Re: tape inlay instructions wanted.

Below is a list of all the original Beeb/Elk cassette tapes that I can find scattered around my roof space. All work on a Beeb. Please let me know if any scans of the covers/inlays are required. I have decided to give the tapes away but it would be collection only from Bournemouth. I'm in no rush an...

Re: tape inlay instructions wanted.

There are a number of tapes in the roof - mostly Electron Adventure Club titles. I'll get them down and post a list.

Re: tape inlay instructions wanted.

I have the original Magus cover which is pretty plain in comparison to the Robico inlay! I'll scan it so you can see.

Re: tape inlay instructions wanted.

I also have the BBC cassette for Village of Lost Souls by Magus - is the inlay for this of interest/missing?

Re: tape inlay instructions wanted.

Sorry, the Locks of Luck/What's Eeyore's tape has one adventure game on each side and both are clearly labelled BBC 32K so no Electron version that I can see but then again I don't have any Beeb hardware anymore so can't check.

Re: tape inlay instructions wanted.

I have this - do you still want it scanned? Found the tape when putting Christmas decorations back in the roof! I also have the inlay for What's Eeyore's in the same cassette case.

Sorry don't think I can PM yet unless a moderator can enable it for me.

Silverton House - Rainbow Adventures Book 2

Here is "Silverton House" -a type in adventure from the second book of Rainbow Adventures. Most of the conversion was done in BB4W and then into BeebEm for testing and tidying up - during which the usual gotchas such as IF..THEN..ELSE issues and "Too many FORs" errors were corrected ... I hope! The ...

Re: Lighthouse Adventure

Having enjoyed reading all of this I got to searching and found a pdf copy of the Second Book of Rainbow Adventures, but sadly not the third or fourth. Not sure how to attach the 2nd book pdf to this post though? I got the disk images for all 4 volumes but can't load some of the adventures into the ...

Re: Hi

Thanks for all the welcome messages. I've made a little more progress with Infinity Level 1 but still a long way to go. Will open a thread as suggested shortly - perhaps a team effort is needed to complete this puzzling game!

My name is Ron Bate and I recently joined this forum and am making my first post. I was an IT teacher and built an Atom for the school. The school went through the usual route of BBC Model A and B, Archimedes (mostly A4000s) and then PCs. I had a BBC Model B back in the day and bought many games for...
