But whatever you do, don’t waste your time because your opponent is shooting back.

Rise of the Triad (GP32 game port)

You probably read a few news about this one allready on other console news pages, finally it’s out. The file was linked by a guy called”Dozer”… just look for it. After you get the file make sure you have the FULL VERSION .wad of ROTT on your GP32. Please note that the FULL VERSION is still avaliable to buy and it’s still illegal to grab the FULL VERSION somewhere from the net. The provided RAR file only contains the exectuable for the GP32. No other files…http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php?act=ST&f=4&t=4242

PDRoms Coding Compo – Rules update!

A small update to the rules. I got a few questions about using external files. As long as you use them for highscore or savegame saving it’s perfectly okay and will not count to the 256kb limit (games only). For GP32 I allow only non overclocked entries. That means, no FXE should run faster than 133 MHZ.http://www.pdroms.de/pdrc1-rules.php
