Are they in their original form, as released, or have they had the bbcmicro.co.uk treatment of adding instructions?

The versions on D105 are as per original as far as I can remember.
No additional info was added as they had to be removed from the disc originally.
The original Retro Software loading programs/logo display have been removed from both disk images on bbcmicro.co.uk and on D105...

Created in January 2019... here is Games Disc 130.
Disc130.zip
(78.48 KiB) Downloaded 29 times

The disc is called Disc130.dsd so it can be loaded into a Datacentre on a real BBC without having to rename it.

The 18 games on this disc include...

Ludo (2P) from The Micro User (5.03).
Goldmine from Input Magazine (Issue 27).
Mars-Lander from Personal Software.
Fisherman Fred from Games Computing (#1).
Patience (Golden Games) from The Micro User.
Simon (AKA Pattern Memory) from Your Computer (2.10).
Pentiles from Silverlind.
Odd One Out (2P) from The Micro User (7.03).

St. George And The Dragon from Personal Software.
Laserbug Grand Prix from Laserbug (Issue 9).

Pucman from Home Computing Weekly.

NOTE: Pucman has been modified to work under OS 1.2.

EASTER EGGS: If you press ESCAPE during some of the loaders and instructions, then you can skip to loading the game... This only works on Ludo.

All original filenames have been kept where possible, but some have been changed where they conflict with the limitations of the Disc Filing System. Copy protection routines have been removed.
This disc has also been checked for *KEY related issues and is OK.

Happy new year!
Mick.

PS. Disc 131 will be out in mid February!
