Is it an image you're after or a physical copy?

Is this a proper MIA title then?

I'm sure I have an original copy somewhere (with manuals etc), I'll try and get it imaged at the next get together I go to :D

ADF images would be fantastic.

They would also complete the set here: http://3dconstructionkit.co.uk/

Well done!

Until this thread I didn't realise this had ever been converted for the Archimedes... I used it a lot BITD on my brother's Amiga though.

I'd be very interested to see some screenshots of the RISC OS version :)

I don't suppose you could scan p56/57 at 600 dpi and email them to me? I scanned a copy many years ago, but appear to have missed those two, so it's been pending PDF creation ever since.

Yes but possibly not until Saturday. The items were sent via recorded delivery, so I need to go for a little walk and collect them :)

Had some fun with !ADFFS but got there in the end. Send me a message if you want a link.

Will get the scanner set up now.

:D

What version of 3D construction kit did you get from your purchase and does it work ok on RISC OS 3? There should be a readme file on the disc worth version and release date.

It says v1.0.0 15/11/91

Runs on my RISC OS 3.11 A5000.

NB: I don't seem to be able to PM or reply to PMs.

Ah, ok thanks, good to know it runs on RO3.

To send PMs you need to either have 25 posts, or ask one of the moderators nicely to enable them.

Hello,
I was (still am) a bit of a C64 3D Construction Kit nut. So I think it is awesome that you have preserved the Archimedes version.
A version 2 for the Archimedes was never made. I recall there was an article on page 11 of issue 11 of the 3D Construction Kit User Group Fanzine that talked about the sales figures of of the Archimedes 3D Construction Kit. Here's the link in case you are interested in this snippet of history, the article title is "Pirates cut their own throats":

Thanks for being awesome!

I completely forgot to check back on this thread! Thanks for the scan of p56-57, I've now downloaded it.
