Amstrad CPC hardware / Re: 3.5 Drives disk Capacity

nirvana is good.


If you can use roms then parados is great.


I will try it and see if it works better than jl, i do not have a rom board but will get one pretty soon because i still can't locate a 3" drive so the 3.5 seems to be the only option. I've tested Parados on an emulator and it's great and if i really wan't to take advantage of the extra space i must get one.

Can anyone suggest a file copy program on the cpc other than JL-Copy (discology excluded)? seems it does not like big files (more than 30k) very much.

I have successfully compiled / built it!
It starts up, but I am getting a grey screen.
SCreenresolution? How do I change that?
I couldn't find a config file. And none of the
command line options seems to have it.
sounds like it can't find the roms, it's doing like a real cpc would ;) What do people see when the rom is broken in a real cpc? A grey screen with black border.



"make install" should then do it. You will need to change to the build_arnz80_release folder to do that.


It either installs to ~/.local/bin
or /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin

The ALSA PCM lib buffer underrun problem causing laggy emulation has been fixed!
Here is a video showing the 60 $ Pocket CPC in action:

I bought a GX4000 off ebay a couple of months ago... and the seller shipped it internationally by the cheapest non-tracked package service possible. So of course I don't have it, can't chase it, and don't even know if the seller actually sent it or just ripped me off. Yaaaaay. :P

(edit: and I've just checked and discovered I missed the cutoff for ebay protection by a couple of days. Double yaaaay.)

I'm pretty sure that he knew that Amstrad had created an excellent computer, probably just playing up the word processor angle for the article.

Yet again, absolutely stunning.
Lots of colour combos that I would never consider putting together, but they work really well!




Thanks, I uselessly take the experimental route, not always the best option but it's a game in itself.


I think it also helps with learning how far you can stretch the palette as well.
CPC is no slouch.


I did think I would suffer a bit coming over from doing so many C64 pics but its been a joy, with out all the inbetween greys to blend stuff you find more inventive replacements to get that hue shifted look kids go wild after :P
+ character restrictions can go to hell. I'm done
