Re: ABUG Canada West Nov 16 2019

First i want to thank Paul for the gift of the magazine, coffee (must have coffee) and a great lunch. Now, I don't want anyone to think I'm a traitor or anything like that, I'm not. I've bought an Amiga 500 (hence the Amiga mag gift). The reason? I had an uncle that had one and he used to rave about...

It's always great to read about what you get up to, but I was disappointed not to find any details about the time machine you used during the event.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R10 - Battle Tank

Got to love that buttery smooth 3FPS action, wow :lol: I got a score of 9,120 at normal speed. It's like walking through treacle, though. I don't think I've got the patience to have another go. I also tried it in the emulator at 400% speed. It vastly improves the game, turning it into a pretty enjo...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R10 - Battle Tank

Does the game increase in difficulty as you go along? It seems not as far as I can tell, each time you destroy a tank another one simply appears in a random location. There's a technique to learn to avoid getting hit, but the thing I find frustrating is how the rotation isn't smooth so it's hard to...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R10 - Battle Tank

Neither of you are being too harsh on this one. if you don't have a joystick it's a real beggar to play. It was one of the very first games I had/played on the Beeb bitd. I didn't like it much then but I also didn't have many choices in my s/w library if you know what I mean so I played it more than...

@Venger - yeh, this game works ok with a joystick, not so much from keyboard.

A bit of a boost.....

Once in the water you can keep going indefinitely... I was a bit hesitant to post this score, as it feels like points farming. 119,388 spyhunter4.jpg Hey Chrisn, no, in this game it's not point farming as you're given little choice as to how to play the game. It was (mis-) designed this way and we ...

You know I'm going to have to go back and play this again now. Uggh! You realize it's only a matter of how much time you have, not how much skill. I could easily have upped this score by another 300k, 600k, a million if I wanted to....but I'm old and only have so much time left to live so........ w...

Thought I would do one more to test out a couple of things. Lives you gain work on both land and water. There's about 1-1/2 hours that I will never get back and I think I'm done at this point with this one. SH7.png You know I'm going to have to go back and play this again now. Uggh! You realize it'...

Let's hope there's more action in the game chosen for the next round.
Yes, I certainly hope so. Falling asleep at the computer because of a game is not the way to go. The game doesn't do anything to prevent you from playing a certain way and it should. Therein lies the problem.

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R9 - Spy Hunter

I'm really not feeling the love with this game as I find it extremely boring. That being said, I had a couple of goes earlier and got this score. It took me the best part of an hour though. There are quite a few games that I've played for longer periods in one go (Citadel, Palace of Magic, Exile, C...

Re: High Score Challenge S12 - R9 - Spy Hunter

I think this game is about choices. You drive and if you go on the correct path when there is a fork in the road/water, then you have more action with the ability to pick up more points otherwise it's just an exercise in driving, at least at first. I played this on my IBM luggable, but not long, did...

I'll try it on real hardware and see what happens. We may need to find a way to adjust for Beeb-Em if it works on real hardare. I'll report back in a couple minutes.

Has anybody been able to make the keys work in Beeb-Em? I'm finding that the accelerator key doesn't seem to work. The shift key works but I can't move my car in Beeb-Em. Have yet to try it on real hardware.
