switching Beebem to US format

Post by starshine » Fri Jul 05, 2019 7:14 am

is there a US version of the BASIC kernel? I find it easier to spell color in the US format, less strain on the wrists. also, this is being done from a laptop, so it's somewhat uncomfortable
Micro is a misnomer, the computer is HUGE...and awesome. as is the community :D

Yes. You need to find the existing BASIC2 rom in your emulator and replace it with BASIC3 from here: http://mdfs.net/Software/BBCBasic/BBC/

Exactly how you do this will depend on which emulator you are using. EDIT doh, I just noticed you already said Beebem! I can't recall exactly how to do it but if you need help just ask.

Hope this helps. :D

Why not just type 'C.'? Even less strain on the wrists.

Don't worry about replying to this. It was a troll. I'll lock the thread.
