Re: The Medway Boys Protector III and Steem SSE

The fixed v4 was done to get around it crashing on 4MB machines (in general) from memory.

Re: Eden Blues... What was it?

Not a game I remember playing much in the early days, so the video is as near as I've come to it :)

A lot of the early Atari ST games from France (Ere Informatique, Infogrames and others) were Amstrad ports. Hence some of them having a small play area on screen such as Prohibition.

Watch the walkthrough video (from the original CPC version) - maybe that will give you a clue? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ginrCJJ9Rzg

Re: sddisk image release with all compacts disks and demos?

As far as I'm aware, there is Ppera's SD card image, but you have to buy that from his website - or it comes as part of his HD driver suite. I can't remember the exact details of how it was released . I think it can either pre-made for a certain size of SD card. Once written it appeared with multipl...

Re: SNDH Files (Grazey Zak Hacks) include in GFA?

LP has just announced (via the GFA BASIC page on FB) that he's added a new SNDH play command to his souped up version of GFA BASIC. Which also has an Ice Depacker option built-in command too.

Re: Help (walkthrough) needed for "Black Dawn" text-adventure

OK, understood that STAC hides the text at the game file level. It sounds like LongLifeA1200 was able to read information from the game (Black Dawn) once it was RAM-resident by using the Steem debugger, or maybe I understood that wrongly. No doubt he will enlighten us when he next appears. That's w...

Re: Help (walkthrough) needed for "Black Dawn" text-adventure

There are de-GAC tools out there for the adventures created in the 8-bit version, but nothing exists for STAC (at present). Sounds like a nice project for when you're not in the pub :) It's in my "To Do (at some point).txt" file on my laptop :) Initial thoughts are to compare memory dump ...

Re: Help (walkthrough) needed for "Black Dawn" text-adventure

STAC adventures that work with the launcher program for distribution are encrypted. You'll get nothing useful when looking through the .LNK file. If you have the .ADV file, then that's the development version of the STAC adventure. I only know of Shymer that came with STAC that has both flavours of ...

Re: Editing a message

This was a recent change so as to keep the history of the forum and its threads. It saves people re-editing an older thread and then anyone who's quoted it from looking like they were quoting a completely different post (as one example).

Jaguar boxed ~£120 Jaguar CD boxed - £200+ Controllers (all of them) plus the Team Tap - £100+ The games vary from cheap to sil...
