Good afternoon from PCWWiki, we leave you with a very entertaining card game and something similar to solitaire. Instructions are in the game itself. It was written by Par Kamal in 1989 under Mallard Basic. Hope you enjoy it

Good morning from PCWWiki. Today for fans of Mallard Basic games, we leave you this time with a fabulous game called "LABYRINTHE INFERNAL". It was programmed by Christian Nesen in 1988. It is about a labyrinth, where we will find dragons, dungeons, treasures, magic potions, hidden stairs, etc. It is a complicated game that we will start on the right side of the screen to finish on the left side of the screen and emerge victorious from this maze nightmare with or without coins, dead or alive. It's up to you to reach the end and have your best victory out. I hope you enjoy it.

Quote from: cj7hawk on 17:40, 11 June 22Thanks for that - Your archive is amazing. :)

Is there any reason that the games stop at "I"?

I always assumed you were still in the process of updating, but I noticed that this hasn't changed in a long time, and you've updated elsewhere, so wondered if it might be a bug?

Thanks
David
Ok, I know what happens.

Jevicac divided the list into fully preserved and scanned and incompletely preserved and scanned, but the full list is only in the spanish translation of the page: https://habisoft.com/pcwwiki/doku.php?id=es:juegos:indice

Check that one.

The Spanish translation also seems to be stuck at I now :( I went back to have a look and nothing after I shows up for me any longer - Is there another page that has the full list?

Thanks
David

Quote from: robcfg on 21:21, 17 July 22Are you checking this one? http://www.habisoft.com/pcwwiki/doku.php?id=es:juegos:indice
Yep, that one used to show the links after I buy no longer does... Is it just the one I'm seeing? Do you see valid links after the I section?

robcfg

Just one, Supernova Invaders  ;D

You'll notice that some (or a lot) of the games have red links, but are marked as preserved. That's because we have them dumped, but still haven't got the time to scan the inlays, disks, manuals, etc, and create the wiki pages.

So, they'll be available eventually.

Good evening, from PCWWiki, we open a new section called "Courses". So we leave you with a Mallard Basic course in Spanish to start this new section. Cheers

PS: The cover has been PCWWiki design and modification of course. These were photocopied, stained, crooked and two pages per side.

Good morning from PCWWiki. Today we leave you for both PCW and CPC the word processor "Pocket WordStar v3.05" from the English company MicroPro. This dates back to 1986 and was the rival to New Star's word processor. We hope you enjoy it.

btw: Wordstar 4 is out, it supports ZCPR / Z3Plus environments, named directories and text attributes (underlined, italics ... ... ...). There is a version for the CPC, but changing the TCP will enable it for PcW too. There should be a WS4 vor PcW out there. I just don't have it here.

edit. tcp is the terminal descriptor for the Z systems under CP/M.
http://futureos.de --> Get the revolutionary FutureOS (Update: 2022.03.09)

I scanned a book for the PCW that doesn't seem to be listed on the PCWWiki in the books list (or I didn't find it at least), "DMV-Verlag - JOYCE - Mehr als ein Textsystem".
Here's the link to get it if you want to add it : https://acpc.me/ACME/AMSTRAD_PRO/AMSTRAD_PCW/LITTERATURE_LIVRES/[GER]GERMAN/JOYCE_mehr_als_ein_Textsystem(acme).pdf

It seems a previous pdf existed of that book already on the web, but lower quality :)

Regarding the note just above re WordStar, I do use WS from time to time on my PCW, mainly when I need to edit a large text file (say a disassembly file).   I still find this helpful, and this is also a little more practical with the uIDE system.

I use WS 3.3, this is installed with the PCW screen codes etc.  I don't normally bother to print anything.

I'd never used v 4.0, not sure if this has much that 3.3 does not (important, that is).

I've downloaded a copy of 4 - should have a look at it, and sort out the installation.

Hello Kailokyra, thank you very much for the link. Actually, we don't have that book. Inform that all the books we have in various languages will be scanned again and uploaded to the web. We try to upload everything in higher quality, but the time is short and the material is quite a lot. Cheers

Here's another one "Franzis' - Den Joyce Programmieren". 
It was listed under "LIBROS PENDIENTES DE PRESERVACIÓN" but marked as "No Preservado". Less work for you then  ;D

Hello. From PCWWiki we leave you with an extraordinary game for the Amstrad PCW's. This is "MINDFIGHTER" a graphic-conversational game from the British company Abstract Concepts, programmed by Fergus McNeill in 1988.

The game is based on life in Southampton after a nuclear holocaust. The player takes on the role of a young man who, if he manages to finish the game, becomes the savior of civilization as we know it. Anna Popkess's 150-page book is included. We hope you enjoy it.
