It wasn't until I had tried BeebEm on the PC just over a year ago that I realised how limited the BBC colour palette was in relation to the C64 - and how awkward it was to remember how to do things under the Beebs OS.

Nice to see this ported over though, good work chaps!

The BBC computer was mainly for education, I remember when I was at school using one, giving away my age now.

Used to love doing
10 Print "Hello world ";
20 Goto 10

it would freak out the teacher

You didn't really put "hello world" though did you?

Nice to see the OS4 version of BeebEm getting an update. I had tried a previous version and found it to be a little buggy.

I love the BBC almost as much as the Amiga and I still actively develop for it.

Keep up the good work.

Kind regards,

Francis.

Could you recommend a site for the BBC Micro like c64.com or lemonamiga.com?

The two good BBC related sites are Stairway to Hell and Retro Software.

Kind regards,
