Programmers Development System (Dominion and some other sources)

Post by moroz1999 » Mon Oct 07, 2019 8:14 pm

A guy here claims that he's got a CD with Programmers Development System, which also contains some source code for the games like Blob The Cop, may be full Dominion (heclaims it even builds) and some other possible sources, routines and materials (like Castle Capers). All of this possibly belonged to Paul Griffiths.

Unfortunately, Paul's permission is required for publicly posting anything from the CD. I've tried to contact Paul on Facebook, but no look. It kills me thinking that there may be working Dominion game unpublished, or may be something else? And all what's required is a simple yes or no from the author. At least to publish the binary for whatever compiles into binary.

According to this interview, Paul Griffiths has (or used to have) the source code to Joe Blade IV, and considered finding it again. But it doesn't seem like he ever released it.

Something is going on :)

Can't give the direct link, I guess. It's on "Spectrum For Everyone" Facebook group.

Interesting! Are any of the disk labels readable in the photo?
