Y2k Tech: RISC OS: Old software

January 5th, 2013

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.

RISC OS: Paul Vigay found dead

February 21st, 2009

I don’t normally make postings like this, but I feel I have got to pass on the news to any old ex-RISC OS users (or any current ones) who haven’t heard the sad news yet.

Paul Vigay, ex-Micronet 800 editor, researcher on Signs, general crop-circle expert, founder of Orpheus Internet, UFO expert, founder of Digital Phenomena, founder of RISC OS.org, general privacy expert, all around helpful good chap, and last, but not least, husband to Louie, has been unfortunately found dead at the age of 44 in Southsea in Hampshire and will be missed by a large number of people (including myself) who have been in contact with him one way or another. The death is not being reported as suspicious (BBC News).
