The listings expired only a day or two ago - maybe lotharek didn't notice?

Probably a person.

He uses standard postage. I think the last one he sent me took about 6 days to get to Germany.

Let me turn the "Pedantic" mode to off in the forum's settings...

Ok, back. Lotharek. Takes about a week to arrive (Greece), but he doesn't send them out every day, so you'll have to add a couple of days to that.

So what's the best way to play Amstrad games from this thing? ( I have an SD card already )


Is every game available to play through the HxC?

Of course. You just convert all the dsk file syou have into the HFE format with the software provided (supports muss conversion) and it will read them all.


Word of caution: better put your HFE files into subdirectories - having hundreds of files to wade through becomes cumbersome. So use subdirs like 0-9,A,B and so on.
Word of caution (bis): HFE files as shown in the HxC manager on your CPC are NOT sorted alphabetically, but rather by date - files added last will be shown first. That's how files are organised on SD cards from what I understand, so unless you want to end up with everything mixed up, first finalise the file organisation on your PC and THEN copy them over to the SD. Alternatively, there are programs that can touch the files' dates on an SD card in alphabetical order so that you see them in, erm, alphabetical order. Do a search here on the forum, it's been discussed before...

^ Great cheers!


Anyhoo my HxC device arrived, but guess what still waiting on the bloody cables! This is why I really feel the creator should sell packages  :(

I agree with you Neil79 - it's a great device but it would be nice if it came with the ribbon cable, power cable, etc. I'm fairly new to the CPC scene so it's been a real learning curve trying to figure out where to buy all the extras from!
