Re: Another Classic Ported to TRS-80 MC-10

I see we have A Bátor Lovag for C64 in the database...
http://solutionarchive.com/game/id%2C62 ... %2C+A.html

Is that the same/similar game? Do we need an entry for the C16 game, as we don't appear to have it?

Oh... great job as usual with the port and translation!

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

Thanks for that and for your time. I've had a nose at the basic file... it doesn't quite seem to be Spectrum BASIC compatible as it stands... this is the version you ran on the Spectrum?

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

Basicode does sound really interesting.

Would it be possible to have a copy of the Spectrum basic file, so we can make the game available on the various Spectrum archives?

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

Looking at them side by side, that does just look like another Basicode version. Aside from the formatting/spacing differences, it's mostly the first block that has a few lines extra or omitted when compared to the other listing.

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

It's an interesting area to research... although I'd heard of BASICODE vaguely in the past, I have never really looked into it that deeply. It's possible that the other source you have is just a translation of the BASICODE to a different BASIC, I guess. Can you post a link to it, or some extracts? T...

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

(For those who are interested, you can play the BASICODE version in the browser through this site. It's listed in the Best of Basicode 6 collection, accessed in programs.

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

I presume you have this BASICODE source? https://github.com/robhagemans/basicode/blob/master/Best_of_Basicode_6/TIJDMACH.BAS From... https://github.com/robhagemans/basicode Which sounds interesting... Designed for broadcast, users would use a translator on their machine to convert the generic BASICO...

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

It seems likely there was a Spectrum version... it's listed in the Speccy archives, and Gerton was the author of a well-know Spectrum emulator (WinZ80). I guess you could ask Gerton himself, directly... https://www.genomicsplc.com/team/dr-gerton-lunter/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/gerton-lunter-3476...

One of my pet hates... an input that doesn't work is actually the response to an input that does!

Re: The Base

If I'd have programmed that, I just would've done a check for STICK PHOTO and made sure the second noun was PASS... Adding an extra check for a preposition is just redundant and can cause frustration. Mind you, these days, I probably would just program STICK PHOTO... I rarely see the need for four w...

Re: The Base

Well done. :) Yeah, I can see why Philip changed that in the Spectrum port.

Re: The Base

Will have another good go this evening. I've done a quick vocab check. You can gauge what words are in the vocabulary by typing them in, in isolation, and seeing which response you get. Verbs that are in the vocab: stick, insert, place, put, use Nouns that are in the vocab: pass, photo, glue, tube V...
