Hi everyone! Smiley

A few days ago I bought a Family Basic keyboard with the software and the various instructions, but inside the instructions there was this little booklet that wasn't mentioned in the auction photos. I don't read japanese, but it seems an instrucion booklet to program a Star Wars game in BASIC!
I've never seen anything like this before; do you know other booklets like this?

I include a couple of photos of the booklet (but if you think it interesting enough I can scan it and post it here! Grin )

Thanks in advance,

Dario

I very doubt this prinout is for Family Basic. Can you take photos of the rest of the pages?

Aw, it's really a pity if it's not for the famicom! Sad

I found it in the manual so I thought it was for the Family Basic, but I guess I was too quick in my judgment!

what makes you think it's not for the Family BASIC?

Here's the rest of the booklet!

dado2095,

It looks a little bit too advanced to be done on Family Basic. This is still a really cool find.  Grin The only way to see if it'd work on Family Basic would be to input all of those lines of code manually if you're up for the challenge. It will take a bit though!

It's using kanji in some of the strings. It can't be Family Basic since you can't use kanji.

Nothing to do with kanji(replace them with kana), but CLOAD, CONSOLE, WIDTH, STOPM, BGM x.
Also table for sounds. My guess, this is for PC-6601 or X1 or older Sharp MZ series.
On the other side, this is classic IIRC basic games "Catch UFO".

Yeah though maybe not impossible to port to Famly BASIC.

From the looks of the front page it sounds like it's a text book from a high school engineering class. Maybe the original owner was attending that school and tried to do homework on Famicom. Smiley

Wasn't it Star Wars? You might have to jump on it a little after cramming it in.

But if it uses bitmapped screen mode drawing functions (i.e. not using sprites and BG tiles) it might not be possible on the Famicom.
