The Micro User "Christmas Crackers".

Postby leenew » Mon Nov 20, 2017 5:26 pm

Hi,
I have been trawling the Micro User magazines, and I beileve I have collated every game they (And Acorn Computing) released.
I have sent all the missing ones to Michael Brown to use on his upcoming discs.
However...
One tape/disc eludes me. "Christmas Crackers".
Now, before you say "It's in the STH archive on Stairway to Hell".... there are 2 versions of this tape/disc.
The one that is in the archive has 21 programs on it.
The one that is missing has 6 programs, and was advertised on page 37 of the December 1987 issue.

Pull The Cracker
Jet Set Santa
Snow Plough
Snap
Name The Carol
Candle Light

Can anyone point me to this one please? or does anyone have a copy?

Thank you,

Lee.

Here's the ad in question:

    The Micro User 058 Vol 5 No 10 Dec 87_Page_1_Image_0001.jpg
    Ad for Christmas Crackers from Micro User, December 1987

Hope someone finds a copy of the tape/disc.

Oh my - I think I have the Elk versions of some of those somewhere, they were T2P3'd so might need some un-wrangling....

T2UEF should do the job - or just send them my way. :)

Yep :D
I now declare my Micro User trawl complete 8)
All Micro User games on bbcmicro.co.uk have now been corrected with proper attribution for author and publication date.

p.s. I have already collated all Electron User games, but some of them may need work before uploading, so I am on with Acorn User games now...
