Re: Games that were better on the Electron than on the Beeb?

Is anyone up to the challenge of getting Elk Repton working on the beeb? It seems to play OK but the screen is in the wrong position. There are 3 versions at Stairway to Hell: https://www.stairwaytohell.com/filesearch.php?title=repton&beebdisk=1&beebtape=1&electape=1&Search=Search 2 seem to work and...

Re: Missing BBC Games HELP REQUIRED!

Removed "Super Simon" from IJK
This is almost certainly Beeb-Beep (sometimes Beep-Beeb :roll: ) which was advertised as "A Super Simon game".....

Micronet 800

Does anyone have any memories of Micronet 800? On bbcmicro.co.uk we have 4 games published on Micronet 800: Wiggles, Exterminator and Maniac (All by Gary Partis), and an adventure game called Cloudburst. http://bbcmicro.co.uk/index.php?rt_R=&rt_B=&rt_M=&rt_P=&rt_U=&rt_W=&rt_L=&search=micronet+800&so...

Re: New Release: Retro Software's WHITE LIGHT by Sarah Walker

Well this is embarrassing :oops:
The SSD on bbcmicro.co.uk had the HI file locked.
This stopped the game from re starting.
I can now confirm it works from my Master and datacentre beeb from floppy disc.
Move along.... nothing to see here... :- :-

Re: New Release: Retro Software's WHITE LIGHT by Sarah Walker

I don't understand!
I played it from an unprotected floppy with no other ROMS but BASIC and the built in DFS.
What have I done wrong?

Re: New Release: Retro Software's WHITE LIGHT by Sarah Walker

Correct. It saves scores to disc.
The disc is definitely write enabled as I have just transferred the game to this disc :)

Can anyone else confirm this behaviour?

I have just played White Light on my Master from floppy disc.
All ROMS were *UNPLUGGED except for DFS 0.79 and BASIC.

According to Sarah, these are known issues, hence the disclaimer on the White Light page on Retro Software : Note: no forms of storage other than floppy drives are supported, though it has been tested on a BBC B/Master running from USB stick with Datacentre and also on a BBC Master with CF-Flash AD...

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.
