Repton: The Lost Realms

Post by mygrandmawheels » Thu Oct 11, 2018 7:33 am

Hello, how can I buy a copy of Repton: The Lost Realms?
I wached on www.retrosoftware.co.uk but there it says that I must search on eBay, and finally I found nothing.
I would need the ssd file also, because I don't own a physical BBC micro (by the way, anyone selling a Master? Even if broken?)

Many thanks!

I thought Retro software still sold physical copies?
I'd like it too but a physical copy is no use to me as I don't have any physical hardware either :/

If retrosoftware still sell copies of this game, well, I couldn't find...
My question is: anyone has a contact (an email, I mean) with someone who sell it?

Thanks!

You need to buy the physical copy to get the image. Try messaging Arcadian on here?

the real 'deal' :^o here:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BBC-Model-B- ... :rk:1:pf:0
£22.49 inc P&P :shock: , sure I bought mine weeeelllll cheaper than that! :D

if anyone needs the .SSD, you NEED to buy the original from RetroSoftware, then get it emailed to you.

don't know about 2nd hand stuff, as that defeats the whole point :(

BUT if you take a pic of original with a dated newspaper & picture of your face to confirm, can PM it,
if no one else can be bothered anymore..... :wink:

EDIT: just noticed that eBay one is for the electron 51/4" DFS 80T, can anyone confirm if this is for DFS &E00 ??
reason I ask, is I don't even have that, just the tape versions, as I made the Masters copies, and tape to disc only works &E00

Hi.

I was also looking on the Retro Software website hoping to order a copy of Repton: The Lost Realms too.

Have you had any luck getting a copy?

Many thanks.
