Was also interested in your piece on OLION and its Korean credits. For comparison, here are the full credits for the original PC6001 version: Based upon the idea by: Larry Miller Programmed for PC6001 by: Akira Takeuchi Music arranged by: Hiromi Ohba Character Design: L.Miller & A.Takeuchi Additional Character Design by: Akan Bee C.D.C Sound Advisor: Junpei Ryotsu System Analyzer: Ken Fujisawa Directed by: Mitsuhiro Mitsuda I can only assume 'Tarry Miller' was a typo on the Korean version. Although I still don't know who Larry Miller, but like you say he may have been some sci-fi writer.
The PC6001 version also had the Star Trek and Indiana Jones theme music on the title screen :p
Cool, now I can fill in the founding date for the company.
Suna didn't turn into We Company, though. After all, they continued making arcade machines until 2005, and an older version of the We homepage (web.archive.org/web/19991111153112/http://www.wecorp.co.kr/cgit/MyHistory.html) reveals that it's one of their divisions that spun off and established itself as a new company.
Hi all, I've been reading the 'History of Korean Gaming' series and there are many interesting beta/lost games.
In particular, Does anyone know more about the development of the Fox Ranger series or it's different versions? Are any known to exist?
I have acquired a version of Fox Ranger 3 which has the majority of it's files dated to mid 1996 but the main NF43.BAT file is dated 1997. I haven't been able to get it running because it keeps asking for a CD so I can't test it right now.
Here are the contents of an NFO file that came with the game, not exactly sure what it's trying to say. This could be one of those pre-retail pirate releases.
FOX RANGER - LAST REVELATION (c) DIGITAL WAVE [XX/49] PLATFORM ACTION GAME by IND Unzip and Unrar them to any drive then run install.exe and run SATM\FR\nf43.bat this game suppose to release by big game group but due to the lame demo of this company said 1996 this game is not dupe.. and never release just like Garfeild in the TV land.. the demo screen also said "sega 1996" enjoy it ...
If it's allowed, I'll put up a link to the game. Also if there are any demos, shareware or other preview type things for these games, please let me know!
