Just re-posted Disc055 due to a correction in Laser Range at line 1280 where a space is required after IFE%<0 as published in a later Model B Computing tape.

Also: Disc083 is re-posted due to a correction in Gomoku at lines 450 and 460 to prevent the cursor going off the top or bottom of the screen as published in a later Model B Computing tape.

There was also a correction to Wendy Goes Walkies on Disc021 at line 71, but the version I have used already has this extra text which is S3%=0 to prevent an error when pressing X to move right on the first screen, again as published in a later issue.

Mick.

Disc 115 re-posted due to removing Cricket Averages (as it is a utility) and replacing it with Subhunt.

Hi Col,
Sorry, I didn't see the bit at the top ref Pharaoh's Tomb.

Had a busy weekend with the wife in hospital and I want to get as much stuff sorted and posted before I go away in March, so my posts are a bit short.
I will try in future to name some names when posting stuff.

Mick.

Disc 074 re-posted due to Col and the preservation team finding the instructions for Tower Of Alos on the B side of the tape. Also retransferred the original game and now you can save to disc.

Hi All!
Here, just in time for Easter (and if trapped by snow with nothing to do), is... Disc 121.

Disc121.zip
(113.37 KiB) Downloaded 18 times


As usual, another mixed bag of goodies for March 2018.

Firstly there are the usual Micro User/Electron User/Beebug/Acorn Computing games including Moziac Madness, A Day At The Races, Merrills and Maze Trap.
Chocky Egg from Home Computer Weekly is perfect for Easter.
Then there is Beeb Darts from Your Computer.
There is a massive game called Tanks from Design People which saves files to disc (so needs unprotecting).
Race Track, Stunt Driver and Boris The Spider are from Acorn Programs.
Robotank and Target Practice are by PCW.
Desperate Decorator is from Input Magazine (thanks to dv8).
3D Pentominoes is from The Acorn User.
Dragon Slayer and Pairs are from Fast Access.
Tea Bag Terror is a fairly new game (2015) from forgotten grove.
Lastly,
Phoenix is a brand new game from Tricky.
Enjoy!
Mick.

NOTE: The games on this disc have been checked for *KEY issues and are all OK.

Discs 122, 123 and 124 are currently being tested and should be out later in the year!
Discs 125 and 126 are in production.
This is mainly due to Lee obtaining (and sometimes typing in) magazine games, Retro Software writers creating some new games and finally, Col and team obtaining and preserving some MIA software.
Also thanks to Bill C and everyone who posted scans of inlay instructions to complement the games.
