Hi all. I remember BITD an Elite game editor appeared in one of the BBC magazines. IIRC it was a type-in listing that allowed you to edit/create a save file with various upgrades e.g docking computers, bigger cargo bay etc. Is there something similar for Electron Elite ?
Thank u topcat96. Now, here is another small problem. I know that Elite was only released on TAPE for the Elk. But, I've begun playing Electron Elite and saving my commander to tape all the time is beoming a bit of a chore. Is it possible to modify the game code to direct the SAVEing of your progress to DISC rather than TAPE ? (I remember the Beeb version had a nifty disc menu within the game that even allowed you to catalogue the disc!)
If you could get hold of the source code it may be possible, if there is space to add it.
I am not sure whether the Electron UEF images at Ian Bells site contain the source, but probably a good place to start: http://www.elitehomepage.org/archive/index.htm
