Wanted / Re: Drelbs

Thanks Paul that is perfect.

Given the weather this weekend I thought I'd try a bit of games programming again. I only want to do a little project so tried to think of a good 8-bit game which hasn't already been done and Drelbs seemed to fit the bill.

Funny thing is, when I look at it now it's just a two screen game, the grid screen and the bonus screen. It also seems quite hard and repetative. Rose tinted glasses (or eyeballs in this case). I do think it was very well programmed though.

I am sure something more can be done with the concept of rotating the gates and forming blocks but I am not sure what exactly. My plan is to get basic Drelbs going and then I'll decide if I want to do something more with it.

Progress so far:

You'll need to click on the screen to activate it and then use the arrow keys to wander around.

Does anyone have a boxed Drelbs? A scan of the cover and instructions would be much appreciated if you do.

This is the first time I've been on this forum and perhaps it's too late...  but which leaflets are you still looking for now?  I found a bunch of later leaflets just at the weekend and I'd rather them go to a good home than to dump them!

Are you looking for the Page 6 accessory Shop "XL/XE Update and Order Forms"?  Or the Page 6 XL/XE Library Updates?  I have both for many issues from issue 56 onwards.  Let me know!

It may be easiest to email me directly but to here is fine too.
General Page 6 Discussion / Atari 1050 Hard Drive Repair
« Last post by Osh on February 15, 2010, 12:47:25 PM »
Hello I have an Atari 1050 Hard drive that does not work anymore, due to Goons that had access to my property, and need to put my 1050 hard drive out of action, as well as a few other things.

Does anybody out there know some one that could do a repair of my 1050 drive. It is not totally ragged, I mean the power L.E.D. still comes on, I have tested the two motors in the drive with a nine volt battery and the motors still go.

A second problem that has occured to me is that some one could of ERASED the EPROM of the US Doubler chip I had installed, making
the drive non functional.

I could test all the the circuit board components but its no use if the drive bios is not there.
I still have the two chips that was removed, to install the US Doubler that are pictured here  but I can only see where one of these

goes, the other is guesswork.

So if there is anybody out there that knows there way around a 1050 Disk Drive, or to repair let me know.

We have recently added a few issues of the FASTER Disk Magazine to the ST Library section.
Does anyone have copies of the remaining issues?

Hi Gary,

Glad to see you are still with us. Long time since we chatted and a long time since we started for Les. page 6 was still in single figure issues at the time!


The Page 6 PD Library / Re: What's with the leech detection?
« Last post by prixon on December 08, 2008, 03:07:17 PM »
Hi Garry

I also use Firefox and it seems to download the ST disks OK - sure you don't have some kind of additional download manager working in the background? The leech screen should only kick in if the links are accessed indirectly (i.e. from another site) or someone tries to do an automated mass download, so your experience seems a bit strange.


p.s. next issue will be online soon :)
