We have that one as well (coverage of C&VG is good, as all the issues were online):

Not sure if it's counted as a game but found "Predictor" for the BBC/Electron in Personal Computing Today May 1984. it doesn't appear on the bbcmicro.co.uk site. Let me know if you want that.

I think I actually typed this one in myself!

As far as I remember, we have 100% coverage from C&VG, but if you spot anything we missed:

But we don't have any Atom titles from Personal Comupting Today, where you located Trang from.

Many thanks,

Are you interested in any of these others which I have?
I'm very interested in the Atom listings from Personal Computing Today, which are all MIA:
viewtopic.php?p=359913#p359913

(We currently have nothing in the Atom Software Archive from Personal Computing Today)

From the covers you posted it looks like there are Atom type-ins in the following:
- November 1982
- December 1982
- March 1983
- May 1983

Plus any others you can find. :D

Hi,
I don't need Predictor, but I will have KNIGHTS please :D

I have a feeling it isn't game, but maybe a version of "Knight's Tour"?

Thanks,

Lee.

Thanks for "Knights".
I don't need anything from Personal Software Spring 1983.
I have already typed them all in.
It should be pointed out that there are still hundreds of games that have been typed in but not yet uploaded to the site.....

No problem, I’ll take a look next week when I’m back in the office (where most of my Beeb stuff is at the moment).

Atom listings are as follows ..

November 1982 - No code listings, but there is a list of software available for the Atom and the suppliers details
December 1982 - Atom Chainloader p71 by Bruce Smith
March 1983 - Inverse video p66 by N.Tonks
May 1983 - Calendar (perpetual calendar) p80 by Barry Pickles

Let me know if you want any of these capturing or are you only interested in games?

Once photos are taken from these magazines they’re being donated to RMC for the cave library. I was there last night and they have loads of other magazines if you would like me to look the next time I’m volunteering there.
I was volunteering at the RMC Cave on Friday night. There are tons of magazines but no Personal Computing World or any others which may have listings for Acorn computers except the usual suspects (A&B / Micro User / Acorn User / Electron User / C&VG) - I imagine you’ve already got listings from all of those or they’re online somewhere.
