In the search how to write programs or how to convert them for my BBC Master, I discovered Accelerator from Computer Concepts in one of the old magazines.
This program would give me the posibility to write a BASIC program and convert it into a machine code version.
After a WOW and YEHAAH, I started to look around on the internet to find these ROMs.

A little search on the webbrought me to ROM images, but without a manual.
So I asked the Stairway to Hell forum if someone knew he application and ROMs and luckely someone did. He was so kind and willing to send me a scanned manual.
I OCRed the pages and created a totally new version of the manual. (as close as I could to the original one).

So here it is.
A fully OCRed version (and polished here and there) of the manual of Accelerator.

The link below contains tehj following :

  • 2 ROM images (need both)
  • 1 manual
  • 1 reference card
  • 2 disk images (DFS and ADFS)

I posted this file on the Stairway to Hell forum and there we found out that it does not work on a BBC Master.
Butas the ROMs do not work, the converted Machine code version of your application does work on a Master. So you have to convert your program on a BBC and the result program will run (as far as I could see) on a Master. If you found out other things about this Accelerator, please contact me.
