Re: Repton 2 screen B fixed

There are two screenshots detailing the changes in the zip file.

Whether it's a "fix' or a change based on personal preference about the original author's level design is open to interpretation :roll:

Re: Trivial Pursuit Young Players Edition

seems I had the 40T disc version (going by manual), hence the two discs, below for completeness. AFAIK the game was supplied on 2 disks... The first having drive 0 being 40 track and containing the game code. Once this is loaded, based on an earlier check, DRIVE 2 is issued to access DAT1-8 on the ...

Using viewtopic.php?f=2&t=9061&p=115830#p115830 as a starting off point as potentially what the value of F07 and F0F were, I've managed to get this working... although the instructions on line 260 of START seem to be somewhat garbled!

Re: The Cambridge ABug software hacking/archiving thread

The original disk (that I've got, at least) loads the main program / title screen using OSWORD &7F shenanigans and also has an unformatted track to decide 40 or 80 track mode, when then switches to drive 2 for the DAT files.

Re: The Cambridge ABug software hacking/archiving thread

Should there be any disks with mismatched physical / logical tracks, you could try this *RUN FSD to load, then it transfers data just the same as UPURS. Needs an 8271 DFS to misread sector sizes. Should be a little faster than the previous version, which was terribly slow on Acorn DFS 0.9, since it ...

Re: Games that don't work in jsbeeb

Since the Master version of Dunjunz was Side B of the original disk, I decided to try Side A on jsbeeb with "BBC B" set as the model and it works fine.
I don't think that the version using sideways RAM was official, and as such I'm not entirely sure it's worth trying to get it working.
