Quote from: Bryce on 16:53, 09 March 16An Amstrad where the word Colour is spelt without a "u"? They'll have to try harder next time.Bryce.
Quote from: Bryce on 17:11, 09 March 16Actually, the originator: Android Arts does some really nice mockup art, the site is well worth a browse.Bryce.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 17:19, 09 March 16I agree, Chinnyhill needs to calm down and Amstrad on
Quote from: chinnyhill10 on 17:25, 09 March 16Sorry didn't realise it was your clickbait I was criticising. Very poor show and an extremely cynical way to get clicks to your site.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 17:34, 09 March 16I'm really sorry I've upset you so much, you only had to send me a private message, and I'd have dealt with it, your reaction seems quite extreme, these things happen, essentially trying to humiliate me for an honest mistake. Seems a bit out of order to me, and counter productive to the community. You can clearly see from my signature that my blog and other pages are Classic Replay.
Quote from: chinnyhill10 on 17:46, 09 March 16I generally skip past sigs and hadn't made the connection.I'm not trying to humiliate you. But there are so many alarm bells around this piece that it looks exactly like clickbait.The entire text is full of stuff that would alert anyone with a knowledge of 8 bits to things that were problematic. Setting colours by jumpers on the back. The advert render of the device not being something easily drawn in 1984. The wrong Amstrad logo. Launching the product on New Years Day (thereby missing Xmas peak sales and also a bank holiday), the fact it was to be released before the 464 when the launch of the 464 is extremely well documented. Repeated black and transparent colours in the palette? Custom VDP in an era when this didn't generally happen and certainly Amstrad wouldn't do it.It's head in hands stuff. If it's labelled as "this is a mock up" or a joke I could laugh at it. But I've seen it passed around today as news and makes me despair. CPC owners really have to take the brunt of being laughed at and frankly the prospect of this mess being touted around for the next umpteen years as real fills me with dread. And if you don't believe that can happen, remember what happened to that mocked up Speccy joypad from 10+ years ago (although to be fair the Vega isn't that far off it!).It is easily fixed though. Label it as a "mock" or whatever at the top. Sticking stuff at the bottom means it gets missed.
Quote from: ukmarkh on 17:55, 09 March 16Listen mate I've admitted my mistake, apologised and removed it from Twitter and am in the process of removing it from anywhere else it was posted. You're clearly very dedicated to the community, which is great, but please don't carry on berating me for an honest mistake.

Quote from: seanb on 11:34, 10 March 16I missed the article and would like to see it.Shame you took it down.I like a good mock up. Some of the DreamCast 2 mock ups are incredible.
