Daniel Caetano has a great christmas present for all of us. Today, he released new versions of his translation projects Snatcher English and Snatcher Portuguese.

Snatcher is now fully translated into english and is also playable from disks and harddisks without the use of external floppy disk emulators such as FDDemu, Start or EP. Also, the game loader automatically detects the soundchip (SCC/SCC+/PSG) and expanded cartridgeslots are supported. Furthermore, the capslock light indicates when the game is loading data.

On harddisk the savegame is made directly in the file SNATCHER.SAV, so it's much easier to exchange and make savegame backups. The utility DSK2SAV is provided to help you extract .SAV files from a disk or image file and SAV2DSK is provided so you can update your disk with your newest .SAV file.

Last but not least, the translated game can now handle up to 1 mbyte of extra data. Of course you need extra memory for this, but it comes in very handy. The english version has almost 30kbyte of texts and the english version also needs 16kbyte more memory than the portuguese version, because of the 'formal' style of the used english language.
