More shots[edit]

Can anyone get a screen grab of castle siege or maiden (seduction scene) from the Amiga version of the game? Those would really show-off the graphics that the article gushes over. :-) Frecklefoot | Talk 17:45, Feb 4, 2005 (UTC)

I can get screen caps of all the scenes on the Atari ST version. The Amiga is too hard to play, but I might be able to get the siege screen. --Pelladon 03:23, 11 September 2005 (UTC)
Bummer, looks like they deleted the pics. --Pelladon 00:19, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

More versions?[edit]

Since I can never bear to throw away old computer magazines and stuff, I have a Swedish Macintosh products catalog from 1988 in my bookcase. It lists Defender of the Crown as one of the available games. Can anyone confirm that this version really exists?

Never mind, I see now that it was mentioned in the article, even though it was not in the "Platforms" list.

Misc[edit]

The Atari ST version had more features and options than the Amiga. But the Amiga had better graphics and more screens. This was because the Amiga version came in 800K floppies and the Atari ST came in 400K floppies. Personally I found the ST version far more playable and easier than the Amiga version. --Pelladon 00:28, 7 September 2005 (UTC)

They weren't actually able to finish the Amiga version. They had to rush it market unfinished in order to get some cashflow. From what I've heard, they planned to have all the features that the other versions had, but couldn't because of financial constraints. Frecklefoot | Talk 17:50, September 8, 2005 (UTC)
Amiga version too hard? Many reviews complained that the whole game was too easy. And that what it sure was. There was not much to see. Since I was a little kid it took me some time to understand what the game was about but as soon as I got it, it took no more than hour or two to finnish the whole thing. --128.214.205.5 13:14, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
It takes an hour??? It only takes ten minutes or so for the Atari ST. Even faster if you can joust well. :D --Pelladon 00:09, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Defender of the Crown-PC-EGA-01.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Defender of the Crown-PC-EGA-01.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Not a DOS game[edit]

The PC version of Defender of the Crown did not in fact run from (MS or PC) DOS, but booted to its own operating system! John Darrow (talk) 21:52, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Metro3D, Inc.[edit]

Metro3D, Inc. lists this game as having been one of their development projects. Where does this company fit in the game's history? SharkD (talk) 21:08, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Excessive non-free images[edit]

The only image I see that would be considered excessive (based on WP:NFCC) would be File:ST_Defender_of_the_Crown_strategy.png, which is not well integrated into the text and thus would not be detrimental to readers' understanding of the article if removed. Before I remove the image, I would like to request any input regarding the notice of excessive non-free images, particularly if removing this will assuage said complaint. --Odie5533 (talk) 01:45, 18 June 2009 (UTC)


How to joust in Atari ST version?[edit]

I keep losing. I try to hit the middle of the shield but nothing happens. I try to hit him in the face and nothing happens. By the way, I have to say, I can upload some images of the joust also. I will try soon. Perhaps the article should be added the way to play the joust. As it is so difficult. Knowledge should be shared!k —Preceding unsigned comment added by 60.183.4.98 (talk) 03:35, 8 September 2010 (UTC)
