Kingfisher Corner


The purpose of this web site is to distribute free computer software and music created by members of the Bazley family. Unfortunately, the software will only work on machines running (ex-Acorn) RISC OS . In all likelihood you are using Microsoft Windows, which is not directly compatible (although Acorn emulators are available). This web site is also home to many free patch WAD files for id Software's Doom, the antecedent of most first-person-shooter games, which has been ported to many computer systems (including RISC OS).

Use the links on the left to open different pages. If you can't see a navigation frame (yet your browser supports frames), then you may wish to re-enter this site from the top level.
