Re: Music 500/5000 software/music

I have Studio 5000, Studio -2, and Studio 5000-4 Issue Discs, not sure which releases they are. I'll upload photos when I get a chance. It'd be great to have links to all those disks already archived! [-o<

Took me a while to figure out level 2, until I realised the start position is kind of hidden... Up to level 5 so far... 502

Re: High Score Challenge S10 - R4 - The Mine

There are 6 levels ... I originally wrote 5 by mistake. For my last score, I think I got to level 3, second time around. I'm following the same strategy as you, but I'll try to use boulders as much as I can. I just noticed a bug in the gane. There were only the 2 green monsters left on level 1, I dr...

Re: High Score Challenge S10 - R4 - The Mine

You may have, I just remember playing it somewhere along the line. I may have been testing out games for choice so don't despair. It's a great game that I suck at but it is fun. Yes, this isn't a bad one ... Only 5 6 levels though, and not sure if the difficulty increases when you go back to level ...

Re: High Score Challenge S10 - R4 - The Mine

Ooh, I hoped I'd chose something we haven't played in the competition before. I used to like this game BITD. It's a bit annoying how the dragon's flames pass through the earth though, watch out for that... 23,120.

The ABUG meetup this weekend was excellent. Thanks to jbnbeeb for organising everything so well, and to Jason and all at the Cambridge Centre for Computing History for hosting us. I brought along my Beeb with Music 5000, plus keyboard and MIDI interface - which hadn't been used in decades. It was a ...

Re: ABUG Cambridge Sept 7th-9th 2018 BOOKING THREAD

I bought a Music 500 recently, but haven't been able to get it fired up. Can anyone help me with that? I don't have an amplifier, so was going to use the telly, but that may be a silly idea. Quite possibly, yes. I'm at ABUG all weekend with a Music 5000 system, I have some powered speakers with me.

Re: High Score Challenge S10 - R3 - Arc Pinball

I just tried this game for the first time ... scored about 4000 but the score disappears too fast at the end so I couldn't take a photo. I'll have a go in BeebEm.
