Re: Misc BBC/Electron Roms, for checking

No idea if it's Master only.

Here's the ROM dump.

Does it look any different from the existing dump?

Yup ... just one (32k) ROM to dump though (2 copies of the same thing) ... brought it with me today to the ABug meetup for dumping ... I think you'll be interested in the contents ... ;)

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - R9 - Bug Eyes

Mick assume you might try this now anyway but if the cursor off routine is the problem could be worth giving 23;8202;0;0;0; and also 23,1,0;0;0;0; a go instead?

Re: Newbie question regarding first machine

Just one comment ... as you're into Level 9 adventures you might want to consider a BBC Master rather than a BBC B, as this will open up the graphic options in the likes of Gnome Ranger, Ingrids Back etc

I have this, together with the second cassette (Toolkit for r q Forth) and all three manuals.

I'll have a bash at digitising both tapes and when I've got access to my scanner again I'll scan in the docs.

Sorry I've been meaning to reply to this - thanks for reporting the issue. Hopefully I'll have a chance to test out the game on a real Beeb (or Beebs) with the Watford DFS at the ABug meetup next weekend - will let you know how we fare.

Here's the disks I have managed to copy, a couple of them I couldn't get any sensible data off (bad sectors), but I think we have at least one copy of everything.

Re: Should joystick/paddle only games be download-only

What if the 'Play' buttons were to be removed from the Search page, but retained on the individual page for each game (together with an appropriate label or warning that it is not fully playable online).

At least that should prevent someone unknowingly running a non-playable game?!
