Re: High Score Challenge S13 - R9 - Yie Ar Kung Fu 2

Continuing the HSC tradition of finding bugs in games ... I found you don't need to collect any tea leaves, you can press T at any time to reset to max energy. Aargh!!! There I was saving up my tea leaves until I really needed them. The above bug ruins the game unless you choose to not play the tea...

Re: Today I received.....

Hopefully not teaching Granny to suck eggs here -- but I hope you've taken an image of the hard drives! As for the CMOS problem - what's the matter with it, the usual battery leakage issues? (... on that note perhaps we should take this discussion to 32bit Hardware!) Thanks for the reminder. All ba...

Re: Today I received.....

Recently I picked up this very nice Risc PC 600 with a large bundle of educational software and documentation. It was originally used in a primary school and has file server software installed. Nice find, Rod! I remember playing about with/on Crystal Rainforest, Around The World In 80 Days, SPEX an...

I'm not necessarily going to order two at once. Hi tone76, I ordered two from Core Electronics in Australia by getting one of the special offer plus one from the bulk option as below. Their email notification was fantastic to tell me when they came into stock. Hope I ordered the right header. I hav...

Re: De Tijdmachine / The Time Machine
