Help: BLOC BUSTER (Micro User June 1991)
Text: I have a question about part of the listing for the BLOC BUSTER
game which appeared in the June edition of the Micro User. The
user defined characters were defined using 4 digit hex numbers
eg. VDU23,248,&FAFE;&EEF6;&BEDE;&FEFE. Can anybody explain the
coding involved in defining these characters in this format?

Help: Gisburns Castle
Text: Has anyone out there got a copy of this program? I used to have
the old cassette version, but it was so unreliable and took so
long to load that I ditched it. I used to enjoy it, but as I
couldn't convert it I am not at a loss.
Help: BBC Scanners
Text: Does anyone out there own a Scanner? - NOT an image scanner but
a receiver that they use either for tracking satellites or
listening to the airband/amateur frequencies. I have an AOR AR
1000 Wide Range monitor and understand that there is software
available for the BBC which enables it's connection to the User
Port thus enabling satellite images to be displayed on screen.
Also, has anyone have access to a Morse Decoder program that
will turn morse code tones into text on the screen? Please
contact me through my 8BS mailbox should anyone be able to help.
Help: Error Messages
