1st version of "Bacci & the ducklings" + AnimEdi 16 bit
A downloadable game
BACCI and the ducklings v.2.4:
The video game "Bacci & the Ducklings" released a few years ago on this site (32 Bit version), has a predecessor, developed by me in 2003 with the intention of publishing it in the Talent-Zone section of The Game Machine magazine; at first I was in favor, but then I got the impression that they would keep my copyrights and pay me very little, so I put it aside and, when I had time, I converted it to 32 / 64 Bit for all operating systems from Windows 2000 to Windows 10; this is exactly what I propose to you on this page; it also includes the Config editor and AnimEdi (16 Bit) to create new levels and new graphics.
The limit is that it runs on Windows systems no higher than Windows XP.
AnimEdi (16 Bit) on INTEL / AMD machines with 80x86 processors and MCGA graphics card has a much higher frame / rate is smoother and flicker-free.
The extra features of the 32 Bit version are not available in this version
(music, video recording, saving high resolution graphics).
However, any vga, vesa, xga, cathode ray tube or led, liquid crystal graphics card are fine on this launched now from me now, the authentical Author , of this, on this great website ITCH.IO!
Perhaps is not indispensable I thinkin in the U.S.A., before someone removed it from Italy: Microsoft Windows XP, for industry advanced technologies that made in America or Deutsche, are better.
In this tiny video game, Bacci is a super-equipped hunter of the AlpsLiguri who is in the midst of flocks of birds of various kinds. The aim of the game is to take down all the birds, without running out of ammunition.When the number of live birds is greater the number of ammunition available to BACCI, he has to go home with the
pive in the bag. Attention, however: BACCI has rivals; Yesit deals with reckless and envious hunters, who, stealing the wings of Icarus, will try to steal the game from BACCI, only afterwards having reduced it to game.
BACCI has a jacket at his disposalbulletproof, a rifle, a machine gun and a radar.By hitting a macroscopic letter, it it will explode, taking both him to hell
birds than hunters who are close to it.
If the time available to you is exhausted, BACCI must catch up with greatI regret his wife, who is waiting for him furiously on the door, but in this case he lost one bet with his friends; if instead he is managed to clear the sky of allbirds, she'll have to cook for a year whole meat to the little bird, with great pleasure of her husband, who is very fond of it.

Preference programming (CONFIG.EXE):
As has been said, this game is small; to make it more interesting it wasadded the configuration program CONFIG.EXE.
It allows you to customize "BACCI & theducklings ", changing the weapons available, the radar, the sounds and all images / animations of the game, choosing them among a decent range of variants. Finally, with CONFIG.EXE, it is possible to create new episodes up to a maximum even number to 100 (this option is quite complex and it is recommended to see the documentation following before creating a new episode).
Since not all images / animations are suitable for a specific purpose, "BACCI & the
ducklings "may not work; in this case, exit the game and select the item "standard reset" from the menumain CONFIG.EXE (in this version every risky operation is undertaken after consulting the user, thatwill be able to confirm or cancel it; moreover i installed data are now more protected).
