I have 3 GT65s in the garage, which I don't need. But they are impossible to get rid of due to the cost of posting them anywhere. I will probably dump them during the next clean out.

Bryce.

OMG!!! Dumping CPC hardware, please not!!! The Greeny screeny is well for coding (I use it therefore) and for watching that French GFX spectacle demo/slideshow (of which I forgot it's name).
 
We find a solution for that - for sure! But these wonderful CRTs will never ever get reproduced again! So please don't dump them, that would be a pity.
 
EDIT: You can offer them to the guy buying the 19 CPCs on ebay, they lack CRTs.
 
IMO: To work with a CPC means to use real hardware - that includes in particular the original CRT monitor, because a lot of demos or games won't work with adapted flatscreen solutions.
 
Further, our original CPC monitors have hardware antializing, which makes things look way better on them than on flatscreen monitors.

There are too many of them and most CPC users don't want to work on a green screen.
I like my green screens!

Anyway, you can reserve at least one for me. I'll be happy to carry it home when we'll meet sometime.

Beautiful demo. I'd really like to see more of this in the future.

As far as I have seen & read all Schneider's were QWERTY as well (my 4 Schneiders are all QWERTY).
 
From wikipedia...
 
To achieve a German "QWERTZ" keyboard layout, Schneider marketed a small software to reassign the keys as well as sticker labels for the keys.
 
Cheers,
Shane


Not the Schneider one, but I dumped a similar program called "Deutast".

Anybody seen this idiot here: AMSTRAD CPC464 EMULATOR | eBay

If you are capable of loging in to ebay and buying something, why would you not simply download the emulator for free? He spent so much time explaining why it's legal, that he forgot to mention which emulator he's selling? :D

Ooh, just a thought...SPECIAL REQUEST TO BRYCE, please do not make any more MegaFlash's, Lower ROM board's or USB mouse adapter's.
At the rate things are going I may be able to retire off my current collection of BryceWare.  ;)
In 20 years time I may be able to get a €1000 for the Megaflash alone.  ;D

Add to that my home made, one of a kind MegaROM and I'm all "cashed up" so to speak.

You obviously didn't read the small-print... Page 464, paragraph 6128 of the MegaFlash licence agreement clearly states: §6128: Bryce recieves 10% of any profits made if you sell the device in the future :D

Shelly is also a Sirname in England, so it could be either. I would guess it's a guy.

That's quite a legend. A second 3.5" floppy can be integrated. It can drive up to four floppys. Under FutureOS they are E, F, G and H.
Now... it can by a simple ROM exchange also enabled to run on a 6128!
 
I would get it, but will not bid, because the price will surely getting pretty high.
 
 
Really hope that someone gets it who really USES it, and no creedy collector.
