Quote from: MacDeath on 18:30, 16 June 10Ouch, my PC just bust a nut thx to your video... Seriously What's up ?Is it simply a corrupted dump ?Or is it the hardware use of a relay to add musical features...which of course is a shitty way...Or the cracker tried to put a CPC virus, sort of ? But it was notorious that many games protection actually screwed up the CPC performances...
Quoteit would surprise me if Amstrad had thrown in a relay in the 6128+ as well for the one or two legacy games that (ab)use it as an audio effect).
QuoteThese things are simple enough and have a long lifespan, so you shouldn't notice any degradation.
Quote from: Gryzor on 10:13, 17 June 10back in the day I was of the opinion that the 6128 was the only machine you could damage via software - system calls, as it were (I had destroyed my drive by trying random calls, something that, IIRC, the manual absolutely forbade!)...
Quote from: OCT on 22:12, 18 June 10Reports of code-inflicted hardware damage are rare enough on CPCs - however the C64 was known for being susceptible to "killer POKEs", which a few miscreants would keep entering to vandalize the machines on display in department stores.
Quote from: Gryzor on 10:15, 21 June 10Btw, this is an interesting topic for the wiki. Nurgle, would you care writing one up since it seems you know quite a bit on it?
Quote from: nurgle on 13:40, 21 June 10I only remember what the magazines wrote about the supposed C64 "killer POKEs" back then plus the wikipedia reference I googled. I fail to see the CPC relevance since I never heard anyone speculating about "killer POKEs" on the CPC.
Quote from: nurgle on 15:56, 21 June 10Look at the wikipedia reference I gave earlier. These things do exists, but not on the CPC, the C64 or the ZX81.
Quote from: Gryzor on 10:15, 21 June 10Well, I know I did get my drive misaligned back then with CALLs...
