Amstrad CPC hardware / Re: USB power supply for CPC/PLUS
« Last post by GUNHED on Today at 00:45 »
Well, for my Smok Rha I have an 2 A PSU, but never tried it with CPC since I use the PSU of LED lights (up to 5 V, 5 A) for it (with HxC, M-X4 etc.)

I just spent an hour running the Ramlaid docs through tesseract-ocr, with pretty good results - see attached. Google Translate makes short work of it. I'll tdo the Paradox document another day, I've done enough proofreading of foreign language recognition results for one day.

Fantastic work, I'm reading the Google-Translated version now, it's worked really well.

No.  ;D  Way to hard for me... maybe tomorrow is a better day.

Amstrad CPC hardware / Re: Joystick as mouse
« Last post by Bryce on Today at 00:33 »
Any OS that supports AMX mouse (and as far as I know all do) will allow you to move the cursor with a joystick, because it's exactly the same thing.

Congratulations, at least you can now use it with confidence instead of worrying that it could fall apart at any minute. It was worth taking a look.

No you're not.
It plays exactly as the ZX version, sub pixel perfect  ;D

In short no, the USB power chargers do not supply enough current. The CPC needs at about 1.5A and all USB chargers only supply at most 1A.Also you could not drive the 3 inch drive as it needs 12V @ 1A.

Games / Re: Were there any games you didn't understand ?!
« Last post by Nich on Yesterday at 23:11 »
So, way back in the mid 80s, when I was around 12, I remember buying the Mastertronic game One Man And His Droid... and not having the faintest idea what was going on. I read the instructions a few times but just couldn't make head or tail of it and, frankly, have never revisited that game since. Maybe I should, hoping that my forty-something old brain will now be able to understand what my twelve-year-old brain didn't!

Were there any games that you gave up on because you had no clue what you were supposed to be doing?

I'm glad to hear I'm not alone! I got One Man and His Droid as part of a compilation of 50 games and my 11-year-old self also didn't understand what I was supposed to be doing.

Years later, I tried playing it again, and while I finally managed to understand what I was supposed to be doing, I still couldn't complete the first level. I still hate the game to this day.

Another game that I have never understood how to play is Pneumatic Hammers. I didn't own this when I was young (thankfully), but when I tried to play it so that I could write a review on my website, I gave up. :laugh:
