A recent video from Technopriest.

Is it a first or has one of you already done this one ?

Also : notice the DoubleDecker reference...

BTW, would be sweet to put a page for this if not done yet.

Some great games he used there for the demo :D

Can you really fit 2 3.5" drives in there? I didn't realise they are so slim!

Well, a mundane PC floppy is about 2-3 millimeter wider only compared to the cpc6128 Drive emplacement, but 1 cm shorter in height.

As Portable PC drives are...miniaturised to the extreme... this may be possible actually if this only is 1cm in height...
Also putting 2 Portable computer's drives...


That's how Amstrad should have done it... ;)

Seriously neat mod :) Time to check my junk collection for black laptop drives :) IBM Thinkpads had quite flat floppies with a fairly flat front panel (on the older models), maybe worth a browse through Eeeeybaahy for some?
