Hi from Rik

Post by Rik »

Hi Everyone.

I had a BBC B Micro, back in 1984. Sadly, I got rid of it in 1991.
Well, I've just got myself another BBC B and I was totally surprised to see that there are drives that take USB sticks and these drives will play .ssd files.

OK. You're all going to ask where have I been all these decades?!

Well, if you're not in the loop, then you get so out of touch.

Anyway. I also play my favourite games on the BeebEM, on my PC.
And I decided to create some icons for these games.
I've done about 25 of these. (Please see attached image of some.)

Could you tell me if members would like to have these (and I may create more) and more importantly, where to post the .ico files?

Welcome, they look great.
You could just start a thread a post them as you go, or possibly put them on github, it probably depends on the size; but I doubt they are hugh!
If you get a GOTEK, there are now a couple of menu systems for it, mine is here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16070 and has versions for BEEB.MMB SD card solutions, MMFS and GOTEK with Flash Floppy firmware.

Hi Rik,

You can do a quiz with your icons, what's the name of the game :lol: They look very nice.
Welcome to this forum, enjoy your visits here.

When I make other Icons, I will post them in the complete BBC games archive

I just came across another great game called 'Push The Bale'.
I've posted the icon for it in the complete BBC games archive.
viewtopic.php?f=51&t=22121

It's a totally fiendish game. I'm stuck on screen 10.

EDIT: Don't panic! I've done screen 10.
