Re: BeebSCUMM

Sorry! Sorry! Sorry!
It's just the enthusiasm taking over as usual :oops:
This is a project I am honestly really looking forward to playing.
Err... did I say sorry? If not.. then sorry 8-[

PS Did you try the Dunjuz RAM game which also loads into banks 4 and 5 (due to the same issue with BeebEm)?
I just tried Dunjunz now from the disc image in your other thread. It loads on a real BBC too. I played a few screens but nothing more.
Hi,
What setup do you have it running on?

Re: Search for the Lost Orb

Hi Kevin,
That's a new one on me.
It isn't listed on the adventure game solutions archive either.
What machine is it running on?
Could you upload the files?
Thanks,

Re: Missing BBC Games HELP REQUIRED!

Cheers Dave, I will grab them 8) I was just looking through the list at "Software for all". It lists "Alien Planet" as missing... Seeing as we have "Planet of the Aliens", I think I will cross this off the list. Probably one of those occasions where they shortened the title to fit on a small advert....

Yep! that's great. :D Is it possible that the admins could remove some of the drivel at the beginning of this thread where I was converting the discs by hand? In fact... If this thread just contained Mick's posts, I would be more than happy, as it would be much easier to find the discs, and that's w...

Re: How many versions of Frogger were there?

When setting up bbcmicro.co.uk, Paul used the metadata from my bbc games spreadsheet. I had a field for any game that reminded me of an arcade game. So, a good side effect is is you just type any arcade game into the search box, E.g. "Frogger" or "Defender" it will bring up any game that I deemed to...

Re: Adventure Soft / Scott Adams recommendations please

I think the Questprobe titles were generally considered quite weak. (Reviews should be easy to find?) I remember liking: Time Machine, Escape from Pulsar 7 (although it took me a while to get out of bed) and the 2 part Arrow of Death (I do remember a cruel "dig" puzzle though). The memory plays tric...

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

Hi Tricky, I don't want to be a pain :wink: but in the first paragraph, the bit that reads "a mushroom will grow, these can also be shot..." would read better if it said "a mushroom will grow. These can also be shot...". In other words, change the comma to a full stop and make the small 't' a capita...

Re: BBC Micro Compendium by Jeremy Rushton

Hi Dave,
I don't have the book, but I think the author was on here a while back unless I am mistaken?
p.s. it is Jeremy Ruston and not Rushton.

Re: Educational Archive?

Just a thought Paul.
This never occured to me until now, but how about having them on bbcmicro.uk, but "hidden"?
e.g. anything with a primary genre of "educational" is hidden by default, but shown on the educational page/site/whatever.
Does this even make any sense? :lol:
