Golf Game from TMU 7.12 Feb 1990

Post by Michael Brown » Mon Jan 06, 2020 12:57 pm

Hi All,
I am hoping to include the Golf Game and its designer program on a new disc later this year.
However, The instructions in the mag state that you will find a nine hole course on the disc, but there are only 6 on the disc and only 3 on the tape version.
There are some more on 8.01 but these are the same first 4 courses as 7.12 disc.

Not sure if the instructions are wrong or files are missing.

Does anyone have the original 7.12 and 8.01 discs or tape to check.
many thanks
Mick.

I don't have the original media, but here are my copies of the tape- and disc-images:

Thanks for these, however, they are the same I have with the corrupted GOLF21 file on 7.12.

I think I may have solved the issue.
On 8.12 there is a faulty decompactor.
However, if you change the faulty NEXT statement at line 190 to UNTILFALSE then it decompacts 9 totally new screens and saves them as GOLF1 to GOLF9 (best copying this program to a blank disc first).
This now means there is a total of 15 courses if you include the GOLF21 to GOLF26 files.
Will check through the Micro User scans on 8bit later in the week to see what is going on.

Mick.

Not much to read about in 8.1 and 8.2, but it looks like the 9 courses from 8.2 are the actual game and the ones on the earlier issues may have been samplers.

Adding line 411 to the main game with f=1 just to to cheat, the game does go through all 9 courses then ends with the score chart.

Thanks for the help.

This is now sorted.

so 8.02 had 9 hole course 1 compacted
8.03 had 9 hole course 2 compacted (which Golf21 to 26 were part of)
and
8.04 had 9 hole course 3 compacted.

I will now be putting each course onto a new games disc in due course (no pun intended!)

Mick.
