Re: Hi From Weston-super-Mare, England

Wow, thankyou, but if you like modern ports/remakes, you might have to buy a Master for Stunt Car Racer and Prince of Persia by the Bitshifters plus all their demos! Yeah I have seen them on YouTube and they look amazing, but my heart was for a BBC B, it’s what I played on around my friends as a te...

Scramble small sound bug

Hi Richard, I am fairly new to this site and the BBC. I have been thoroughly enjoying playing Scramble even though I am terrible at it. This may already be know but if you run out of Lives and a Bomb is falling you return to the game screen and a continuous note of the bomb falling is played. I thin...

Re: How to reboot PiTubeDirect using CALL?

Unfortunately I am not a programmer and don’t understand how to implement this. Is there any chance you could post a program to do what I want. I would be very grateful.

How to reboot PiTubeDirect using CALL?

Is it possible to reboot a PiTubeDirect using some form of call?
In bbc b mode I can ?&FE4E=127:CALL!-4 to reset but this doesn’t work if pitube is on.
My PiTubeDirect boots using the default 0 option.

I cannot find anything anywhere about it. [-o<

Hi.

If you're playing ELITE on the PC, then this strip might come in handy.

I've included useful information on it as well.
Thank you for this. Very nice and very useful!

The game Gorf from the arcades. If you could add the speech to swram like you did with Astro Blaster that would be amazing! Other games I would like on the BBC Xevious BombJack Track n Field Paradroid (c64) Oh and if the games could save the high-score to disc that would be fantastic. It’s a real sh...

Re: Flicker-free Elite on the BBC Micro (like the BBC Master)

How goes your efforts to enhance other versions of Elite, (flicker-free). Have you released or close to release any other versions?
Hopefully you are, I’m waiting on the Flicker-free tube version. 🤩

Re: Flicker-free Elite on the BBC Micro (like the BBC Master)

Can the tube version be fixed in the same way? Yes, that's the plan. Mark A de-flickered tube version with standard colours (and no 3D text) would be good.
