Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

Hi All,
Just re-posted D012 in Section 2.
This is due to a error with Screwball from MRM where it did not work properly under b-em, but was OK with BeebEm. New OLD/RUN routine added and now seems OK.
Thanks to forum members for spotting this!

Mick.

Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

Hi All, Just re-posted D065 in Section 5. This is just a minor fix to Brainstorm. A *FX200,3 has now been added to its BRAINST loader as not having one seemed to stop the main game from loading correctly if you copied and played the game separately from the !BOOT menu. Thanks to Chet for spotting th...

Re: E-Type on disc

Just to let you know that I had an original disc copy of EType back in the day on my old BBC B and it loaded fine and played OK. However, it may be some sort of emulation problem causing this game not to work correctly. If anyone loads the copy on My Disc050 you should find that it loads correctly a...

Re: Games with problems

Hi All,

The main reason why I did not add *TAPE originally is because there is a machine code LDA#&8C at &4A26 in HELL1.
So would simply...
160 *LOAD HELL1
170 call&4A72
...do the job?
