Thanks for the memories

Postby rsunderland » Tue Mar 27, 2012 12:47 pm

I was googling around and lo and behold I came across the Atari Legend pages and a STAC adventure game I wrote back in 1990. I'd kept the old disks just in case I ever worked out how to run the game from a PC, but for a long time didn't think it was possible. Or if it was it was too complicated. So I was astonished to be able to download the game and an ST emulator and get it all running again on my PC. I can't believe how small the file is compared to say a Word document, but with a lot more work involved!

I never really thought I'd see the game again, so this is a big thank you to whoever created the site and put all the files up.

It's our pleasure! I can't take any credit for this particular case though.
Would you mind sharing which game it was?

Anyway, hopefully you decide to pop in once in a while and chat on this forum.

The STAC sub-section was something I used to find and catalogue games under on AL. Glad it helped you get back to your past ;-)

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk
