Airwolf on Nintendo (NES) UK-USA

Official Box Art

Probably one of the worst games ever made (for airwolf) and it's only saving grace was the pick up and refuel screens that gave a break to the rest of the really bad mission game play.

Main Menu


License Screen

Compared to the Japan version by Kyugo, This U.S.A / UK release for Nintendo was an awful looking/sounding game. Developed by Beam Software under a license obtained by Acclaim this thing truly was rubbish. Beam Software founded in 1978 was based in Australia and later became Krome Studios.

This has to be one of the worst things created for Airwolf fans, let alone gamers.

You had to follow the layout on the lower part of your screen and attempt to destroy the Aeroplane Icon at the top of the map, which in fact represented the enemy air traffic tower, then you would have to pick up the man in the middle of the map. For those who where to busy fighting the enemy on the top half of the screen to realize what you where meant to be doing, they also provided a fuel / ammo pick up at the bottom of the map to top back up and get on track.

Most people played it with the Sound Off..



You would be shown a map before the mission starts outlining where you re-fuel, where you attack the tower and the X where you pick up the person. I gather someone read the bullet points and figured... We attack a tower (restar control) We rescue a P.O.W (st. john) While we take out a few unending planes along the way.. and there we have it.. an airwolf game..

Such a disaster when you consider "SkyWolf / Airwolf" released by Kyugo.

Some Rare Photos Found 2014


Some rare photos found in an old tin
(a few stuck where stuck together)
many are also damaged beyond repair :'(


Airwolf On Set 1984 (date assumption from other images in tin)

Next we have a really weird shot (looking to be from the PilotEp/Movie)
we are unsure if this was taken during actual filming, or if it was taken when testing the squibs.
It looks as though someone is sitting in the back and leaning forward. You can see his hairline, eyes and cheeks, but his nose looks weird.  I could be a double exposure (where they forgot to wined on the film fully before taking the next photo)  in the co pilot seat looks like a cross between dom (with his cap on) and some french foreign legion soldiers hat lol

By the wall (and other images we have) we would assume this is at the palace

Here is an enlargement of it.  We have tried to map out the face

Enlarged From The Image Above
I guess ide sit their looking shocked to, that must of been loud inside

Its such a shame these are in such poor condition

This looks like it was taken through a car windscreen, or messing with sunglasses
We assume part of the film was exposed to natural light before developing

We assume part of the film was exposed to natural light before developing

Check back sometime, we have more to un-stick  :'(

NOTE:
The images where taken by someone long since passed.
They where provided by a relative who isn't interested in airwolf.
and as such they wish to remain anonymous (so don't ask)
Just a case of the right person in the right place at the right time
So lets just be happy with that :)

A Wolf In The Cabin (Trivia-Hidden-Secret)


Wraith sent us in this shot and we felt we just had to share it
we have looked at the episode and it is a genuine frame from an episode
That shows a wolf inside the cabin.

Image From To Snare A Wolf  29mins into it
The enlargement above is from around 29 minuets into the episode, here is a full size reference shot.

Image From To Snare A Wolf  29mins into it
Image From To Snare A Wolf  29mins into it

This image was found on a Bing image search by Angela Duncan, and shows a bit more detail on the chandelier...


But see how this one (on the 3rd light across, has the horn between the 3rd and 4th?
On the original screen shot that horn looks more like an antler offshoot (like a thorn on a rose bush kinda thing) hard to tell.. a screen shot from the Blue Ray might help..

We will update this post soon with more images,  meanwhile feel free to post episode names and time references where you can find the same thing from another perspective...

he also said it might show up in the episode where hawke unwraps the gift and its a parachute..
And he noted the chandelier looks to be made of Antlers from a Stag or Moose.  someone also noted a rams horn...

Help Using Screen Savers By TheWraith517

.. READ THE INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE USING MEDIAFIRE OR SCR's

Mediafire runs using adverts, so the download button may NOT be obvious to you if your new to file sharing web sites.. this is why i have added the FILE SIZE  next to each screen saver, mediafire has many download buttons.. only ONE has that file size on it.. and that's the file you want... be careful..

Virus False Positives And Solutions...
Every RAR file is locked (not password-ed.. just locked against modification)
and the maximum winrar recovery record is also stored within the rar code
This locked rar means.. NO website or files on a website can modify the SCR file...

