Great set up there! The PCW8256 was all I had to play games on from 1988-1991. I now have 3 in my collection as I fix them and can't bear to sell them on :)

There was something special about that green display I'm sure. I have fond memories and hope you do too.

Oh yes very fond memories of playing On the Run from the Distractions compilation disk. Great videos BTW, very impressed with your work on the C64.

Not sure about your "low resolution" comment on the PCW. It had 720x256 resolution, one of the highest resolutions of the time.

I meant more my photo of the screen, but it came out wrong. You're right, it looked great in real life! I loved The Pawn graphics detail. Though of course by today's standards, it is "low resolution".
