Egghead In Space and Weenies - BBC

Postby mfc » Sat Aug 08, 2015 11:35 pm

Is it ok to request binaries for these? I have the Electron versions, but can't find the BBC ones. Not sure if they are available somewhere.

Considering Cronosoft no longer sells these since quite a while now, I guess it would be ok to ask for them?

Good question. I think the correct answer would be to try and get in touch with the author, Chris Dewhurst, and ask him whether they are still for sale anywhere - for example Cronosoft might sell you a download if they still own the publishing rights, or Chris might.

I think Chris is still around on the BBC scene somewhere...

As far as I can tell, Egghead In Space is a duel BBC/Electron game which switches to whichever computer you play it on.
I did post it some time back on the submissions section on my Disc 103and was also available to download over at Acorn Electron World.

Weenies however, may be still under copyright. It was released for the BBC and is on one of my later discs which I have been asked not to post on here yet.

regards,
Mick.

Are you sure about that? Because I have the Electron version of Egghead and it doesn't run on BeebEm even though it works fine on Elkulator.

Same thing for Weenies it works fine on Elkulator, but I always thought both had separate releases for BBC and Elk.

Michael, I tried the version on your disc and that one does work, interesting!
Any chance you could do a standalone version of the game only? I'm not sure how to do this through the emulator.

Thanks
