Thanks, Andy!

If ever there is a post of yours you'd think I should like, and I don't mark it as such, just presume I read it using the mobile version LOL.

In Topic: Finding a Jet Swt Willy game using a room name

18 July 2018 - 03:39 AM

;)  B)

Is there a database of room names used though out all the different Jet Set Willy games?


So, say if I wanted to identify a Jet Set Willy game from the name of a room, could I do it?


There is no such database TTBOMK.


For quite a while now I've been thinking of creating one and hosting it on JSW Central. I hope I will be able to do it one day, but it's a rather distant future, at the moment, as my spare time is very short and will probably remain so in the next couple of years. There are also the individual pages for all games to do first.


However, I will get there one day, hopefully. I launched JSW Central some ten years after first mentioning the idea, so there  B) .


Now, your discovery of new (or perhaps forgotten, is it?) JSW games is really thrilling :). Congratulations on it, and the obvious question arises: When will we be able to download these games from TZX Vault?


Oh, I can see there was an update in April this year, and "There is some more good news in the pipeline hopefully". I'm looking forward to it!  :D

In Topic: Pokes (non ZX versions)

Thanks for this, Andy! :)


That's Andy Noble's DOS version, isn't it?

In Topic: Information for a book needed!

Thanks for visiting this forum, MathUseMyth! :) 


And thanks for your answers and the link to JSW Central, Andy the Spider! :)


I would just add that, according to this Wikipedia article, apparently the Software Projects initially "attempted to pass this bug off as an intentional feature to make the game more difficult" (a source reference is here) and then "rescinded this claim and issued a set of POKEs to correct the flaws" (two source references: here and here). The referenced article in Personal Computer Games states that "the good news is that Software Projects have just released details of how to correct both this bug and the famous bug sparked by entering the Attic". So it looks like there must have been some kind of release from SP, though I don't recall seeing the text of that release (on the internet; I wouldn't have had a chance to see it "live" back in the 1980s).

In Topic: Some Manic Miner Remake

Yes, and I've grabbed it. Thanks for making Ligan aware of the problem in the first place, and for making sure I've got the right version :).
