So , well, after converting a bunch of adventures from "foreign" basic dialects to CPC, I run out of stuff/listings. Do you have pure basic games/listings you want to see running on the cpc ? well, not from big computers like amiga or so :) ... just put the link/source here, me or someone else could convert it to our nice machine then.

By coincidence I was looking at a game for the BBC BASIC the other day. It's not an adventure game though and it has a lot of graphical commands in it too. There is also some DATA in it, though it appears to be Musical DATA. I thought perhaps it might be a good game to test with BBC BASIC for CPC, though you'll have to run it through CP/M, it works in either CP/M 2.2 or CP/M Plus, though I found it much easier to use with CP/M Plus (only because I was doing a lot of DSK image switching with CP/M 2.2 and became somewhat annoyed with the process). So from what I csn tell it's probably only the Graphical Coordinate stuff which only needs changing:

* Using some of the hardly used Amstrad compilers :D
* I use Firmware in my Assembly code :P
* Have interpreted some BASIC 1.1 programs for BASIC 1.0. :)

Are all of the BASIC Computer Games type-ins published for the Amstrad CPC? They're kind of simple, but should almost all run with little or no modification.
I was glad to see someone had ported an early version of Oregon Trail.
