Monsters and Battle of Britain on disc. Battle of Britain *verifies ok and boots and runs but gives an out of room error on my beeb so not sure about its working status. There are three games on the disc only Blockade runs without error.

Monsters runs fine.

£5 plus p&p.

Some magazines and a couple of books. Don’t really want to split so as to avoid Mrs Boffin going to the post office too often...

P&p only.

Edit - the disc user magazine has a cover disc with the various bits of software on it which seems to work ok (*verify and loaded several of them).

Some cassettes and a disc game.

The four games in the first photo have all loaded.

I could not get the language tapes to load or Knight Lore sadly. However Knight Lore’s case and instructions are in reasonable shape and may be of use to someone.

Edit - I tried loading the language tapes using the DIN connection on the tape player rather than the ear socket and both loaded fine!

French Mistress - not as exciting as I had hoped. :?
A4F99E17-A019-47CA-9963-AE89F1D40244.jpeg
White knight loaded ok but the volume had to be just so.

Waterloo (40 track disc) loaded fine. The case has been a bit crushed at some point.

£5 plus p&p (Hunchback is quite cool!)

Just found and added ‘Yes Prime Minister’. Not tested.

Edit - added Castle of Riddles (with clue sheets) and a Welcome cassette. Both load ok and are in reasonable condition.

A generic joystick! At least they tried to do beeb colours.

£5 plus p&p.

It wasn’t working when it arrived but I cleaned up the contactors and reattached them and now all is well.

Hopefully the selotape will last another 30 years! The handle has yellowed somewhat.

This is switch based so not much use for Elite...

ANF03 cassette player. I have run a head cleaner through this and spend some time cleaning the pinch roller.
I have never tested saving with this but it loads fine.
It is missing a little paint on the front, under the plastic by the looks of it.
£10 plus p&p.

Another ANF03! This one is in pretty good condition. There are a few scuffs on it as can be seen. I have run the head cleaner through it a few times and cleaned the pinch roller.
I have tested loading a few games. It came with a power lead and DIN to DIN lead both of which are included. You will need to plug something into the ear socket though as otherwise the noise still comes out!
I think it also came with the instruction book. If I can find it I will put it in.
£15 plus p&p.

All of the remaining games are now combined into a single lot - thats the Monsters disc and all the cassettes etc.

I am also adding a copy of Exile. This boots fine on a Master in 40T mode but not on my model B using the same disc drive. The model B does have a turbo MMC installed - not sure if that causes problems?

Exile is not complete - it is missing the manual but has the story book. Ideal for getting past the copy protection! There is a clue sheet and what looks like a photo copied map.

All of the games including Exile £30 plus p&p.

Ultra Intelligent Machine, Database and Wordhunt (untested at the mo).

£20 plus p&p - probably £4 to the UK.

I actually bought UIM specifically but just didn’t get into it. I’m lacking space so it has to go. I have tested it on 40 track with a Master as shown below. The screen shots are poor as the sun is behind the monitor.

Also included is Acornsoft Database and Wordhunt. The database disc is tested to the main menu and includes the instruction book. Wordhunt is currently untested but will do so if I find a spare 20 minutes.