Your own computer (if infected, or has remaining remnants of a virus that was never fully removed in the past) can use parts of the SCR file packing compression code, and part of the RSS feed code is sometimes detected as "PUA.Packed.PECompact-1"  this is a false positive and is only the code used that makes the "SCR Dialog Displays" options pop up onto your screen and display the window, also for the Preview image in the windows desk top scr settings box.

Virus Total  initially said these screen savers where riddled and had 100's of names for it... Here
(But then when you try just scanning the SCR on its own outside the rar, rather than in the RAR)  
you'll find the rar compression also creates false positives, because the SCR on its own just gets this result Here.  Those two red flags are code results and are irrelevant to a user, But i guess could be used in conjunction with something else (if you have a firewall, you could open the properties box and click my Blog URL) then when yoru asked if the SCR wishes to go online or anything, say no and block
This way 3rd party stuff infecting your machine can not use any part of the scr for its own gain..

Jotties malware scanner gets ONE result....  See you can't even Click on the scr when its running, so i never added a URL to open or an RSS feed to load.. i could of.. i never... So even though virus total initially condemns the files, the results are to bogus and far fetched to be positive, and today.. jotties malware scanner beat the VT site hands down.  I have these on my own systems and my own systems attempt to download Nothing.... also other people have them to.  Ide like to thank Daniel Shaffer of the stargate community on facebook for approaching me with an issue that has helped me update this content your reading, so that it better helps explain the factors that may arise when using these scr files (or mediafire as a web host)
Remember these are home made, an SWF coded into an SCR, so their is no digital signature, no safe list and you can NOT add an SCR to an exception list because they can be infected by other means.. Again this is why i do not want them packaged with themes.. there's more to it than "your theme being clean"  it's how you pack it, how the site keeps it... i have picked the best method of release (been at this stuff since 2001 online) and 1999 offline..  Anyways here's the shot from Jotties page.. Also read the TECH Warnings below to avoid colour spots and dead pixels..

False Positive Due To Compression Used On The SCR
 

Screen Saver Important Technical Warnings:

A Screen Saver Is Supposed To Run Full Screen
Using screen savers that have none animated sections such as wide-screen boarders, or black lines down either side of your monitor/display is not healthy for it.

It's ok to look at and play about with, but a screen saver being active for hours at a time MUST be fully refreshing every pixel on your screen or it'll damage your screen over time, damage even more so than not using a screen saver... because 2 lines (top and bottom) or even (left and right) will end up showing colours differently than the rest of your screen.

Q) I have downloaded one and i have black boarders on the screen, what size do i need?
A) Only way to determine that is looking at your own computer or laptop, telling someone what your screen size is or model of your machine is irrelevant...  Windows sets your "Aspect Ratio" so everyone's can be different, even with 2 of the same machines...

On Windows XP Systems you can "Right Click" on your "Desk Top" and select "Properties" and this box will pop up....  Click on the "Settings Tab"


And you'll be presented with this box


There you can see your systems Screen Resolution AKA Aspect Ratio
that shows the size of the SCR you will need for that specific display, click "Cancel" to close it

On Windows Vista,Windows 7 and Windows 8 Systems you can "Right Click" on your "Desk Top" and select "Screen Resolution" and this box will pop up....  click "Cancel" to close it




QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:

Q) What about duel displays where one is bigger than the other?
A)  That shouldn't matter as windows normally uses the same size on duel displays

Q) When i run the screen saver the screen is a blue background with faded blue borders?
A) Place the scr file into either your "system32" folder, or directly on your "desk top"
     It will not run from the root drive, or from inside a folder on the desk top or any other folder for that matter, due to windows permissions over SCR files.


Q) What are these and How are they made?
A) Each SCR is a container for an SWF file, icon, and a dialog/settings box with a jpg banner (nothing more is included within the screen saver, no adds, no rss feeds or anything)
   the SWF was compiled with "Flash Image Builder" and the compiled into an scr using "Alexis Screen Saver Producer Corporate Edition"

Q) What is the scr and windows requirements?
A)  It is tested and works on my windows 7 desk top and in my windows 7 system32 folder
      It is also tested and working on the same "file locations" on Windows XP and Windows 8.1
       (it will also work on windows 98 & milenium) as long as they have flash player installed
  (this does not require a specific version of flash, any version will do)
