Welcome to the Amstrad CPC Wiki!
This site hopes to evolve into an encyclopaedia on all things Amstrad CPC related. There are now 4,622 articles around the CPC available. Feel free to contribute or post your suggestions in the Forum!
Since the sad demise of the CPCZone boards, we have expanded our Forum to cover all Amstrad-related topics. We hope we can keep the discussion and the english-speaking scene going...
