Still creeping up 26,200, the following game I was around 25k on my first life and still didn't get past 26k!

It feels like I am making progress, but one mistake and it all falls apart. The 26,200 game I was on the 5th frog and jumped down instead of up into the last home!

Finally got some time to play this and it appears I'm terrible at it!

I've scored better than this but not taken a screen shot. Must try harder!

If you can then I'd recommend playing on real hardware.

I reckon with some peace and quiet (the kids are not happy I'm having more fun than them!) and a bit of luck I could score another 10 - 15 thousand without too much trouble.

Oh! I'd sat this round out precisely because I thought this version of Frogger wasn't available in any physical medium.

...Unless you mean that it's possible to burn it from emulator onto a 5.25" disk that would have worked on my real Beeb, but I don't know how to do that.

My non-emulator policy may want revising at some point in the future :-)

I copied it to my sd card and played it from there.

You can transfer pretty much any ssd to floppy using UPURS - have a look here: http://www.retro-kit.co.uk/UPURS/. If your pc has a serial port all you need to do is make up a cable to connect to the user port and get hold of the rom - actually I'm sure the beeb UPURS software can be loaded from floppy. If it doesn't have a serial port you need an additional usb to serial cable as well as the UPURS cable and software.

It wasn't in rules, but there is a ROM version in the thread which taking the monetary value of the prize into account, might have been allowed ;)

I got lost at sd card - this is all a bit beyond me, alas. Something for a kind soul to walk me through at a future Abug event, perhaps? Unlikely that'll be Leicester now (assuming the waiting list clears), unfortunately, following a work offer.
