8BS Disc Based Magazine

You will find that a new menu is now available top left of this page listing all of the disc based magazines converted for viewing here.

The articles in teletext (40 column) and are as close as I can get to it looking like the real thing without using an emulator or real Beeb. The only thing missing is flashing and occasional animation of menus (I have made Flash movies of those). Currently, there is a sync problem caused by the movie playing whilst downloading, it sorts itself out as soon as download has completed, so please bear with it.

Where you see this icon:next to a teletext article, you can view it in plain text.

The teletext articles were made by taking screen grabs in B-emV2.2Win and then pasting them together using the vertical 'Create Panorama' option in Irfanview4.25.

The text was taken from the teletext articles by removing the original files from the disc image using Jon Welch's two excellent bits of software: DFS Explorer and ADFS Explorer. Then using Hex Workshop to remove the header and then a Macro in Word to firstly remove all the teletext control codes and then split to 40 characters a line.

The plain text articles were removed from the disc image using Jon Welch's DFS and ADFS Explorer.

The BASIC Listings were removed using DFS and ADFS Explorer 'List as BASIC' option. Mode 7 control characters display as '�'. If you right click and open the file listing in a new tab/window, other symbols that are not the correct ones show. For instance '©' (VDU135, the code for alphanumeric white) on the BBC displays as '‡' in UTF-8 encoding. I tried a number of fixes so that these codes would display as they do on the BBC Micro in Mode 0 but failed to find a feasible fix after trying many solutions.
