Re: Preview of Manic Miner for the ST

I guess I can hold off pressing the X key with a little self control!

The game plays very similar to the Spectrum version, so this why I'm becoming a little addicted!

I'm also thinking at Christmas I will get the real STE setup on a big screen :)

Re: Preview of Manic Miner for the ST

Well I did cheat a little... But this is why I would like the v1 release to only have the two lives. I think you get an extra life at 10 000 points? Anyway once I go through a level I usually remember it after a few go's. I did spend a lot of time on Manic Miner when I was about 12! Thanks for the f...

Re: Preview of Manic Miner for the ST

So I managed to hit 25000 points now , so making good progress. I noticed on level 2 when you drop into the exit door, Willy appears to stay outside of the door, but all other levels the door masks his body if that makes sense. Also I found on the Kong levels when you jump to flick the switches, the...

Re: Preview of Manic Miner for the ST

Tonight I managed to get through the first 5 levels without losing a life!
Really enjoying this conversion, so thank you for doing it!

Hi Robson, got mine mid week, thanks. Envelope was a bit torn (could be the puppy!) and a mild kink but straightened out fine. Great quality. Thanks!

Re: Preview of Manic Miner for the ST

Got to level 3 without losing a life last night.
the old magic is coming back.
On level 2 the key at the top right on the ceiling needs to be collected by jumping on to the platform but the original Spectrum you jump through the platform to get the key..
I prefer the new way though!

Re: Preview of Manic Miner for the ST

Hi, I forgot to say in my feedback that I used to do the 1st level with minimal movements/stopping and maximum efficiency. The game plays pretty much the same as I remember but can I complete it in the style I did before!! Nope!! Maybe tomorrow night :-)

Re: Preview of Manic Miner for the ST

Yes of course, happy to help!
I will send you a PM. It's been a few years since I played it (15?) but I found my old rubber keyed Spectrum in the loft and it still worked. So I played Manic Miner, Chaos and Atic Atac!

Re: New TT + FALCON/ST PC-like case.

Whilst there is a lot of demand for a PC-like case for ST/Falcons the ones that get started are to fill a personal gap or goal. They're developed by one person and the project gets very complex looking at different motherboards and expansion boards. That's fair enough if the developer has a need for...

Re: What is the latest Papyrus version?

Them we should approach Nick and ask him if there is any obstacles for ROM logicware to release Papyrus as a freeware? After that we should write to Hendrik...

Re: Beginning of very long journey

Do board designers typically source their own materials and send to China for production? Or do they take a Bill of Materials and then quote to buy and ...

Re: Doom for TT030.

However, I don't know whether Jaguar Doom level files are compatible with PC Doom, i.e. could one use same level files to get proper comparison between the engines.
