Numbers are looking a little down on issue 1 in terms of copies, but there's still some time left :)

What do you mean by this? That fewer people has bought issue 2 compared to issue 1?

Yes exactly, perhaps it's not to everyone's taste?  :laugh:

Lots of subscriptions though, so the long-term prospects are looking good.

For issue 2:
32 copies sold through Kickstarter (vs. 55 for issue 1)
13 copies sold through the website (approx) (vs. around 15 for issue 1)

The numbers are no problem for printing the fanzine, but it's nice to reach as many people as possible :)

We're now approaching the final 24 hours of the Kickstarter campaign for issue 2.

There's still time to bag yourself a copy at 
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/803660556/colour-personal-computing-issue-2

For our feature on converting games to run on the GX4000 (via a C4CPC) I've been busy working on a .CPR version of Potsworth & Co which I'll post here once it's working 100%. I think I'm half-way to learning the fundamentals of Z80 Assembler from looking into this which is a bit of a bonus!

I've been working on a couple of 'improvements' to the original where possible....

Just an update on Issue 2...

We've snagged a bit of an exclusive on an unreleased CPC game from almost 30 years ago, whose identity will remain a secret until the fanzine is published. We'll have a small feature on it, some words from the developer and a review inside the fanzine. Oh, and we'll let you know where to download it :)

If you missed the Kickstarter then you can still order your copy of issue 2 (in full colour!) from http://www.cpcfanzine.com/ :)

EDIT: I wrote 20 years originally, I meant 30!

My colour copy of issue one has arrived and it looks fantastic.
Such an improvement.
The print quality is great and everything just stands out more.
It certainly helps with screenshots.
The Amstrad is known for its bright colours and the 27 of them look great especially for the Dooms Day review.


I am more than happy to pay extra for future issues to be in colour.
Thou shall not question Captain Wrong!
