Clock Tower

  • Ich habs mal auf dem Everdrive probiert, der Hack funktioniert und die Steuerung mit der Maus tut dem Spiel auch richtig gut! Hatte nie verstanden warum es hier keine Maussteuerung vom Haus aus gab!


    Der Hack selbst soll auch noch nicht ganz komplett sein, der Autor will noch die restlichen Neuerungen der PS1 Version auf das SNES übertragen, bin schon gespannt auf das Ergebnis!

  • Es gab bei der PS1 Version einen Zusätzlichen Raum, die Clownpuppe und den Zombie, Hot Spots waren anders Positioniert auch der Schlüssel lag wo anders. Grafiken waren besser Positioniert und es gab Nahaufnahmen von Gegenständen wenn man sie angesehen hat. In der Readme sind schon einige änderungen aufgeführt die er schon gemacht hat:


    Mouse support

    Lost bedroom, clown doll, zombie, extra cave event ported from the PlayStation version

    Can run up and down the stairs (can also run to all hotspots)

    Hold UP or DOWN to speed up the credits

    Faster health regeneration

    Region error screen disabled


    --- Mouse ---

    Left button: walk/ click things

    Right button: stop/ panic button

    Press SELECT to change mouse speed (on real hardware). Changes cursor speed for the gamepad instead if no mouse connected.

    Move the cursor down to access the inventory. Right clicking there will switch to the default cursor.
