Game Review

Deuteros: The Next Millennium is a sci-fi strategy/exploration game designed by Ian Bird, the sequel to Millennium: Return to Earth. The game was published by Activision for the Amiga and Atari ST in 1991. The goal is to restart from a devastated Earth and guide human civilization to the exploration of the solar system and beyond.

The game was well-received on the Amiga despite the difficulty being higher compared to the predecessor.

Just a note, but this game also came out on the Atari ST and I believe gameplay is identical, with small graphical differences. If you can't get the Amiga going, get the ST version. There are lots of archives online of cr-cked Atari ST games and Deuteros is one of them. There's lots of mature emulators too. Less fiddling than Amigas. Give those a try. Make a copy of the Deuteros game "disk" files, and format a brand new blank "disk" file to use for saving on. Then in-game I believe Deuteros likes you to "format" the disk in-game with it's own little process, so do that, then save and load as you wish. Great game!

If you want to know a game-spoiling cheat, btw, ask me. It enables you to get your space stations right back, after the Methanoids take over. But once you know it, it will spoil the game for you. However it'll also enable you to actually win the drokkin' thing, which takes DAYS or WEEKS otherwise! Damn it's difficult! Especially the damn Methanoids scuppering your mineral production on every planet they conquer, so you have to set it up again all the damn time! Incidentally you can savescum that, but I can't tell you when their next target is actually chosen.

    I've recently completed the game and experienced only a few minor game bugs. Saving state doesn't work, you have to use the in-game save, quit whdownload (F10) and then close fs-uae. Thanks gamenostalgia team!

    That's sad :( Have you started playing from scratch, or have you restarted from a saved game? If you started from scratch, it's possible the whdownload version is bugged, so the only thing you can try is playing the floppy version directly with FS-UAE/WinUAE. If a new WHDownload version is released, we will publish an update.

    Tried all of the below but didn't work. Is there anything else you can suggest?

  • Manu - 2022-09-23 - Reply

    The package uses the most updated whdownload version. One thing you can try is changing the file "Default.fs-uae" inside the "fsuae". Try with "amiga_model = A500" instead of "amiga_model = A1200" and remove the line "uae_chipset = aga". You can also try to reduce the fast memory (eg. "fast_memory = 2048"). Let us know if it works.

    I also have the same issue. Crashes every time the war is about to start? Is there a fix for this?

    Great game but has a software failure when the war with the Methanoids starts so cannot continue sadly.

    I loved that game growing up. Problem is: this version always crashes halfway through when the solar system is conquered. Any advice? I tried on both Windows and Mac versions.

    Game works and easy to install.

    Sounds nice. Reminds me of "Burntime"....
