Provisional STL DDFS 2.0 User Manual

Post by SimonSideburns » Sat Aug 26, 2017 4:07 pm

I have painstakingly scanned in the above named document.

I have also manually typed it back in (which was always going to be quicker than trying to use OCR) along with most of the errors.

I'll leave it up to the viewer to correct anything found (if they wish).

I'm happy to attach both the PDF and TXT files.

I'm writing a game where you can change your character from a Wizard to a monkey to a cat.

Well, Imogen that!

Thanks. I think I have one of these with a spare model B motherboard. The manual will come in very useful when I try to get the DDFS working. =D>

Why do I keep collecting Acorn gear? I'm going to need a considerably bigger man-cave. :?

It would be so interesting to see what changed between this provisional manual and the actual one that was sent out. I touch type and had to make my fingers follow what was written as normally I would have corrected as I went along. I did spot several issues, even with the BASIC listings that had been provided.

Anyone have one?
