Re: The Orion Quest c64

This is different to the other two files on 8bitfiles and it shows the recorder in the first location, so, on the surface, it looks like a good file.

Re: The Orion Quest c64

Received. Thanks. I can see the recorder on the first screen.

You were right, though. It sure does take a long time to load.

Re: The Orion Quest c64

Gotcha. In that case, I wouldn't mind a copy too. It's got me a bit intrigued.

Re: The Orion Quest c64

I did some poking around on 8bitfiles and both copies that I found were bad. They were both disk images. Are you saying there's a tape image?

Re: Gilsoft PAW/Quill

My word-processor was constantly trying to change flagno to flagon. :) I was bound to miss one.


If you're using Microsoft Word, turn off anything that says "auto" or "smart", as "auto" means it will automatically screw up your document and "smart" means it's dumb.

Re: Castle Blackstar - Getting past the dragon

I haven't played the game myself, but having read your description, it actually sounds like a well-crafted puzzle, providing the appropriate in-game hints and responses are there. For example, when killing the dragon with the sword, if it says something like "the dragon thrashes about and falls dead...

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

The full English translation is now complete! Same link (above). Looks good. Just one trap for the unwary. When you copy and paste the BASIC listing into BeebEm, it looks like there's a limit on how much you can paste. Do a LIST after the paste. If the last line listed is not the last line of the p...

Re: Rainbow Adventure / Jorge Mir

You won't find it listed for the TRS-80, because it's a CoCo game. ( The Rainbow was a CoCo magazine.) It probably runs on a TRS-80, as their BASICs are almost identical, except for the addition of graphics and sound commands on the CoCo. I haven't tried it and I don't know which TRS-80 model it wou...

Re: There are sufficient new games in the queue...

Great work guys. There's easily 10,000 games out there. All we need is the time and energy to get them all entered...and get all 10,000 with maps, solutions and screen grabs!

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 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 Engli...

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

SoftSide adventures sent. 'Curse of the Sasquatch' is a machine language game for the TRS-80. I haven't heard of 'Search for the Sasquatch', so I can't help with that one. The only Greg Hassett game that I've come across for the Apple II is 'Journey to the Center of the Earth', but this may have bee...

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

Most of these games are not able to downloaded to play in either Applewin or an Atari emulator (nor TRS-80). . . . If you have those Softside games, why don't you try to get them imaged. And if they already are, can they be downloaded? I searched for them, but to no avail. I was talking about emula...

Re: Lost Apple II commercial text adventure game

From my perspective, the Softside disk adventures are the only other remaining Apple II text adventures still MIA (not available on other computer platforms). This is possibly a little off-topic, but if you are referring to the SoftSide Adventure of the Month series, these are all available. I've c...

Re: Primal Adventure... 1980?

I had this as being published by Karel Software, but no publication date. Not sure where I got the info, though.
