    Unfortunately Final Fight - Revival of Rage is incompatible: tested wit latest OpenBOR and after 1st Boss, game doesn't progress (also, end game selection from pause menu doesn't work), with version 6391 it produces heavy artifacts (plus some debug info all around the screen) while with old OpenBOR version it doesn't even load and quits immediately. Well, we can rule this out.

    @Templario

    Sounds like you have installed latest beta tinygl from Mark? If so, you need the fix which can be found here.

    Yes, I installed to see the new TinyGL.

    Does Evil Dead has music on you? I do get sound effects but no music while ingame.

    @all

    Unfortunately Avengers: United Battle Force seems to be incompatible. Crashes upon initial loading with latest version, quits even before loading with old version while ver. 6139 produces a lot of artifacts ingame. That's a pity though, 'cause the game is considered to be one of the very - very best around the OpenBOR community.

    Above tests are being conducted with latest SDL (SDL_2.24.0), in case that affects anything.

    Yeap, I confirm video playback is way faster with latest SDL. Still, color has a red hue. So is this a SDL or OpenBor bug, BeWorld, what do you think?

    I also confirm I am now getting ingame music on Evil Dead Redux. Agreed, this game should also be uploaded to morphos storage, very high quality game indeed Papi :)

    @Cool_amigaN, yeah in OpenGL mode, you are video in red "mode", not in SDL mode
    because video use YUV mode and need shaders for that :-)

    I think when new tinygl support "fragment shaders", I could rebuild OpenBOR with it.

    @Papi

    Ah, didn't test it with SDL on ver. 6391, good catch. Nevertheless, pls include a readme, on how the user should be using it, imo.

    @BeWorld

    Noted. Hope Mark can finish it fast, so we can have a new perfected version of OpenBOR :)

    @all

    Knights and Dragons - The Endless Quest, created by Pierwolf is probably the best Dungeons & Dragons available on OpenBOR. Latest version (3.3), can be safely downloaded here (Chronochrash's link seems broken to me). This game is rather old but used to be incompatible with previous versions of OpenBOR, however now works perfectly with latest one (OpenGL too). Difficult game, you must use defense button when fighting 'cause your health gauge is minimum.

    Final Fight Apocalypse - 2nd Edition works fine too. Created by Mr. Q (Rhythm of Destruction, Art of Fighting, Double Dragon series), it's rather old and could be considered as a DLC under modern gaming language, since it's more or less of the same characters with same moves under different background set. It's fine for a spin but not as good as other options discussed in the thread.

    Final Fight and Cadillacs (ver. 2.0) is much more interesting while being a much newer mod too (2021). Though the game loads and plays fine in the beginning, after 2nd stage it starts to lose fps up to the point it crawls and becomes unplayable. This, on a G4@1.6Ghz, perhaps a thorough test under G5 would be useful imo.

    @Papi

    Since you are at it, check and upload also Justice League Legacy. Together with Avengers: United Battle Force, these are the best two Super Heroes mods. JLL started developed around 2017 and latest update was just 6 months ago (think it's based on a previous effort of same dev. "Justice League United"), it's a very big game (about 380MB PAK file and requires 250-400MB free RAM on MorphOS, depending on the level), works perfectly with latest OpenBOR (OpenGL too) with operational ingame sidekicks too, which is a cool feature. It sports more than 60 characters, each with a special move, be sure not to miss it.

    Some further testing for all of you to enjoy :)

    Splatterhouse Trilogy is an oldie but goldie horror mod that works perfectly (in case you liked Evil Dead, try this too).

    Asterix And Caesar'S Challenge is an also old mod which works perfectly (and it's the only Asterix themed mod too). A bit hard though, better if you have a friend playing together.

    Fighters History Revenge is an intermediate release (2016), again by the legendary developer Pierwolf and works perfectly. It's a typical beat 'em up without any particular strength. It's ok for a try but nothing close being as an unforgettable experience.

    Super Fightin' Spirit is a spin off from the famous Amiga game, remade as a brawler. Really colourful with smooth gameplay. Runs perfectly and sidekicks work too (up to 2). Another oldie but nostalgia hits hard on this one ;)

    GI Joe: Assault on Cobra Island (ver. 1.2) seems to quitting immediately after launch. Can someone else re-test pls?

    Even further tests :)

    Beat Em Up Ultimate Alliance is a recent mod (2019). In some forums it's listed as beta in some others as complete. Works great though and can be downloaded here. It's an extremely good remix of various beat 'em ups and it's based on SOR2X (hence it's solid;)). Big pack (360MB HD) and requires a lot of free ram (approx 500MB, depending on the level).

    Btw, the rather old but famous Balance of Power also works great. Used to be one of the greatest brawlers on OpenBOR community but imo today shows a lot of its age. It's fine for nostalgic reasons but if you haven't played it, skip it, as there as better games around.

    Pestilaence has been released just a month ago. Works great. It has a horror theme as cross mix between Splatterhouse / Evil Dead with Postal / Resident Evil atmosphere. Don't really liked but if you appreciate the genre, be sure to play it.

    Street Fighter Taiwan, is also a very interesting remix with a background set of.. yeap, you guessed it, Taiwan :P It's small and compact and you can download it, here.

    TURRICAN vs TERMINATOR is another recent mod (2021) that works great too and deserves a home on morphos-storage imo. It's a crossover from our beloved Turri vs Terminator-like and similarly inspired enemies shoot 'em up. Be sure to give it a chance! You can download it,
    here :)

    X-Men Hunter for Mutants works too. It's an intermediate release (2016), has some interesting gameplay concepts but overall is rather weak and doesn't deserve a lot of attention. You can give it a go, here.

    Edit: Papio, check your PM. Also, when you have some free time, pls check GI Joe and let me know if it works for you.
