Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

Hi all, I have had a read through the instructions and also inlay instructions I created to all the games on Discs 001 to 010 and found various spelling, grammar and other errors, some minor and some amazing for software houses to miss. These discs have now been re-posted in sections 1 and 2 of this...

Re: 3D Tank Zone controls

Fantastic Bill!

I never would have found this.
I have changed it to TAB and it now works.

Yes the cursor keys are done via INKEY in the basic.

thanks.

3D Tank Zone controls

Hi all,

Does anyone know how the keys are stored in 3D Tank Zone?

One of the controls is Shift Lock and for emulution purposes I really would like to change it to either CTRL or TAB, but I cannot find any code that I recognise in the listing.

regards,
Mick.

Disc119 re-posted due to including new RAM detector for Rat Race.
This one has now been tested by Lee and works on a real BBC. If no RAM then the game does not load.

Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

Disc 029 re-posted due to adding a machine code routine to Atom Smasher to detect BeebEm 4.14 and to try to fix the "screen shake" routine when you get caught that doesn't work correctly.
It works normally with B-em 2.2 and on a real BBC Micro.

Atom Smasher from Romik

I have just taken a look at Atom Smasher from Romik. I have found that the game should have a shaking screen when you get caught and lose a life. That is the case with the uef on STH with B-em. However, under BeebEm it makes a complete mess. The version on my Disc029 had been amended to cut out the ...

Re: New version of Frogger (was: A demo of what is looking like a new Frogger for the beeb)

Hi Tricky,

Ref the latest version of Frogger...

I noticed that only the ZX:/ keys work in the new version and not the cursor keys, WASD or joystick control.
The basic code looks the same, so have you broken something in the Mchine code?

Re: New version of Centipede for the BBC Micro (in progress)

Fantastic Tricky!

Just one thing, there seems to be several spelling errors in your instructions.

'around' , 'drops' and 'poisons' are the ones I think need changing.

again, great work.
