INFO - Location of .MMB (master file download)

Mensajepor Higgy » 03 Mar 2017, 13:17

Hi,

Working with stardot.org.uk who seem to be one of the biggest Acorn computer websites, there is now a storage location for the BBC .MMB file.

This is hoped to be the 'master' file, which people will go to for updates. - http://stardot.org.uk/files/mmb/higgy_mmbeeb-v1.0.zip

Changelog to original 'Internet BEEB.MMB':

v1.0

Added: Bad Apple Demo ( BitShifters - https://bitshifters.github.io/posts/pro ... apple.html )
Added: Beeb Tracker Vol 1. , Vol 2. & Vol 3. ( BitShifters - https://bitshifters.github.io/prods.html )
Fixed: Castle Quest (now uses single disk version instead of compilation version originally used)
Added: Castle Quest Cheat (this version has option to add extra lives)
Added: The Darkness of Raven Wood (Rucksack Games - http://johnblythe5.wixsite.com/rucksackgames )

If there are any game/demo suggestions then ask and I will see about adding them to the .MMB Menu

You need to check out the 'Bad Apple' demo :maestro:

@Higgy: Great initiative!! Having all the updates tracked and included in an "official" mmb was a very much needed thing :)
Thanks!!

@Higgy: URIDIUM on the BEEB.MMB file is a broken version (has suspended notes if you let the music play before starting a game).
It should be swapped with this version, please:

Could you do it? Thanks!!

Thanks for the note. I will put it on my job list. Thanks for linking to a working version that helps a lot.
I need to take a day off work and sort out a load of computer and console stuff!

Hi,

I had a few minutes to do a brief test. I tried loading the game but there is graphical glitches at the top of the screen? Is this still ok?

I have just been testing on a VGA monitor so I don't have sound, so I can't test at the moment the music issue.

Hi, Higgy!

You need to update the BBC Micro core to the latest version, that way you should have no graphics ussue. Please try and tell me how it works for you.

Ah! I missed that a new Core appeared!

The current Uridium is stored on a multi disk compilation. If I swap the disk image other games will break. So I need to change the file linking just for Uridium in the menu (and change menu text to next version).

Now, how did I do it last time :)

Sorry for the long delay. I have now updated to v1.3 Core and added Uridium.

I have been testing 'White Light' an amazing new BBC game. But there seems to be issues, it hangs when you lose all your lives. This happens on Core v1.2 & v1.3 we may need v1.4!! - http://bbcmicro.co.uk//jsbeeb/play.php? ... ro-DFS.ssd

I need to see if I can include White Light, then I will upload a new .MMB

@Higgy: I see you have already told Hoglet about the problems with White Light, so that's goingo to be cleared soon :)
Awaiting the new MMB!!


Volver a “BBC Micro”
