Re: Adventure Soft / Scott Adams recommendations please

I think "The Count" is generally regarded a being his best.
Maybe start with Pirate adventure or voodoo castle to get you in the zone, instead of starting with the best one?

Re: Easy way to get a BASIC program from a text file into an emulator

Is there a simple way to do this? It seems astonishingly difficult. I've tried CTRL-Ving it into BeebEm, B-em, and jsbeeb. No dice. Any ideas? TIA You almost had it with the CTRL-V. Copy the text but instead of CTRL-V into BeebEm, use the EDIT/PASTE option from the menu. This was mentioned above bu...

Hi Paul,
Thanks for that.
I am glad you did it as I always make a mess of HTML!
Yeah, you had linked to the wrong "3D Maze". It was a bit confusing as we had it as "Maze". I have altered it to "Maze (AKA 3D Maze)", and linked to the correct one now :D

This is one of the few games that we had to alter to make it compatible with the datacentre.
