Merry Xmas, SpecChums. Blimey.. The last update was well over a year ago - that's... depressing
- Why the delay? Simple - I've had almost no new material sent in since the last update.
It's only relatively recently that I was sent a decent amount of new tips.
This update of 15 months is about the same size as a month's update used to be.
This is fairly disheartening, seeing as it seems there are new games being brought out all the time.
Is nobody doing tips/cheats/maps/POKEs these days? Or is Tipshop no longer useful nowadays?
Come on, folks - get them sent in.. Or email with a note of where I can find them.
That bit of self-pitying moaning over... Thank you - as ever - to the people who did send
in new tips... These fine people are....
- Alberto Garcia sent in an update to an existing bug report he sent in for Cozumel - this time, how to fix it!
- Andy Ryals sent in POKEs for Pac Hic.
- Ben Geeves put together a load of tips for Micronaut One. Thanks to Einar Saukas for sending them onto me.
- Eq sent in a map and solution for Adventure in Bristol. The solution was provided by Garry Lancaster.
He also sent in a corrected version of his map for Karniferous Forest, The.
- Hiker sent in maps for Bog of Brit and Boggit, The.
- Jose Roberto sent in a POKE for Cobra.
- JPNZ provided a cheat for S.D.I..
- Kevin McGrorty kindly sent in images of his fanzine "Tipster" from back in the day.
I used maps for Barbarian II: The Dungeon of Drax, Battle Command and Super Robin Hood.
The pictures provided were sent via Facebook Messenger, so have been scaled down from the original.
Hopefully Kev will provide full sized scans at a later date.
- Lampros Potamianos sent in POKEs for Android Two.
- Martin Moller Skarbiniks Pedersen sent in a hack and POKEs for Project Vaelius;
POKEs for Bomber Pengo, H.E.R.O. Returns, and Yoyo's Revenge and POKEs/tips for Colonos III.
- Pgyuri sent in POKEs for Flying Shark.
- Phil Ruston provided a cheat for Freddie Laker's Airline Capers.
I found a note of it on an old WoS forum post.
- Rui F Ribeiro provided a hack for Jumping Jack to allow the use of Kempston instead of keys.
This was sent on WoS Facebook. I've copied the assembly modifications that he posted.
So it's not a type-in hack, as such - but hopefully it's of use.
- Slider provided corrections for existing POKEs for Gunrunner and Turbo The Tortoise.
They also sent in new POKEs for Binary Land, Bruxolico, Devwill Too, Duckstroma,
Goblin, The, Hakkenkast, Korova Milk Bar, Ms. Nam-Pac, Ovocnici,
Paleto Jones, Bartolo's Flute, Paleto Jones, the Grave of Uncle Ramon,
Popas Si Sania Lui Mos-Craciun, Popas Si Savantul X,
Ramiro, El Vampiro en el Bosque del Suspiro, Savage Princess,
Shovel Adventure, Summer Santa 2022 Update, Virgil's Purgatory,
Waldo's Life, Yokai Monk, Zamolxe Patria Insectelor and Zombi Mall
- Smogit - from the same forum post as above - provided POKEs for Freddie Laker's Airline Capers.
- And that's it. Hope you all enjoy.. Now get sending new stuff in :)
