Author of The Hobbit Veronika Megler interview

Don't know if everyone's seen this. An interview with Veronika Megler over at The Register:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/18 ... eminisces/

Quite similar to the one that was published in Retro Gamer magazine a while back.

Hey that's a nice piece!

Sadly led me onto this one about Mike Singleton

Some amazing games!

I had a bought version of the hobbit for a bbc b and both the version for OS0.1 and the one for OS1.2 always crashed mid adventure.
:(
Even modern extended emulator versions seem to crash on emulators.

Had the Hobbit BITD but can't recall it crashing.

But didn't get very far through it (or any adventure game!)

Are you saying it crashed BITD or that you've recently got a version of it and it's crashing a lot? On real machines or emulators or both? There's probably a walkthrough for it so might not take that long (?) to get to the crash point?

Both.
But it was obviously annoying BITD when your Christmas present/Birthday present crashes all the time before you have hardly got anywhere in the adventure...
But at least the accompanyingf Novel was good :)
