Games for your BBC Micro from Virgin Books

Post by leenew » Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:20 pm

Hi,
Does anyone have a scan of this book?
The copy at 8bs is faulty. The archive will not open. http://8bs.com/othrdnld/manuals/publica ... _Micro.zip
** Ideally, a working copy of this zip would be great, as it comes with a disc with all the games on **
Thanks,

Lee.

I had a copy of this book back in the day and, trust me, the games are even worse than you think they're going to be :lol:

The file at the end of
Virgin_Games_For_Your_BBC_Micro\pdfvgfybm.zip\PDF\PDFVGFYBM.ZIP is actually a PDF,so won't open as a ZIP

Not faulty, as such, just the wrong extension :D
