Were arcades age-restricted?

Some time ago I read this article in YS which stated that arcades in the UK were age-restricted and you had to be 16 to enter one. I was wondering if this was true. Was there some kind of law to enforce this?

Re: Interesting game maps?

What I meant was a lot of games that are divided into separate levels will have them completely apart from each other, so you complete one and move onto the next, and they don't have any particular spatial relation to each other. In Space Monsters Meet the Hardy, the levels have been designed so the...

Re: Interesting game maps?

I thought it interesting how Space Monsters Meet the Hardy had levels that are played separately, but arranged onto one complete map, so you can see levels adjacent to the one you're currently playing.

Re: My reverse engineering tool

Is it possible to change the type of a text/code/data segment if it's been set incorrectly? After setting memory to the code type, it doesn't seem possible to change it back, and there's no undo feature.

Also, are breakpoints able to be saved along with the project?

Re: CSSCGC 2020

It's because the snapshot is in SNA format, which is designed to support the 48K Spectrum and the Pentagon 128.

Re: Little bugs in the database 2

Judging by the dates on Twitter, Chase The Ace, Computalk, Pangolin, Dog Walk, and Space 1999 were released in 2019, not 2018.

Re: Betadisk - original floppy

Other than the Delta 128 utility disk for the Sinclair QL, I wasn't able to locate anything. Apparently some of the commands from the disk were relocated to later versions of the builtin ROM. And there is this catalogue from one version of the Beta 128 manual : Title: $Utili 6 file(s) 0 Del. file(s)...
