If my posts appear rude to you, I apologize. It's not meant to be rude in any way, it's just the way folks are in my country. It's really more about being direct than being rude. I know how it's perceived in the english speaking community and I already try to tone it down but I barely notice when it's too much since it's normal for me.

 

So yeah, I'm really not rude it's basically just cultural differences that act against me here. Again, I apologize.

The classic Ultramarine game has been released as freeware by its developer, Abel Alves.  Link:
 
[url=http://www.comicsabelalves.com/p/ultramarine-retro-game.html]http://www.comicsabelalves.com/p/ultramarine-retro-game.html[/url]
 
Don't feel bad you didn't get to play this when it initially came out.  It had a very limited release in European arcades and was ported to the Amiga and Commodore 64 back in IIRC the late '80s maybe?  The graphics were awesome for the time (still really holds up IMHO) and featured a rocking soundtrack and even some voice acting (like when picking up special/heavy weapons).
 
My favourite aspect of it is how it used EARLY 1st ed Rogue Trader terms, like instead of Multimelta it says "Fusion Rifle".
 
Just two pieces of advice for new players:
 
1. don't save your special/heavy weapon ammo as it's plentiful, just use your guns as soon as you get them
 
2. destroyed vehicles have a lingering explosion, you'll see it, just wait until the animation's done before proceeding

Btw, I was kidding when I said this game came out in the '80s.  It's an awesome new game designed in that 8-bit style, totes fan-made.

I'm getting a weird message when I go to the site and hit download. Says something about needing a software update, but I'm unsure that it's on the level. Has anyone else had this problem? I'd love to play the game and it'd be a shame if I couldn't because the download link got hacked/bugged/other. I've never downloaded a game like this before so I am unsure just what to do and if this redirect software page is legitimate or not.
 
One thing that had me suspiscious is the fact that I get a 'don't leave this page' message when I click the 'x' to close the browser.
 
 
Spoiler

Here's the text of the thing, minus the download instructions and EULA of the software (removed for wall-of-text-ness).

Mate thats a virus, delete what it downloaded on your computer and close the tab. You clicked on an ad instead of the main download button, I'll show you the real download button in your inbox.

Thanks for giving us a heads up about this.  I didn't come across the issue, so I tried to reproduce it on different browsers (which I keep for exactly this sort of reason).

 

I also reckon you clicked an ad instead of the download button, because I literally saw an ad designed to look like a download button, on this download site:

 

gallery_57329_13636_24658.jpg

 

This is just a sample, ads are generated based on your locale, etc.  And as you well know, by design they're trying to incentivise people to click on them.

 

Mentioning this because it's not this developer's/artist's fault.  He just wanted to share something cool.  The only problem was he used a free hosting service, which happened to have shady ads depending on the broker (and remember, they don't even pay HIM, he's got nothing to do with it).  I think he should have just gone for something simpler like OneDrive or Google Drive.

 

I don't know this guy, but I'll try to pass on word of this issue and recommend he use a better hosting service instead.  Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the help guys, downloaded it without further trouble and am having great fun playing it. Key-binds are a little odd, and I haven't gotten past the 1st level, but those are personal things and not the developer. Fun game, and I am glad he made it.

Plugged in a controller and made it to level 2, Necrons are brutal. They get back up shooting and you can't kill them while they're laying down (that I've found anyway).

I contacted the guy behind this, just thanking you on his behalf for your comments.

 

I talked to him about using something like Google Drive, thanks to your suggestion.  As soon as I looked at the download link I immediately saw anyone could have come across the same issue and I really appreciate your pointing it out.  Dude's just a fan making stuff for fans.

 

The Orks stage took me another try.  Remember on the boss, you can backtrack and retreat to grab the other weapon.  The Necrons are kicking my butt right now.  They got the "I'll Be Bach" thing and shoot me from behind after I get past them.  It's totally do-able, but it's like the NES style where I have to learn the stage.

 

Totally understand if people don't want to download this in an age of Russian and North Korean hackers and just scammers everywhere.  I just want to say this is the most fun 40k game since DoW II for me.  I kinda want to make a 500 pt Ultramarine army based on this concept, but I gotta play further to figure out what to take.

Thanks for the heads up.  If you don't mind doing this one favour, please maybe let us maybe your Operating System or any possible reason for the error.

 

I'll email the guy again and point him to this thread, so that he may study and fix the issue for you and all other players.  Thanks a lot in advance.

I posted this up the other day, but admin deleted it sad.png


Yes, it was hidden by one of the moderators because it wasn't an official product and because of the potential for malware. After discussion among the mods and admins, it was decided to allow the link, as with any other announcements of homegrown things.

Since the potential for malware (not of the product itself, but via the site from which it is downloaded) has come to fruition, all of the links are now enclosed in the code tags. Anyone that wants to get the game is still free to follow the URL, but has to manually enter/copy and paste the URL.

And I've merged M@verik115's original topic and Not 1 Step Backwards' follow-on.

Be careful what you download.

Thanks for responding, Brother.

 

I have windows 10, I extracted all three files and put them into the same folder. Not sure what other diagnostics I can preform, I'm not super computer savvy.

 

I'm not sure either, but in the off-chance it helps, I have 5 files in my folder.  1 of them is the Readme file, which isn't required, but this might be something to check for:

Everything but the Readme file is required. That's probably where the issues are coming from.
