Re: Gamebase Oric V1.00

Yes but I managed to find a copy online and re-downloaded it. Needless to say I now have considerably more back-up copies! Some of the type-in games I was adding to V4 were on a memory stick so that's saved me some time at least.

Re: Gamebase Oric V1.00

Tetrix is available in the V3 release of Gamebase Oric. I was working on V4 but lost everything after my hard drive and backup drive crashed. Although V4 may never see the light of day I am still slowly adding new games just in case my motivation returns.

Re: Adventure Games and Solutions, Help needed !

Excellent! I bid nearly £40 for this game on eBay years ago but still didn't win it!

Re: "Autoroute" by Peter Shaw

It stands for Motorway 4, all Motorways in the UK are numbered. I live next to the M62 which is one of the worst in the UK!

Re: "Autoroute" by Peter Shaw

Pieton appears to be based on the game M4 which was indeed by Peter Shaw. It's a listing in 'Games for your Oric'. It likely was renamed Autoroute as that is a far better name than M4 (which only makes sense in the UK).

Re: Encounter - Corruption, or protection?

The version I had ended with GOT13550. I've checked line 13550 and it seems to be the correct GOTO line so I simply corrected the spelling mistake which doesn't appear to have caused any kind of corruption in the code.

I managed to find a scan of the review which indeed was in Issue 176. I've added it to this post as an attachment.

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I managed to find a copy of Issue 175 today but there was no review in the Magazine. I guess it's going to be in Issue 176 which supposedly goes on sale today or tomorrow. I will look out for it!

Re: Pinball Wizard

Oh - I thought Pinball Wizard would be different to Macadam Bumper, but it does look basically the same. Macadam Bumper sounds a bit more American to me. So is Accolade the parent company of Ere ? And then it was Infogrames. Did Infogrames buy Accolade or vice versa? A complete guess but I would im...

Re: Copy programs.

I have found 'Private Copy' by Micropuce to be invaluable to me, however I'm not familiar with the software you mentioned so don't know if this what you require.

Re: OASIS development

I'm looking forward to playing this. The Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion point and click games are some of my favourite games of all time. To play a similar game on the Oric will be amazing!

Re: Not another boulder dash clone!

Just noticed a slight error on the title screen; the game was created by Peter Liepa but you've spelt it Lepia! Not important (might be to Peter... :wink: ) but probably worth amending if you ever release an updated version.
