Utility programmer for the SAM SC_ Steves Software coming soon


I’m Steve Nutting the Sam Coupe Utility programmer with thanks to Simon Owens new Sim Coupe and renewed interest in the Sam will upload my vast catalogue of software.

This will take time as I don`t for example have a PC that will accept an internal floppy drive, only USB which will not except Floppy Disc loading on Simcoupe.

I started off with SCASSEMBLER in May 1990 5 months after the Sam coupe was first released most of the work was done on the Spectrum months before the Sam came onto the market.

Some of the other authors earlier Sam programs were created with my Assembler.

The last program was SCWORDPro one of the longest and complex programs I had written.

I also hope to upload all the source for all the utility software as well as the pdf manuals, so you can see for yourself just how hard I had to work as I created my own routines rather than use the Sam Rom.

This will also quickly verify and prove that I have indeed programmed and allowed my software to be shared with all those interested.

All the best,

Version 1.0 of SimCoupe released

    I’ll be performing some updates to the software which drives worldofsam on Saturday afternoon or evening. Don’t be surprised or worried if worldofsam is temporarily unavailable.

    Functionality Musings

    Site Maintenance

    Some thoughts I’ve had:

    1. A field of ‘More Info Required’ that can be listed in a similar way to ‘Missing in Action’ to show which entries are a bit light on content or where the author is unsure of the info?

    2. A related people list like related products?

    3. Can the related products do a less-fuzzy match so that it treats the freelinked text as whole rather that as space delimited so that ‘Andy Monk’ doesn’t match any other ‘Andy’s?

    4. Removing anonymous comments or adding anonymous editing with registered users able too roll-back to pervious versions.

    Can we have a quick link to ‘Hardware’ as there is probably enough content to justify it?

    Products List

    Is it possible to add the type e.g. game/utility to the listing on the ‘Products’ list?

    Reason being is that for items that are created just as ‘Software’ (the default) it’s hard to check if they have been correctly allocted to a catagory.
