale in 2 weeks, with a playable demo being released at the same time. The report gives details of the latest features to be added to the game (which include an intro animation and a map editor) as well as revealing the box design and some of the advertising campaign.

A very professional box, I must say. I thing I'll buy the game, yah, even just from the looks of it ;o) These ppl have understood what design is about ;o) Amiga, learn some marketing. I think I would like to contribute to a site design there, yes! Mail me apex!

Yeah, I'll buy it too even if it looks quite expensive (60 euros from KDH). At least finally we see good quality Amiga games coming all the time, I hope people whould vote for more by buying them !

Well I preordered mine a while ago and cant wait -- it should be really good fun.
And I have a couple of days off just after it is supposed to arrive so guess what I will be doing :-)

I'd be quite interested in buying this game, but only if it doesn't use RTG Master. Can anyone clarify that the game doesn't use RTGMaster?

I have a really bad experience with RTGMaster, but it won't stop me. RTGMaster apps/games/demos seem to crash all the time on my system. If I see a game using it, I often just remove it from HD. But perhaps I have to get a new version?

I just installed a newer version of rtgmaster, so I guess the old wrongs has been set right. An update has been uploaded to the aminet just before the release I downloaded now, which tells about a fatal bug...

Sorry, but I just don't or rather my system doesn'tm get on with RTGMaster at all. Napalm crashes all the time, Bubble Heroes does too. Sorry. ;)

Hmm, Napalm never once crashed on me, or Bubble Heroes for that matter.
Maybe try a different version of RTGmaster?

In reply to Comment 8 (Daniel Allsopp):
Humm, the biggest problem i have/had with RTGmaster is when one switches from CGX to P96 or the other way
around. You should reinstall RTGMaster in that case. Also Bppcfix helps and always DL
the latest version :)

Personally, I've got nothing against RTG Master - but no, Payback
doesn't use it.

Thanks for the info James, I will be trying the demo ASAP, and if it's as good as everyone says it is, I'll be placing my order!

I got a bunch of crashes with Napalm until I got more than 16Mb memory. Never crashed since. :)

Will it run on AGA?
Sorry, but I just haven't seen a cost-effective way of getting a gfx card on my A1200. :(

In reply to Comment 12 (James Daniels):
Ah ! I'm *really* glad Payback doesn't use RTGMaster.
I've had a lot of problems with it. Took me more than one year to get Napalm to work.
Ok, not all of these were rtgmaster's fault.. but it left me with a bad feeling ;-}
Now that the lastest rtgmaster is correctly installed on my system, the last bug that really... bugs me,
is that when I switch screens rtgmaster programs continue to draw into the Workbench screen !! :-(

Agreed on both points! It looks and plays great -- hopefully it
will be available from people other than Blittersoft and Apex??
