If you're gonna use the Polymost renderer then please also support replacement skyboxes :) I extracted the sky backdrops from the game and put them in this album if anyone wants to have a go at making some https://imgur.com/a/saOfP

I don't think I like this new gritty reboot of Pac-man...

This is a very cool topic.

Do you have any info on level editing possibilities in Powerslave EX?

What are these Saturn levels which are totally absent from PS1 version?

Ok Jackie, now it's my turn...

I don't remember which levels, but 2 entire maps have the same name but are completely different. Then, you have about half of 2 other levels which are also different + tons of other changes in other maps.

Just play the Saturn version, it's great

If only I had Saturn. It was a great console. But having them all with these memcards, joypads and stuff is a big trouble. There is some life besides gaming after all ;-)

Thanks for the info.

It works perfectly emulated using yabause 0.9.15. Trust me, I did a speedrun of the game on real hardware, so I'd have noticed if anything was wrong emulated. The only difference is that the background image during loading screens doesn't appear, big deal.
Probably works using other Saturn emus too.

I'm trying the latest version of the Dehacker.
It's pretty good, running the game in higher resolution... even just running it in 800*600 makes a substantial difference.

However it feels like there is something wrong with the way strafing "always on" is handled. You see, Anubis warriors' fireballs are made so that they'll fire in the direction they think you're going if you're strafing; but when using the dehacker they just seem to fire in very random directions. I've seen several of them literaly turn around to fire 120° behind them when I'm right in front of them.

Edit : I've also noticed a visual glitch which seem to be based on distance and view angle: entire parts disappear? Never seen this before

Another thing I noticed with the dehacker is that it seems that some sprites appear darker than they should; for instance compare the ammo belt in those 2 screenshots

Has anyone else had a problem with the mouse in Powerslave EX? When I try to look around the mouse only moves a few degrees in any direction and then defaults back to the center of the screen. So currently I'm being forced to play it with an Xbox controller (and yes I tried unplugging it, the mouse problem remained).

Same here. Seems like a Win10 Fall Update issue. I had it in a couple of other games. No idea how to fix that.

Here's a little something I just noticed in relation to the Powerslave girls mentioned in another thread. There's a bunch of screenshots from Exhumed that were published on the cover CD of the Score magazine issue 29 (May 1996), with two showing a secret with two girls in the background:
Posted Image Posted Image

At first I assumed that the scene was from somewhere later in the game (I hardly played past the fourth level), but upon closer inspection it seems to be the semi-secret area in MAP03, but it is actually quite different. In the final game, there are two dancers and two drummers, along with some powerups and a save scarab. Here's what the area looks like in the December 1996 demo (a close-up of the area behind the bars):

So the screenshots in Score are definitely from an earlier version. Perhaps the girls in question were changed due to some form censorship, as at least one of them (on the right) is definitely NSFW, and actually I'm not sure if these particular sprites are used anywhere in the game (but they still are present in the data files of at least some versions, including the August 1996 demo from the PC Gamer CD (demo details and dates can be checked here).

Here's the whole bunch of screenshots from the Score 29 CD in case you're able to spot more differences:

Video games remix powa! (y)
I asked for 4 remix, the other themes were too much "atmospheric" I think.

I just checked the PC Gamer demo and the secret area is the same as in the December 1996 one, even though LEV3.MAP is the only level file that is different from the December demo, as noted here (I guess they changed something else).

I'm curious about this new port as well. Powerslave is easily the 4th best Build game.

After hearing about a shotgun that was cut out of the final version of Powerslave, I decided to compare the art assets between the beta/first shareware version and the final version. While there was no shotgun I noticed quite a number of differences between the two, some subtle, others immediately noticable, and decided to compile a few animated comparisons between the two
