Thanks for letting me know about the problems with the listed games. I will try to sort them out some time soon.


for problems with tape games, turn off fast tape loading. This fixed issues with Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy

Some Electron games dont run on a BBC, so switch the emulator to ElectrcEmu using the manage emulators option in the gemus menu. Also select emulate disk drive for Haven disks to work.

Hi Hardmanm,

I've not visited in a while but your as prolific as ever :D . Some really excellent work.

Just a question, Why have you decided to merge the BBC & Electron Gamebases into Acornmania ?

Also are the previous Gamebases out of date ? (IE The Acornmania Gamebase has more games, more working games etc).

The reason i decide to create a joint BBC and Electron gamebase is that there are a lot of games that work on both machines, and i thought it would be good to share information on both systems. I havn't done any updates on it due to other gamebases, i might next year. I having a break for a bit, due to spending 18 months solid doing gamebases and not much else.

I have just found out that UG had deletd my latest gamebases for breaching rules. If someone who downloaded it before it got removed wants to put it on rapidshare etc for me. I find it hard to believe that i got reported just for including the emulators by someone. It puts me off uploading there in the future.
