If you own a Mac, look here for info on my native BeebEm port to the Mac (current version 3.3a 09/02/08)
I have recently renewed my nostalgic interest in all things Acorn and have spent the last few months rummaging
through all my old discs and tapes of software,
transferring everything to my PC. You may have noticed that I modified the XFER serial transfer software recently
to add support for ADFS disc formats and also modified the bbctape software to easily create DFS disc images of my old tapes
in real time.
Now I have all these disc images on my PC, I don't have a clue what is on them !
To aid my failing memory, I have written two programs to allow me to explore my
ADFS and DFS disc images, view files and copy files
to and from my PC's hard disc. ADFS Explorer has
recently been updated to allow you to explore IDE and SCSI hard disc images in
conjunction with the BeebEm emulator program. Both these programs are available
in Windows or Mac format.
After reviewing all my old disc images, I will be making
some available for download. I have started by making available my
collection of Telesoftware which was downloaded from CeeFax from Oct 87
to Aug 89.
You can browse the collection and download
anything of interest here.
If you have some old 5.25" BBC discs but don't have the hardware,
software or serial cables required to convert them into emulator disc
images, why not let me do it for you
I have also recently acquired a Risc PC off eBay.
Many years ago I wrote several programs for, my then, Archimedes 440.
After seeing if they still work on the new Risc PC, I will be making some
available for download. You can take a look at my first offerings
