I don’t know if I’m the copyright holder of Batz 'n Balls, but I certainly am the author and would like to grant permission to everybody to download this game. Lots of years I deleted about 100Mb of Sam and Spectrum programs (and all my Z80 sources). Still regret that every now and then …
Ah well, happily married and living in South Africa now.
I hereby allow distribution of all my SAM Coupé titles and associated
manuals freely on any site carrying such material.

This disk, or images of this disk may be freely copied and distributed as long as the contents are not modified in any form.
Gary Thomas was asked by me (Steve Parry-Thomas) for permission to archive the disk images and manuals as pdfs for GM-Base and GM-Calc.

A few days later the GM-Base manual was sent by Gary with some of their adverts for the GM software. - The manual will be pdf sometime this year (2006) - so take it as permission has been granted for this software to be placed in the PD for all.
From Simon Owen:
This archive contains many versions of the SAM Coupé 32K ROM image, released
with kind permission from the ROM author, Dr Andy Wright.
