Yet More WormsDC Content Added
Posted in Worms by Squirminator2k at 15/06/12 12:31am CEST

We've added some more content for you

Firstly, three packs of game content. You may be vaguely aware of my attempts to take the Worms Armageddon terrain styles and downconvert them for use in WormsDC. Well, the first five terrains from my attempts to do so are now available as a downloadable zip file.

I also discovered, to my surprise and excitement, that I'm not the only person who's been working on this very thing - a fella by the alias of AceMan has been doing exactly the same thing, only with slightly better results. He's released two content packs so far including terrain styles and maps from Worms Armageddon, so that's nice. He also took the Magic Woods and Ice Cave terrains from Superfrog and converted them for use in WormsDC too.

All of the above content is available from the WormsDC downloads page.

Finally, a bit of an odd rarity: In 1996 an unofficial "expansion pack" of sorts for the original Worms was released, entitled "Oh Yes! More Worms". The CD contained a bunch of custom maps and alternate speechbanks. Unfortunately almost all of the content included on the disc is absolutely terrible, but it originates from a time before sharing data on the internet was the norm. For an Amiga users in 1996, collections like this were the only way to get access to other fan-made material. It's awful, and included here for completionists and enthusiasts. This ISO was sourced from the English Amiga Board, whom I love with all my heart, probably.

"Oh Yes! More Worms" can be downloaded from the Worms download page.

Oh, and I'm in the process of uploading the complete ISO for CUCD7, for the true completionists among you. It'll be up and on the website in about an hour or so. - Update - it's now available

New Worms: The Director's Cut Content Uploaded
Posted in Worms by Squirminator2k at 13/06/12 10:58pm CEST

In February '97, Amiga magazine CU Amiga included some additional content for Worms: The Director's Cut on their cover-mounted CD-ROM. Intended to serve as an expansion pack of sorts for the game, it included new custom levels and mountain sets, as well as the CD audio tracks and FMV sequences featured in the CD-ROM versions of the original Worms.

Unfortunately support for CUCD7 was never included with the finished game, and despite intending to include support in a patch that sadly never happened, so much of the content - save for the additional maps and mountain sets - ended up being useless.

Fortunately, we've been able to collect that data in one nifty little zip file for you. You can now download it from WormsDC's Downloads page.
