Re: Manic Miner Level Select/Skip

What with this weekend being rainy I thought I'd have a crack at making the choice of level a bit friendlier, attached an image which will let you select the starting level before the game loads :)

BeebEm debugger

Hi Is it possible after breaking execution with the beebem debugger to see the current registers and PC? I've looked and can't find out where the PC is? Using the Mac BeebEm if it makes any difference. Edit Right I've got that working, I think it was cos I was breaking in the OS code, if I run a nor...

For no particular reason I have made a list of my top 5 arcade games I'd like to see on the BBC Micro. AFAIK they all made it to at least one 8 bit machine in some form or another. Food for thought :D

Re: May 12th-14th 2017 Cambridge ABUG (FULL) & Acorn World event at CCfCH

Yes had a great time, lots of new faces I didn't recognise, and some veterans I've not met before too!

Many thanks to Jason for the organisation, and also to the centre itself which I think was a pretty good venue, the fella running it there I found knowledgeable and friendly.

Cheers

Just got round to giving this a go, very nice! If I had one criticism, I couldn't always figure out what direction my keypress would take the cursor, and became confused often! That said however I only had 2 goes so that may become obvious after another few turns. Otherwise lovely job both of you =D>

what ever happened to that Beeb adventure creation tool you were developing..? I had a particular idea in mind and wanted a (modern) tool to enable me to write it for the BBC. Unfortunately it never got much past printing out the locations, which is a shame but I don't have the time or energy these...
