The Icon Bar: News and features: Do your part for the RISC OS gaming scene
 

Do your part for the RISC OS gaming scene

Posted by Ed Willson on 18:14, 4/8/2005 | ,
 
At AcornArcade, we are always dedicated to keeping you up to date with the RISC OS gaming scene, and bringing you the best freeware, shareware and ex-commercial downloads available for the platform.

However, in order to continue doing what we do, we need your help.

We have come across some old games which we plan to release, the only problem being that they need certain !EasyWIMP modules to run.

These modules are extreemly hard to come by, and the only internet evidence of them existing, is that they were included in the Wimp Programmer's Toolkit, which itself is included with the RISC User in a Nutshell compilation CD.

Nobody on the AA team owns this CD, so if you have a copy, (or the original RISC User discs!) please dont wait to let us know, either by e-mail, or through our Forums

Update

We now have the modules we wanted :)

Acres of thanks go to Owen Griffin, for being Ultra quick-off-the-mark in sending us a copy :-)

Unregistered user I think the WIMP programmer's toolkit was also available in a subscription deal with Acorn User along with the BASIC programmer's toolkit.
I have both. :) Time to boot up the RISC PC...
