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.

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

The original Retro Software loading programs/logo display have been removed from both disk images on bbcmicro.co.uk and on D105...

Hi All,
I never had the RS loaders as the copies I had were taken off my BBC from Retroclinic.
Now that they have been posted, I have been able to add them to Disc105.

So, just re-posted Disc 105 again in section 8 with the full versions.
Thanks again to everyone who has made this possible.

Mick.

Hi All,
Just re-posted Disc 110 in section 9 with the latest version of Astroblaster from Tricky.
The newer version is smaller in size with less files.

Hi All,
Just re-posted Disc 111 in section 10 with the correct version of Championship Boxing from Pan Books Ltd.
The newer version has the correct filename and author otherwise there is no change.

Created in January 2019... here is Games Disc 130.
Disc130.zip
(75.89 KiB) Downloaded 6 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 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 from The Micro User (7.03).
Serpents from Personal Software.
Bomber from Acorn User (92.9).
Map Game from Acorn Programs (Vol.1).
ICBM Attack!!! from Laserbug (Issue 16).
Traditional Board Games from Garland Computing Games.
St. George And The Dragon from Personal Software.
Laserbug Grand Prix from Laserbug (Issue 9).
Whack-A-Mole! from Personal Computing Today.
Espionage from The Micro User (5.05).
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... None on this disc.

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!
Discs 132 to 135 are also in the works!

Hi All,
Just re-posted Disc 060 in section 4 as thanks to Lee, Caterpillar from C&VG has been amended as it was almost impossible. Variables at lines 430 and 450 have been amended from 8 to 16 to make your Caterpillar move further from side to side.

Mick.
