Old historic 'homebrew'

Post by mz-80a »

Hi all. I realise I've been collecting many many different tapes over the years of bidding on eBay auctions. These tapes often included 'homebrew' software that the owners of the machines would have written. So these are unpublished (sometimes unfinished) and / or broken / interesting programs so I thought I would archive them online. It seems a shame for these BASIC programs to be lost to time and not be archived. Somebody somewhere may get some use from them. Anyway, I've uploaded a lot of them here:

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/ ... yUU4I81B-B

to a folder called "Rescued Homebrew". I've still got more to go through and there's a readme file in there which explains the purpose of this. There are nearly always home-written games or programs which come with any collection of tapes as I have found out and now it's getting to the time where I don't have any more room to keep the tapes. They will probably be thrown away. So at least I am digitally preserving them.

No problem. It really is just a collection of random stuff found on random tapes from auctions. None of it is 'official' published software.

Many thanks, I've added them to my collection. It would be nice for everything to be on original.sharpmz.org as I find this website brilliant for all things Sharp, just a shame Karl-Heinz retired.
