BBC Games List

 

Google
BBC Games List is a game database front end for use with my Mac BeebEm emulator.

The program is based on, and compatible with, the Windows version BBC List by P.Jones to whom I am grateful for allowing me to write a Mac version of the program.

BBC Games List displays a list of games that can be sorted by name, year, publisher and genre. If available, the program will also show a screen shot of the game.

By double-clicking on a program, it will launch BeebEm with the disc loaded and automatically start the game. The autorun feature will only work on BeebEm version 3.0v and above.

There are also numerous filter options available to allow you to find the game you want.

Menu options are also available to add or edit information in the game database.

If you have any corrections or additions to the database, please email me with the information so hopefully, we can end up with a complete list of all published BBC games !

The program comes with a database of over 2000 games but you will have to find your own disc images. My ISP bandwidth bill would rocket if I made them available here !

I tend to use www.stairwaytohell.com so the program now has an option to automatically download disc and tapes images straight into the database. This is an instant way to build up a collection of over 3,000 disc and tape game images !

You can see a screen shot of the program running below (click on the picture for a bigger image).


 

If the program crashes with strange errors etc, please let me know so I can fix the problems !

Also, if you are good at creating program icons and would like to design an icon for this program, please get in touch as I am really pants when it comes to anything artistic !

You can download the latest version of the program below :

The program is written using REALbasic 2006 R4 and so is a true universal binary application.
