Yes, it's working on BeebEm, but it was working before on BeebEm for me at least!
I hope you find this "mist" routine and find out why the heck it kicks in too early... [-o<

Hi Lee,
Does the version on my disc 097 work correctly?
It has the tape protection routine saved and downloaded into its proper place, but this was saved after loading the game. It may be that something changes during the loading of each part? Or is there a bug/fault?

Mick.

i think nothing is wrong with the games, i am not a player , but killed by the cheetah :( , not by the misty ??
thats because i am a duikkie believer [-o<

troubles with giving the pitcher :o
trouble with cheetah

in the walkthrough they forgot to write what to do with the "mist"

if i finish the game, can't save it :) , so not killed by cheetah hunderds times :)

i will tell you what you must do with the "mist"

i will write it down in a book.

then you can READ that BOOK #-o :shock: :evil: :twisted: :^o :D :D :D

Hi Duikkie and Michael,

I just don't know what is wrong? Neither does DaveE.
He has played it over 100 times and always dies in the mists. (He now describes it as the worst game EVER!)

I haven't played it that many times, but I have tried all versions on as many platforms as I can, (including the UEF) and none are winnable.
There are even magazine reviews from the 80's that say the same thing!
*BUT* there is a walkthrough solution, so it DOES work on some setups?!
Also, as I have said in other threads, I can't believe it played like this on the authors' computer.
It is a decent adventure, and this is such a massive killer, that I think the "mist routine" needs isolating and killing!

Lee.

Duikkie, you are a genius :lol:

I have finished the game and can declare that the version on Mick's disc 097 works perfectly!

It is the walkthrough that is wrong.
One little fact (That Duikkie knows) and the game can be finished =D> =D> =D>

He he, yeah it's actually is a pretty good game!
I wonder why the authors never replied to all the bad reviews?
Duikkie, did you "hack" the answer? or just think of it yourself??

**I have sent a little update request for the walkthrough at CASA :D

Lee.

**EDIT** Duikkie's disc version is also completeable :D

is my version of sadim castle for mmc allso played to finish ??

i didn't hack anything :lol: , i only looked in the program
did only change the &3ca flag bit routine. combine sadam1,2,3 to one file with m/c downloader , change jmp adress in sadim to &8d0. thats all

if you looking in programs there is no need anymore to play it
all the fun is gone.

Yep I finished your version Duikkie :D (On Beebem)
You are a top adventurer =D>

I may have a little task for you now...
Let's see if you can finish "Xanadu Adventure", another one that nobody can finish!!

You said you don't play games so I don't mind spoiling your fun :lol:

I will start another thread in 5 minutes.....

Let me add my =D> =D> =D>

I got completely bogged down in the early protection triggering on Beebem. Or should I say, I got lost in those swirling mists, not the ones in the actual game! :lol:

Just came back to this thread after originally posting it a few years ago.

However, I don't understand it at all.

"dukkie knows the answer"

Um, which is...?

Do I have to type in "WAIT RIGHT THERE"?

I am loathe to even load up this game again without someone directly telling me what to do when those mists appear. Why are people talking in riddles here? Can someone pm me what I'm meant to do?
