The modified version later appeared on the covertape included with the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 16, Jan 1987|Christmas 1986]] issue (#16), and again on the covertape included with the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 74, Nov 1991|November 1991]] issue (#74). John Keneally also programmed the game ''[[Dervish]]'', which was published by [[The Power House]] in 1988. ''Graphic Patterns'' is a slightly modified version of a listing that was published in the CPC464 User Instructions. This was confirmed by a reader who wrote a letter to ''Amstrad Action'', which was published in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 8, May 1986|May 1986]] issue (#8). === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionTypeType-Ins_006.dsk.zip|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_006_AmstradDrumkit.png|<center>Amstrad Drumkit</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_006_PsychedelicPlot.png|<center>Psychedelic Plot</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_006_DiskMenu.png|<center>Disk Menu</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_006_GraphicPatterns.png|<center>Graphic Patterns</center></gallery></center> == AA 007 - April 1986 == * Codebreaker (Paul Taylor) - a modification was also provided for users of green screen monitors === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionType-Ins_007.dsk.zip|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_007_Codebreaker.png|<center>Codebreaker</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_007_Codebreaker_GreenScreen.png|<center>Codebreaker, modified for use on green screen monitors</center></gallery></center> == AA 008 - May 1986 == * Conveyor Belt (Roger Wilson)* Swirl (Paul Fairhurst)* Rotating Sphere (James Cadwallader) === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionType-Ins_008.dsk.zip|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_008_ConveyorBelt.png|<center>Conveyor Belt</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_008_Swirl.png|<center>Swirl</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_008_RotatingSphere.png|<center>Rotating Sphere</center></gallery></center> == AA 009 - June 1986 == * Drumkit Revisited (Peter Newman) - a modification to ''Amstrad Drumkit'' that allows each sound channel to be reset* Unerase (Alexander Clark) - separate versions are provided for system/vendor format discs and data format discs* Etch-a-Sketch (Dick Ruck)* Typing Tutor (Dick Ruck)* Trix (Philip Gardner)* Key-RSX (Philip Pepperell) A correction to ''Unerase'' was published in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 11, Aug 1986|August 1986]] issue (#11), which fixed a problem where the wrong line number was displayed if the user typed in the <tt>DATA</tt> statements incorrectly. However, the program still works without the correction if it is typed in without any mistakes. === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionType-Ins_009.dsk.zip|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_009_DrumkitRevisited.png|<center>Drumkit Revisited</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_009_Unerase.png|<center>Unerase</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_009_Etch-a-Sketch.png|<center>Etch-a-Sketch</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_009_TypingTutor.png|<center>Typing Tutor</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_009_Trix.png|<center>Trix</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_009_Key-RSX.png|<center>Key-RSX</center></gallery></center> == AA 010 - July 1986 == * Speed 3K (Chris Rollo)* CAT#8 (Justin Macklin)* Blitter (Paul Bond) Two versions of ''CAT#8'' were supposed to be published in this issue - one version for CPC464 machines, and a shorter version for CPC664 and CPC6128 machines, which used the <tt>COPYCHR$</tt> command. However, ''Amstrad Action'' forgot to print the 464 version. It was published in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 11, Aug 1986|August 1986]] issue (#11). ''Blitter'' later appeared on the covertape included with the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 16, Jan 1987Ins|Christmas 1986]] issue (#16). === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionType-Ins_010.dsk.zip|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_010_Blitter.png|<center>Blitter</center></gallery></center> == AA 011 - August 1986 == * Bouncers (Justin Hedden)* CAT#8 (Justin Macklin) - the 464 version, which was mistakenly omitted from the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 10, Jul 1986|July 1986]] issue (#10) The 464 version of ''CAT#8'' also works on CPC664 and CPC6128 machines. === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionType-Ins_011.dsk.zip|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_011_Bouncers.png|<center>Bouncers</center></gallery></center> == AA 012 - September 1986 == * Letter Puzzler (Simon Watson)* Manuscript (Colin Powell) === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionType-Ins_012.dsk.zip|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_012_LetterPuzzler.png|<center>Letter Puzzler</center></gallery></center> == AA 013 - October 1986 == * GIGO (John C. Ablett) ''GIGO'' later appeared on the covertape included with the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 16, Jan February 1987|Christmas 1986]] issue (#16). === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionTypeType-Ins_013.dsk.zipIns|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_013_GIGO.png|<center>GIGO</center></gallery></center> == AA 014 - November 1986 == * Poster Maker (Peter Doel)* Torus (Roger Wilson)* Simon (T. Magee) ''Amstrad Action'' neglected to mention that ''Simon'' only works on CPC664 and CPC6128 machines, due to its use of commands that are only available in BASIC 1.1. This was noted in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 15, Dec 1986|December 1986]] issue (#15), and they offered "apologies to any frustrated 464 users." A reply to a letter from a reader that was published in the [[Amstrad Action, Issue 16, Jan February 1987|Christmas 1986]] issue (#1617) also stated that the type-in only works on CPC664 and CPC6128 machines. ''Simon'' also contains a minor bug; when entering the playing speed, you must enter <tt>F</tt> or <tt>S</tt> in upper case. The program does not accept lower case letters. ''Amstrad Action'' did not print a correction in any subsequent issues. The Problem Attic section of this issue contains a feature on vertical and horizontal hardware scrolling, which includes several example type-ins. === Download === * [[Media:AmstradActionType-Ins_014.dsk.zip|DSK file]] === Screenshots === <center><gallery style="clear: both">Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_014_Torus.png|<center>Torus</center>Image:AmstradActionType-Ins_014_Simon.png|<center>Simon</center></gallery></center> == AA 015 - December 1986 == From this issue, the Type-Ins section was expanded to five pages, allowing many more type-ins to be published in each issue. A new typesetting process was also used in order to make them easier for users to enter correctly. * Sound Digitizer (Richard Monteiro)* Motor Control (Alex Aird)* Kaleidoscope (Alex Gough)* Patterns (P.
