DISK IMAGE...For now the below will not point to today's games until 1/2 hour before game time.

Arcadians
:arrow: http://www.bbcmicro.co.uk/game.php?id=20
======================================================================================
Just a gentle reminder....if you need to copy the game to real hardware or another platform other than jsbeeb, please be organized to do so before the HSC starts to expedite things along. I will update this page about 1/2 hour before game time. Thanks very much.

One other thing..... if you have the ability to set up your system in such a way as to show you playing the game, it would be beneficial if we could have several people doing this. If possible it might make it more entertaining for people watching and remember.... mics on at all times.... :twisted:

Not that it would have affected the overall result, but you used my last score (6220) for Arcadians not my hi-score (8370) :?

That was the only two games I had time to play!

Ah, sorry Helpful, too much of a hurry getting the sheets up, my bad. I'll fix it to reflect your true score.
