Sounds good, can I buy/beg for an online update or possibly get the binaries another way than dumping someone else's cart?

Perhaps you can supply a patch file (or two) to use on a dump of my current one(s)?

Who shall I ask?

On the other hand, presumably we can just leave our mega carts the way they are? I don't think I have any way of updating it anyway.

I wasn't expecting it to be - or I would probably have found it on the web-page. ;-)
Can an e-mail be sent to me with a patch file(s) for my current bin files? Perhaps the full binary files?

I'm willing to pay a small fee if necessary.

As I understand it there's some waiting time on new carts, would be handy if I could solve this matter myself and not add to the "to do list" of someone else. It seems a bit of a waste buying a new cart all just to update the roms.

This thread saved me. I have had Bomber Word for years and had no idea what it was. Perusing this tonight and I hit RESTORE. Wala!! Thank you.

Glad to help heh. Looking back, I think the way it works is that if you created a custom list of words, you load them in after powering on, then hit Restore to boot the game and use the new list in memory. But seeing as we don't have the manual, then we're left to guess a bit heh.

Sadly I can barely read that, any scan of a proper flat scan of it to include in GB20?

Perhaps these may be more usable.

Been playing around with this and it's an average interpretation of HANGMAN on cartridge (how much would this have cost!!??)

I've retyped the instructions and fixed the cassette program (nothing to stop you using it from disk) at the bottom of the sheet - it was corrupting the last few words and not reporting the added and omitted words correctly. I tried this out by making a .prg with 100 words in the data statements and it seems to work OK.

A .pdf and .d64 with the bomberword-a000.prg and 100words.prg
can be downloaded from here.

Cheers, probably useful for GB20 :)
