Taipei Instructions required

Hi,
Does anyone have a scan (if they were printed) of the instructions for Taipei from The Micro user back in 1991.
I believe it was in Vol 9 issue 8 and it is missing in action.

I have the game, but just need some info on how to play it properly.

regards,
Mick.

Hi All,
Just re-posted D056 in Section 4 and D104 in section 6.
This is due to Lee finding the correct listings for Light Cycle and Caving, both by Practical Computing.

Hi All,
Just re-posted D023 in Section 3 after adding the correct version of Chuckie Egg 2 by The Caretaker. This replaces the old Chuckie Egg 2 hack and the new correct version lets you alter lives and sheets and lets you load any saved sheets from tape as per original hack.

Re: Alternative titles discs (remastered)

Just re-posted ALTD011 due to a slight change to the Chuckie Egg (Extra Colours Hack) where I have removed the (C) A&F 2005 and replaced it with "Upgrade by Rich Talbot-Watkins 2005. This is to avoid confusion and add a bit of clarity to what it is and when it was hacked.

Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

Hi All,
I never had the RS loaders as the copies I had were taken off my BBC from Retroclinic.
Now that they have been posted, I have been able to add them to Disc105.

So, just re-posted Disc 105 again in section 8 with the full versions.
Thanks again to everyone who has made this possible.

Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

The versions on D105 are as per original as far as I can remember.
No additional info was added as they had to be removed from the disc originally.
