 There's quite a lot of games on my website
 www.dilwyn.uk6.net/games/index.html
 
 Cavern is there. Not sure if this is the same game as you mention (I
 think there was a commercial game called Cavern and a PD game called
 Cavern and I can't remember which was which.

Thanks! The Cavern game on your site is the correct one! I downloaded QemuLator 
and JM ROMs, but I get an error in line 300 in the cavern_bas: r=ALCHP(72000): 
error in expression. As I remember the ALCHP command reserves some memory, 
about 72Kb in this line. It seems to not find the command at all. I thought 
ALCHP was a standard command in the old QDOS. Am I wrong?

Suddenly I remembered! I replaced ALCHP with RESPR and now it works! Is ALCHP a 
command found in Toolkit II? The game was a bit slow, but I got the nostalgic 
feeling. I guess it is more than 15 years sincle I played the game, from 
microdrive. It was impossible to copy the game to a floppy.

 Thanks I will put a package together for PD release.
 
 Have we tempted you to come back and do some programming for us again
 now? We could do with some more programmers.

Hm, I haven't done any QL programming since 1997 when I wrote a Jeopary game 
to use in my class. I worked as a teacher for 6 years, and the game Jeopardy 
was a big hit on TV. My students loved it. I wrote a program to control input 
from two joysticks and keep records of who pressed the button first. I asked a 
question and the fastest one could answer. The program counted points and so 
on. I had an Atari computer with the QL emulator in my classroom.

I'm not sure my wife agree I spend more time on computers than I already do :-)

 Pal,
   if you are still reading this list, do you have a text copy of DM5
 manual to save me having to scan it all in for the PD release ?
 --

I'll check if I have the original Calamus document. The manual was made
with Calamus, an Atari DTP program. I think I still have a backup of my
Atari stuff. I'll let you know.

Nice to hear from you! I'm sorry, but I do no longer have the source
code for DM5, so I guess it's impossible to make DM5 work with extended
colours. I anyone is interested, please put the program into Public Domain.

In case you're curious, the result looks like this (with my personal
theme colours, look on other systems will differ as colours and even
the sprites at the top are not hard wired anymore):

I must say I'm impressed! I have not seen DM5 for 8-10 years now, and it 
looks much better than I can remember. I don't think I have a working 
version around. Is it possible to mail me DM5? I'd like to try it in the 
QPC demo.

[ql-users] Disk Mate 5

Dear friends,
I found this mail list and I guess there are still some QL users out 
there. I wrote the program Disk Mate many years ago. Are there still 
anyone using Disk Mate?

I actually bought it from you at a meeting (don't remember which) but don't 
use it any more.
Yes, I remember you. I attended meetings in Munster, Eindhoven and 
Bielefeld...
