I am not discarding the idea of Scotland SteveM, even if your suggestion was a joke, if the right job shows up i will relocate. :P Not a joke. As you know I lived there for a few years and I had good times. We moved to come back to Cumbria where we could set up our business, which there wasn't much...

Interface building

Well I'm a bit far from having any interfaces available. I need to source a few key parts and order numerous components as I have only about half of those needed. The Cumana interface was alleged to be the most commonly used at one point but it is essentially the same as the Microdisc. 3" disks are ...

Re: Euphoric and DosBOX

Still on my way to try to find out the best way to get a windowed version of Euphoric, I tried DosBox . The software is actually quite simple to use, and Euphoric runs partly fine. At least I can run programs, and have access to the debugger. ) The problem I had with DOSBox was the way it looks for...

Retiring Fabrice

Hi, Fully understand the wish to concentrate on your own stuff. It can be exhausting trying to sort things for others and doesn't allow time for your own enjoyment. It'd be nice if you could pop in now and again. We'll miss your input greatly. Thanks for all your help in the past. regards, Steve M

Sound problems with XP

Has anyone else suffered from distorted sound when using Euphoric under XP ? My computer has a Soundblaster Live! card and is the same as the one I used with no problems under Win98. But now I've converted to XP I get distorted sound. I've tried pressing F1 which Twilighte recommended some time ago ...

Disk conversion - with XP

I've got XP working reasonably but still have problems with some older progs like the Oric emulator. I've recently been contacted by the author of Revenge of the Beans and I want to convert the prog to PC and email it to him. I have the files on disk. (These don't work on disk - no beans !) The file...

Space 1999

You may recall that Henrik Holm was working on this and got quite a lot of graphic done. IIRC he used HIDE. I think he had converted some of the key sounds and had the basics ready but not the proper program started. It would seem sensible to combine with his efforts and see if something can be comp...

I've never bothered scanning them as they were fairly common here and most people that were interested in them managed to get hold of them. I suppose there are pe...
