Do NOT use multiple accounts - please trade with your regular (and only) forum account. If you're giving items away, please make it clear if you would be unhappy with the recipient selling on some or all of the items. Similarly, please ensure that the giver is comfortable with you re-selling items you have accepted as a gift. We cannot be held responsible for what happens in these trading forums or for deals done via PM. This must be done at your own risk. If you aren't comfortable with this - make the trade via an alternative site which can apply safeguards of their own. Be sensible - if someone approaches you to trade via PM who is not posting in the public forums, this may be a sign that they are not entirely what they seem. Please report it to the moderators if you receive an unsolicited message from anyone suspicious, so that it can be investigated and hopefully stop anyone being taken advantage of.

FS: Trickysoft physical versions: 01 (Frogger) & 02 (Centipede) 5.25" BBC Disk

Post by Arcadian »

I've made up small runs of Trickysoft Frogger ("TS01") and Trickysoft Centipede ("TS02") for the BBC Micro Model B/B+/Master on 5.25" floppies with Acornsoft-styled inlays and black disc wallets. I've only made a run of 20 of each as I need to conserve my limited stock of disc wallets.

If anyone would like a set, they're £24 the pair (plus £4 UK P&P, £8 Europe, £12 R.O.W.). I can combine postage with other Retro Software releases if you'd like to order other titles at the same time. The current price-list is here: RetroSoftware_PriceList.pdf. (It doesn't include Elementum as I'm making a separate price list for the Retro Power titles ...).

Anyway, if you would like to order the first pair of Trickysoft releases, please post below to reserve your copies then I'll PM back with payment info.

Backup copies are also available on 3.5" DFS Disc, please add £6.00 (2 x £3.00) to your order if you would like a set. They're suitable for the BBC B with 8271 DFS if running the patched 1.21/1.22 DFS Rom, BBC B with 1770 DFS, BBC B+ and BBC Master.

Image


Both games feature new Acornsoft-themed loader and title screens, which are exclusive to the physical copies (drive 2 of each discs contains the 'public' versions of each game - with graphical loader screens and multiple keyboard control options).

Every couple of months I'm going to try and get short runs of the other games done, so in June expect TS03 - Scramble and TS04 - Carnival, then maybe August TS05 - Space Invaders and TS06 - Astro Blaster, then towards the end of the year TS07 - Phoenix and TS08 - Pacman.

By the end of the month the Master Compact versions of Frogger and Centipede should also be available ...
