Just had to re post Disc 117.

This is due to me making the decision to include the newly restored Micro User game called Water Works and this replaces Micro User's Solitaire which has now moved to Disc 118 which is out next month.
This was done because Water Works contains 6 files and there was 7 file spaces left on Disc 117 whereas disc 118 did not have enough and so Disc 119 would have had to have been used which isn't due out until the new year.

regards,
Mick.

Just re-posted Disc 102 due to Lee finding the correct version of Defence Com from the Acorn User.
This version has the correct author and correct keys.
Just a minor change, but one still worth doing.

Mick.

PS Disc118 is due out early December and features some great xmas game!

Hi All,
Just re-posted Disc033 due to correcting a minor fault in the high score of Teletext Invaders spotted earlier by Lee. Purple Invader now displayed for 30 points.

regards,
Mick.

PS Disc118 is coming very soon!
Disc119 now with Lee for testing!

Hi All!
Just in time for Xmas, here is... Disc 118.

Disc118.zip
(109.31 KiB) Downloaded 7 times


Yet another mixed bag of goodies for Xmas 2017.

Firstly there are the usual Micro User/Electron User/Beebug/Acorn Computing games including Sqwhere?, Road Racer, Pontoon, Christmas Lights, Aces High, Christmas Box, Santa and the Snowman, Reversi and Snow Plough!
Then there are two basic games from Your Computer called Connect Four and Othello.
Paras is from Acorn User.
There is a massive game called World War I from Lothlorien and also Know Your Own Psi Q from Mirrorsoft.
Also some old ASP games called Planetfall and The White Barrows.
Simon is part of the Games Compendium from Salamander.
Lastly,
767 Advanced Flight Simulator from Flightdeck. I am not sure if all the inlay info has been included for this game, so it may be that I have to add any extra details (if and) as they come my way.

Enjoy!
Mick.

NOTE: The games on this disc have been checked for *KEY issues and are all OK.

Disc 119 is with Lee for checking and should be out at the start of the new year.
Discs 120 and 121 are well into production thanks to Lee finding loads of old magazine games.

EDIT: Disc re-posted due to including instructions for Paras taken from Acorn User magazine scans.

Is Apocalypse posted on the disk as an alternative version?
You're aware that http://www.stairwaytohell.com/bbc/archi ... ommand.zip is the same game, but a native disk version which requires no amendments and has more scenarios to play...

Hi Bill,

The version of Apocalypse I have included is the Red Shift tape copy, but I have borrowed the disc fix from the larger Command Software version and added that to it.
I have tried to create a version that is as close to the tape version as possible.

regards,
Mick.
