After a long time in the re-mastering stage... here is Games Disc 088.
Disc088.zip
(172.73 KiB) Downloaded 41 times
The disc is called Disc088.dsd so it can be loaded into a Datacentre on a real BBC without having to rename it.
It was originally created back in April 1995.

The 18 games on this disc include...

Pinball from The Micro User (5.12).
Quiz Quest from Alligata Software.
Star Force Seven from Bug-Byte Ltd.
Dungeon Quest (E) from The Electron User (3.01).
Mindbender from Beebugsoft (Games 3).
Reversi (E) from Microbyte Software.
Protector from Acorn Programs (Vol.3).
Super Digga (E) from The Electron User (5.05).
Bridge Challenge (E) from LiveWire Software Ltd.
Brian Clough's Football Fortunes from CDS Software Ltd.
Escape The Goulogs from The Micro User (2.08).
Battlefields from BBC Soft.
Turf-Form from Blue Ribbon Software.
Owzat from Virgin Games Ltd.
Knight Game (AKA Knight's Journey) from Acorn Computing (12.13).
Bridge Master by J. Keyne.
Masterbrain (Games Of Strategy) from Acornsoft Limited.
Crypton (E) from The Electron User (5.12).

NOTE: Quiz Quest loads in filenames that need to be unlocked at all times, otherwise they will not show up on the options page. You can also create and save your own data to disc.
Also, Dungeon Quest, Reversi, Super Digga, Bridge Challenge and Crypton are Electron titles that have been amended to work on a BBC Micro.
Also, Owzat is a disc edit. You cannot create your own teams, and they have been created for you.
Lastly, Bridge Challenge and Battlefields are disc edits and you can only load and play one part at a time.

EASTER EGGS: If you press ESCAPE during some of the loaders and instructions, then you can skip to loading the game... This only works with Masterbrain.

Almost every game on this disc has been re-mastered from original sources. In many cases, instructions from the inlays have also been included and grammar corrected.

All original filenames have been kept where possible, but some have been changed where they conflict with the limitations of the Disc Filing System. Copy protection routines have been removed.
This disc has also been checked for *KEY related issues and is OK.

Regards,
Mick.

PS. This was originally the last of my Games Discs, but since the creation of BeebEm and b-em, I have been able to create some new Games Discs featuring titles that have since been found and posted on the internet on sites such as Stairway To Hell. Therefore, I will shortly post the newly created Games Discs from 2009 onwards here.

Created in December 2009... here is Games Disc 101.
Disc101.zip
(134.72 KiB) Downloaded 35 times
The disc is called Disc101.dsd so it can be loaded into a Datacentre on a real BBC without having to rename it.

The 18 games on this disc include...

Eyes (Unreleased) from Ocean Software.
Xenapor by Mark C. Wheadon.
Uggies Garden (Unreleased) from Superior Software.
Professor Blubble by Chris Dewhurst.
Xor: Procyon's Mazes (Unofficial) from Logotron / Astral.
Strawberry Fields from JBF Software.
Percy's Panic (E) from The Electron User (2.06).
Ship Wrecked (E) from Electron User Group (30).
Invatron from Dano Software.
Blitz from 8-Bit Software (Issue 47).
Cookie (Unreleased) from Ultimate Play The Game.
Pac-2000 from James Watson Software.
Manic Mansion by Chris Dewhurst.
X*L*C*R: Squiggly Snake II (PIAS 19) (Unofficial) from ProAction.
Percy's Revenge: Percy Panic II from Garadan.
Tennis (E) from Electron User Group (23).
USS Endeavour (AKA US Invaders) from The Micro User (3.12).
Bombhunt from S&H.

NOTE: Xenapor has had its Bomb key changed from £ to TAB to make it work better with a QWERTY keyboard.
Also, Uggies Garden features a screen editor and you can save your screens to disc.
Lastly, Percy's Panic, Ship Wrecked and Tennis are Electron titles that have been amended to work on a BBC Micro.

EASTER EGGS: If you press ESCAPE during some of the loaders and instructions, then you can skip to loading the game... This only works on Ship Wrecked.

Almost every game on this disc has been re-mastered from original sources. In many cases, instructions from the inlays have also been included and grammar errors corrected.

All original filenames have been kept where possible, but some have been changed where they conflict with the limitations of the Disc Filing System. Copy protection routines have been removed.
This disc has also been checked for *KEY related issues and is OK.

Regards,
Mick.

PS. This disc and all the new ones that follow have been created due to the amount of newly found software on internet sites such as Stairway To Hell. They have been created using BeebEm and b-em emulators, but also work on a real BBC Micro model B.

Hi All,
Further discs were created (and still are being) from games posted on this forum.
However, to create and fill these discs I have used newer games, some which are still under copyright. Therefore these discs will not be posted here at the moment and may be several years away.
Hopefully, the games on these discs that are not under copyright can be copied off them and posted on the forum as seperate files. That way they can at least be downloaded and played.

Lastly,
I could have not done any of the re-mastering without the help of numerous people who have posted uef images, tape inlays and checked the spelling.
Also I would not have even started re-mastering my old floppies if the authors of both Beeb-Em and B-em had not done such a great job creating really good and easy-to-use emulators.
Also to Retroclinic who provided me with a new BBC with Datacentre for copying my old discs to my PC.

I still have a bundle of floppies to check, so who knows what I may find (if they still work!)

regards,
Mick.

Mick, just remove Krystal Connection, Zap & Repton: The Lost Realms from the discs and post them.

Problem solved! :)

(I'm not sure if Mountain Panic is on one of the discs too, but that's a 'commercial' game too.)

Anyway, well done on reaching on the release of 100 remastered discs, astonishing work.

Well done Mick =D>

BUT.... could you amend the REM statement on disc 102 and re-post it please.
It breaks the SSD splitting script at the moment!

@Sweh
Would it be better to use "side%" as a way of identifying the number of files on each side of the disc?

Thanks

Lee.

Just checked 106 Mick.
I think I mentioned this somewhere before, but on REVERSI, you may want to make the following changes:

Change all "opponents" to "opponent's" on page 1 and page 2 of the instructions.

On page 2 change:
"black or white, note black moves first." to "black or white. Note: Black moves first."

On page 3 change:
"cannot move a message will appear" to "cannot move, a message will appear"

In theory parsing :side%=(\d+) and then switching sides when having read that many lines of data would be closer to how the BASIC code works, but I think it hardly matters, now :-) Out of the 104+5 disks, only two had bad REM statements!

Thanks for providing this amazing resource.

Is there a text catalogue somewhere so that it is easy to find out what is on each disc without having to load every disc into an emulator?

For those wanting to use 7-Zip on a Windows PC to extract the complete collection, the following command may be helpful. Run this command using a Command Prompt and cd to the directory containing all of the zip files. The command is a single line.

Code: Select all

"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" x *.zip -r -o"C:\Users\<user>\Documents\BeebEm\30thAnniversaryBbcElectronDisks"

Disc071, option Q: Hunchy.

I can't get this to run from RAM on my Datacentre-equipped Model B, even with *DTRAP enabled.

Pressing Q returns me to the menu.

Edit: How odd. In testing, I *IMPORTed it to a floppy. I can verify it runs just fine from there, but since doing so, it now runs from RAM, too.
