@Nich: I've typed in several AA listings so far. Maybe you can upload them to the wiki. It seems you're familiar with wiki/html coding.

The reason for typing in "backwards" is simple: Some were faulty and bugfixes were released in later issues.

Great job with the splitting - it was indeed way too long!!!

Btw, what's the super-category of AA Type-ins?
Type Ins. I feel that it should be Type-Ins, with a hyphen, but renaming a category will probably cause all sorts of chaos!

I have now added the type-ins for issues 102-105 to CPCWiki. I'll look at issues 106-108 some other time (of course, it has nothing to do with reminding me how embarrassing some of my own type-ins are! :D)

I've typed out Madballs (not to be confused with the French game "Madball" which is on NVG), which is a pretty comphenensive game from AA63 (December 1990) and checked through it (via Pat McDonald's ROM dodgy "Typewriter"  ;D ). Just thought I'd attach it here for the moment so nobody goes through the strain of having to Type it out again. I reckon it could even go into the Type-ins section in the Games Directory in NVG.

I just typed in the Sound Digitizer from AA15 but I'm getting a data error.  I've scanned through the op codes twice and can't see which one is wrong.  I got the program to print out the checksum it gets and it is 16 out (57855 instead of 87871) which indicates that one is out by a digit (e.g. C5 instead of D5 or something)

Could someone check it out with a fresh pair of eyes please?

Hi there.

I've had a bit of a perusal at the scans.
They are hard to read innit?

Anyway, I *think* the following need to be corrected in your listing (though I could be wrong!):

310 DATA 6E,BC,21,C6,91,CD,DE,90,3E,42
I reckon the C6 should be CB.

420 DATA ED,78,84,91,C9,21,86,91,CD,DE
The 78 could be 7B.

460 DATA 77,00,DD,23,18,7A,B3,20,EA,FB
The 18 could be 1B.

I hope that helps!

Fingers crossed, you're right.  Its a shame the code was always hard to   read in the magazines!  I'll check it tomorrow when I'm on the machine   with the source code and emulator :)

Nope, that got things up to 57866 but I guess I need to try re-readig with fresh eyes and a magnifying glass!
 
Edit: It's a big ask but is there a higher quality scan for page 27 of AA15?  Some of the letters really are quite blurry and I don't think it's my eyesight!

Ok, here are AA15's type ins.  The only problems are in Sound Digitizer (and Sound Sampler due to not being able to test it without Sound Digitizer) and Double Height Machine Code due to the code being slightly ambiguous on the scanned pages.

Unfortunately the Type-ins from AA15 have been done and are up on the Wiki:( Unfortunately their not marked (by issue number) on the page itself and the Issue number can only be seen from the AA Type-ins page:(

I have uploaded instructions in plain text format for all the Amstrad Action type-ins from issues 5 to 20. I've had them for a while but I never got round to uploading them to CPCWiki until now!

I was also working on the type-ins and instructions for issues 22 to 24, but most of the work seems to have been deleted from my hard disk, so I am understandably not amused and I am not in the mood right now to type them all in again! >:(
