jsbeeb top 20 images

A quick one this. Last night while I ought to be doing more micro-architecture research I was instead reading the Wikipedia article on Beebdroid.

I noticed it had the top 20 played games…and I thought I’d do the same for jsbeeb.

So for the period 1st January 2015 to 16th February 2016, the top 20 disc images loaded from the “Stairway to Hell” archive are:

Image Number of loads Percentage
10OfTheBestGames 374 4.00%
Elite 318 3.40%
2002 192 2.06%
Airwolf 128 1.37%
3DPool 123 1.32%
Exile 117 1.25%
Elite-v1.0_B 111 1.19%
3DBombAlley 101 1.08%
Elite-MasterAndTubeEnhanced 99 1.06%
Arcadians 84 0.90%
ChuckieEgg 84 0.90%
180Darts 82 0.88%
Repton 81 0.87%
3DGrandPrix 78 0.83%
Frak 72 0.77%
10OfTheBestEducation_B 72 0.77%
3DConvoy 68 0.73%
Pacman 67 0.72%
CastleQuest 65 0.70%
1984 61 0.65%

Interesting, eh? I can only guess “100OfTheBestGames” and “2002” are so popular because they appear near the top of the image picker dialog if you don’t filter it.

For what it’s worth this doesn’t include all the hits to the built-in Elite image. That numbers 8,500 hits over the same period.
