to answer your question about whether 'Rainbow Adventure' has been typed in, here it is in all its glory on a disk image.
And, just for the heck of it, here's the listing extracted from the disk-image and saved as plain text:

Re: Rainbow Adventure / Jorge Mir

For the record, here's the original(?) source code for One Room (taken from one of the Rainbow Book Of Adventures disk-images that are floating about online somewhere):

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

Made some progress on my independent translation of the BBC Micro version of De Tijdmachine. The majority of the output text has been translated into English. (Thanks, Google Translate!) Input is still in Dutch though. (Translation coming soon.) https://github.com/lurkio/tijdmachine πŸ–– EDIT : The ful...

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

I've emailed you what I have. Unfortunately, I don't remember where I got it. If it's hard to find, maybe we could add it to CASA as a fixed game? Now that Jim Gerrie has done an English translation (thanks Jim), is anyone up for porting that to the BBC and Spectrum? I'll look into what needs to be...

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

Hi. Could anyone direct me to the BBC BASIC version of this game, please? I can't seem to find it online anywhere.

I've found a BASICODE version, but I get the impression from this thread and from the CASA entry that there's a separate BBC BASIC version out there..?

Just for the credits, does Lurkio have a real name? I'm sure I've got it somewhere, but it's quicker to ask.
He'd rather go by just "lurkio".

Nellan Is Thirsty (1980) ported to BBC BASIC

Just wanted to mention the new BBC BASIC port (for the BBC Micro, or BBC BASIC For Windows, etc.) of Furman Smith's child-friendly text adventure game Nellan Is Thirsty:

Random game link failing

Hi. The game "Greg Lemon/Soda - Bacardi Feeling!" appeared in the Random Game box on the CASA homepage, but the link doesn't work:

(The URL works if you delete everything after the final slash.)

Re: An Actor's Nightmare (TRS-80 CoCo)

The menu item for loading disk-images and tape-images just causes the emulator to freeze. You are not the only one to experience this problem, see if pressing command-F twice fixes the problem (taken from the thread http://archive.worldofdragon.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=5464&p=14608#p14608 - "...

Re: An Actor's Nightmare (TRS-80 CoCo)

there are Mac builds for XRoar - http://www.6809.org.uk/xroar/ - they may not be the very latest version but they should do the job (or if you are up to it, you could try compiling a Mac build from the latest source code). I eventually got some sort of XRoar installation working on my Mac. My versi...

Re: An Actor's Nightmare (TRS-80 CoCo)

Thanks for the info, Alastair. I may well try one of the emulators you mention because although I have now got Windows VCC working under CrossOver Mac (which is essentially a wrapper for WINE), it does make the laptop run a little hot, for some reason! But at least I found out what the intro tune to...

I've created a cassette image from the ACTOR.TAP file on the disk Excellent! Thank you. You can run it from disk if you shorten the program.

An Actor's Nightmare (TRS-80 CoCo)

Hi, all. The Third Rainbow Book Of Adventures for the Tandy Color Computer 1, 2 and 3 was mentioned on the Classic Text Adventures group on Facebook the other day, and I was wondering if anyone could help me get the tape version of the game An Actor's Nightmare to work in an emulator? The program is...

I have thought of it, but spamming the FB group might turn a lot of people off.
The news posts that appear on the CASA homepage and in the Planet IF blog aggregator feed are very infrequent and would be welcome on Facebook, I think.
