‘Ankhsenamon’ is already on Oric.org under Ceo-Soft 6, so it seems sensible to list it and provide the file under it’s correct name - so I’ve added Dave’s file there.

I also seem to recall that Laurent did an English translation, I’ll have a search when I’m home next week.

Fisher Sam, no knowledge of this whatsoever but it works.
It's a type-in - I believe from Games Computing published by Argus. It may also appear in another Argus magazine such as Personal Computing Today(?)

Fisher Sam doesn't work quite right because of the French character set on Sedoric.
I've corrected the bootup so that the fishing line appears as it should.

Sedoric1.key was added to the disk (I always prefer to use that), but in the end it wasn't required.

Here's Chockies, a type-in from Games Computing. I've added both the English and French versions.

Also from Games Computing we have 'Escape'.

Jeux Olympiques by Micropuce. It comes as 5 files so they will all need to be in the same directory for it to load correctly.

Hi Dave,

I’m just about keeping up with you getting these files on Oric.org :)

I’m having problems with the RAR file, could you possibly repeat it as a ZIP? Thanks

I’ve been checking these as I’ve uploaded them to Oric.org - over the years some of the info on type-ins has been speculative or duplicated. The results are (unless you know differently!):

Egg Catcher - Personal Computing Today, March 1985, never in GC
U-Boat - PCT, also March 1985 issue, never in GC
(I have the originals of these first two)

Painter - not GC, but I don’t know in which mag or when it was published (but I did put it on the Public Domain list, CPD-27)
Alien Invasion - not GC, but again I can’t place it

You can check all issues bar one of Games Computing here http://www.flaxcottage.com/GamesComputing/default.asp
There seem to be no Oric type-ins in the missing Feb 1985 issue going by the cover.

Great work, Dave!
