Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Got a bit stuck again. Alone on the spaceship.
I've put the relay in place and have the transmitter but still can't figure out how to operate the teleporter.

*EDIT* People, use the font size to make things tiny, think of other players, thanks

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

It is incredible how something that went totally undetected by at least 5 play testers and me (who played all the game through several times), can come up so often to players once the game is released. I hope you are enjoying the game, the puzzles, the dialogues, the graphics and animations, and th...

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

Perhaps wait and see if anything else turns up.

I found where to use the cans and used them twice so it got rid of them both. I'd also managed to pick up pliers again so had two, but that corrected itself when in a new place.

I'm now on a planet !

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I'm on to Episode 2 :)
After learning of the bug I accidentally pressed 2 instead of 3 so now have two spray cans. Is there any way round this or should I start again?

Re: Blake's 7 feedback and review thread

I'm stuck also. Tried every option with the technician, but he sends me away.

There are not many options left for things to try. Is there an object I should be carrying?

I'm hoping to find a large mallet so I can sort out that technician and the freaky nurse.

Re: Question regarding floppies

I've got two 5.25 but hardly ever used them. I can't recall if they are double sided.

I'm not sure if the original Oric Microdisc was single or double sided, but I think later ones were double.

Re: Question regarding floppies

I think I have double sided 3" but I prefer to use 3.5".

3" disks are hard to find now or are a bit expensive.

If you have single sided drives isn't it possible to put the main program on A and then any further levels etc on side B ?

Re: Sedoric 4.0

That's what I was thinking. It makes it a bit less useful with all the different keyboard layout files hidden away in different directories so you can't load any of them up with INIST.

I guess I'll need to learn how to use it.

Re: Full Telestrat in Ebay

It does make me wonder how much a boxed Microdisc PSU would be worth. I've not seen them for sale and I don't see a boxed PSU in that collection either. Sadly I don't have a boxed Microdisc to go with it.

Re: Full Telestrat in Ebay

I bet the condition of the box will attract other computer collectors - not just Oric users. This one may end up on a shelf somewhere, which is a shame.


I did think about bidding but I can't even get the Telestrat to work on. Oricutron.

Re: Sedoric 4.0

What I'm struggling with is how to load something from a folder/directory from the main one. Is that possible? You might want to load at bootup, or have a HIRES screen loader that loads from files stored in the subdirectory. Can that be done.
