On CPC-Power website  you can see how many sectors are used per side.
Side 1: 427 sectors
Side 2: 411 sectors
Size 2 Sectors are 512bytes long so one side is 213kb and the other 206kb.
A 3p floppy disk can handle 42 tracks of 10 T2 sectors per side. (to be compatible with this version)
So a 3p version can be build (maybe removing the intro loading gfx)

You know, Krusty means that the "PHX trackmo" can't be run on a "stock machine" because Amstrad CPC(+) were sold only with a "tapedrive" or 3p diskdrive. But I agree today everybody have a 3,5p diskdrive or an HXC-like hardware. (norecess explained this well)

Nobody complained about this little hardware problem at Revision-Party...

Hoping that people have the same indulgence for some of our demos, not necessarily compatible with some hardware ... ;)

When I came to the Revision 2018, I asked Carlos Pardo a.k.a. "Made" to come with a poster (check his website for more information). I always enjoyed his work for the demoscene (but not only), if you remember well I even interviewed him on my website.

The idea was to let friends at Revision 2018 sign the poster so I could bring home a unique souvenir of the party.

Have signed:
- Krusty
- Optimus
- Alkama
- Kangaroo
- Soundy
- Offset
- BSC
- Zik
- Mars
- Toms
- Hicks
- Prodatron
- me :)
- Made
- Octoate
- TotO
- Beb
- CeD
- Factor6
- Overflow
- Targhan
- Eliot
- Longshot

Looking at this thing is now going to give me infinite motivation for future productions in the years to come ! :)
Thanks !!!
