YEah, it works a treat :) Disconnect the internal speaker and I've got the Audio Out going into the hi-fi.

Re: Stryker's Run for the Master

Is it possibe to take the wires out from the speaker socket and feed them to a hi-fi unit? Would the impedance be incompatible?

I seem to have got caught out again - DO you have to OIL DOOR each time you go through the Rusty Door?

I have found another interesting behaviour (still playing version 2t)- From the Enchanted Glade, if you say "MINH" to get to the Magic Room, you cannot move in any direction out of the Magic Room, although you can "MINH" to get back to the Enchanted Glade. However, if you move into the Magic Room no...

Hi, I was playing the game (version 2t) with the help of the walkthrough and the bit about "Trapping" the dragon in the Magic Room....how did anyone work that out? Is that something borrowed from Colossal Cave?

Re: Robico Banjax Cheat?

For the bears movement, I think there are two collisions mechanisms. The one that sometimes prevents you passing through monsters is because the game wont let you move in a direction where the screen just outside the extent of the sprite in that direction isn't the same colour as the background. I c...

Re: Robico Banjax Cheat?

Looking at how the game plays... the monsters are able to pass through each other unhindered but that is not the case with the Banjax character. I think that is the bit to target if I can make it so the monsters think Banjax is another monster that should work.

Re: Education Titles - Cambridge Micro Software - Gravity Pack

I took some screenshots for these titles and put them in their respective threads (Juggle, HideSeek, Word Hunt). On the whole I think the games must have been a little dissapointing.

Re: Education Titles - Cambridge Micro Software - Gravity Pack

Just to clarify.... I don't have any of those titles. They looked interesting so I was trying to find out if anyone knew if they still existed/archived.

Theres an annoying site that has pictures of software titles but no links to the actual programs :(

Re: Islandia instructions required

The program is in BASIC and Machine Code. Also you have to be careful what you input as you can break the program if you enter incorrect values as there is no input validation. I had another go just now but it gets a bit boring as you have to buy a lot of stuff at the beginning before you understand...
