Re: Tempest 4000 on PC....oh dear

The reviews basically say if you've not played anything since Space Giraffe then it's cool (but pricey) but if you played TxK on any platform it is little more than that game re-branded.

Anyone played Polubius PSVR?

Re: Amstrad CPC Core

The best person to talk to is Kevin Thacker. He wrote the first "demo quality" emulator for the Amstrad back in the day called A-PC on the Amiga and later Arnold on PC. He's very approachable. I think he created CPCWiki too.

Re: Atari 520/1040 ST F/FM/E repro boxes - In the making

Ok, but because I want a couple if you return I'd be prepared to share 50:50 the NRE costs of making them. It would halve your risk/loss.

They are effectively free. You go to the MAXIM website and register with a non webmail (gmail/hotmail) email address. Then ask for some free samples. They'll send you 2 of each compatible NVRAM batteries. Even international postage is free. [Edit: That said I don't seem to be able to find the sample...

Re: ST and STE files

Your MegaSTe has a hard drive (You've got a SCSI2SD?) so first thing to look at is HDD installs from PPera, DBug and many others.
