eBay game prices

I've just checked out eBay for the first time in over a year to see if there are any bargains or job-lots going for Oric Games so I could potentially start collecting again. I simply could not believe my eyes when I saw the prices some games were listed at. Candyfloss & Hangman and Reverse by IJK; £...

Re: Gamebase Oric V1.00

I'm so depressed living in the UK amongst Bigots, Xenophobes, Racists and Homophobes that I have decided to delay work on my Gamebase and buy a Kitten instead to calm my nerves. I feel ashamed to be English... (yes I know I wasn't working on it much anyway but I feel kinda drained after the devastat...

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...
