Repton - Around the World in 40 Screens - 80 Track Version

Postby Stan Stimer » Tue Aug 22, 2017 12:51 pm

Hi

I have recently acquired at a boot sale - Repton - Around the World in 40 Screens - 80 Track Version floppy disk.

I have manager to created a ssd of all 80 tracks before that floppy disk stopped working and now has started to have bits coming off it.

Anyway it works in beebem up to the screen that says press 1 for game or 2 for editor.

What I wanted to know before I try to get it working, is the 80 track version any different to the regular 40 track version, does it have anything different on it like extra levels etc or is it exactly the same as the 40 track version.

Many Thanks

Stan Stimer

The 80T and 40T are identical, as far as I am aware. Certainly no extra levels. The disc itself, IIRC, is copy protected and is likely just going to be data saved directly to the disc (i.e. no filename). Without digging out my ATWIFS floppy, and rigging my Master up again, I can't be certain.

It does have protection , so just use UPURS & it gets round it no problem!

Just download a SSD of it, use UPURS or OmniFlop to put onto a good known blank disc, take sticker off corrupt copy, sorted
