Re: Alternative titles discs (remastered)

Just re-posted ALTD011 again due to correcting the hackers name who created Evil Invaders. Changed from D G Bearsmore to D G Beardsmore in the loader.
Thanks to the author informing Lee of the error.

Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

Hi All,
Just re-posted Disc 133 in Section 17.
This is due to Lee discovering that Breakthrough was almost identical to Break-Up on D126.
Breakthrough has now been moved to AltD012 and has been replaced on this disc with Asteroid Belt from Practical Computing.

regards,
Mick.

Re: Disc Doctor interference

Discs 108 and 110 have now been reposted and that concludes this fix for my discs.

If any minor errors are found in future then a message will be added to that disc's post.
One has just been added to D027 to warn of possible interference with Network

Re: Disc Doctor interference

Thanks for that Bill. BTW I have found another one. Chicane has some code that loads the game at &100. It worked fine for me as it actually stored &0D at &130 which is why I missed it, It was only when I loaded Disc Doctor at slot 0 that it crashed as it stored &0 at &130. I have amended the code to...

Re: 30th Anniversary BBC and Electron Collection

Hi All,
Just re-posted Disc122 in Section 14.
This is due to changing the Disc Doctor detection routine for White Light.
The old version I used checked location &130, but this was not universal. Bill Carr's ROM detection is now used and Lee has tested it on a real BBC with Datacentre.

Re: Disc Doctor interference

Hi Bill, IIRC the reason why I did not to use the BFMOF disc version was because BITD the tape version was protected but a disc hack of it was given to me and that is what was used. When I came to remaster the games a few years back, I found a disc version on STH but it had extra files that loaded a...

Re: Disc Doctor interference

Sorry about the vagueness. DISC DOCTOR 1.09 is what I used. Also, It was my code that Cyborg Warriors did not detect, that was the checking &130 for &0D or anything other than 0 that I removed. Not the ROMOFF code that works for Atic Atac. The issue I have is this. All my games worked fine on my old...

The original tape version does not have a problem with the...

Re: Disc Doctor interference

Added Bill's code to Atic Atac and sent it to Lee.
Hopefully it will work with a Datacentre,

If so, then I may be able to add the code to a couple of other games.

thanks again.
