Re: Most disappointing conversions from other systems

I really enjoyed gyroscope! After reading your comment I wondered if I was being harsh, but now I've seen it feature in the high score challenge I can see that it is as bad as my brother and I thought at the time. :lol: Let me know if you find the "superb synthesier music" the cover talks about! I ...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R3 - Gyroscope

Well I suggested this because I remember it being really tough to play back in the day, and me and my brother used to have good high score battles with it. Haven't played it for about 25 years though so not sure if it stands the test of time or not... First attempt was pretty much as I remember the ...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R2 - Proteans

Seems to be a bug where sometimes after killing an enemy missiles keep hitting the same spot until you move somewhere else, can't work out if yet if score keeps going up, need an extra pair of eyes to investigate further. Yeah I've noticed that, it's quite annoying! As far as I can see the score do...

Re: High Score Challenge S9 - R2 - Proteans

OK that's my high-score for the moment... This is quite a frustrating game! Incidentally, I've remapped the keys on BeebEm to Z and X, and / to fire. (Repeatedly pressing SHIFT was causing my PC to think I wanted to turn on sticky-keys...) As the proteans vaguely move from left to right, I vaguely g...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - Champion - White Light

If your last score was 14,575 then it's up to date. Try refreshing the page. If you just go back and forth between pages then it won't show the updated image. You have to refresh the page too. If that's not your last score then I don't have another higher score for you. Perhaps you could upload it ...

You can link to your own files once they're uploaded, I've had the same issue before but not sure what was causing it... seems ok for me to post jpg or png as inline at the moment though... maybe it's a browser issue? What you can try is attaching as normal, then preview, then copy the attachment l...

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - Champion - White Light

Never mind, it works from beebEm, maybe because I don't have to crop the image, for some reason when it's when I play using bbcmicro.co.uk through the firefox, and I do crop the image, it doesn't work.

Re: High Score Challenge S8 - Champion - White Light

I just Alt+PrtScr, paste into fireworks, crop, then export as jpg. It's what I've always done here.

png does the same

Re: Most disappointing conversions from other systems

Worst conversion I know of was Gyroscope by Melbourne House. My younger brother bought it, played it, took it back to Boots because it was rubbish and Boots let him have his money back and keep the tape - they didn't want it! They'd already had several returned apparently. I really enjoyed gyroscop...
