File Name: La Casa Di Jack

File Submitter: Spider

File Submitted: 27 Aug 2017

File Category: Jet Set Willy [Patched]

System: Sinclair
Original Author(s): Matthew Smith
Third Party Author(s): Juancho Martizen Cubero


This is a very slightly modified version of JSW with full Spanish text translation throughout, by Juancho Martizen Cubero.


A built in infinite lives choice is offered upon each game start too. The keypad has been bypassed and a different title screen, still in the JSW style is displayed.


Unfortunately it still has the original "4 bugs" present, although these are easily fixed if required using the standard methods. It is interesting to note that the author has taken the time and trouble to 'rename' Entrance to Hades too as well as all the other instances of wording throughout.


The scrolling message reads as follows:

LA CASA DE JACK .. LOAD 'N' RUN .. Guia a Jack por cada habitacion de su casa para que pueda recoger todos los objetos antes de medianoche y su mujer lo deje ir a dormir..*********... Pulsa ENTER para jugar ***


The original supplied file was only ever available as a .z80 snapshot, there was enough data present in this to reconstruct most of the Basic however the loading routine appeared to use screen memory, possibly for data compression, as this was no longer present said data could not be used but the loading screen is about as near as can be imagined for the original release.


The snapshot also suffers slightly from not being JSWED friendly too, this is caused by the AIR bytes being set to chr$32 (a space) A tape file was constructed with the resurrected loader (modified to work with a standard tape file) and made to be editor friendly by replacing the AIR bytes. It is recommended you use this one to perform any edits if required.


The original 'as is' .z80 snapshot is supplied, along with a more friendly .tap file.
