Re: B-Em: Time for a release?

I'd be very up for a release of the binaries (both Win and Linux) . I've not found it straight forward to put a build together with the correct dependencies. I'm hoping that the fixes for Win 10 have been merged. I should say that I'm very appreciative re contributors' efforts. A big =D> thanks to e...

Re: Starting a Prince of Persia port...

Heh. I got a small mention in this month's Retro Gamer magazine. I wish they'd just ping me - I'm not that hard to get hold of!! Yep just flipped to the homebrew section and there it is (I always go to that section first!) Cool that you got a mention. Ages ago I got a mention with a WIP of biplane ...

Re: New release: Retro Software's WHITE LIGHT by Sarah Walker for the BBC B/B+/Master & Master Compact

I saw this game in action at the Leicester. It looks, sounds and plays incredibly well. Just wanted to add my +1 to all the praise here and say what an amazing job that Sarah has done in putting a great game together (and finishing it..always a challenge)! Props too for John Blythe and his fab graph...

Re: Starting a Prince of Persia port...

Kieran - just ran your latest cut of this. Very well done ! I know there's a lot more work to do but it's a real milestone to see that familiar sprite animation, with the control feeling just like it did when I played on PC back in the day! I was able to move left in to another room as well. D'you t...
