Re: Remarkable videos recently posted on Youtube

Exile C64 full playthrough It's interesting to see a full playthrough, finally! It looks like a pretty solid version of the original. There are some sharp edges removed and the difficulty curve is shallower at the start, but it still keeps some of the viciously difficult "puzzles" for som...

Re: Spellbinder on the Master Compact

Re: Acornsoft Elite

I thought re-releasing it was a very good idea because of the number of people who had bought the tape version of Elite on release who subsequently bought a disc drive and wanted the disc version. That was certainly the case with me - I re-bought several games (Repton 3, Magic Mushrooms) on 5.25&qu...

Re: Any Python programmers here willing to chat through stuff?

To start with, you can get the left and right digits by doing something like this:

Code: Select all

hourl, hourr = hour // 10, hour % 10
Similarly for the minutes and seconds.

Re: Memories of Bolos Past

Yes, it's the graphics, isn't it - or is it the original Everard(?) Island map? It's been a long time since I played Bolo on the Mac.

Wasn't Stuart Cheshire interviewed for the recent Acorn - A World in Pixels book? Was anything said about the original Bolo?
