Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R10 - Sikimish

I never played this before, I liked Winged Warlords BITD. I might have to play that again to see they compare... Really good game, this. Hope to improve a bit... 15,400

Re: Beebem teletext hold char (158) issue

I believe this issue is fixed in the latest code in GitHub, but we haven't released a new binary with this fix included, so you'll still see the issue if you're using BeebEm 4.14 or earlier.

I should really get on releasing the new version soon... :-

It would be great to get these changes into a future release of BeebEm. Do you have a link to the post? Then I'd just need to find some time to take another look at BeebEm...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R3 - Star Wars

So if I understand the 25000 bonus, you CAN get it if you don't shoot until you go through the vent? Would that be every level of the tunnel because I've done that or so I thought and still haven't gotten 25000 except if I get all my shields counted toward the score. I've only ever got 5000 for not...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R3 - Star Wars

Ah, ok! I found that you don't get 25000 for using the force. The most I've noticed I got is 5000, but it doesn't flash up in blue like the other scores when you get it. My tips: In general, it's important to preserve your shields as each hit you take deducts 5000 from the bonus when you destroy the...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R3 - Star Wars

These are not drawn correctly. Mostly the catwalks only go part way across and then the draw starts on another catwalk which is also only partly drawn across. This never happens when the game is freshly loaded so I believe something is overwriting the draw area somehow or there is simply a bug. I'v...

Re: High score challenge rules discussion.

For now it's not allowed but if anyone wants to use it start a discussion in the gaming forum and this may change. Is this relevant? Are there any auto fire joysticks usable on the beeb? Are there many games that...
