SCADS - PD Release


Quote from Revelation advert in Format Vol 11 No 11.

SCADS PD Yes, at last we are pleased to re-release SCADs - the arcade development system for SAM. Previously sold by GlenCo at £24.95 we have placed the software into the Public Domain

Stefan Drissen - Sophistry, SAM MOD player and the rest


All my SAM stuff may be freely downloaded and used.

Not entirely sure as to the copyright on Sophistry, since I programmed it but it was a port from the Speccy version. As far as I’m concerned, have it!

Edwin Blink - B-DOS


From the B-DOS Information file on disc:

The B-DOS code and B-DOS information are FREEWARE. This is a fully functional DOS and there are no silly restrictions whatsoever. Please pass it on to other SAM users.

Enjoy B-DOS.

Edwin Blink.

Tim Paveley - Sam Coupé Scrapbook Contents


I’m finding myself linking more and more entries to the Scrapbook so I thought I’d check that that was OK with you in the first instance.


The second thing I’d like to ask is how I link to the pages, if they are still updated then I can just link a URL but if they are effectively static now would you object to me taking the content and reformatting it on with a ‘Taken from the scrapbook’ link at the bottom?

To be honest, I’m unlikely to make any major updates, so copy if you prefer - if you do link could you use Sam Coupé Scrapbook link though, incase I move them again.


Steve Taylor - Mouse Driver 2.0


From the README.64C on the disc:

“Mouse Driver v2.0 is Public Domain software and may, as such, be used and copied freely. You may also use it in this form for commercial software, provided appropriate credit is given.”

Tim Paveley - EGGBuM



“Our first major program was the game “EGGBuM” for the Sam. This was freely distributable, and was included on the popular Sam disk magazine “Fred”. A PC version, with additional features, is currently being written.”

Dan Dooré/Banzai Productions


All my work is now, as it was then Public Domain.

From the masses for the masses.

Colin MacDonald - Fred Magazine and other properties


From Colin MacDonald:

In case it helps, I’ll certainly not complain about anything I still hold
copyright to going up - although all the Fred magazines are already up,
there were some other mags I got in the end (Enceladus, SCPDU, Outlet), and
of course, all the commercial software - although I should point out that
certainly the copyright to the code of those will have reverted to
programmers long ago, but design, art, audio and other rights to most of the
titles probably still rest with me.

Andrew Collier - Syncytium


I have no objection to disk images of Syncytium being made available for download from
