I think all the key cards are always in the same place, atleast 1-4 are.

Not sure where Im headed next but I return to sub level 3 for health and ammo on occasion.



Found the motion tracker, its a big help actually lol.

I am not sure if this very short E3'97 camera footage from a cancelled PS1 port of AvP was shared on the forum before but here it is.

Was that a port of the Jag version, or the Rebellion PC?

It was supposed to be a new game based on Jag version with all unused ideas included. And the whole project ended up as AvP 1999 on PC.

Having put a few hours into AvPJag I am really digging the slower survival horror type pace.

Its a huge contrast to AvP99, which is fast and all action.

Ive really kinda been hooked now, I have a whole new appreciation for this game after giving it a chance.

Here is a video clip showing a compilation of screenshots from an article about cancelled version of AvP from 1997. It seems they wanted to use the same method of creating characters like in Jag version (digitized: human actors and figurines of Aliens and Predators).

So you use a native save system instead of emulator one? This is good; no cheating.

Would you like to see more Alien/Predator games made like this one but with all modern bells and whistles?

Corporal Hicks

I've been using save states in the Emulator. The saves I make in the game disappear once I exit the game.

Yesh ive been using the in game saves, seems to work good.

Just can't seem escape the medlab on sub level 4 with the the 6th key.

I have a save from before I went for the card but I dont want to start again that far back. just hoping one of these attempts I can make it back out of the medlab/vents alive.

You are right. I have checked as well. However after your death (without exiting the game) in the game saves work. Therefore a real hardware emulation can be recreated with a combination of the emulator saves.

Is it with a combination of the emulator saves i.e. you start the emulator and game, then load the emulator save, then play with using in the game saves and save with the emulator saves before closing it?

Somehow I feel that I would enjoy the 1997 cancelled version more than the released 1999 one.

Im not going to lie, when it comes to emulators I don't know what i'm doing, I actually had to get help to get it working. i click the save state to start and when I am done the next time I die I exit the program. when I start it back up I click the save state which starts where I left off at the high score screen and I load my last ingame save

This is what I thought. Once you start using the emulator, it creates a save state itself before you exit the program because its automatic save option is turn on from the get-go. Then the next time you load the last emulator automatic save state created for the game instead of loading the game itself. Therefore you can load the in game save.

After many many many deaths I finally retrieved the security 6 and made it back to a safe area and reloaded my heath and ammo. It was a brutal experience.

Then I took a trip to up a few levels and by chance found security card 7, with ease too lol :laugh:

- edit- I went and checked out the predator ship and walked away with a smart gun and security card 9. Never found 8 though. Not sure what to do next but im guessing the queen in sublvl 5 has the last card.
