Re: B-Em: Time for a release?

The more emultators, the better of course. I'm however looking for a new release of BeebEm, which I think currently is the best Windows-based emulator for Windows.

Re: Superior software android

As good as it may be, what I don't like about Repoton 1 (and 3) is that is is only possible to move in a particular direction. It is not possible to move to a particular squarr, which makes it harder to, e.g., pick up diamonds. Is this something that could be improved?

Maybe this has come up before and if it has I apalogize. I noticed Superior software has come up with three games for Android, complete with their original logo: Repton 1 and 3 and Galaforve. Galaforce doen't look much like the Beeb's Galaforce, but Repton 1 and 3 are quite decent. Anyone who has mo...

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

Haha, Colossal Adventure, being a version of the original Adventure. is probably the only text adventure I still remember parts of. How about the other two adventure in the trilogy by Level 9, Adventure Quest and Dungeon Adventure? Are they good? And is Lords of Time considered better?

Thanks!

Re: Unfinished Text Adventures

I my BBC time I played mainly Acornsoft and Level 9 adventures (although I started with the classic Adventure) and a couple of other ones that got high ratings in magazine reviews. So I guess I'll continue in that direction. But if you know any high-quality adventures not fitting in those categories...

Re: Are there versions of BBC Basic with extensions (like procedures)

You guys are right. I think I programmed in BBC Basic from when I was 15 until I was about 19. I published in various magazines, but I haven't programmed in BBC Basic at all since then. I still remember how much I hated the GOSUB and this must have caused that I forgot BBC Basic had procedures, too....

Re: BBC computers -queations about possible sale

Thanks. Most BBC Micro's have been upgraded and cost about EUR 250 - EUR 400. The non-upgraded ones costs EUR 75 - EUR 100.

I was thinking of EUR 150 with the GoSDC. Does this sound reasonable? I can reduce the price a bit if it is picked up at my home.

Have you checked the "worldwide" option? Most BBC Micros only show up in the UK, so when I search with the eBay defaults (I'm in San Francisco) I don't get many (if any) results.
Still only one :-)

I have two BBC B computers, both in fully working condifion, and a monitor from the BBC-era ('80s or early '90's). Both BBC computers have been upgraded with GoSDC, which among others supplies a star-command with which you can load any BBC program without a tape drive or hard disk. I have installed ...

Latest version of BeebEm

I was wondering what the latest version of BeebEm is. I have version 4.14 (http://www.mkw.me.uk/beebem/index.html). But this is from 2012 and I have seen quite a few posts on BeebEm on this forum lately. So I wondered if there is a new version.

Thanks!

I didn't know Mame supported the BBC B. Is there anyone who can how good it is? For example, how does it compare to Beebem?

Re: A demo of what is looking like a new Frogger for the beeb

I downloaded it and I must say it's pretty impressive. Compared to the original Hopper it's a world of difference. I think it's great that people are making so much improved games 30 years after the original.

It looks pretty final to me. Are there things you want to improve further/

I vaguely recall a Kees from the Big Ben Club or a related association...
