Re: Tribble Trouble...or more importantly, NO trouble.
Wow, interesting pointers there edgar and blob. Anyway how you can encounter those Tribbles in Elite(C64)? Im curious! Cause All I can remember was saving a young Prince from a certain planet. Never got to save him but manages to ride with me on my ship and All the pirate vessels are after me! :-(
As I remember, you happened upon a spacecraft drifting in space (as it does...) and after helping the hapless occupant (I can't remember how ?), he pays you with a "priceless" item. When you then check your cargo you find nothing has changed, and feel you've been swindled. Anyway, after a while, maybe half to one hour of gameplay, the Tribbles start making little squeaky noises and eventually drift across your HUD, blocking all the important data like your navscreen.
How did the C64 have Tribbles. Apparently they were a product of the C64's sprite handling abilities, and each Tribble (of which you could end up with countless) was a sprite. which could be animated and could drift aimlessly across your screen, usually at the most inoportune times!
They started out as good fun, but eventually pissed you off.
