Created in November 2019... here is Games Disc 140.
Disc140.zip
(52.34 KiB) Downloaded 6 times
The disc is called Disc140.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...

Jog from What Micro?
Attack (Take off with the Electron and BBC Micro) from Granada Publishing Ltd.
Solitaire (E) from The Electron User (1.10).
Sheepdog Trial (21 Games For The BBC Micro) from Granada Publishing Ltd.
April Fool Island from Popular Computing Weekly (2.13).
Energy Fields (Sixty Programs For The BBC Micro) from Pan Books Ltd.
Dice Poker by R. P. S. Price.
Builder from What Micro?
Storm from Big K Magazine (Issue 6).
Yahtzee! (2P) from The Micro User (7.03).
Milly The Mink from Which Micro? & Software Review (#25).
Night-Raid from Personal Computing Today (2.06).
The Frog from HeLixSoft.
Simon (AKA Sensational Simon) from Practical Computing (7.02).
Barrage (2P) (The Giant Book Of Games) from Fontana Publishing.
Dam Eaters (Sixty Programs For The BBC Micro) from Pan Books Ltd.
Foxhole from What Micro?
Radar from PCW Software.

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

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.

Regards,
Mick.

Disc 141 will be out in early December with some more Christmas Crackers!

This disc has also been checked for *KEY related issues and is OK.

Happy Xmas,
