The spelling of manoeuvre has been corrected on Asteroids Deluxe on Disc016. 3. On Disc046 in Perplexity's instructions the...

Re: Electron to BBC Conversions

I don't suppose anyone has been able to convert Flightpath 737 to work on the BBC B from its original Electron version?

Re: New version of Centipede for the BBC Micro (in progress)

Hi Tricky
This looks fantastic.
Thanks for the lives!

Any chance of being able to press BREAK to exit.
I believe moving code down and over &258 causes the problem.

regards,
Mick.

Re: New version of Centipede for the BBC Micro (in progress)

Hi Tricky,

Fantastic!

Is there any chance of you doing a splash screen?
Also I hope you can include at least a "Game Over"

regards,
Mick.

PS Keep up the good work!

Hi Col,
Sorry, I didn't see the bit at the top ref Pharaoh's Tomb.

Had a busy weekend with the wife in hospital and I want to get as much stuff sorted and posted before I go away in March, so my posts are a bit short.
I will try in future to name some names when posting stuff.

BBC Sub Hunt from Betasoft wanted

Hi all,
Does anyone have a BBC B tape version of Sub Hunt by Betasoft?
Or the BBC version of War At Sea, which also featured Blockade (which I have).
Both games were by Philip Coulson.

thanks,
Mick.

Re: Wanted BBC B Aeronautical Dogfight 1

Looking further at this, in the G.AD1 5 file there is a *FX163,128,1 command which IIRC is an Electron prompt. So was this game an Electron only version of the game or was there a BBC Version? Or is Aeronautcal Dogfight an Electron version and Aeronautical Dogfight 2 the BBC version? I would really ...
