Re: Stunt Car Racer for BBC Master

Great work from Kieran and the guys again. Love working on your projects guys. Amazing what the 8bit Acorns can do when you flex their muscles. ;-)

Re: New adventure - Send in the Clones

I played the version on your link and got a bit further but then got the same error here....

Re: Doom?

Thanks Rich. The wireframe must be quicker to render and looks far cleaner than busy graphics. Looking at things like this on the Spectrum for instance its hard to tell whats going on. After all you want a proper FPS experience not a 2 frames per second confusion that you get on Spectrum. The maps a...

Re: New adventure - Send in the Clones

When I play the online version I get the Computer Briefing and I'm given an assignment but then it crashes at line 320 I think. Says there's a Disc read error.

Re: Doom?

Wouldn't it be easier and may be even a bit nicer from an FPS viewpoint to do a hidden Wireframe poly environment and then spend the graphic budget on the Sprites? For me the speed of gameplay is more important than trying to replicate a textured environment. Just and idea. :wink:

Thanks Streaks.
Hopefully I'll start work on this next year, after I finish a Spectrum game I'm working on - Foggy's Quest 2: The Lost Treasures of OMK. Once out of the way, I'll get back into the Acorn stuff. :D

The Maze of Terror

:D Hey fellow Acorns... This is just an idea I'm floating around. Won't been doing anything with it till next year. But thought I'd share my initial ideas. The Maze of Terror is hopefully the first in a little series of games based on BASIC type-in Programs. Taking the basic idea and code and expand...

Right done a quick search for Gunzip and it keeps mentioning Linux... is it just a Linux thing? I assume there's a Windows version somewhere and hopefully it works with Win 8.1 and above? [-o<

Re: TZXDuino with UEF support

I suspect it might the uef files themselves. I got them from Stairway to Hell. I just unzipped them to a folder and then copied them across to the SD Card. Other than that I dunno what might be wrong. :-k

Anyone used a DUINO on the Electron.

I'm looking at this DUINO, which apparently can run .euf files from an SD Card now. It basically replaces a Cassette Player. Now apart from coming with absolutely nothing, no leads, no instructions, not even a leaflet telling you what each port does or what leads to use, I cannot get it to read an S...
