Re: A demo of what is looking like a new Frogger for the beeb

Massive thanks for this! Works perfectly! :-D Now....... could you do Astro Blaster...

Re: A demo of what is looking like a new Frogger for the beeb

I'm afraid that there is no simple tweak, Frogger has 32 "screens" per "frame" and relies on some very tight timing. I'll have a play and see if I can make it work, the quick fix wasn't! Is there a useable mode on the TV for now? Thanks for getting back to me, Tricky. I suspected that this wouldn't...

Re: A demo of what is looking like a new Frogger for the beeb

Just moved my Beeb onto a flat screen TV in my study, and the vertical position is slightly different from my CRT screen. Sadly, the flat screen won't let me adjust the display downwards, so the top line or so of the screen is off the top. I can usually deal with this using *TV255, which is what the...

Fantastic work, Tricky!
Frogger was one of my all time favourites in the arcade back in the 80's.
Going to really enjoy playing this.

Re: Forth

Just out of curiosity, why are you interested in Forth?
I've still got my original Acorn Forth book, as I used to use it when working on OBP stuff when I worked at Sun.

Great stories, and very nice collection. Fancy shipping one of the RM's to NZ? :D :D :D :D

Ade
Have you felt how heavy they are? It would probably cost more to ship than it's worth :D

Re: Hello from Penzance

Hi! That's a nice collection you have, with two 380Z's as well. I've never even seen a 380Z in the flesh never mind used one but I do have an interest in locating and archiving some software that ran on them... The pictured software is called Acklam Graphpack I believe but there's also Statpack tha...

Re: MMFS Development and Support

Just wanted to say a massive thanks to everyone who's been involved in making the MMFS stuff work. I've managed to build an interface for a couple of quid, and it's working extremely well. For a Beeb gaming jukebox, it's absolutely perfect. Special thanks go to Daniel Jameson for pointing me at this...

Re: Hello from Penzance

Batteries were duly removed from the Master and the Archies before putting into storage. The RiscPC I acquired quite recently, and it's battery was already leaking quite badly (hence why I was given it). I've removed it, and cleaned things up, but not yet replaced the battery. I've got the battery f...

Hello from Penzance

Hi All, Been a long time fan of the BBC Micro. It is truly the reason why I choose computing as a career. My primary school (St. Hilary in Cornwall) was very lucky to be given a BBC Model A back in December 1981. From the very beginning, I was utterly fascinated by it. I can still see the provisiona...
