# blues for AmigaOS 4.1 FE

blues is a game engine developed by Gregory Montoir and found at his
GitHub repository (https://github.com/cyxx/blues)

This engine supports three games developed by Titus Interactive,
which are the "Blues Brothers", the "Blues Brothers: Jukebox Adventure"
and the "Prehistorik 2"

## Installation

Extract the archive wherever you want. There are three folders, one
for each game. In these folders there is the executable and a *data*
folder where you need to copy the data files for each game.
Please read below for more info about these files.

### Blues Brothers

The data files of the Amiga or DOS version, full game or
demo (https://archive.org/details/TheBluesBrothers_1020), are
required.

```
*.BIN, *.CK1, *.CK2, *.SQL, *.SQV, *.SQZ
```

For sounds and music, the Amiga version files or the
ExoticA (https://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/The_Blues_Brothers) set
need to be copied.

### Jukebox Adventure

The data files of the DOS version are required.

```
*.EAT, *.MOD
```

### Prehistorik 2

The data files of the DOS version, full game or
demo (http://cd.textfiles.com/ccbcurrsh1/demos/pre2.zip), are
required.

```
*.SQZ, *.TRK
```

## Usage

```
Usage: blues [OPTIONS]...
  --datapath=PATH   Path to data files (default '.')
  --level=NUM       Start at level NUM
  --cheats=MASK     Cheats bitmask
  --startpos=XxY    Start at position (X,Y)

## I would like to thank

- Gregory Montoir for creating this awesome engine and open sourcing it
- Capehill for his tireless work on SDL port for AmigaOS 4.1 FE

## Support

If you enjoy what I am doing and would like to keep me up during the night,
please consider to buy me a coffee at:
https://ko-fi.com/walkero

## Known issues

- Please avoid using the fullscreen because some times it breaks
  the game in some situations. Prefer to use --scale
- By default the game loads the data files from the data folder.
  It is not tested if those are in a different place and it might fail
- If you have problems in graphics (black screen, missing sprites)
  try different SDL renderer in prefs
