Bristles graphic corruption..

Tue Apr 7, 2015 2:30 AM

Did a search but saw nothing..


While doing my game checks for the gamepack I play tested Bristles and every version including the roms produce graphic corruption after finishing the first round, tried it on Altirra and Win Plus....Same..


Tried the 3 possible OS's and variations in memory..



Looking for a program like Styles Dirmaster on the C64..

I'll explain..


I have loads of disks that are simply odd numbers etc, simply looking at each one in turn is long winded, what styles program does in look at the disk index and it creates a screen dump of the files on the disk named after the disk its checked, now you can batch process huge numbers of disks and you get a visual index of what is on all those disks.


You can then see if its simply a randam data disk or there's invidual things you could strip off and maybe find the odd rarity.


On the Atari because there's sector loading stuff obviously not all disc will make and sense of a graphical index type dump and you also have the hassle of custom DOS's which make listing disk contents hit and miss.


Has anyone ever done a program of this sort that will batch process disks and provide either a file directory listing or a picture?


Just trying to organise my collection of unknowns a tad easier..

Lovely little C64 game that I'm sure could be ported no trouble (not by me)

Its a take on Boulderdash as you can see with a nice puzzle element added..




Did anyone work out what argsos.bin was?

If you boot it up with SELECT held down you get rom disc



Game additions to the Best Gamebase

Sat Sep 6, 2014 8:49 AM

We have had some suggestions for games to add to the GB which are last years ABBC contest  entries etc so I thought I best if their authors mind us putting them on the DB, the list are on the last two pages of the Best Gamebase sticky thread.


There AFAIK are NO current purchase only games on there and that is how it will stay if Starwindz does not mind, if an author or copyright owner has an issue re a game then please let me or Starwindz know.
