Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

Yep! that's great. :D Is it possible that the admins could remove some of the drivel at the beginning of this thread where I was converting the discs by hand? In fact... If this thread just contained Mick's posts, I would be more than happy, as it would be much easier to find the discs, and that's w...

Re: How many versions of Frogger were there?

When setting up bbcmicro.co.uk, Paul used the metadata from my bbc games spreadsheet. I had a field for any game that reminded me of an arcade game. So, a good side effect is is you just type any arcade game into the search box, E.g. "Frogger" or "Defender" it will bring up any g...

Re: Adventure Soft / Scott Adams recommendations please

I think the Questprobe titles were generally considered quite weak. (Reviews should be easy to find?) I remember liking: Time Machine, Escape from Pulsar 7 (although it took me a while to get out of bed) and the 2 part Arrow of Death (I do remember a cruel "dig" puzzle though). The memory ...

Re: New version of Centipede for the BBC Micro (in progress)

Ha Ha! Mick Brown and me have been proofreading game instructions for the last year so things like that really stand out :lol: In future, if you want to post rough instructions, we could tidy them up to make sure they read OK. My spelling ain't too bad, but then again, my coding skills are shockingl...

Re: New version of Centipede for the BBC Micro (in progress)

Hi Tricky, I don't want to be a pain :wink: but in the first paragraph, the bit that reads "a mushroom will grow, these can also be shot..." would read better if it said "a mushroom will grow. These can also be shot...". In other words, change the comma to a full stop and make th...

Re: BBC Micro Compendium by Jeremy Rushton

Hi Dave,
I don't have the book, but I think the author was on here a while back unless I am mistaken?
p.s. it is Jeremy Ruston and not Rushton.

Re: Educational Archive?

Just a thought Paul.
This never occured to me until now, but how about having them on bbcmicro.uk, but "hidden"?
e.g. anything with a primary genre of "educational" is hidden by default, but shown on the educational page/site/whatever.
Does this even make any sense? :lol:

Re: Cleaning up game titles on Details pages

Hi Paul,
The ss.php is my absolute reference now, so you can add anything to it :D
If there is any work for me to do, just let me know.
I can usually get away with doing a little titivating spreadsheets at work :wink:
