Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R5 - Missile Base

Hi Folks,

I have a very busy day today so won't post the final results until later in the day, perhaps evening (later here, very early morning in the UK).

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R5 - Missile Base

I haven't tried it, but is analogue mouse stick cheating for this game? Hey Tricky, what does that 'mousestick' look like? Would it play similarly to a joystick? I've tried it and it does help play the game but there are quirks, the coords don't map correctly so the horizontal position is doubled c...

The instructions says you can use a joystick. A mouse isn't a joystick so I would say yup....can't use the mouse.

This is obviously a nostalgic game for a lot of people and M_Ron [/color] totally munched everyone in Snapper. This was a fairly good port of PacMan and it showed. There w...

I'm posting this, not because I have a new high score, but because it shows my general mental attitude during this final set of playing the game.

Re: High Score Challenge S11 - R4 - Snapper

Looks like I'm done for this round as my 'Z' key has given up the ghost. No amount of bashing gets a Z on the screen so it looks like I'm going to have to take it apart and replace the keyswitch . That unfortunately means I'll have to tidy the garage in order to find my soldering iron. The emulator...

Re: Strange error when running Snapper on my BBC Master

Yeh, I figured it had something to do with a non-existant 6522 but the interesting thing here is that it worked fine before. This is version 2 of Snapper. Also, nothing in the User Port so don't quite get what's happening. Just weird is all......not me, the system. Can you post the .ssd for the ver...

Re: Strange error when running Snapper on my BBC Master

Does anyone have any idea why this would come up since the highest number IC in a Master is IC51 I believe. IC69 is the User 6522 in the model B, which Snapper requires. For some reason it thinks this is faulty on your Master. Do you have something plugged into the user port? Dave Hi Dave, Yeh, I f...

Strange error when running Snapper on my BBC Master - Solved

Hi Folks, I got the following error (in picture) when running version 2 of Snapper on my BBC Master. It should be known that I was running this version on my Master yesterday but unplugged my GBS-8200 to take to Paul's for our meet-up. Other than that, nothing has changed as far as I know. This is t...

When I got to Paul's the first thing we did was inspect my new vehicle. Seeing as it is more computer than car, it seemed appropriate. Mazda CX-5 GT.png We then packed my kit inside and proceeded to set up. Then, in keeping with the tradition of exchanging Acorn gifts, we each found something for ea...

Thanks. I haven’t stopped playing Snapper, Mr E and Chuckie Egg since the 80s so if we could include R and Chuckie too that would be grand ;)
