TBI POOL UPDATE
The TBI pool has seen a lot of changes in the last few months, especially
thanks to the huge quantities of excellent software which members have very
kindly sent in. Please have a look through this revised list as there may be
something that you would find of interest!
Note that to order TBI software you must:
(i) Enclose enough extra formatted disks for the software you want
(ii) Enclose an ADDITIONAL 10p for each disk you want copied
(iii) Send enough return P&P to get the whole lot back to you.
N.B.: if an item is listed as "DFS 80T SS" and you are using an 80T DS
drive, you can order another DFS 80T SS item on the other side of the same
disk, i.e. get TWO items for just one disk and 10p.
Unless you send a SECOND set of postage and packing, as well as the disk and
P&P for the next issue, to return your TBI order in, I will send it whenever
the next issue disk is completed.
Please note that very little of the software listed here is available from
Chris Richardson with issue 23; you will have to order it along with issue
24 which I will be editing.
THE CHRIS RICHARDSON SECTION
All these disks are DFS 80T DS.
CJR-01 Loads of cheats, utilities etc.
CJR-02 Loads of cheats, utilities etc.
CJR-03 STD code database system.
CJR-04 Samples disk 1
CJR-05 Samples disk 2
CJR-06 Samples disk 3 - Monty Python, StarTrek, Dire Straits
CJR-07 Samples disk 4 - Spitting Image, James, Madness, etc.
CJR-08 Samples disk 5 - Thunderbirds complete + controlled samples
Samples disks 1 & 2 contain TYB samples played in different ways by Chris'
own programs, and also Mix-Ed 1, which helps you to construct your own
mixes. Samples disks 3 & 4 contain Chris' own quite long samples, and Mix-Ed
2, which is incompatible with the earlier version. Samples disk 5 contains
very impressive routines which put a selection of small samples under direct
control of the keyboard.
Chris will be publishing in issue 23 everything he has written which is not
either listed here or published previously.
8BS BACK ISSUES
Issues 14, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21 are available as back issues. All of
them require one DFS 80T DS disk + 10p + return postage and packing. The
exception is issue 16, which requires two disks + 10p + P&P, although you
can order any other DFS 80T SS item to go on the reverse side of the second
Issues 20 and 21 are also available in ADFS L format if required.

TYB-05 Mixmania II Vol.1
TYB-06 Mixmania II Vol.2
TYB-07 Retribution Demo Demo
All these disks require DFS 80T DS and will not run on any other format. See
issue 20 for further details. If you are easily offended then DO NOT order
TYB-01, TYB-05, or TYB-06. I would like to hear from anyone who has any more
Yorkshire Boys productions, or who can throw any more light on the question
of hardware requirements for each disk.
THE CATALOGUE DISK
This idea has been temporarily abandoned because very few libraries have
sent me recent catalogues. See BBC PD section for BBC PD catalogue.

THE XBI SECTION
These disks are only available to members who can read ADFS L disks. It is a
way of getting a very large amount of PD software for a very small amount of
The details of the disks from BBC PD, indicated by their catalogue numbers
below, will be found in the BBC PD catalogue, included with issue 20 - I
suggest you look through it and work out what you want (or just order
everything; it doesn't cost that much!)
XBI-01 Mad Rabbit PD's MR-17 - Big Disk of BASIC Music
-about 110 tunes, well over 600K of music
XBI-02 NOT YET AVAILABLE - will hopefully be MR-18, another 110 tunes
XBI-03 Massive US shareware C tutorial (BBC PD 48) + X-TEL, a MODE 7
system (screen designer etc.) originally from Red Shift PD
XBI-04 BBC PD 70, 92, 107
XBI-05 BBC PD 7, 39, 94
XBI-06 BBC PD 12, 83
XBI-07 BBC PD 38, 71, 105
XBI-08 BBC PD 49, 96
XBI-09 BBC PD 108, 109
XBI-10 BBC PD 29, 47, 62, 101
XBI-11 BBC PD 2, 33, 106
XBI-12 BBC PD 18, 54, 110
XBI-13 BBC PD Catalogue & Sampler Disk + BBC PD 55
(C&S disk currently very out of date - my fault)
If you order any of XBI-04 to XBI-13, you will have to use DIRCOPY or any
other similar program to copy each BBC PD catalogue item from its separate
directory on the disk into the $ directory of another ADFS disk in order to
use the BBC PD menus. For example, the $ directory of XBI-08 contains two
directories, $.49 and $.96. $.49 contains everything from BBC PD disk 49 and
$.96 contains everything from BBC PD disk 96.
An option with some of the XBI PD disks is to use Hugh William's DIRlock
utility (see issue 21) as an alternative to copying the disks onto more
blanks to run them.
