If you mean HAMPSTEAD by Melbourne House it is available as a zipped BBC Disk image from this site. <p></p><i></i>

The disk image is available from this site. To play it on your PC you will also need an emulator, also available from this site. <br>
<br>
The download the game, click on "BBC Micro" in Software section of frame to the left of the screen. Now click on "disk images" in BBC Micro Software Archive section.<br>
<br>
Click on "index by filename" in Disk Image section (large file so may be a bit slow to load).<br>
<br>
Scroll down to "Hampstead.zip (Melbourne House)" and click on to download.<br>
<br>
You will now have to unzip it and put it into the "DiscIms" within the BBC emulator. It is a single-sided disk image and *EXEC !BOOT will run it. Instruction on how to use the various emulators are somewhere on this site, I think.<br>
<br>
I have returned to BeebEmv1.35 after having problems with v1.4 and v1.41. To find a good selection of BBC emulators click on "Emulators" in "Others" section in panel to the left of the screen. Click on BeebEmv1.35 (or any other) in BBC Micro Emulators (PC) section to download. I understand Dave has included all necessary ROMS so you won't have to go searching for them. Unzip, copy disk image(s) into folder and double click on BeebEm.exe file to load emulator. Click on File in top left hand corner, click on Load Disk 0 (window should open), now find your game file and click on file then OPEN to load. You can check files on disc by typing *CAT - if you see !BOOT it will probably work by typing *EXEC !BOOT <return>.<br>
<br>
Hope the above is correct - I'm typing it from memory.<br>

Sorry about typos - been a long day of wrapping presents and putting up decorations.<br>
<br>
Just thought you may have a bit of trouble finding the * key when in BBC mode - it is SHIFT plus @ (at least in the BeebEm emulator). <p></p><i></i>
