Re: Working ADF of David Braben's Lander.

It can be found on Applications Disc 2 for the A3000.

Where did you get your current ADF file from?

Javascript Mess

I'm sure Pernod is already aware of the JSMESS project, but perhaps it's also interesting to others on here. The main page is here , the code is on GitHub , there's a page on the Archive Team Wiki , and there are some online examples in the Internet Archive's Historical Software collection. The supp...

Re: Pegasus 400 BOM

I wasn't sure where to dump these pictures but this topic seems strangely appropriate. I managed to take a few minutes to open up an original cartridge and take a few photos. Here are two of them. I have a few more photos, but they're more artistic than useful. :)

Autocue Teleprompter

I found this page today while searching for images of Electrons. While it doesn't surprise me that there was a teleprompter based on Acorn hardware, I haven't seen one mentioned before. Is this item known to the collectors amongst us?

Re: Let's Play Citadel!

One thing I haven't seen (or noticed) in the videos people have made of Citadel is the effect you get when you walk off the left hand side of a thin two-colour platform then move back to the right to catch it again. One of these platforms can be found in the room to the right of the west exit to the...

Re: Another one bites the dust?

Maybe talk to archive.org about mirroring it, Chris. They have plenty of disk space. :)

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for running your site. It's an invaluable resource, and reading the articles and documents on it makes for a fascinating way to lose a few hours here and there. :D

Re: "Is that it?"

Hmm. Maybe I should dump my own to-do and done lists on here to help remind myself what needs to be looked at. Maybe it might inspire others to do some of the items for me. :lol: To Do: Build a cartridge to host the ROM version of Jungle Journey. Make more progress on Castle Raider - recent releases...
