Title: CPC Disczines
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 18:09, 26 January 20
Video 1 - EuroWACCI issue 1 (1997)

This is the first of a series of videos which will cover Disczines from the UK and Europe from the 80's and 90's.

Disc Side A - EuroWACCI - 1:12 to 17:23

Disc Side B - Four games - 18:40 to 29:24

Remember that this is a "disc magazine" - so no flashy graphics or music. However, other Disczines took a different approach and I hope to show some of them in the later videos. To reduce the length of this video I scroll thru each text page at a fast pace, so when you want to read a particular page - Quickly hit the PAUSE button!

Video 4 - French Disczine RUNSTRAD from 1992.

I think this is a disc supplement to issue 33 of the magazine but I'm not 100%
If anyone has any info on this please share!

Each page is composed of four screen files totalling over 40K in size.

An excellent mix of text and graphics, just a pity my schoolboy French isn't up to the task of translation.

Video 6 - UK Disczine "IMPACT!" released in May 1994.
Mostly text with a little graphics with a nice little tune from the "MUNSTERS" CPC game(?)

Please Note - Normally I would record a video, review it and then record a 2nd video removing anything too personal, uninteresting or boring. 
This video was recorded about a month ago and C-19 means I'm stuck outside Glasgow so no 2nd vid is possible - now having said that I would suggest jumping the portion of the video from 3:20 to 6:12 as the short stories displayed are not very interesting.

Wow, that Runstrad 'zine looks amazing. It's the kind of "messy design that actually looks quite fab" punk 'zine look that I always associate with print zines, only in disk form. I'll have to tone up my French so I can read it properly! :D

Hard to read? But it's eyetest.ttf, the default font on Windows Phones! ;)
Title: Re: CPC Disczines
Post by: mr_lou on 07:25, 27 June 20
Yea diskmags has to be pleasant for the eyes, so font matters a lot.

I really like how it was done in Ovation #6. That's how I'd do it myself if I ever made a diskmag (on the CPC). One plain colour + a shadow, in two columns  - and make it possible for the user to change colours.

But: Nowadays I (still) feel that diskmags ought to be on blu-ray because it allows for so much more diverse content and it can run almost anywhere.  :)

This has got me thinking... Has anyone hooked up a Blu-Ray drive to a CPC? Possible with an IDE interface and a SATA to IDE adapter? I imagine a CD-ROM drive must have been done at some point?
8-Bit Memoirs CPC blu-ray edition?

I think for a CPC version of something like 8-bit Memoirs, it would make more sense to make a dedicated cartridge.

Disczines (13) - New Arcade 4 by the Power Group

Top quality French disczine from 1992.


Well presented, user friendly with a good mixture of graphics and music.
Unfortunately I can't read French but I'm sure the text is up to the quality level displayed on both sides of this excellent disc.

Disczines (14) AMSTRAD CPC USER NUMERO 1

Spanish disczine from 1990.

Unfortunately option 5 ("Demo Danadora Concurso/Contest Winner Demo" - what contest?) causes the OSSC to lose sync/recording stops, which is a pity as its a cracking little demo.  Also option 7 causes the same problem but I saw this BASIC program "back in the day" -  it mimics a computer meltdown and could be quite funny if you installed it on an unsuspecting victims 6128 - so time to have a look using an emulator!

This particular disczine seems almost commercial in nature - two demos for Dinamic games (Capitan Trueno/Astro Marine Corps.) and also the full version of Army Moves all on side two seems a little unusual.

Anyone know anything about this?

Update and the sound of a penny dropping:

I agree - it might look simple, even primitive in comparison to the "glossy" disczines that came later, but it was made using the tools available back then and it works! :)


Incidentally 1987 was the first year that disczines began to appear in any number for the CPC.

Video 16 - Tree 2

Greek disczine from 2002 with articles in English and Greek.
In this video I look at the following menu options:

Editorial
Invaluable Apoththegmatics
Edifying narratives
M/C programming
Scene news
CPC advertisment

As there are many pages of text in this disczine I run thru the English sections quickly and only show a few of the Greek pages.
The music is provided by Soundtracker modules.

Religious and philosophical musings in a 8-bit zine? I guess that's a first!
