Re: To Hell In A Hamper (2006) — an old new game

I need to investigate how to fix that... It's the same for all books on the site. It times out before the book completes downloading. There must be a simple fix for this because I've downloaded huge files through the browser on other sites.

Re: Missing Magazines from the 80s

There was also an ASP mag called Electronics Today that had a number of projects for the Elk in it. I had scanned that too but that's also dropped off the new version of the AEW site. I'll add that to everygamegoing.com as well.

Re: Missing Magazines from the 80s

I'll put that Games Computing that I scanned over 20 years ago onto www.everygamegoing.com. There'll be a new release on Saturday so after that you should be able to browse by magazine and find it again.

Re: To Hell In A Hamper (2003) — an old new game

Oooh, now you're asking. If I remember correctly, I had the solution and I wrote the whole thing first by following it through. Then I was able to get a list of all the messages in the game and the variables that were set for them to appear, so then I just put them in. Obviously there was *so* much ...

Re: To Hell In A Hamper (2003) — an old new game

Ideally I wouldn't have written a review of my own conversion but back in the days of EUG, I had to wear quite a few hats. I recall it took me about a week to write this. Worth it I think though. A really good adventure which BBC/Elk owners otherwise would never have seen.

The first batch of USBs were posted on Saturday. So if you have any feedback on them please post it here and I'll read it.

One of the Triple R educational titles that I finally picked up recently.

Long-time EUG readers may remember the Proaction The Farce article from EUG #48... this was one of the titles David Bradforth was selling 20 years ago. Never seen it for sale until a few months ago!

I've speeded it up now and stopped the magazines that were timing out from timing out. This feature really exposes just how many articles there are in the system - over 45,000. I need to make the multi-format mags show what system the review/preview/solution is for and add authors. If there's a tagl...

Well considering *all* that information is already on my site (everygamegoing.com), all that I need to do is to write a simple little search tool to get it for you (or anyone else). However, you don't really say what you "want". Do you just want a whole 'articles featured in magazine' page? If so, h...

Re: Lots Of Duplicate Stuff On Everygamegoing

I'd have to dig out the tape and see if it still works... At some point when I get a few minutes I'll have a look. The £2.50 is probably the base price. A lot of the early Beeb stuff doesn't have the "rarity" fields populated and that means the game just shows with the base price. You can see how it...
