The elusive Jet Set Willy II remake for PC

03 October 2018 - 06:41 AM

Hey everyone,

 

This might seem like a dumb question, but does anyone out there have the Jet Set Willy II remake for the PC? It's the one that's done in the same style as Andy Noble's remake of the original JSW, but I don't think he did it. It came with a room editor. I had it a few years ago, but somehow lost it.

 

I'd really like to play it again. After having beaten the Spectrum version (got to be the hardest game I've ever beaten), I'd like to try my hand at the PC remake.

 

Thanks


Information for a book needed!

Hello, good people of the Spectruming world!

 

I was referred to you by a good chap named Daren at the RZX Archives. I need some help!

 

I am writing a novel set in the 1980s, which revolves heavily around some kids who play computer games. A pivotal point of the story as a whole involves Jet Set Willy. The way I write it depends upon how you answer my questions. Here goes.

 

Did Software Projects ever release a bug-free version of Jet Set Willy, or did one have to use the 1984 release with Holman and Else's POKEs in order to complete the game?

 

If Software Projects did re-release it, when did that happen?

 

If the Holman/Else POKEs had to be used on the original, when and where were they printed for players it input?

 

Dumb question: How does one input a POKE on a Spectrum? (It's easy enough on an emulator, but I've no idea how to do it on an actual Speccy.)

 

Looking forward to your response! All being well, you'll be mentioned in the acknowledgements when the book is completed!
