Re: The Cambridge ABug software hacking/archiving thread

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.

Re: Creating game maps

My method is usually just playing through the game, taking screenshots, cropping them, decreasing colour then removing the player character. Then I have a simple HTML file to display them in rows and columns.
