Elite on the BBC Micro

Status: TALLYFRAC (Master version)

Name: TALLYFRAC [View in context] Type: Variable Category: Status Summary: Fractional number of kills awarded for destroying each type of ship
This figure contains the fractional part of the points that are added to the combat rank in TALLY when destroying a ship of this type. This is different to the other BBC versions, where you always get a single combat point for everything you kill; in the Master version, it's more sophisticated. The integral part is stored in the TALLYINT table. Each fraction is stored as the numerator in a fraction with a denominator of 256, so 149 represents 149 / 256 = 0.58203125 points.
