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...

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

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. Here's what it says in the book: "Due to memory limitations, the program will not run with the disk controller plugged in unless the graphics title and ending...

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.

I've got a BASIC listing and a scan of the magazine article. I'll check it during the weekend and get back to you...unless someone else beats me to it.
Thanks, Garry. Could you please check the listing against the version that's on bbcmicro.co.uk?:

Re: The Curse of Crowley Manor in BASIC

Is that the one by Jyym Pearson? I originally played that on the Atari 8-bit. A little while back, I ported it to Inform and vastly expanded it. I compiled it for Glulx, complete with graphics from the Apple II version, but with most images modified a bit. I haven't released it, as it's not quite f...

For individual puzzles, the most memorable for me is the tea remover (or T-remover?) in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, where using it turned the rabbit into a rabbi.
<loathsome_pedantry> I believe the T-remover was actually in Leather Goddesses Of Phobos. </loathsome_pedantry>
