Forest Trek, a Type-in from Games Computing / Personal Software.

If I add games one at a time I might be promoted to wing commander like Ibisum eventually!

I've noticed that quite a few entries on oric.org have become corrupted; the game's title is missing and the page cannot be opened. Click on the 'Sprites' software games for two examples of this. There are dozens of games affected.
"become corrupted" or "are corrupted"?

Do you mean that at some point they were good, but then they stopped being????

Become, as in the pages for those particular games can no longer be opened but could be previously. Check 'Diamant de Kheops' as an example.

Hmmm, that sucks, I hope it's not hard drive corruption, or some virus :-/

Diamant de Kheops fixed already. I suspect that's thanks to Didier Vallet :D

The only way I know with my limited Oric knowledge is to interrupt the auto-run with POKE #500,1 before loading.
There was an Autorun Inhibit program printed in Your Computer, (I think), which is on Rhetoric disk 5. (On Oric,org)
You can List it after loading from the Menu.

Lander was such a pain to type in. It would have been so much easier to simply use DATA statements and not have to enter # for every single byte of data.

Ankhsenamon. I believe this game is available on oric.org on a multi-game disk but here's the individual file.

About the broken entries on oric.org - if you are logged in, the entries are broken. If you are not logged in, the entries work (screenshots are visible, etc.). Seems like the javascript() is not being emitted properly for logged in users, somehow ..

Ok, i'm not a "normal" user but i didn't encountered this discrepancy

It has been published on CEO-SOFT 6 (alone)
https://www.oric.org/software/ceo_soft_6-2266.html

(but by linking the 2 pages, i could have created a bug, to be restored soon)
