Old Amiga Projects Dug Up

A few months back I was clearing out my old room in my parents house, while digging though my old stuff I found my old Amiga hard drive. I plugged it in to my PC and booted it with WinUAE, to my surprise everything worked exactly as I left it in the 90s.

Here are some gifs of two BlitzBasic projects I was working on. Since I wasn’t the best student I didn’t have the opportunity to learn about linear algebra at school, so these are written using trig only. Now let’s all be thankful we live in the internet age.

These source files were dated 1996 and 1997, I had an Amiga long past it’s death. The Doom/Wolfenstein clone uses inline assembler to copy from the Amiga’s regular memory to planar layout graphics memory, as Amiga custom graphics hardware really pushed limits in the 1980s, and didn’t really allow for the possibility of textured 3D.

I would really like to post source for these but the Blitz Basic editor doesn’t save in ASCII and I have to find a way to convert it.
