Y2k Tech: RISC OS: Old software

January 5th, 2013 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Here’s some old software I wrote and release for RISC OS back in 2000.

All software requires RISC OS3+ and 1Mb+ RAM. They have NOT been tested since 2000 (so compatibility with StrongARM, RaspberryPi machines etc is uncertain). They will not run (except under RISC OS emulation) on Windows, Linux, Mac machines etc.


bwamazeA very simple non-desktop maze game set in a three dimensional (3D) environment where your objective is to simply find the treasure and the escape from the maze.

Download bwamaze.zip v0.02 (01-Oct-2000) [6k] for RISC OS. Freeware


bwgsmplayA shareware program (registration fee of 3UKP) allowing you play play back GSM sound files (as used by several internet voice mail systems). Comes complete with two sample GSM files.

Download bwgsmplay v1.09 (01-Oct-2000) [65k] for RISC OS. Shareware.


bwpianoThis is a very simple program with no purpose whatsoever. All it does is display a (strange) piano keyboard with an orang three dimensional hand floating in front of it. The hand is controlled by the mouse and depression of the mouse buttons depresses the fingers of the hand and plays any appropriate notes.

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
