Akalabeth - World of Doom (Ultima 0)

Postby sbadger » Thu May 18, 2017 7:43 am

Hi there,

Thought I should share the fact that i'm porting Richard Garriott's Akalabeth for the Apple II to the beeb. Often considered Ultima 0 in Richard G's series.


I've made some progress, the initial stat setup and shop are working and i've made an initial stab at the outside map.
It's been 30 odd years since programming on the beeb, (well master, the size of the code is too big at the moment for graphic modes on the bbc b)

Some pics of progress...

char creation



i'm working on it in downtime, but hopefully will make some progress over the next few weeks.
