Stacks on the disc this month and even more next month. If you have any programs either completed or in development then please consider sending it here to 8-bit Software. I think I am correct in saying that we are the only library that offers the valuable comments from Programmers Return that are enjoyed by existing 8-bit Programmers. Please do not hesitate to drop me a line if you need more information. The address is= 8-bit Software <SOFTWARE SUBMISSIONS> 7 Ashdale Thringstone Coalville Leicestershire LE6 4LW *
Be sure that your envelope is clearly marked "Software Submissions" so that I can reply without delay. Software is as important as anything else, and without it there wouldn't be an 8-bit Software. We'll publish almost anythingno matter how big or small, or how obscure the subject may be. NOTE FOR MASTER OWNERS=
All of 8-bit's software is tested on a
BBC-B and not a Master, therefore some
programs may not work due to machine
differences. If a program doesn't work
on your Master, then try to modify it
and send the results to us so other
Master owners can benefit. Some of the
programs have already been converted *
and the results will be published next
ON THE DISC= Graphical Animations-
Includes the stunning Star Wars fly-by
(needs SWR). The best results can be
obtained on mono monitors.
Adventure Hints I+II-

adventure game hints and tips. Follow
on-screen options to read them. If you
have any other hints or tips then send
them into us, and mark your envelope
Repton 3 Screens-
Some totally new screens for you to
tackle. A competition is currently
being organised so it is certainly
worthwile getting some practice in. To
play, load Repton 3 and load the screens
in file R.TROG. The competition will be
announced next month.
A "pixel" graphics routine. Watch the
screen as the triangles develop- more
and more of them.

and beyond. Keys-Z,X and RETURN.
Another excellent program from A.Shakoor

Can you do a better job at managing
Ok, so it's an oldie, but it's a goldie.
Probably the best piece of music for
the enexpanded Model B. An AMPLE version
is also on the disc. Enter AMPLE and
enter "A.COLDTEA"LOAD RUN.
Screen Transfer Utility-
One for programmers. A quick and simple
tutorial on how to store two screens in
memory at the same time, and switch
between the two.
Another one from Andy Nibbs. It only
took him about 2 minutes to write. Best
viewed in the dark on a mono monitor
about 3 metres away.
One for the A-Level Maths Students. A
friend of mine is doing A-Levels and has
found the program very useful, so it's
on this issue as the exams can't be that
far away!! *
Graphical Gears/Space Planets Animation
Two animations off the TAS disc on the
TBI software pool(send in a 40 or 80
track disc for the full disc). Takes a
while to draw, so be patient.
See seperate article in the magazine.
Extra Printer Command-
Assembles a routine and adds a new *
command- *PRINTER or *PRINT. Not sure
what it does as the instructions were a
bit vague. Can anybody help?

Lumberjack and I'm Okay...).
Gisburnes Castle Cheat-
Another cheat from C.J.Richardson's new
disc. Just follow the instructions.

wants a copy then drop me a line.
