Thanks,
I notice that the b-em link (to sth) is to quite an old version (may still be the latest release though).

I Think it is, though the new release candidate is looking very good. I will update it when a stable version is released.

Thanks to both of you.
Looks good, but I think you could score more if you tried ;)

Hi Tricky,
Is there a reason the main file is smaller now?

A while back I started making the main file loadable as a ROM and it had to be compressed to do that.
There should be old uncompressed and new compressed, as a side effect, it should load faster :)

Hi Tricky,

Ref the latest version of Frogger...

I noticed that only the ZX:/ keys work in the new version and not the cursor keys, WASD or joystick control.
The basic code looks the same, so have you broken something in the Mchine code?

regards,
Mick.

Hi Tricky
I was wondering if you consider using the same technique to convert ghost and goblins arcade to beeb?

Being a horizontal scroller it would be a better fit for the r-type demo I put up a little while ago.

I did think about it, but it is a big game and I like to kickout everything and have the machine all to myself ;)

There is hobgoblin 2 or even a beebug game.

The CPC version will run on my Pi co-pro based emulator - it plays pretty well and shows what a M128 version might look like. It's still really hard though!
