Re: Poor manufacturing

It's the lightning cables that cost my household budget dear. They don't seem to stand up to any wear or tear, whereas the old style did, as do all variants of mini/micro usb/c for other devices.

Re: Electron versions of archived software

Okay, so next question: does anyone want any/all of these cassettes? Free for postage, obviously. Otherwise they'll only get stored in a cardboard box in the loft as I realistically won't have the time to do anything with them in the foreseeable.

Escape!

Published as a type-in game in Micro Adventurer magazine issue 7, 1984. "The program will work on the Vic 20 with expansion, on the Spectrum 48K, the Commodore 64, the Dragon, the BBC and most other computers that use Basic".

Well Electron actually, but it'd be the same cable - right?

Re: Electron versions of archived software

No need to apologise. :) Maybe it is an Electron version, or someone modified the BBC version to run! I didn't want to put you off investigating it, but at the same time didn't want you to waste your time if it turns out just to be a bootleg BBC version. :) It didn't load in fully, but I can see th...

It would be nice to think that an Electron version of this exists, but perhaps it's just the BBC Micro version. I think it runs, but incredibly slowly.
Sorry :(

Re: Electron versions of archived software

There are a few more, plus several untitled. I'm having a hard time with the cassette deck heads on the unknowns. I successfully made a couple of good practice UEFs but now the tapes are getting chewed before the headers pass through. Hence me offering them out to the more knowledgeable. I do feel t...
