Hello,

For information, I have a copy of Head Coach v3, except it's not a pukka version.

The reason for this - I was actually involved in the conversion of this game from the BBC original to the PCW, I extracted the BASIC code from a BBC disk and did the initial conversion to Mallard BASIC, Colin Adams then did the rest of the work, and I think I did some playtesting of the final version.   So I have the prog/data files for the finished product, but never on a 3" disk, but I could put it onto a 3" disk if needed.   I do however have a proper final manual/play book, which is in mint condition.

I'd guess that you'd rather 'archive' a proper version?

Geoff

Good morning, today we bring you from the PCWWiki for the PCW`s this classic game from the English company Supernova Software called "Classic Invaders" the classic Martian killer. This simple game was a success in all arcades of the time and that later reached our computers. We hope you enjoy it.

Good afternoon, in the disk units section, we have added the diagram of the EME-156 unit. This is mounted on the spectrum + 3 but it is valid for CPC and PCW also as a 180K unit. I have seen the manual in very low quality on the net and another where they have tried to redo it, but it contains many errors, especially in the values of the electronic components.

Hello,

That's great.   I see you've got the same Head Coach manual/package that I've got.

As I said before, the (maybe) big problem is that I'm not sure that the files that I've got are complete, or if they are complete, that they're in the original condition.   When your copy is available, I'll get the file to compare everything.

Geoff

Hello again. As soon as I have some time I will make a copy of the original game and upload it to the PCWWiki. We will notify you in the forum and you can already have the original and check if yours is correct. Greetings
