Disc 095 checked and is all good :D
It's a shame there is no more room on the disc. The Larsoft loading screens are really nice.

Hi Mick,
Just a reminder that when you get to disc099 you need to use Pernod's version of "Crown of Mardan" as it is the only version that works and is finishable.
It is on his adventure disc 06.

Hi Lee,
Lords of Time only needs the DTRAP because I have included the tune which needs downloading to run, the loader then re-activates the disc drive to load the game using the *DISC command.

Crown Of Mardan has had new data added from Pernod's version, and the downloading routine slightly amended, so now needs checking/testing!

Hi Mick,
I have checked Perseus & Andromeda, Ten Little Indians and Waxworks and they all seem fine.

The instructions for Crown of Mardan seem a little 'scrappy' with spacing being a bit inconsistent after commas etc.
They seem to be the original in-built instructions so probably should be left as they are?

*However* :D Look at the second line of the instructions: "with" is on-screen as "eith". Surely this is not as originally released.
On the CASA archive, look at the synopsis, this indeed does say "There was once a priceless gold crown set with three of the largest precious stones known to man,"

Cheers,
Oh - I have downloaded the map and solution, so I will have a go at it when I get a bit of time :D

Hi Mick,
Re-checked Mardan. It's fine now.
Played it through from beginning to end. It works =D>

I have to say it looks quite an interesting game if any adventurers want to play it properly!

Well, the new instructions for Robin of Sherwood are checked and are fine!

This may be a nice time to look at some of the games that were not working properly.
I will look for the latest list of problems, and post it somewhere :lol:

Check your pm's Mick...

Michael, Lee, and everyone else who has helped with this,

Brilliant work with this amazing collection of disks.

Does an mmbeeb archive of all of these disks exist?

If not, would you mind if I had go a creating one?

Are the final versions of each of these disks available somewhere in a single archive, or do I need to work through this thread and take the latest copy of each disk?

Many thanks,

Dave

Hi Dave,

The final versions of discs 001-100 will become available in the 30th Aniversary thread.
At the moment only the discs from 1984 are available in their final versions, although all discs have been re-mastered ready for posting.
I will probably start posting the rest of the discs after xms, although I am still hoping to obtain missing inlay and loading screen data before then otherwise further re-posting of discs will be required.

I hope you enjoy these discs and I hope the games on them are now bug free and presented in such a way that they will last for a long time to come.

Lastly,
thanks again to everyone who has helped me re-create my original games with inlay info and corrected game play.

Mick.

Here's an MMB file I've put together with disks 1 to 100. I've tried to keep this up to date with all the disks as they are posted, both in this thread and the 30th anniversary thread.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/e4lqu75xafo7h ... B.zip?dl=0

As the mmbeeb format doesn't support dsd images, each dsd is split into two ssd's - even numbered disks are drive 0, odd numbers drive 2.

Another thing to note is that some games issue a *DISC command, so these won't work with the Super MMC ROM, which uses *CARD instead. I've been patching these games as I come across them, but the MMB file posted here contains the original unmodified disks.

Enjoy! :D

Chris

Hi Mick,
I already tested 101 to 104:
Here are the results from before...

Disk 101 OK

Disk 102 OK

Disk 103 SPARCE INVADERS surely the sound is not right??

Disk 104 NYAN SID what is happening :lol:

I will test 105 and 106 when I get time.
If anything has changed on 101 to 104 that I might have missed, (such as added instructions or loaders or any changes), then let me know.
