Jon Radoff's BBS correspondence

Recommended Posts

Something quick that you might enjoy: 

 

Jon Radoff, creator of the Atari ST BBS games Space Empire Elite and Final Frontier, recently shared a small cache of old correspondence related to his games. He was a teen when he developed those games, and his mom had saved these artifacts in a scrapbook.

Just read the 3 letters. Interesting.

 

We've got Final Frontier II on DarkForce. Played it a lot when I first 

installed it, thought it was one of the better online games at the time.

I wish I could find a copy of one of the original Radoff/Lambe "Final Frontier" releases.

 

I have two of Jeff Bath's modified releases. I also have a partial source code listing for Bath's FF 1.46 (saved this myself when I was a teen, but the file is corrupted in several places).

I can't remember if we used the original here before FF2 or not...

 

Give me a couple of days, I'll go through my backups (which go back

literally to the 90's) and I'll see if I have anything. This will take a

while though... 

 

It's a long shot, I think I actually started with FF2 but you never know.

Okay, found something. I hope it's not something that was hijacked and renamed but

here it is. It's labeled as versions 1.0 and 1.53. Look them over and see if they are

accurate and complete. HTHs.
