This is great! =D> A while ago I started annotating some of the source code. Will dig out my notes and see if I can contribute anything.

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - RChamp - Boxer

Never played this one before. A strange boxing game where you can't box your opponent... It's a cute game though. Best so far: 25,560

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R0 - Kix

Not quite got the hang of this yet. But it's good to play this after Frenzy, interesting to see how they compare.

A small improvement... 7840

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R6 - Beach Head

Completed the game, so now trying to optimise the score. You need to get at least 3 tanks through to the final level to defeat it, but you can use any remaining ones to improve your score... feel free to leave this score out of the HSC if this is not strictly allowed. 129,600

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R6 - Beach Head

Uh, I didn't expect this... I just completed the game (on skill level 1). I assumed it would keep going after you get to the big gun at the end, but no, the game just ends. Anyway, here's a score to aim at: 115,000

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R5 - Perplexity

I'm now up to level 3, but not figured out how to do it yet. I cleared level 1 at the first attempt, but needed to restart level 2 a couple of times. Maybe there's a way to adjust the HSC points calculation so that reaching higher levels is given more weight? :-k My best so far: 9589 perplexity2.jpg

Re: BeebEm video capture problem with playback

I'm currently maintaining BeebEm. The latest version is v4.15 beta 1, available here, which may fix the video capture issue. Please give it a try and let us know if it works for you.

Re: Electron to BBC Conversions

That's odd - I thought B-Em would be closer to a BBC than BeebEm is. Sadly cannot ditch the Emulator detector as it only detects if BeebEm is there (or not) and not B-em. One thing I have done is alter the code that slows the game down to make it JSR its original routine &18A8 first then do the slo...
